Had a great time this weekend at MMM. Riding with Troy, Chuck, Matt ((Threadkiller) and Mike (RTL) is always fun.

Matt put us on some good roads and we had over 200 miles for the two days and even did some single track.

Thanks to RTL for the beer and special brew and it was cool watching that big bike get around.

Just like to thank Kevin for putting on a great event. I think everyone had a good time.

For everyone that couldn't make it you missed out on two good days of riding.

Wonder where I can get one of those?

SO I can hook up a small air compressor to my battery (like your Threadkiller)



Sloans has them on the counter by the registers. I bought a couple of them and made accessory plugs out of them for phone/GPS chargers.

If you are looking for one with a built in inline fuse, you can get them at cyclegear and other similar places. If you are looking for the cheap direction, look for a trailer/camper online source. I bought a box of these some time ago for cheap....here is one on Amazon with the inline fuse for less than $5 shipped with PRIME:

Update....I just ordered 3 of them....will let you have one for the $5 if you want???
And then get one of these

Our last Sequatchie Valley ride

Been a while since our last SV ride....finally got around to posting some of the vids this week while on vacay. The wirless here is damn slow, so its taking a while. Below are the first three.

First one is our good friend and fellow rider and navigator, Senor IHF. Like most rides, he pulls over early on and starts taking clothes off....shicka shicka bow.....and always scares the new guys on the ride. PLAY THEM ALL IN 1080P.


Second vid is one of the first creek crossings. Fortunately everyone got across.


Third vid - my youngin wasnt prepared for the little rut/stream. The only way over this is to jump it....fortunately he wasnt going too fast.

SV- part II

Every so often, we tell someone to go the wrong way.....this was one of those situations.....but heck, we made it thru


Little climb (as always, much steeper and gnarlier in person)


Some of the fun woods sections in SV:

How far is SV from Nashville?? I've never ridden there but it looks like a lot of fun. Is it strictly offroad or do you need a dualsport?? It looks like I would have a good time on my CRF250 and I would hate my life on my DR650. lol

I've seen several guys on 650's. But, yes, 250 would be better. Its about 1hr45min to 2 hours from Nashville, down the 24.
We regularly will hit some connector roads to connect trails or gas up, so license plate is a plus. But at the same time, have ridden with many there with no registrations. We see ATVs runnin the roads all the time. Pretty laid back down there. Riding is awesome.

Sequatchie

Where is this ride taking place? I live in the valley and have never found riding this good. I live about 5 miles north of Pikeville, on top of the plateau overlooking cold springs on the on the east side of the valley.

HeY DCAR - - do you have any trails in your neck of the woods? WOuldn't it be cool if you did and we got together and tried to tie the SV stuff together with stuff near Pikeville . . . and make a big ride out of it.

DO you have any trails over near pikeville - - towards Dunlap?

Ihatefalling, I don't know of any except some great ones on hunting lease land. But I have not figured out who to contact to get permission when they are not hunting. I saw the videos of the post avove my last on about their ride in the valley and wanted to know where it is.

I have a friend thats from pikeville thats s'posed to turn me onto some trails that run from the valley up to the top of the mountain, also have a guy I work with that lives in Dunlap that knows some ride'n trails.

Hope'n they mite be a way to interconnect some of them but will have to use some back roads to hook them up, give it time & mite be a all dirt trail to be found eventualy.

I still get plum giddy when I ride my DRZ. I put 160 miles on it today with my new seat widener thing and it has made all the difference. Hung out with some friends on the Roaring river and ate fried chicken in Gainesboro. The roads in that area are awesome and I still can't wipe the smile off my face. What a great bike! What a great day!

Sounds cool. Im casually shipping for lighter DS bike myself. You bargain hunters keep your eyes peeled. (Nothing like spending someone else's $$$.)
