Don't miss any of it. And we got new stuff for the first time in years.
What part of Houston? I've still got a shack down in Sharpstown.

Thinking of riding the trails at Mocasin Gap with my son, him on his XR80 and me on my F650GS. Anyone have any experience with the these trails? I hear they are wide, to accommodate the the SxS's.

Thx...np

Welcome, and sweet ride. That's 100 percent blue loop capable!

My meds are rarely "right" Joe. But hey, I'm consistent. I'm always pissed about something.

Yo Albie! Just wondering if you have a lawn to mow at the new place? I'll ride all the way out there just to get a pic of you pushing a lawnmower.

Welcome! Hella first dirt bike! If you want to get baptized by fire meet Eric, Tim and I at the trail head of the blue loop on Mill Creek tomorrow at 10:00. If a speed bump gets you excited it will quite a thrill.

Judging from the broken orange bits I saw on the Blue Loop, "Capable" isn't what comes to mind.

I rode the blue loop, on a little XR80 last year, with my son, on his XR70.



Here's video of a Super Tenere on the blue loop.

Just because you can ride an s10 on the blue loop does not mean you should.

The second time my son was on a dirt bike we did the blue loop including work hill. He was on a TTR 225. It was pretty slow since he did in mostly 1st gear. I figure the pieces probably involved a little more speed.

That video was on the very beginning of the loop which is a super highway compared to the back side. I'd like to see the video of them climbing work hill...

Absolutely!! Also just checking in, I'm 100% good to go. Chain lubed, everything checked over, tire psi adjusted, etc. Now I feel like I'm just watching the clock waiting for tomorrow AM to roll around

The weather for Cass, AR looks good until about 3-4 PM. I don't think it will be an issue.

Mluker I have about the same background as you including a little time at hallett. Rode mainly sportbikes minus a short lived stint of some MX stuff. I never thought I could have fun with 38hp but trail riding is a blast! You really ought to give it a whirl with us tomorrow am.
