Got to admit it, that shrimp got my mouth a watering! What a great little bike for such a perfect day! Thanks for taking us along!

Know the area and love the report. Especially the scent of Old Bay seasoning.

I'm more or less local and never realized that this place existed. Sounds like I may have to get out and explore one of these days.

I'm curious, what is the legal situation with the trails you rode? I'd be surprised if it was OK to have gone off of the main roads like you did.

I lived in OC during several summers in the 80s and remember that there were a couple of places around to get some mild off-roading in. I can't remember where, and I'm sure it's all housing developments anyway by now.

Thanks

Vaish,

It is amazing to me that you have viewed this short Delaware trip report from India! I hope to see your country one day. Your Yamaha SZ looks like a great bike, and with the right tires it would be a lot of fun on these tracks.

Ride Safe,

MARTYJK,

Thank you for comenting on the short ride report. My 16 year old son spent part of the summer in Australia and absolutely loved it. He said it is a biker's paradise.

Wishing you all the best,

skysailor,

I'm glad you enjoyed the brief report. I have to agree with you on both points; the little XT 225 is a very capable little bike, and just thinking about the shrimp makes me hungry again.

Thanks,

I'm glad you enjoyed the report. Northern Georgia is a great part of the country, send me a PM if you can't find Old Bay locally!

Thanks,

motojunky,

I'm impressed that you lived in OC during several summers in the '80's and are still alive and posting! We are from the same generation.

The Assawoman area does not have many visitors during the off-season. I met the resident Park Ranger (and his family, who also live in the Refuge), and the Ranger asked me to respect any closed gates, watch out for wildlife, and try not to get stuck.

One great thing about the little XT225 is that it is not intimidating at all.

Ride Safe,

Just Plain Dave,

Thank you for the kind remarks. The little Yamaha XT225 is an awesome bike. I highly recommend it.

Take Care,

Good report

There is a lot to be said about lightweight DP motorcycles. Truly less is more is this case. Thanks for posting you ride.

BlueSkyGuy,

I couldn't agree more; a little bike like the XT225 is perfect for exploring everything from twisty backroads to tight single track. Plus, it is easy to pick up!

Ride Safe,
