The tracks are service tracks for the nuclear plant.

From Yesterday's Ride

Alan's DR 650.



Augie's new KLR 650.



Several of the roads we covered featured huge boulders.

I will definitely be going for a ride this weekend. The weather.com 10-day forecast, at present, calls for 70% chance of rain in Saturday and 40% on Sunday. Am guessing the real off-roading will be pretty muddy. Don't want to limit the choices for the light-weight dual sporters by asking them to play nursemaid to my Sherman-class tank shod with Anakee 3s.

I am up for a 'big-boy bike' ride and will probably head up into the mountains for some fire-roading on Sunday.

I'd be up for a ride Sunday... I think the Uly is more of an Abrams than a Sherman tank, but either way it would be good to hit some fire roads.

How about meeting at 9:00 AM at the Bojangles on Rt. 274, Bessemer City Exit, off of Interstate 85?

Augie, Alan, Larry, Loren, JMforPres, Katoom119, Evan, VStromNC, ParallaxBill, et al.: Who's up for a ride?

Sunday

OK well for the small bikes do we want to stay local or head to the hills? I'm good either way, but some people wanted to sleep!
What's up let me know I'm more than happy to stay here, just gotta fix my flat from yesterday!
