  1. I live in the NOVA area, and i need to find some more people to ride supermotos with around here! i feel like around here theyre a dying breed and ive only found one or two I ride a 2011 drz400s converted to sm and i live in manassas Lets meet up and go ride!
  2. I rode (or really tried to ride) the Peter's Mill Run main trail #433 that is shown on the maps as "easier". I consider myself an average rider, but not at all a racer. Four years ago, I rode the main #433 and remember it as an easy, fairly flat trails mostly of dirt/clay with only a few more challenging rocky/steep sections. Today, it quickly became a steep and very rocky trail that was over the limits of my skills. I turned around and went back and loaded my bike on the trailer. Beaten. My riding buddies continued and said that they never saw any easy trail, and thought they were on #457 They rode more on the tasker's gap side and got completely lost even though they had the paper maps handed out with the permit and had a GPS with topo-level detail. They said it was impossible to follow the trails on the maps, and the trails that they rode, were wicked difficult. Both of the guys are very good riders who regularly ride FRO (Famous Reading Outdoors) in Pennsylvania. FRO is famous for having a lot of rocks. The handout maps clearly removed a lot of trails that are on the online (PDF maps) at https://www.fs.usda.gov/Internet/FSE_DOCUMENTS/stelprdb5443838.pdf What happened?
  3. I live in northwest Virginia (Charlottesville area) about an hour south of DC, I am not aware of any tracks in the area that are either public (or private but allow people to ride with permission). Does anyone know of any good tracks in my area? - Airborne
  4. Hi everyone. I have a 2008 400 SM and really like it--my first thumper in many years. It came to me with a Yosh muffler and a Uni air filter (which I cleaned & oiled w factory fluids). It has the stock Mikuni 36. It looks like it's been regularly maintained over the years, and I've done some stuff to it... Turkey baster mod Shorai battery + free power mod Engine oil rebreather box deleted (hoses capped/rerouted appropriately) 3 x 3 JD jetting kit It's that last part I have some questions about, and I'm hoping to connect with someone near Falls Church who knows these bikes well. I think I like the way it runs, but I'm not sure I have the jetting correct, mostly because I don't know what's 'normal' for these bikes. What should I expect in terms of power curve and delivery? Currently I'm at 160 main, 25 pilot, clip at 4th groove from top, fuel screw at 2.5 turns out. It took me a few tries to get here, too. I'm taking it out west for a month in a little while and will be riding from just above sea level up to around 7,000 ft. I'd really appreciate the chance to go over it with someone who's got more experience with the platform...I can come to you...and I'm expecting to compensate you for your time... Thanks! - Mike
  5. While my local race organization heads to the PA rocks for the rest of the season, I am thinking about doing a VCHSS hare scramble, in particular Reddy Hole. Can anyone tell me what the terrain is like? I am from South Jersey (all sand and dirt, no rocks). Videos look like nice packed dirt, but so hard to tell with Youtube.
  6. Great times in Moab. Amazing 5 days of riding all the way from Virginia.
  7. Just recently moved to Centreville Virginia (25 miles west of D.C.) and I'm looking for some places to ride, preferably some trails. If anyone knows of some places in Northern Virginia, Western Maryland, North Eastern West Virginia, South Western Pennsylvania, I'd appreciate some input. I've ridden Taskers Gap and Moto Cove but I'm looking for something new. Hatfield McCoy is a little too far, and MX tracks aren't my forte. Thanks! -DTEW
  8. So I have done plenty of research but wanted to reach out to you guys/gals to see if my plan is good before I proceed with purchasing anything. I do not consider myself in any way a expert so if I say something that comes off me sound like an idiot please don't mind. I don't plan on using the bike on major highways or dailying it but may occasionally take it to work. Hopefully by the time I'm done it will pass inspection without any problems. Headlight/Taillight with wiring harness - Enduro Honda Lighting Kit CRF230 and CRF150 06-On HL/TL/BS Baja Designs (I reached out to vendor to verify this will fit the 2019 model) Virginia does not require turn signals so not worried about that part for now I may do this mod down the road Mirrors - https://www.amazon.com/MICTUNING-Universal-Hawk-Eye-Motorcycle-Convex/dp/B06Y2RH6WG/ref=sr_1_1?keywords=dirt+bike+mirrors&qid=1569120148&s=gateway&sr=8-1#customerReviews Horn and Switch - https://www.amazon.com/SoundOriginal-Universal-Motorcycle-Electric-Waterproof/dp/B072QBNTSM/ref=pd_bxgy_263_img_2/143-6606907-8776606?_encoding=UTF8&pd_rd_i=B072QBNTSM&pd_rd_r=e0aad614-4194-4dfa-ab16-0b8e63ed59a8&pd_rd_w=suRCn&pd_rd_wg=W72jM&pf_rd_p=a2006322-0bc0-4db9-a08e-d168c18ce6f0&pf_rd_r=396RW3B1KS08XG2VW60V&psc=1&refRID=396RW3B1KS08XG2VW60V#customerReviews https://www.amazon.com/Universal-Motorcycle-Handlebar-Switch-Control/dp/B075D6WDP1/ref=pd_bxgy_263_img_2/143-6606907-8776606?