I was thinking the same thing, about a possible probe ride at Elkins this weekend. :eek:

I'll try to let you know for sure Thursday at the Foresthill meeting. :applause:

:applause: I don't know if I can make the ride,but I'm gonna try to to get out in my area,maybe to the cabin and see how its looking.There was a fair amount of snow just east of town yesterday but things are melting fast.Hard to tell anyway,the cabin is 860 feet higher in elevation than my house but more than once I've seen the snow still hanging around nearby more than it was out at Elkins.I may get out there tomorrow,whether snowshoe,mountain bike,or motorcycle I don't know,but I'll let you know once I've checked it out.I will probably ride somewhere around here Sunday,but more likely in the afternoon.

She doesn't know how to ride a dirt bike. Thats why I'm setting up the HP2 for 2 up riding. With the big fork springs in and adding 30-40 additional psi in the rear shock bike is set up well. Drop the forks down 1" to level out the handling with GF aboard. BMW makes a rear footpeg kit and should be in this week. I want us to do some dual sport rides together.

Have fun, guys. I was at GT last Sunday doing trail assessment on 1; some water, some dust. Be careful. Lots of people going to be jammed into the westside this weekend.

This will be the first time out with the 450 with the Rekluse installed (with the exception of PC for an hour or so last weekend). I would like to see how well it works in the woods and the Snow.

Just put the transmission into 3rd gear, remove the shift lever and leave it at home.
