Red clay

Recommended Posts

Ok.... might be a silly question to some.. but how in the hell do you get the Georgia red clay stains out of your gear? The staining power of this stuff is amazing? Anyone have any tricks?

Its just riding gear,can you live with the stains? I know its pretty hard to get out NC clay is the same. Try to pre soak wit stain lifter. I am not all that concerned with stains on my gear so I dont know.

Hey where in GA are you? I am getting ready to move to Fairmount in March :cry:

Man, you should see my gear. You'd think I was riding a Honda with all the red in my clothes! Like Tony said...it's just gear. If you wanna look good, take up tennis or something. :cry:

Simple Green. I still find clay on my bike from last years Durhamtown trip. It's like friggen concrete once it dries.

I am sorry to say, You Don't get it out of your clothes, and if you don't wash you bike right away you don't get it off either.

Red clay is like ice when it's wet.I hit the ground often, so the riding gear is a little tatered... I just laid out my gear on the drive way and pressure cleaned it with 2600 lbs. of thrust, works pretty good, but not 100% clean, the washer did the rest. Remind me to tip her :)

There's even a T-shirt company in Georgia that uses the local clay to dye their fabric, I've seen them at music festivals before with rows of red/orange shirts for sale. Maybe try some bleach, but I doubt it'll come out.

Try spraying shout on it, let it soak for awhile, them wash it in oxy-clean. This will get most of it but you cannot keep it stain free in this region.

My solution, next time buy non-white riding gear. Or at least gear with as little white on it as possible. :)

      I am sad to say my 2006 450 EXC was stolen from my Atlanta apartment complex  (Northside Drive) near Gatech. Thursday at 6:09 PM.  Any information that is beneficial to my Case investigation will be rewarded. 
      The silver 2015 Nissan Altima is an accomplice that initially brought him through the security gate and tried to give the thief a ski mask.
      Thank you

      Just curious what riders will be at Brown & what your trail plans are as I may need a partner/partners for technical ST riding.

      Recently got into riding a dual sport.  Kinda fun being able to just hop on my KLX and explore for an hour or two but still have the option of running in a hare scramble or enduro just for self torture.
      Looking for other dual sport riders in the area to explore with.  I have a trailer so we could drag the bikes just outside of town, or just hit croom for a day now and then as well.
      I've run across a couple other dual sport guys in the area and none of them actually want to ride off road (??).  The other guys I've run into have bigger heavier bikes and are more into long highway rides and flat dirt roads .. that is not real fun on a 250.  A friend of mine mentioned somewhere south off 75 where people have been riding but I haven't been down there yet.
      I'm in St. Pete.

      Years ago 3 rail galvanized trailers were plentiful and I could easily find one when I needed one, but I'm having a hard time finding another used one this time.
      Anyone know where I might find a used 3 rail galvanized trailer for sale in the (west) central FL area?
      If so please PM me!
      Thanks