_encoding=UTF8&pd_rd_i=B075D6WDP1&pd_rd_r=2042b94a-1593-487c-9b8b-bd0c41e794ab&pd_rd_w=rsB17&pd_rd_wg=JLo8N&pf_rd_p=a2006322-0bc0-4db9-a08e-d168c18ce6f0&pf_rd_r=6H3HVRPTH6TNQT35YN67&psc=1&refRID=6H3HVRPTH6TNQT35YN67 Tires - Very confused on what to do because buying a set of supermoto-like rims/tires I'm looking at about $600+; then I though about using the existing rims and putting dual sport tires on those but I really would like to keep those wheels as is. I am not sure about how sizing works when its comes to dirt bikes, I talked to a guy and he said you should put 17s on the front and rear with a lower with a bigger sprocket. I'm hoping someone may have a better idea or suggestion on what to do because I would prefer to buy a new set of rims with wheels but not sure which to buy that are affordable. Titling/Insuring - So I will need to title the bike since I didn't when I bought it and insuring will be 1 phone call. If anyone has any suggestions for me I will gladly take them I'm just trying to get this process started. Thanks
  9. I live in Maryland so for the most part I’m trailering 2-3 hours on average to ride. MD is horrible if you ride anything motorized. In the last 12 years nearly every area has been closed or governed so much its not worth to ride. The state recently purchased and closed a 2000 acre private riding location in Garrett County. The state will ruin that place in the end - after of course they do their 2-5 year study. (sorry for the rant)..... I took my kids to AOAA last week and that place kicked our butt - way too many rocks for a family ride. FYI if you ever go to AOAA make sure you take a GPS or iPhone with a mapping application. I thought their trail markings were horrible other than the “pink and black take me home” signs. For our next ride I’m looking at Peters Mill and Taskers Gap. Looking at the map and YouTube there seems to be a few decent trails that are rated “easy”. I downloaded the brochure and map for the area. Does anyone have any advice on what trail numbers we should ride (maybe a decent multi-mile loop) and what trails to avoid. I have a YZ250FX, my son rides a KLX140L and my daughter rides a TRX250x. We are not out to do anything technical - we just want to ride and not work too hard. It took us all 3 days to recover from AOAA..... Any insight on other “family” riding areas in the VA/PA region is greatly appreciated. RP
  10. Greetings TT, My brother is visiting me next week, and we want to do some riding within a couple of hours of northern Virginia that a beginner Moto rider can handle (and have fun) I tried the Cove near Winchester (In Gore Va), but it is mostly one rock garden after another on the main orange trail, as well as the upper Blue and Violet trails at Taskers Gap in Edinburgh that were also mostly rocks, with rock gardens being more difficult than the Cove where water had washed through. Although I could ride these trails on my Moto, to me the more intense first gear clutch slipping/engine stalling rock gardens were not really beginner friendly nor much fun. The rock gardens were just too frequent for my taste. With that in mind, the Peters mill trail out and back easy trail was beginner friendly, but I would like more variety for my brother. We are planning three day trips to ride. As a side note: Maybe this past year’s record rains exposed a lot more rocks on the trails, because they sure do not look like the ones that I’ve seen in pics/videos from earlier years. So - I’m looking for recommendations for trails that just have occasional rock gardens, and that would be beginner friendly not to far from Northern Va. Willing to drive to West Virginia, Maryland, and Pennsylvania to get to some decent trails. Not sure if New Jersey would be within a decent commute, but will entertain almost anywhere that is within four hours of Leesburg Va. Thanks in advance for your help, Greg
  11. Anybody ride around Chatham or Danville, VA? Looking for some better trail riding in the area. Haven't been to Outdoorsman's park in years and never been to Rivers edge. Are they worth going to?
  12. Round #4 of the National Enduro circuit will return to VA this year. The promoter was convinced to bring an enduro back to VA after the success of the first one in thirty year. Dragon's Back National Enduro will be at Oak Ridge Estate, located in Arrington, VA. A beautiful estate with incredible riding terrain. Sign-up starts soon!!! http://www.nationalenduro.com/events...o-arrington-va Love the riding at this property.

  15. Hi everyone, I just moved from Syracuse, NY to Winchester, VA this week. I have been spoiled in NY for years with 10 tracks within 1-1/2 hour drive. I haven't been able to find much down here so far. I know that there is Tomahawk near here, but I haven't found too many other tracks and I don't know anybody to ride with in this area. Anyone else from around here that rides tracks? I see a ton of trail riding, but that has never really been my thing. If anyone knows of any tracks, or wants to meet up at Tomahawk, hit me up.

  17. I ordered a Iphone XS MAX and now I am reading it may have poor reception in unpopulated areas. This may me of interest to a lot of us. I know some phones get better reception than others. What have you found? Is the iPhone XR much better than the XS MAX? Thank you. MERRY CHRISTMAS!
