Is this mostly gravel? I'd like to attent it but I still have the stock Dunlops on my Versys. I've been hitting the local gravel and I haven't had any problems yet but it's all flat.

Prophead, I would probably say, no, not a good idea to try and tackle bad creek on street tires. Like I said before, I did the previous trip with the Kendas but they do provide a little more bite than streeties. The first hill after the pipe bridge is quite a challenge but pails in comparison to the downhill/uphill section at the lake lunch spot. There were other sections that were muddy/sandy/gravely but the uphill/downhill sections are where I would be concerned about dumping a sweet Versys.


Who's coming so far:
SCFalconry
JALnSC
Asheville Thumper
Justin* (Maybe his new bride will join him again?)
KG4LHO
one or two guys I met locally that may be joining the forum soon
and waiting on confirmation from Bbasso

Marty is posting up on KLR650.net to see if GreenRiverRider and Michelle want to ride again or anyone else from over there that would like to join us.

Anyone thinking about camping fri. or sat. night at Keowee-Toxaway SP? Cheers, Wesley

For what its worth. I think there will be a bunch of DS riders at Blue Ridge M/C camp that weekend. Likely some will end up at Bad Creek.

Groovy. I guess I'll have to wait until I wear off enough of my Dunlops to justify a pair of Shinko 705s.

Tour de Pisgah is 9/18-9/20

We should probably plan around that or plan to attend. There will be rides for all skill levels all over Western NC and self guided tours too.

Thanks but will probably still run our own deal. Might like to meet up with some of the guys for a short sunday ride but we are still planning on camping at Keowee-Toxaway SP. Wesley

Y'all gettin' ready?? JALnSC and I went for a ride today.

Joe thought his bike needed a bit of color, so he dumped it in a slick mud hole that we went out of our way to pass back through.
