Re: MotoMorini ADV bike

I couldn't find where they said how much it would weigh. If that number was a good thing it seems like it would have been in the press release.

Re: Mountain Ridge 10/18, 10/19, and 10/20

We hauled the bikes up to Bedford Thursday night and got out to the park at 9a Friday when they opened. We explored more than half the trails there and I think this place holds a lot more potential for getting our kids started out on dirt bikes. https://photos.smugmug.com/Motorcycles/Dual-Sport-Ride...

Thanks Bruce.

We're always looking for someplace to take the kids to ride.

Re: Riding Michaux

Yep, anytime I see an open gate in michaux I ride it! My dad used too say that sometimes it's easier too ask for forgiveness than for permission. I had a hunter yell at me one time and said some things, I just politely waved and tried really hard to keep off the throttle :roost: I'll just never und...

Re: Mountain Ridge 10/18, 10/19, and 10/20

How'd this ride go? A couple of friends and I are headed up there tomorrow night to ride on Friday and Saturday. Never been there and wanted to check it out before the end of the season - they shut down apparently after this weekend. Just curious about what we can expect there? I'll ride all day on ...

Re: Suspension advice - Shop for lowering?

I'm familiar with these guys: https://www.mrpmotorsports.com They have a great reputation for the track day guys for suspension set up. Give them a call to see if they can help you on your Husky. They're in Pasadena MD. But again, I think you can probably reduce your reach to the ground by nearly 2"...

Re: Suspension advice - Shop for lowering?

I second that about just saying no to lowering. I've got an inseam between 29-30" and can attest that you can actually get used to having to slip off the saddle to get a foot down. And you'll always enjoy the ground clearance if you ride any gnarly off-road. Try a lower seat or even customize the se...

Re: A DAMN long way from home

It's the first time I've been back out there since 2015 when we rode the TAT. I feel like I checked off my bucket list for the Rockies on this ride so I don't see going back soon. There's so many great places to ride and so little time....

Re: A DAMN long way from home

There was an odd thing about this ride. My friends and I rode the Trans America Trail in 2015 and it goes over Cinnamon Pass. I distinctly remember that we all thought it was the most challenging riding we'd ever done (on KLRs loaded for camping and a 3 week trip). I remember back then thinking oh c...

A DAMN long way from home

I've just returned from a weeklong romp up and down the Rockies in Colorado. We rode the Continental Divide Trail from south to north and then turned back south on the Colorado Backcountry Discovery Route that was recently published by the folks at BDR and Butler Motorcycle Maps. My schedule was a l...
