I'm also looking for a nice little bike for my 15 year old that won't break the bank. I figure you must know where I can find something!
The DBS is basics, like taking the MSF BRC. Might be a little under your skills, not sure. How much off road riding do you already do?

Bikes for kids are easy to find, but kids are not all the same size, so what size Bike do you need? There was a 2003 XR200 in the orwell area this weekend for $1,000

I went to the BMW RA Rally in Vermont last year. Good time, cool GS course. I'm hoping they have a couple GS rides and courses at the Rally.

This looks fun!

Not sure yet, right now trying to figure out how to wedge this in my work load. I would also like to do a real adventure tour this year. I am thinking we need to find two days worth of mostly off road stuff with a tent night in it. Any one got any good ideas?

Yea! There is always MRP lol!! There are a lot of areas scattered around the daks. You & I road up Powley Rd to rout 10 to Piseco Lake. Perkins Clearing North of Lake Pleasant. There’s always state parks. High Peaks is a nice ride. You could spend days exploring the daks!

I like the looks of that puppy dog trail Chuck posted. You want to do that trip to Maine for a week, there is no way I'm getting a week in my schedule, but, what if we got a bunch together, rode to Vermont, did a day or two on the Puppy dog trail with an overnight someplace. then those who want to go to maine go northeast, and those who want to head home go soutwest.

We can also do the Dacks, I really should know that area much better, just thought the other might be interesting too.
