You did read the fine print on that test platform contract: basically states that all parties in attendance get to put the test bike through the Pachaug grinder!

You might want to think about insurance if it grows to more than a few riders. Also, in Massachusetts, anyway: any group larger than 6 needs a permit. CT & RI ??

That would be awesome.. Just let me borrow your CC Hey maybe something can be worked out. Right now We have some of our Demo bikes on the trails testing out the goods. 2012 800XC and a 08 KLR650 along with my KLR but I break stuff lol.. Hope to see you at Twisted some time! If you come by just ask for Shawn (thats me) and we can chat!

Cheers!

@ Twisted$hawn

I applaud your enthusiasm and zest for the community. You asked for opinions and my only one is that GPS files are discussed in person, not on the internet. Even though the routes are legal and all, it's like advertising it to the world. It's not to anyone's benefit to publish routes.

So that said, I'll see you at TT. I look forward to joining up for a nice dirty ride sometime. It's really nice of your place to do coffee and snacks too. Bravo.

To Clear Things Up!!

Hey everyone. I am sorry not to be more specific with the GPX files. This is something that would be strictly for internal use only! These files will be shared with the group on a 10x10 ft screen at TT to figure out a great and fun route that all riders that day can run there bikes on. I am 110% on board with not posting GPX / Maps on the web! See you out there!

Sunday Ride!

Hey Guys.
This Sunday might be a no-go. The weather looks like it will be Rainy. This also gives me another week to prepare for Sundays. I just got the go ahead to start doing this on Wednesday. I promise now with the time I have the Sunday rides will be better and better! I am going to be doing some mapping all week and try and find the best routes for Sunday. If anyone has any trails in mind e-mail me them at shawnj@twistedthrottle.com

Thank You guys!

A quick ride in Pachaug with some booboos

Hey Guys,
A quick Wednesday ride around Arcadia / Pachaug turned out to be great but we did not come out of the woods the same way we went in! Check out the gear shifter on the 2012 Tiger 800xc and My skid plate on the KLR..

Hey J,
Where abouts are you going to ride? I could do a loop Monday night.
