    Most people in Newfoundland talk with much more of an accent than he writes with. It's often hard to understand until you get used to it. Nice pictures - let us know when the video comes out.

    East Coast hcam enduro video

    Great Video ! I've ridden Michaux and it is much harder than it appears in the video. Step hills and lots and lots of rocks. Good job.
  3. I'm renting a house on the beach north of Corola Light in the Outter Banks next week and thought about taking my DRZ. I'm not sure if it's allowed on the beach (4 wheel drive only) or not but I think because it is street legal I should be O.K. Anyone else ridden there? How hard is it to ride in the sand? Thanks

    Anyone Ridden Their DRZ in the OBX ???

    I have a Tera Flex so I should be O.K. - I'll just let some of the air out. I know for sure you can take 4-wheel drive vehicles on the beach in that area because there are no roads to get you to the houses along the beach. I don't plan on ripping around in the dunes, I just want to be able to dual sport down the beach where the 4x4's can go - and explore the area. I guess I'll find out if it's legal to ride a licensed motorcycle on the beach where the signs say 4-wheel drive only.

    who lives in Maryland?¿?

    Hey Stinson, This area is great for a dual sport. Twisty back roads everywhere and very few cars. There is also a ton of forest service roads. I don't know of much single track right around here because if it's private land I don't go on it. Have you taken your KTM to Greenridge, it's much better on a DS because you can explore the whole forest and not just the ORV loop.

    I broke my leg on my DRZ...

    Congradulations Chris ... I'm glad your story had a happy ending. We'll have to go riding sometime - and don't worry - I live for the dirt !!!

    who lives in Maryland?¿?

    I live in Hancock on the western edge of Washibgton County. I'm supprised to see so many of you from Carroll County - I used to live between New Market & Frederick and your right there aren't many places around there to ride anymore.

    breezewood mx

    I went out yesterday (Wed) and had a great time, didn't see anyone from TT. They had bought some machinery to till up the track but it broke so they only had sections of it groomed. I like the way Dan the owner at Breezewood is always improving it. He had already changed some of the corners and jumps since I was there on Saturday - making it even better.

    dual sport riders in s.central PA

    Thanks for the advice - I'm really looking forward to this ride. The instruction packet they sent out said to bring a "bee sting kit" so I guess it hasn't changed much since you rode there. I'll report back and let eveyone know how it went.

    dual sport riders in s.central PA

    I'd like to check it out sometime. I'm riding in the Michaux Dual Sport this weekend but when I get some free time in a few weeks I'll pm you about riding there.

    Hey milk - are you still riding at that new place you found near your house?

    I've been everywhere... MAN!

    Why so negitive ??? All fryboy did was post the link so the rest of us could also enjoy it. He didn't 'claim' anything or even say anything.
  17. Anyone else going to Breezewood Proving Grounds this weekend in PA ? It's the Grand Opening Weekend and they have all kinds of events going on, live radio broadcast from the track, recorded lap times, picture taking of you riding, a free pig roast etc. It should be a great weekend. I'll be there Friday & Saturday, if any of you can make it come up and say "Hi" I'll be camping with my wife and daughter > Maroon F150, pop-up camper, YZ450F #522 Here is their website http://www.breezewoodprovinggrounds.com/

    OLN Sucks more than ESPN?

    You guys should be thanking OLN !!! If it wasn't for them deciding to pick up motocross coverage after it was dropped by ESPN you wouldn't have any to watch at all. The reason the schedual is messed up is because they were already comitted to other things, but give them some time - once they start devoting the propper amount of attention to it I think we'll all be happy.

    going to greenridge state park

    It all depends, 2 weekends ago there were several quads but only a few other bikes. But since it's an 18 mile 'one way' loop - you really only see other riders at the trail heads. Lukejt, I've ridden both Greenridge and Bald Eagle - If it's just as easy to go to Bald Eagle I would go there. It's an awesome place with lots of variety - single track, technical, it's all there.

    Best Bike Stand for the DRZ/E

    I've used an upside down bucket but they tend to get weak and start to collapse on one side, especially if you sit on the bike while on the bucket. I recently (after reading a TT thread) bought a Rubbermaid Step-Stool from Lowes for $10. I works great !!! It's light and is rated to hold up to 800 Lbs - so sitting on the bike while it's on the stand isn't a problem.

    Breezewood PA Track Is Open

    Yea, I thought it would be a great place to have races too, but I think they want to make it a great practice facility. Maybe that's something they'll do in the future. I rode there again yesterday afternoon, only a few other bikes - had a great time !!! I'm looking forward to they're opening weekend celebration on Aug. 5-7th .

    Breezewood PA Track Is Open

    I went to Breezewood Proving Grounds last weekend and had a great time. They actually have three tracks, a kids track, a supercross style track with lots of jumps, and an intermediate track that is a little more wide open with less jumps. The tracks were in great shape, you can tell that they are putting a lot of time and money into creating a first class motorcross facility. Here is their website http://www.breezewoodprovinggrounds.com/ Corey

    Nice Scenery today

    We had on that lived in the fields behind our house for 3 or 4 years - then I saw it one time limping and I never saw it again. It wasn't pure white, but it was white with a light brown tinge to it - very pretty.

    Breezewood PA Track Is Open

    I went back again yesterday. What a great place !!! Not crowed (only 2 other bikes) & the people who run it are awesome. They're having a Grand Opening Celebration Aug 5th, 6th & 7th with free camping, free food and lots of games and riding events. Sounds like it will be fun for the whole family. They have already changed the track some since I was there two weeks ago - so it's even better. Since they're open 6-days a week I figured I'd be able to go up there a lot - so I went ahead and bought a 1 year membership.
