Taking the 600 to Brown Mt, NC, 58 degrees sat.

Recommended Posts

First time with the 600 hope I can handle the weight on the hills up and down , always road my 2 stroke there , will be my decision maker in fixing the 650-L or converting the 600 over to dual sport .

I was there every day this week on my 650 L. Got a lot of rain on Tuesday so there are lots of ruts and puddles, but the traction is great. It will be really crowded today though. Have fun!

Where is Brushy Mtn? We ride at Harlan and I-81 for trails. Waiting to ride Buffalo Mtn as well. MY XR 600R is big for trails but I am getting used to it.

Brushy is near Taylorsville. It's fun too, but Brown is only 15 minutes from my house. Also its only $35 a year. I think Brushy is $20 a day unless you're a member.

Been working 6-7 days a week since Jan , First weekend off . Just now got back on pc, Man I have missed a lot of reading, any way I know most of the trails on my 2-stroker , But this heavy 600 is going to take so time to get use to , Ride went real good ------- till the old girl spit me off , When I took it slow and easy no problem when I pick up my pace more , then thats when she buck going up one of the steep hills , Fell backwards , ------those rocks hurt took 8 weeks to heal those crack ribs, we steal rode for the rest of the day , I think I had to much bike for that ride or I need to do some suspenion work , a auto-clutch would have been nice. love it on my 2-stroke up there , I thought I would hare scramble the 600 , a bit heavy , and after that spill got me alittle scared , only rode the 600 , 5 times so far , Thanks for reading,

Yep, some of those trails are a handful on a big, heavy bike. I was there yesterday and last weekend and it is DRY up there - which makes it really slippery. I cracked some ribs and dislocated my shoulder last summer when it was dry, so I took it pretty easy yesterday. Still a great place to ride, though.
