Just another Who lives close to me thread

Elkton VA. At intersection of 33 and 340. Also very close to the Skyline drive. About 2 miles away. So who lives close and know where or wants to ride? I have a DRZ400S.


Salem, VA here. Maybe meet halfway?

I think there is a trail in Edinburg (about half way) that is pretty nice. What do you ride?

I'm afraid you're looking halfway in the wrong direction. If I understand correctly, Edinburg is north of both of us. Salem is south on 81, basically a suburb of Roanoke. I did a ride with some TT'ers out west of Harrisonburg in the GW forest that was pretty cool- we could try that out. I ride a DRZ400-S with bike protection, otherwise stock.

You are right. :naughty: :naughty: I am not sure what I was thinking that day. The is a lot of riding from Harrisonburg west to WVA. I haven't done much up there because I am from Waynesboro (81N to 340N) but I have a set of forestry maps that I need to sit down with and make some routes to explore. I shoot you a PM when I have something.

There is some great riding all around you. Just fire it up and head west. You can easily go as far Elkins WV with only a few short sections of pavement. I'm west of you, near Monterey, and ride over towards Harrisonburg a few times a year. Dig out those maps and start exploring. :naughty:

      Howdy! I'm looking for early season riding within driving distance. Ontario is still 4-6 weeks from riding and I'm itching....
      Advanced single trail rider, open to medium+ difficulty 4x4 / ATV trails, doesn't have to be single trail only.
      I'm an hour from the border, Ottawa, and good to drive 7-8 hours max to get a day or 2 of riding done...as far as Cleveland, Pittsburgh, Philadelphia, up the coast to Maine
      I've found the following locations so far that might fit the bill:
      Any on this list you would remove?
      Did I miss any?
      Any insight would be greatly appreciated!

      Has anyone around New Jersey heard of Lepis Land? I found people talking on other forums about it and how riding there is by donation only. Does anyone have anymore information about it or a phone number to contact them?

      10/17/08 UPDATE! I posted more photos on page 2. Not all pictures are on page 1. I will constantly be adding more photos as I go along.
      Many of you have heard of my starting/idle problems with the 610. Carburetion has been ruled-out time and time again. I sensed something else was going on. The engine has never wanted to idle down, sounded like there was a load on it even in neutral. Since I had metal filings in my oil when I first got it, I have now decided to overhaul it and make everything ship-shape. It turns out that I was correct- there is some valve damage that I will talk about later.
      I don't like to take apart dirty engines and get the dirt inside 'em

      A little gross.

      My cleaning station:

      A little better now

      Clutch removal:

      bottom of pressure plate

      everything looked decent as far as wear

      after removing plates

      basket after removing hub

      Area after removing basket.

      Removing the starter gear with snap ring pliers

      More to come. I'm uploading pictures of the case splitting, etc...
      I'll try to ease off on the photo-over-obsession. The next batch of info/photos will be a little more interesting.
      Comments and suggestions are appreciated. I'm already ordering parts from George so before I know it, I'll be just waiting on new parts (after a little more cleaning.
