Thanks. I posted it in the Macguyver thread.

I credit that thread for inspiring me to work through the problem with what I had available

Riding this Saturday

Hi All,
I live in Greenville and have been dual sporting for a number of years now (just bought a Terra 650). I like the technical stuff and would love to ride some of the trails in this thread. I usually do Pisgah, Horse Pasture, Bad Creek, Gorges, Green River, Pinnacle Mtn, etc. I'm planning to ride this Saturday, usually do 150 miles or so, ping me if you'd like to ride.

Shawn

I've been looking for someone who will attempt some ATV trails with me.

I'm down, just a matter of timing. My schedule gets pretty busy this time of year.

I'm out for Saturday unfortunately. Though we need to catch up before long. If you picked up a husky, did you sell the dakar?

I really need to sell the DL-650 before I think about hitting these trails, especially after seeing the ones Stretch has in mind.

A truck hit me from behind doing between 50-60 in September. I spent a couple days in the hospital, fortunate to still be around. The Dakar is totalled; waiting to see what his insurance will cover, may keep it, it's fixable, but would be a good bit of work. The Terra is awesome, hard to believe it's the same motor, unbelievably smooth and powerful, really like the bike.

Sucks about the bike, but could have been much worse I guess. I was looking at the Terra earlier this year - it seems like an ideal platform.
