Who is up for a ride like this

http://www.youtube.com/watch?feature...&v=Y6RpL9CpWu4


I have been scoping places out and I have found some good areas to ride. Who would be up for a sumo group ride riding places like this. Oviously there are always chances of getting a verbal warning or ticket by the popo but I have never ran into that yet and we have done some off road stuff already on group rides.

The thing is if we go for a ride like this all have to be committed as most likely the route we take we will not be turning around to come back the way we came and coem get you. Also we will leave no one behind as we ride as a group and have fun as a group just like in this vid.

Depending on your level of crazy, I'd be in. Never been off road on any bike though, so that's my only reservation.

I'm all in on this. I got some spots but they do come with risk. I usually go at night but some spots will be "ok" in the day. If anything, maybe I could show steve these spots and let him decide whats good for a group. I'll pretty much try anything but I dont want to put people in a situation theyre not comfortable with.

You can do better than that vid, Steve. I expect to see you riding through buildings, shopping malls, Union Station, and up on the El tracks.

Never a bad time to climb... unless the weather is really horrible, and then you climb inside!

If a cop could actually manage to follow you guys through something like that and catch you, 1) you deserve to get caught for allowing it and being too slow and 2) The cop deserves to catch you for being one bad mofo.

Looks more like a dual sport ride to me (on the vid). I have faith that you guys can do better.

I would be in on a ride like that.
But where you finding areas like that around here? We don't have hills here, and we have many more LEO's.

Doesn't mean I don't want to try tho.
