I guess I'm out then. No matter, I'll be in the garage replacing bearings or something.

Now Rob you know that you can ride that 990 anywhere I can ride my Husaberg and do a better job doing it.. so I will retract my previous statement.. come one and all... Hell a KLR made the ride last time.

I'd prefer Sunday as it's supposed to be warmer (brrrr long ride from PVD). And it gives me Saturday to catch up on sleep from the workweek. The early darkness is killing me already. alcontrast's area would be great--haven't been down there in a while.

weekend

I should be in for a ride this weekend but I would sort of insist on Sunday since it's hunting season and a couple of areas I'd want to hit are used by hunters fairly regularly. There's no hunting in CT on sundays so we won't piss anybody off if we're out riding then. At least not any more than normal...

Bikenstitches- you'd be FAR better off with your newer bike Sunday if it's back up and running.. There are areas we'll ride that I've ridden on my F650 (twice) but if I have my way those will be the easier parts of the ride.. We could always start off with that stuff and then get into the tighter trails later in the day of course. If I'm leading I'll do my best to cater to whomever shows up and what they're riding but so far it looks like predominately small bikes despite the title of this thread..


We really NEED to start a new thread for our group of southern new englanders who are either new, getting back into, or simply slow smaller bike trail riders.. I would have started a new thread already but I haven't come up with a catchy title yet.. "RI/CT Small Bike Crash-o-Rama" is the best I have come up with...

I like it Al... we should stop polluting the big bike thread with small bike rides
