Eh? Moore Township

@MRXINPAActually I'm on the other side of Smith Gap Road from you!
Just saying...bet my fat arthritic @ss is older than yours! LOL
I drove the first KLR650 in the 80's all over Landsford strip mines when you where in diapers?

But then again looking at your bike list you may be older?! See you there!

11pm, Daah, I didn't even think about going the back way, good idea!

Go the back way to JT. Up over the mountain into Little Gap, go straight thru to Spruce Hollow Road turn right going up to 209. Cross straight over the road becomes Trachsville Hill Rd. This takes you past the southern end of Beltzville Dam and that area. Go straight ~.5miles after the stop sign you will come to a T at Penn Forest Rd. Make the right and go up about another~ .5 Penn Forest will make a Left at the 4Way Intersection. Its a nice winding drive thru that forest until you reach 903. Turn Left and head into JT that way!! Much Better than Lehighton Congested BS

So I got some Age on my Bikes.. Doesn't by definition make me Old. But then again I'm stuck in that Middle Aged Thing of being lazy getting fat and feeling old?

Now, Before you start Talking about Who was doing what in Diapers you need to think a bit before letting those fingers of yours run the rest of your brain. Just to give you a hint of my age, My first bike was a 69Z50 and my first real dirtbike was a YZ80B 1976. If I recall the KLR's where released around 87? In 86 my EOS expired and I put in for a Two Year Extention with Uncle Sam. End of 86 early 87 I had just gotten home or back to Hawa,ii my permanent duty station, from my Second Western Pacific Tour thru Japan, Phililipeans, Okinawa, Korea, I have pics of me and some other MARINES ripping up a Motocross Track in Japan circa 1985 with a few Local Pro Riders from Japan.

Now being that I have a much younger wife and very young children 2 & 3.5 I like to think that Age isnt all that important.

If age were important this party would probably be pretty dull with a bunch of guys and gals of middle age all acting their age

Dirt or road ride

How many are doing the off road ride and how many are doing the on road ride?
I can't decide which bike to bring, the trail bike or the DR650

Whoa! The off road ride is too much for the DR650?! Do you have a side car mounted on it too?
