Do you think they understand these bikes weigh 500+ lbs? My DRZ400 was on the heavy side for some of the single track I was on down there. I do recall tons of fire roads and two-track roads that would be awesome!

Yea I'm trying to think of how they could tie it all together. Most of those fire roads you mention don't really go anywhere, they just run all over the property. I wish there was a cool way to get the riders from WP over to Hickman. Although, if they are on big bikes it might not be that bad for them ???

Leading is a strong word, more like wandering around up front.

Join us! I'll be on the DRZ, SS = KLR, 2fast is trying to decide on the Ninja or the Street Glide. (He did pretty good on the Street Glide down road 143 last year.) Sounds like a small bike ride.

If you get to Pleasant View, I'll trailer us up. That will save you some highway running.

Crap.. you said MMM. I read it LBL.

No, I will stay in a small group, and on a small bike in the mountains.

You still need to come to LBL, though.

I DO need to get to LBL with ya'll and SOON.

Tomorrow we are taking BLT's son out to practise some light offroad.
We've got another friend Charlie (who is too goofy to figure out how to get on ADV) who is bringing his son too.
Will be a learners day.


Hey take Spinnit's @$$ to LBL. He wants to go maybe.

He's always talking trash about how LBL is for street riders . . .

Here is a tentative plan - I'll leave Pleasant View at 7 am Sunday. Maybe ride, maybe trailer. I/we can hook up with the Clarksville boys, grab a biscuit, and head toward LBL.

There, we have the beginning of a plan. Y'all start making it better.

Treemuncher, Slopez, are y'all in town Sunday?

I should be able to get today's job finished up and then I can play for a while tomorrow.

Are you planning on meeting up at the south end of LBL or the middle end? And where do you pIan to park ? If you decide to meet at the south end, I think that Bauer's (the old Cindy;s Catfish Kitchen) on 79 will likely let you park any trucks and trailers on their lot while you ride. They have a buffet breakfast over there. Not the best, not the worst

Other south end parking would be the USACE boat launch at Lick Creek just east of Dover.

Now what do I ride??? The Big Blue Mule or the smaller Big Red Pig?

I know of a really sweet road in the south end - all freshly repaved and a rockin' good ride on the street bikes.
