Still riding plenty of dirt but staying mostly in the northern foothills/seaway valley. Need a new front tire as my MT21 is close to roached. Same for front wheel bearings and brake pads all the way around. Or maybe just finish one of the other bikes... Either way it all costs money :)

I can haul two bikes on my trailer or at least four if I borrow my father-in-law's trailer. I'm an early riser, we could leave on Sunday & return on Sunday, no need to camp.
Looks like a great time Tom, just not on my KLR!

I'd be up for something this weekend as the other planned ride is not happening at the moment. I did decide to go riding last weekend at the last minute and had a blast tooling around all the fun roads over on the eastern side of the park. About 600 miles over Sat/Sun with some mild gravel roads mixed in to make for better route connections.

Going to ride some nasty offroad and a bunch of gravel on Sunday, trying to put together a nice 2day mostly offroad loop up here and haven't ridden some portions since last year so need to do some prerunning.

Saturday we will be at our hunting camp which is 18miles of gated logging road from pavement with endless offshoots so this will be a nice weekend of riding. Can meet in/near South Colton or Parishville on Sunday morning after packing up camp if anyone is up this way and wants to see the backwoods.

The group I was riding with was a little too fast. 4 in the hospital in the last year. Two weeks ago they went on a ride to Shamokin PA. 4+ hours nonstop. They got to a detour and had to take a different route. So they tried to make up time by really hauling ass on back roads. I was afraid of hitting deer or what ever so I bailed after 2 hours. I Stopped for a whiz and coffee. Turned around and went home on all the back roads.

SO I went with another group tonight. Bunch O cruisers. I don't fit in with them either. Too frikkin slow. I took them down the oakta trail. One of the few roads around here you can do the speed limit (62) and its a challenge. Its a few miles long and follows the Oakta creek. They went 30 to 35.

Stopped for Ice cream one fella on a Yammy 1800 said My bike was little and had no frame. I agreed. He asked me how much it weighed. I told him 494 lbs full of fuel. I also told him I could not handle one of those heavy bikes, I am just a little shit.

I miss riding with you guys. I will plan a weekend after the september holiday.

David

I miss riding with you too, David. We haven't seen each other all season...that just ain't right.

Lets set something up for September...we can meet somewhere and do another en-mass tag run or something. Those were fun!

Are any of you going to Cromag in VT? I've never been but was considering working it into the schedule this year.

Wife informed me last night that our friends will be in from out of town Sunday _morning_ not evening, so hilariously I have to rescind my previous offer. Will be skipping out of work tomorrow to ride, instead...
