Doesn't matter to me.

There really isn't anything fun as far as trails around me anymore. Lots of gates, posted signs, and trail cams.

Maybe we can get Conibear involved in this...he knows some great places. Failing that can you get to my place in Petries Corners (Google time)?

I think I remember how to get to your place. Number 4 Rd?

I would probably wimp out and trailer the XT to your place, if you had room for me to park. I haven't ridden that damn thing over 20 miles at a pop yet this year, it's turned into a commuter bike, and a KLR has Goldwing-level comfort in comparison. I'd rather be fresh at the start of the ride instead of whupped.

Excellent!

Deposit is taken on the Duc...she's headed to Florida in a couple weeks. I'll be bringing the KLR down for the Bk.Rd.Rnr ride...if I still have that!

If anyone is going to ride something other than dirt roads, I can finagle some time... I just need to schedule around an anniversary party for the in-laws, bringing my son around to colleges, my wife just thinking I'm a dirty rat for even thinking of riding...

Weekdays are still better than weekends, but with planning a weekend is possible. For my areas, weekday mornings are better as they are at best 'gray' areas.

I can't do mornings, but I can squeeze in a weekday after work some night.... Just need a couple days notice so that I can tell the wife that she's watching the kid that night :)

I'm ready to ride. I even got my XT inspected yesterday. It was only a month overdue.

There are a couple of KLR's on the FM at fire-sale prices. Are you sure you're still going to have a bike to ride tomorrow?
