Any trail riding?

last weekend I went riding with drgs2 in Jim Thorpe PA. man he can ride, and damn, I cant. dropped the bike 4 times got the fisrt scratch out of the way (actually the first 15 scratches out of the way). I need more pratice and want to do some local rides. who here has some patience and wants to get some laughs riding with me taking pictures when I fall?

let me know, looking to ride with some of you FF's.

Hey Joe. How far away are you from Burtonsville, md?

You want to ride in the dirt? Or street? I know tons of places to ride off road around here.

Dirt riding is what I am looking to do but putzing around on some roads is cool too. Road riding I dont mind doing by myself. trail riding I feel is best to do with others, plus I am new to it and dont kow where to ride.


what do you ride?

I ride a Triumph speed triple on the street, and a xr650r on the trails.

Definatly lets hook up for some trail riding, havent ridden trails in almost 2 weeks!. Near my house, is a good place with over 50 miles of trails, granted you do not mind riding "illegally".

There arent many legal places around here.

Come out this way and and we'll both look stupid together. Just bought a Tiger and I'm sure I'll put a few scrathes in it. Last bike I rode off road has no peddles and I was chasing my 3 year old on his fifty. Sure hope KRS12Steve and 'poon and Jabba will show me how to keep the tires in the dirt and water out of the cylinders.

Damm, man. We have to ride together. I want to see a tiger in the wild. Used to have one yah know. But it was a steamer, the best looking of all the tigers. In black none the less.

Guys, think that I am going to head out to Greenridge State Park out by Handcock, MD. I have done a lot of camping out there, but never ridden. There are a lot of dirt roads and a specific ORV ride, do not know to much about it. I know that there are a couple streams to cross, and some hills. This will be my first real off road ride on my GS so it should be intresting. It is bout 60 miles west of Frederick. Let me know anyone is intrested.
