I'm a new guy:) Henry Martin sent me on over to have a look. I actually live in Bondville which is only 15 minutes away from Jamaica. I know a ton of dirt roads all over that area. as far as class 4 roads go, however, I know most all of them but I wouldn't take my bike on almost all of them. Only my woods bike.
Anyway, it's in May? I have a bunch of work to do on my bike so I hope I have it ready. I'll keep an eye on this and see how it goes. If it all works out (most likely it will) I'm in!!
If you'll have me

I would love to find a way from here to there. dirt roads and paved back roads from home to Conway to start the trip. I will have a GPS (Zumo 660) by then so I can go that route, or if anyone from this area is making the trek and either wants company or will share a route suggestion I'd love it.
I'd like to meet up with Henry and possibly ride back to VT together?
Thanks guys

I'll see if my wife will deliver a bunch of super dry firewood in my truck if I load it up!!! That's where they rip you. I think it's at least $7 an arm load at the state park.
And it would be cool to show my boys members of the tribe in all their glory
Haaa!

Don't be making up stories now. I rode with Guy before...there were almost scary routes, and not-on-this-bike routes.

Hint: If you are following Guy into a corner as he clears it at 60mph on gravel, don't assume you'll do the same, especially if his bike wears knobbies and yours doesn't.

Ummm...... I rode with him without knobbies, shot steering stem bearings, god knows what else was wrong with his KLR
I'll follow him, well, almost anywhere

Hopefully, by May one of my bikes will be running and reliable. Maybe I should pre-run some routes on street tires and see if they scare me. Then I could confidently say whether or not a route is big bike friendly. Or, I could strap my spare KLR engine on the back to simulate the added weight of a second cylinder, then run the routes with street tires. Yeah, that's the ticket!















Oh, and by the way,

IN!
