KDX200 is an underrated bike for FRO

Oh, I don't know.

Steve and Mrs Enduro ride KLX 140s; Misty rides a TT R125.  

They seem to always make it. :ride:

If you mean underrated as in "gems that get the job done" then I fully agree :thumbsup:

Nothing wrong with Team Green. I probably would have gotten one if wasn’t lazy in needing a magic button in my life.

Mrs and I will be up Sunday weather permitting.

Whatever happened to the ancient Greek brothers Bob and Chris are they still riding? One of my goals is to ride with them soon this year.

Had a great intro ride with Mark today. We rode 21.5 miles. I hope that 12 maybe even 15 miles were new to Mark.

Hey Pat,

It was a great ride.  Thanks for showing me some new spots.  Im in again for this Saturday. I ride slow-medium pace

If state police are being used to check permits on private land, that is some epic waste of state resources!  
Hey, welcome to New Jersey. Oh, Pa too.

Yes, underrated bikes that are  inexpensive and get the job done. The KDX200/220 is a winner, but a bit taller than Misty's and Steve's bikes

I'm looking to ride on Saturday, but I have to pick-up my bike in the morning. Should be there at 11:30, ready to ride around 12noon.

Chris rides regularly, Bob had a quadruple heart bypass the week after Dirty Santa. He is recovering well and expects to be riding very soon. Maybe as soon as this weekend. Bob will be taking it easy, and Chris, well we know what kind of trails @cdk considers "easy warm up trails"

I may end up regretting selling my 230f for that reason

Probably looking to ride Sunday... primarily singletrack. Pace negotiable. I can hang pretty good with faster guys, as long as we’re not going race pace. I can ride slower pace too, as long as we are in the singletrack.

Hope I’m not being too picky... I have a short attention span... double track and haul roads don’t do it for me.

I rode wed with a good buddy, beautiful day. We got checked by RAC security, very nice guy. RAC Gives PA Law Enforcement a free pass, they like having active cops on their land even if it's for fun and not for work... In their words an extra set of trained eyes, but my buddy is not going to be checking your pass :)

If it wasn't Mothers Day I would get out there with you.  The first mothers day after my son was born I went out riding for the day.......at the time I didn't think anything of it-    That evening when I got home ....I learned not to do that anymore!

10-1030 works for me. I'll be in a blue Silverado with a yellow DRZ in the back.

There's a good chance I will be able to make it on Saturday and I'll confirm tomorrow.

Just keep an eye on the shit weather fellas. Mrs has a dirt riding class Saturday (ultimate Mother’s Day gift from me ) and we also planned on riding Sunday but it looks like the weekend is going to be a wash. The only reason it’s raining is cause I got my suspension redone and need to test it out yet. If that didn’t happen.. the weather would be perfect!

Rode Burma today with @RandyNJ and @pek and my buddy Kevin. It rained. The whole time. Trails were not too bad, but my goggles fogged up completely. As soon as Kevin and I started loading up, the rain stopped. As we drove home, the sun came out. Beautiful now at home. Where was this sunny blue sky when I was up at FRO?

That is way too early for me, but I'm thinking Burma about 10, so I'll look for you on the trails

     Don't want you to think I just rode off into the blue this morning. I saw a trail I hadn't been on before & went to check it out, when I returned you guys had gone off in another direction.  Could not hear a bike, and at that point I felt I had enough of a ride & enough rain.  So, I called it a day but I hope to see you again soon, take care.   PK

Just like a young guy, PK sees a new trail and follows it like a bunny. Anyone else, I'd worry about you riding alone, but you've been riding these trails forever. Yeah, got tired of the rain too. See you soon
