Hey Swamp. I see you used to race with WERA. I knew you looked familiar from reading your report. Anyways I'm prolly gonna get in touch with you about some maps. I am trying to acquire a WR250 to do some Dualsporting on. I'm headed out this weekend to Tally and going to look at a WR in Birmingham. Hopefully take her with me.

My grandfather lives in Montgomery, maybe you can show me some of your single tracks in AL. But note of caution. I SUCK at riding a dirt bike. Or hell anything that isn't a street bike.

BADASS Ride Reports though. I've spent literally hours reading them. I like the whole Ahhhh fuck it riding style and approach to DS you have. Rock on man.

Great RR

I usually take my time reading these but I could not stop on this one. Great story telling. Thanks!

"so i ride that bitch.."





I'm interested in checking out some of them thar single track trails you are cutting in. I'm relatively new to dual sporting but I'm picking it up fast. Like to see how I stack up on some more challenging terrain than Louisiana can offer. Any plans for the Monday before Thanksgiving? Might be traveling through there with the bike in tow around that time. Hopefully with a cooler full of deer.

Just want to thank swamp for the inspiration. Whenever I want to get amped on riding I Reread this thread. Currently on the road now, holed up in Moab. Brought my truck so I won't live up to the unkept hippy dirt twirler status but some days I'm damn close.

Maybe I will hit up Alabam on the flip side.

What did you do to your seat? Is that a seat concepts seat with some sort of gel under the cover? Did you cut the foam down for the gel?

I have the seat concepts but find it too firm even after having them make me a softer foam. I wonder if a gel insert would help.

no i cut a big hole in the seat foam. went to walmart, bought one of those cheapo turkey hunting seats made of waffle jelly, then stuffed the jelly in the hole. i bought a new seat cover off of e-bay and stapled it on.

he he. i really need to get the chupacabra running again. its such a cool bike.
