I need to swap the studded tires and was going to wait for my sprockets to come in before doing it but if anyone is headed out this weekend post up. If so I'll run and get the tires swapped tomorrow morning then do the sprockets later.

I should be riding every weekend, but where and which day is sometimes a last minute decision

Anyone riding this weekend? I'm going to skip the Keithsburg HS. Was thinking it was a lot closer. Not driving 6hrs round trip for that noise.

Thinking FVOR. Hoping to have the bike ready to go by tonight. Saturday looks like the better day but open to Sunday as well. Anyone??

You guys all posted after the weekend

Anyway I got the new tires, handguards and gearing on the Orange bike. Still waiting for my skid plate to come in and I need to do an oil change and check valves. But I will be set this week so keep posting where you're going. I will be out somewhere most weekends although many of them will probably be rocky Glen because it's close for me. I do want to get back to FVOR too I like that place. Plus with the KTM I think I owe it to the bike to go ride the cliffs.

I'll be at FVOR today. Planning on getting there around 1pm. Temps near 60 and Wardy says park conditions are excellent. Get some!

Just a fyi for anyone thinking about heading out to FVOR, conditions were awesome yesterday. Really expected a mudfest this early in the spring but it was anything but. Bike was the cleanest it's ever been leaving that place and I rode everywhere.

Great shot. Too bad about today's weather. I just returned from a weekend in Nashville where I saw bikes everywhere and people on the golf course. It was killing me.
