On another note...going to be riding mutiple days in early Oct out of the cabin up off Old Samson Rd. Dates to follow. Would welcome any of the locals that want to ride with us.

Our gang will be composed of 690, 625, DRZ400 and probably a KLR.
Hey TW,
So I take it you went with the 690?

She still has stock gearing for now. I did the idle procedure last night and it runs even better now....

I put in over 600 miles this weekend on her. Gonna need to order a new rear tire tomorrow...

At first I thought that it was weaker with the new mapping but it is just really smooth. Still 3rd gear wheelies but now very controllable dirt power slides with predictable handling. Pretty sweet.

Good to meet you today Lost Marbles. Another great ride day. We found a lot of new roads and forest service "trails"... Put in @ 85-90 miles on dirt today.

Hope I didnt spook ya with the wheelie. If I did then sorry.

Hope to ride with you again soon.

Yep...went with a 690. Got some big plans for it if I can get the mapping sorted out.

I'm lettin Sides do all the testing of maps, but I'll map mine as soon as I get back into town.

Glad the map worked out for ya Sides. I'll be hittin ya up as soon as I get back.

Hate I'm missing the ridin, but we'll have to get together and ride out of the cabin in early Oct.

Ride safe guys.

Are the Thursday rides usually off road/gravel oriented? I don't know if I can make it this week, but thought I'd ask in case.

I'm looking forward to checking out the riding around Wilkesboro.

It depends on who shows up and what the majority wants. Attendance has varied from 4- 8 people. It has rained the last two times.

It is also getting darker sooner and playing with Deer in the hills is not my favorite sport....

I hear ya' about the deer. They sure have become a problem.

We could draw straws to see who leads the pack and call it "Deer Roulette"!

Anybody planning to show today?

It is looking like another good chance of rain and a lot of busy schedules....

I will be there. Sonic at 6:30, right?

I ended up with some free time this afternoon and will be there around 3. Figure I'll just go joy riding around bit, maybe to Kerr Scott Lake or whatever...

See whoever shows up at Sonic.
