I've got a fishing rod holder mounted on a small cooler that would be perfect for hauling crutches on a bike. Much easier to remove than duct tape
Is this one out of the borders?

That may be just out. Will have to check the rule book. If you have to swim or fly to the tag it may be out of bounds.
It's worth extra effort points tho. We need to have an awards banquet this fall and give out ADV teeshirts. Everybody
toss in enouth to by a shirt. Everybody wins one. No losers, all good fun.

I wish that little bike was available here.

I never got it up to the claimed 84.6mph, but with me and another dude, it got up to 100-120km/h pretty quick. Was nimble as hell, and if we did the math from km/ liter to mpg, it gets better than that article, and he gets about 85-95 mpg.

Once the tea time chat is over and riding commences you might find this tag on the TriTOR boundary and Durham County line. Look for the bullet hole under the "C" in "Center" or pack a bigger caliber then I normally do if you are looking to recreate the effect on one of of the many duplicate signs on the range boundary

That's one of my favorite areas to ride in the TriTOR boundaries. That and the area north of there. If the dipsticks at Powerball would do their job, I'd buy a decent chunk of land around there.

Hey Schnabba, Just throw one of these on your Tiger and you'll have plenty of room for crutches.




It's a leaner too!

Grab #773 - Isham Chambers Rd

Agree - that's some wonderful riding area.

Tag #774

Wouldn't recommend recreating this exact pic with anything other than a DS - just off the road, but down a rutted embankment to a spot where kayakers access the river. The bridge in the background (you see it, right?) is one bridge upstream from Chicken Bridge bridge. Oh yeah, it's a boundary tag too.

As an alternate tag, get a pic of your bike that includes the bridge and the river.



Get better soon, Walker!

Might need an alternate tag, like maybe that bridge from the road before the rut? I'm sure most of the guys on here could get to that the way it is though!!

Yup, I'm sure Chris' CBR would be down there if he was in town! Alternate tag: the bridge and river (taken on the correct side of the boundary).

Thanks walker!
