I currently have my dr650 downtown and all my other bikes in storage but I rotate them occasionally so later in the season I might be riding an xs650, xt500, or Superglide.

My riding 'goal' for this season is to check out all of the dirt / gravel roads in York county and around the Susquehanna river. I'm down for all street riding too though.

I kinda feel like this is a dating website ad... and its making me feel gross. I'm basically just looking for cool people to ride with around Bmore.

I too live in the city, and have a bike that craves the dirt, but I never seem to find it. If your willing to lead, I am willing to follow!! (said that to my first date, and it got me in all sorts of trouble. You would think you could trust a priest, but I digress!!)

Seriously, lets put something together!!

My wife says it makes me look "More youthful", so I figure if I grow it out enough, soon I'll look my mental age!!

Heres to reentering my teens!!!

Lets do it. I know of a fair amount of dirt within an easy ride of the city. Its mostly in York County PA, along the Susquehanna river, or in Michaux State forest. Some of it I have ridden, and some I have only seen in photos and on maps... but I want to go exploring this season.

I'll put a few routes together and start a Bmore dual sport thread and see if we can get some rides going. Most of the rides would be somewhere between 80/20 and 60/40 pavement to dirt ratio. I don't know of any trails near Bmore, so the dirt is all dirt roads.

I imagine there's a number of folks who could chime in & get you good & lost on some trails/tracks in NoMD/SoMD/WeMD. If you have the ability, you might want to specify if the roads or tracks are big bike friendly, single track, etc. If you do, say, 80/20 pavement/dirt that's big bike friendly, I might be tempted to see how the SV tracks in dirt. But if you say 'hardcore singletrack', then Mick's gonna break his other leg.

What I'm talking about is big bike friendly, as they are all real public roads. I have ridden a fair amount of dirt in York county on my 1979 xs650 and my buddy on his 2008 SV650. I think you'll do fine... as long as you aren't running track day tires.

Jax's dirt road file RULES! He sent it to me last year. His file, Google maps satellite view, and reading ride reports is how I put together most of my dirt road routes around Bmore.
