I too am in Calgary. I have a '99 WR that I have converted for dual purpose use. I am glad to see the weather has cooled off and look forward to doing some fall riding. I feel a trip to Waiporous coming on soon!

So my addr is email@example.com
I'm in the west central (lakeview) part of cow town. ...and damn, yeah I have the damned buyers remorse... mostly because I've been kinda busy this summer and not riding enough ... street or dirt.
Next week I'm going to haul it to N.Saskatchewan (54N lat 104W long)and tear around on the sandy fire & pulp haul roads. I have a place to hang out while up there and can ride it to and from the door of the cabin The area is actually canadian-shield terrain with rugged bedrock and many many pine trees and no population. ..and ... there's literally thousands of backcountry roads running through the countryside. It might change my outlook on the blue beast.
sooo... thanks for the interest. I'll give you a shout when I get back. I should have some video of the riding.

McLean, Balckfoot, Wiaprous.... those are the spots to go. I've been to Blackfoot & McLean Creek, most other plces are regulated away from us. I've been tempted to haul the scoot to B.C. where the OHV regulations are much more relaxed. But Trent mught have an opinion on THAT.
I am truely a novice at the dirt scene and because of that, I have a bit of trepidation towards riding alone. I have 25 years of street racing/riding under the belt but, as you now, the dirt is a completely different animal.
Next week will be a deciding week for me. I am going home to 'scatchwan and the top half of the province is bush-country.. with no regulations! You don't even have to license/register your OHV bike in that province. .. just don't ride it on the roads...
I'll see if it still agrees with me after next week.. or whether I will sell the blue beast and put the cash (and some more) towards something like an RC51 or R1100S or a TL1000s or a used Monster.. I figure if you're going to own it, you might as well be riding it.
