We should go for a ride down route 11. I have my old loop posted somewhere on here. It's a 150ish miler.

Food is always good.

I'm up on Blue Mountain in Linden, but drive into town every day to go to work. I'm on a blue and white F800.

I am a big fan of the Hume Road to Leeds manor loop, Hume road has no markings on it, hardly any cars ever, and most of it is surrounded by open fields so you don't have to worry about some deer jumping out of the trees in front of you.

I've been thinking about Taskers Gap, anyone ever do it on a bigger DS?

I led a group of large bikes around Taskers a few years ago, but I haven't done it myself (I was on my 400). They got through and had a good time, but we did skip the hardest sections.

I will be over there this weekend if some people want to hook up for a ride. Planning to ride across Peters Mill first, then tour Taskers and back.

You could get the DL down Peters Mill. I don't know about the Taskers side though. I think it would be...interesting. Bring a skid plate!

I'm working this weekend.

With all these locals coming out of the woodwork we need to have a local RTE soon.

NOTE: GoPro makes all rocks look smaller and flattens out the terrain. You have been warned.

I haven't seen an 800 go through there(peter's mill trail), but I take my xr650l through there pretty regular with one set of tipy toes . The trails off the sides can get real rough, like basketball size rocks and larger, all sittin on top of the ground. It could be an expensive ride. Some of the stuff off the sides is super sketchy even on my xr400, but she is kinda heavy, unlike those fancy, orange, mountain bike lookin things I see rippin through there.
