Hey George,

I live in Fairfield County in CT. And to all of you who replied, when are we getting together and do some riding ?. My bike is et up for dirt mostly, but will do some short road sections if needed. I can also truck my bike to whatever location we can ride.

Welcome George to the DRZ madness.

George,

I live in Mohegan. Unfortunately, I do not know of any "legal" places to ride that are local. I mostly ride in supermoto trim nowadays, but am open to a group ride.

George -

As morphosis111 stated - there really aren't any legal areas to ride in the area - I grew up in Verplanck, and we used to go on the Indian Point/Georgia Pacific (now LaFarge) properties - but since 9/11 that's a :eek: .

I'll ask around - We also used to go on the trails behind George's Island park in Montrose, but I think that's all state park now. Mount Beacon was fun, but we'd get chased off even way back in the 80's :applause: .

Guys,

I lived in Westchester for 11 years and then Greenwich for 4 years before moving out to Arizona last June. It is dirt bike heaven out here and I got into the sport within of month of moving here. Where can you ride in Weschester or Fairfield counties? Someday I'm gonna truck my bike back to NY and ride around Manhattan on my DRZ. Maybe do a little off-roading in Central Park!

There are some crazy supermoto roads (twists and turns) If you go up Bear mountain. Better yet sometimes when I go upstate (catskill region) Take roads like route 28 (exit 19 on the NY Thruway) and that will lead you to some of the sickest on-road fun. Too cold now though. F- That

As for "off-road" Theres not that many good places to ride anymore, unless you know people with private land. Most state parks dont allow off-roading correct? I hate Pataki. :applause:
