Hampton Roads, Pigs in the Dirt: March 15th (tenatively)

Ok, well I got my suspension back and am currently putting it back on the 640 so I though I'd go ahead and start this thread.

I thought it would be a fun day if we all took our dual sports out to Slades Offroad Park in Surry.. It's $15 for the day.. Slades has some double track trails, a big open sandy area and a good bit of mud for those who want to wallow in the sloppy stuff A word of warning though, Don't go blasting through any mud holes unless you've checked the depth already.

I would probably want atleast a 50/50 tire on the bike to go out there.. I wouldn't think it would be much fun with a street oriented tire.

I'm open for dates if anyone wants to suggest one.. I figure a few weeks out to give people time to prepare So maybe Saturday March 21st, or Sunday the 22nd? What does everyone else think? We can make this a rain or shine even, or we can just go on a nice day.. The sand will be easier to ride in if it's wet though

I'll go!!!

Who's got a dirtbike I can borrow???

Don't know if the Wee would make me say "weeeee" too much in that terrain......especially with the Tourances.

Then again I am insane, so I may show up anyhow.
Anyone carry a tow rope and know advanced first aid???

Well I vote the 15th now, we have a friend that was supposed to come up this weekend, but had to postpone her trip till the 21st

So if everyone else is cool with it, we'll make the day on the 15th instead.

Oh and I Funified my 640.. I just got to ride it around the block for the first time and I have to say with the new suspension the handling is better and after the carb mods I did I can easily loft the front wheel in 1st and 2nd.. I'm goign to get arrested

Sounds good to me, thanks. What did you do to the carbs? I'd like to get some more HP out of the 650....

15th? I think I can do that.

Two up on the Wee through the woods????

Should provide plenty of Kodak Moments.

What is the response time of Life Flight again and where is the nearest Trauma One Center?

Well I'll obviously be there... Don't know if i'll be on the 640 though, since I will have just gotten it back together and i've never ridden it...

might just bring my little 105sx... quite the contrast to all your huge ass bikes!

Haha 2 up on the wee with street tires in the sand.. I think I'd remove all the turn signals before heading out there if I were you Does your Wee have a skid plate? You may drag it's belly through some sand when going over some of the woops out there.


As far as the date goes, nothing is set in stone and we can always go out there more than just once.

I already "removed" the front turn signals in a parking lot in Maryland. "it was at a funny angle"

And no, no skidplate as of yet Soon though!! Hopefully before LF Camp Out. If we came out we would just be passing through, say hello, maybe try and bum a ride off someone. The little enduro that could is the next bike I will be bringing to the stable. Momma wants a few things for around here first, then it's on. Thinking smallish DR or XR.

Well if you got a little dr/xt/etc you could toy around on it and then teach the girl how to ride... and then you could be a gentleman and let her have the little bike, but you know, since you don't have a bike anymore, you absolutely must have a KTM525 or somesuch to be able to ride with her.. its a bonding activity you know... You need a sweet enduro bike just so you can spend more time with her etc... Hey could work right?
