Hope you have studded tires on your bike. Schools closed due to snow again in Western NC.

BPG/Wanderer13/Knybanjo's Ride Info:

We will lead 2 routes leaving Station's Inn@ 8:30 AM each morning. :
  • Friday route (named the "RICHLANDS" route): True DUAL SPORT riding. Read on in this post for details...
  • Saturday route (named the "BROWN MOUNTAIN OHV" route): Hardcore DIRT/TRAIL riding. details in next post...

Friday's route won't be as intense as Saturday's, but still offer lots of challenges and plenty of dirt/trail. Saturday's route will involve riding on twisty paved & gravel roads to a very intense trail riding area.


BOTH RIDES will involve about 35+ one-way miles of the Blue Ridge Parkway to get to/from the riding area. Not a bad thing: people come from all over the country just to ride the Carolina portion of the BRP - it's that good a road. My 250 loves it!
-----------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------
FRIDAY'S "RICHLANDS" route:

DEPART STATIONS INN @ 8:30 AM !! If you can't make it, there are at least 2 more "unofficial rides" leaving at 9 & 9:30 from Freeborne's. To be 100% frank, if you're not in good enough condition to be up and ready at 8:30, don't bother asking us to wait.

FRIDAY'S ROADS/TRAILS
: (about 200+ miles). Very twisty paved and gravel/dirt roads (steep, winding mountain roads), long-unmaintained FS and public roads, numerous water crossings, plus optional hill climbs
and singletrack. One road is best compared to a 14-mile gravel & dirt version of the Dragon. Other "roads" are passable only in a modded truck/jeep (with lots of body scratches), or ATV/bike. These sections are NOT simply "dirt roads" - they are abandoned & severely eroded roads that the wilderness is slowly taking back, with lots of exposed rock, mud holes, deep trenches, downed trees, etc. There are also some premium paved twisty bits, such as the BRP and a stretch of 221 west of Blowing Rock. This route is dual-sporter's paradise.




FRIDAY - BIKES: A true dual-sport bike, 650 or smaller, will work best on the dirt portions, especially the optional stuff. A bigger machine could also pass through, just not as easily, quickly, or with nearly as much fun - you be the judge. A skid plate and hand guards are pretty much necessary.

FRIDAY - YOU: A good positive attitude goes a long way... Sturdy MC-style boots, knees & elbow armor, chest protector/pressure suit would be very handy. We're also assuming you own/wear a helmet...


FRIDAY - TIRES: DOT KNOBBIES. Some of the dirt portions have an inordinate amount of mud, you'll be juuust OK skating through on a 50/50 tire, anything less dirt-worthy would not be fun. Dunlop 606, Kenda Trak Master territory.

FRIDAY - GAS: First rule - start with a full tank, BEFORE we roll out. If that means topping off the evening before, or by getting up early and zipping out to fill up, so be it.

We will have several opportunities for gas, never going more than 75 miles between gas stations. BRING CASH, just in case.



FRIDAY - FOOD/WATER: (to bring along): Definitely bring a Camelback-type hydration system or full water bottle, and a snack or two (crackers, granola bars, jerky, etc.). We'll be deep in the woods on some roads/trails that haven't seen an ambulance/rescue vehicle in over 30 years, if ever... Some food and water present comes in very handy should someone get hurt, have a mechanical issue, or go off-trail and expend lots of energy...

FRIDAY - LUNCH: Most likely grabbing grub at a gas station. Nothing prepared/hot/etc. is available, so bring a sandwich or something substantial if need be. Main goal is NOT to be late for the ADV dinner back at the ranch!

SAFETY: This is motorcycling. You'll be on public roads. Your actions could affect other riders and cages. Don't be a dumb-ass.

Etc:
MORE TO COME AS DETAILS ARE FINALIZED.

Here are some pics from the areas we'll ride on Friday's "Richlands" route:


On the BRP:


Countless Creek crossings (at one point, we'll ride across the Yadkin River)




Just off "Waterfall Road":


This road is just like this... for 14 miles...


