I know it is a long shot, but anyone interested? The riding is excellent!! 60 to 80 miles depending on how far you wish to ride. All riding is done at night when the ground is firmly frozen. I doubt there will be many takers, but those who choose to do this will be fed well and can pull up a rug at my place, or an air mattres, or use the couch. I can squeeze 4 to 6 people. You will be amazed at the riding and it only takes about an hour to stud up your ride.

Hey Mike - I am interested, I have not done any riding in the snow yet, but plan on getting some studs this winter, I have a couple of friends that love riding in the snow, they say it's a blast.

I wanted to ride with you this summer, but I have been so busy on weekends, that I have only been riding locally - we found a really good spot that's only 10 minutes away from my house, and we have been busy exploring it.

Keep me informed, as I usually frequent the 250 side, not this one.

Sounds good. I will work on dated in the next few months. Let me know when you have a good 80 or so mile trail ride and I may come down for a ride.

That sounds like a plan. You'll have to drive though because Im not old enough to drive out of the state. Well that may be a bad idea we'll end up doing 35 the whole way up there. JK

Anyway, I definately want to go any company is always good. Maybe we can talk Shawn into going too.
Hey if you get out of work for some reason Monday come on up to Jack Frost.

I don't yet have a bike, but hope to by then. I think MOAB is about 6 hours from here. If i have a trailer as well, I'd be stoked to go. What level of rider should I be though. I've got about 1 year of experience on a CR250.

This ride is in New Hampshire.


We'll take the Seqouia, you'll have to get your parents to sign a release form in case/when you get hurt. If they want me to come up and meet them before we go let me know :)

Going to try and get to RC or Tower, Hit-Man called and said he was camping at TC.

I got your 35.

Hey Mike,
