Have you guys checked out the trail behind Cleary Stone in Richmond? GMP set up a substation which killed the track but people including me ride there weekly. Some trails out back are VAST but alot are not. :applause:

How can there be so few trails in VT? That state is pristine. Is the enforcement that tough up there? I know there's a lot of tree huggers up there, but there has to be at least a couple good trail systems you can access.

My father is from the far northern tier but it's been sometime since I've been there, and the local cop in town is a real ass. I guess they only like sledding.

Richmond is and always has been cool to ride. Cleary sold the land to Marcelino and he has no problem with ppl riding on the outskirts of the former sand track. In addition GMP has clearcut some decent stuff closer to the highway (mostly enduro stuff.) Dont be fooled Richmond is on and I still meet ppl who continue to say its closed. Fine with me keeps the place less busy.

Kawinj - I moved from CT and have been totally disappointed with the riding. I used to have your sentiment as you'de think VT is a riding wonderland......its not. People have some real privacy issues with their land and only open their trails or land up to slednecks. VT has a huge trail network all of which is off limits to dirtbikers. :applause:

"Slednecks" LOVE IT!!!!! I too am a former "Flatlanda" RI originally. Yes, you would think VT has lots of place to ride but there are these great signs "POSTED" COME ON! Are people actually gonna see ALL 100 acres that they buy up? Give a dirt lover some space to ride - 2 wheel dirt lover at that! Sorry, venting.

So, Richmond is still cool... hummmmmm So when we all meeting there?

So where is Cleary / Marcelino, past the honey spot? I lived in Jonesville / Bolton for about 6 years and never heard of it :applause: . Of course I didn't own a bike then though. I still make it up there from time to time. There is a set of power lines near my place (off the Bolton notch road), but they aren't that long, and I am always interested in finding new places.

The richmond place is the second dirt driveway on the right after you turn on to governer chittenden rd in richmond (at the corner of 117 and 2). Recently my local landfill bought some previously posted land and miraculuosly unposted it!! The dump ppl confiremed that it was intentionally unposted so I rip there in the meantime (while it remains unposted) :applause:

I have a place in at killington, VT. I live in jersey, but do most of my trail riding in PA.

However, if anyone from the rutland area wants to meet up for some trail rides some time, I'd love to head up for a weekend.

PM me, maybe we can set something up this summer.

Thinking about no places to ride . Why don't they just let us ride all the land fill areas. I guess not we would ruin the cap on the dump??

Happy New Year

Ok so I lost my password and haven't kept up with this forum.

You guys should check out www.nestreetriders.com Good group there and they have a "Dirty Riders" forum with a good bunch there as well.

I changed my profile so I will get notified if someone responds to my posts so I can keep up to date here.

I still have my KLX300R and I REALLY want to dirt ride more next year. I have not been in the dirt since I was about 16 (36 now and starting up again)

I have an enclosed trailer and I am going to start road racing next year at NHIS so if anyone needs help with that let me know. :lol:

Is it April Yet?

im here. been riding my local trails a little. (well, snowmobile trails i shouldn't be on that either lead to fenced corn feilds or right into a lake that isn't frozen anymore...)

I know a guy through nestreetriders that has access to 40,000 acres of trails in burlington vt.

I usually cross the border and ride in quebec. some decent trails just across the line

      I'm currently active military and have 4 years to decide on what to do when I get out. I have post 9/11 gi bill so I can go to college or technical school for free,  and I love the northeast and saw there's a good amount of mx tracks up there, good roads for motorcycles,  and excellent mountain biking. 
      I'm here for any input on good jobs up there that some of you have, I'm currently looking at real estate but they often work weekends.  So if you have a job that you don't hate going to everyday please let me know what you do and if you want to say the good and bad parts of it.
       
      thanks in advance

      So I'm starting to get a bit sick of riding the same old stretches of quad/sxs trails along the mass/NY border, and am looking to stretch my dualsport's legs a bit more in New England. 
      I know there's plenty of legal riding in the Western Mass state forests as well as class four roads in VT, I'm hoping there are some well traveled riders who can give me some recommendations for technical bike oriented trails in the area, or point me to riding groups who seek out such things.

      MCI is pleased to announce we have been working our butts off to create what we feel is the best Stump Jumper in quite some time! We first took the opportunity to (again) hold a Fall Sand Run. What that means to you is a more pleasant enduro experience. Pretty colors, no bugs, and virtually zero over-heating of the bikes/you. The fall is the best time of the year to ride, so come ‘on out and pin that thing!

      First on the agenda, we took a long hard look at NOT sending you down 539 in the morning so you know what that means… you’re going to get something a little warmer, a little “slower” to start the day. Trust us, we engineered things so you can start you day by testing your time keeping skills. No ridiculous “Tricks” that waste your whole day, just a fun way to show all you know how to get the 00/00!

      After the “warmer” morning you are going to be treated to an amazing route that crisscrosses the wonderful forest known as Bass River. The majority of your day will be filled with fun, flowing, smooth, clean pathways that have been painstakingly maintained by the elite MCI strike force. All you old MX guys, does the words “MX special tests” mean anything to you??? Ah yes, I can hear the rev-limiters popping now… If you come out of Bass River at the end of the day without a smile welded on your face, I’d recommend selling you dirt bike and taking up knitting.