One of the optional hill climbs (you can bypass, but why?):


Some of the terrain encountered in the "road":

SATURDAY'S BROWN MOUNTAIN OHV ROUTE (BRP & twisty dirt road to Brown Mountain OHV trails ). $5 permit required, we'll purchase permits at the AM gas stop.


DEPART from STATION'S INN at 8:30 AM !!! If you miss it, there will be at least 2 more "unofficial rides" leaving (from Freeborne's) at 9 & 9:30. This ride is pretty hard-core, if you can't handle being up and ready by 8:30, this ride will kick you @ss...


SATURDAY'S ROADS & TRAILS: (about 140 "road" miles, ?? trail miles).
In the AM we'll be on about 35 miles of Blue Ridge Parkway, then about 35 miles on some great twisty mountain dirt roads en route to Brown Mountain OHV trails. Same for the return trip.
The Brown Mountain OHV trails range from jeep-passable to true singletrack (tight enough that you're leaning the bike from side to side on occasion to fit the bars around trees & rocks). These trails are VERY rough, rocky, steep, rooted, slick, challenging - and fun.


Here's a trail map & guide for Brown Mountain OHV area: http://www.cs.unca.edu/nfsnc/recreat...untain_orv.pdf



SATURDAY'S BIKES: A true dual-sport bike, 650 or smaller, will work best. KLR/DR/XR 650, LC4, etc. - with a competent pilot - can negotiate these trails with care. Anything bigger/less capable would be an ordeal, unless you stay on the main trail (trail 1). 450's and smaller will have a riot. A skid plate and hand guards are definitely necessary.

FRIDAY - YOU: A good positive attitude goes a long way... Sturdy MC-style boots, knees & elbow armor, chest protector/pressure suit are necessary. We're also assuming you own/wear a helmet...

SATURDAY'S TIRES: DOT KNOBBIES. Again, Dunlop 606 & Kenda Trak Master territory.

SATURDAY'S GAS: First rule - start with a full tank, BEFORE we roll out. If that means topping off the evening before, or by getting up early and zipping out to fill up, so be it.

We will have several opportunities for gas, never going more than 75 miles between gas stations. BRING CASH, just in case.

SATURDAY'S FOOD/WATER: (to bring along): Definitely bring a Camelback-type hydration system or full water bottle, and a snack or two (crackers, granola bars, jerky, etc.). We'll be deep in the woods on some roads/trails that haven't EVER seen an ambulance/rescue vehicle, and likely never will. Some food and water present comes in very handy should someone get hurt, have a mechanical issue, or go off-trail and expend lots of energy...

SATURDAY'S LUNCH: We'll grab some pre-packaged food at the gas station in Collettsville (no hot/prepared food). If it suits you, bring a sandwich or something substantial. Main goal is NOT to be late for the ADV dinner back at the ranch!

SAFETY: This is motorcycling. You'll be on public roads. Your actions could affect other riders and cages. Don't be a dumb-ass.

Etc:
MORE TO COME AS DETAILS ARE FINALIZED.

Here are some pics from the areas we'll ride at Brown Mountain OHV area:

I see you've found the Richlands. One of my favorite 4 wheeling spots growing up. In high school, my friend with his brand new license, took a stock, 3-on-the-tree, long bed, open diff, 2wd Chevy through there. I have never seen a stock truck that sat that low to the ground. We tried very hard to talk him out of it. We had to get creative a couple of times, but he only had to be yanked once though.

Now we are both a little wiser. He has a Yamaha 250, and I've got a KLR 650. Ok, so maybe he's a little wiser. I'm trying to see if I can come up for the rendezvous, but my son's 2nd birthday is on May 12th and I missed his first one. Maybe I can talk my wife into staying at my grandmother's in Wilkesboro that weekend.

Ah, the Station Inn. I lived about a mile from there for about 6 months. Didn't get to explore the roads much, but did a lot of commuting to ASU.

I now live on the other side of Asheville. If I don't get to make it, y'all have fun.

Fred
