  1. It was a great time. Unfortunately I didn't get to meet up with you fellas there, but the track was awesome and I got a few shots of the race. I'll post them up a little later. For my first hare scramble, I thought it was a great race to get my feet wet and the track wasn't that technical. I only completed six laps, but many of the fellas in the A class completed more than 11. Shows you how damn slow I am.
  2. I'll be there. DRZ400E with Baja DS kit. Blue/white Chevy Blazer S-10 with red open bed trailer, PA plates.
  3. Excellent! Hope I see you guys there.
  4. I'll be heading to this on Sunday. Riding a DRZ-E w/ DS kit, Blue 88 Chevy Blazer S-10, red trailer. I've never ran a hare scramble before and was hoping to be able to hook up with a couple of ya'll at the race. 01 DRZ-400E with all the mods for rock crawling
  5. Good thing. Yesterday went up near there and the weather was decent, but there was still a fair amount of slush on the ground. The going wasn't treacherous, but it made it slick in spots, but still alot of fun. And the weather today is just crap.
  6. I'd might be up for a trip out there. What time are you thinking about getting out there? Right now all the snow is mostly gone and the snow fall we're receiving tonight is only a coating at best. Should be pretty decent conditions on the trail. I haven't ridden on the trails in Paragon, but I ride in a close locale to there. Haven't been up there in a couple of weeks but I'll be heading up there tomorrow so I can give you a better idea of what the trail conditions are like. DRZ-400E
  7. More info please. I can't go this weekend, but do they conduct the scrables throughout the winter?
  8. I've got the "E," am 5'10", 185 lbs, and have had absolutely no problems with the bike! Weight or no, the hill climbs are the only problems I have, but it's not the bike. And I hear about the weight and dropping the bike and picking it back up, but I also ride a Triumph Tiger and a couple of friends have KTM 950 Adventures, so in comparison to what I'm used to, the DRZ is featherweight. You don't throw a disk getting it off the ground. I can pick it up with the wheels facing up hill, get back on it, hit the starter button (that's where that little magic button is truly magic) and continue on my uphill excursion. Ofcourse dropping it a few more times is always in order. I've lowered the gearing with a larger Sunstar rear sprocket, so it's great for the rockclimbing around here, but other than that, it's stock with all the "approved" armor, and it's absolutely a tank and a hoot to ride.
  9. I'll be in Rhode Island this coming weekend for Thanksgiving. I'll have the bike so I was wondering if anyone will be getting out for a short bit on Friday or Saturday. Doesn't really matter where in the state, you can make it from one end to the other in about half an hour.
  10. Bruce, a friend and I are heading up to Rausch Creek on Sunday if you want to get some trail riding in there instead.
  11. Tuscarora from Reading is only about 45 minutes; Paragon is about an hour; Rausch is about an hour; and Shamokin's about an hour and a half. I don't know of anything East of Reading, but I don't think there's too much the closer you get to Philly. Widder electrics are the best when it get really cold, but besides that, Olympia Gortex gauntlets are pretty good to about freezing, then I use a battery-powered heated glove liner for when I'm riding below freezing.
  12. I've never been to Paragon (too far away) or Tower city because from what I've heard, their not much different than where I go riding, and they charge you (Tower City is $35.00/day).
  13. There is actually quite a bit of riding in your area if you know where to look. I've got a DRZ 400E that I'll be taking out this weekend to ride in your "area," though that may be a relative term. I know areas by Shamokin and out by Tamagua. If you want to get out, post up or PM me.
  14. If you want a good place that's free, the coal stippens by Shamokin ain't bad, and it's larger than Paragon.
  15. It's a little off the beaten path. It's just off of 225.
