I suppose its time to start thinking about getting the dirt bike out and ready to go. Hard to get in that frame of mind with this weather

I'm in if it happens this spring. But I wouldn't hold my breath. It would have to dry out a lot before then. They don't run it if its really wet because it tears up the landowners property

how much dirtbiking have you done?

I did the leaf river enduro a couple years back it was my third outing on a dirtbike. I was the absolute last person to finish, took me like 3+ hours but I finished, dead fucking tired and covered head to toe in dirt and mud, the poor little crf230 was just as dirty, I dont think there was any red still showing and i loved every second of it

Leaf River 4-7-13

I did a lot when I was younger, I just did a couple days in Georgia a few weeks back. Definitely more than 3 days experience. Might have to check it out.

I'll definately come if it's not raining cats & dogs. Will do one loop on the Honda and the second loop on the new to me 03 YZ250. Trying to decide if the yz is ready for enduro racing. May keep running the Honda since its probably a better woods bike - certainly set up that way.
