    Appalachian backroads - free route maps

    I have hit all but roadrunner and skull cracker. Most all of these have great ADV connector routes that are great and can be FUN. Max's, Do you have 4 to 6 day's to ride the KAT in 2016?

    Shoop Buys a Thumper

    I sold my 2004 back in 2011. Great purchase Chris. For ADV and Desert work it could use a 6th gear but Yamaha would loose sales of the extremely popular wr250. I changed gearing and was able to run with the Honda 650 on the fast Desert roads out west. It can be a beast in the Ohio single track woods for old farts. There is a gray wire mod you may want to do and also the standard carb stuff. For great information check out: https://thumpertalk.com/forums/forum/12-wr400f426f450f/ YES to the WR450's 04WR450 by

    Sunday 25th. Nov ADV Ride

    Hocking Hills: Low of 42 tonight High of 57 on Sunday. Start at 10am with some low speed two track and gravel with speed at or below 45 with a lot of body movement on the bike. Perfect conditions unless you fall in one of the flooded road sections and get wet. 😁 It's all good

    Returned from a 6 day ride with the wife to western KY/TN loop of back road areas. Great riding, cool morning starts, not much fall colors. Got home recovered bikes and gear. Slapped a new tire on the V-Strom and am ready to go again. KY1 by KY4 by KY5 by KY7 by

    Where to ride and with who

    I moved here from Mesa & Scottsdale and would not move back. You have great riding all over southern Ohio with KY. & Wv just a tank of gas away. Wayne NF (Monday Creek Trail) is close and the main corridor is big bike friendly when dry. New Straitsville trail head is a good start point plus you can get a pass at the camp ground. Also Sycamore trail head will get you into the more advance trails faster. The ORV season ends 15 DEC. Also we have a lot of great public road ADV routes around the area. ADV Rider as was mentioned has more info for your needs. Should be some trail riding video's of the area on my tube. also would be happy to get you some GPX routes also. Come ride with us sometime. https://www.youtube.com/channel/UCsBAaDfZkbxULiV3c5MohnA/playlists?view_as=subscriber https://www.fs.usda.gov/main/wayne/passes-permits/recreation https://www.fs.usda.gov/Internet/FSE_DOCUMENTS/fseprd546375.pdf

    I think that's why Suzuki was giving them away with the new purchase of the 2014 V-Strom. The flat rack that replaces the rear seat is a $$$Hepco-Becker$$$ pice that works great with soft tail bag or dry bag.

    What did you do to your bike today?

    I agree Tim. Sometimes our needs must be met. I got this box free when I purchased my 2014 V-Strom. I have only use it for trips to the shooting range but it's a nice item to have on hand.
