Found two more creek crossings today, just NE of Lexington.
One concrete, one rock:

A little more Lamar and Fayette County.

No sign of the post office except for the sign.

Been through here a few times. Never noticed this old log cabin till the county cut back the right of way.

We did a little night riding at the shire...

Got to ride on some trails in Trussville today with Larry, Danimal and Graham. After I had already unloaded and geared up, I discovered that I managed to leave my keys at home!  :-[ They went and rode for an hour until I could make it back.

I got a ton of video, as usual. And as usual none of it looks exciting. The tight single track and rocky hills make me miss having a lightweight trail bike.   :-\

Anywho, some highlights...

On this slick hill, Larry went and almost went off the trail, and my back tire just spun on the slick rock under the leaves. Then Dan came back down to check on me and his front end washed out...



Then we went here, until we got run off by officer not-so-friendly...



After that Larry split off and we rode back all the trails back over toward Trussville. As usual, you can't see how steep the trail is (up or down) or all of the boulders/babyheads and root/rock ledges...



Then Dan offered a celebratory slow wheelie...



About 25 miles off road on single track and double track for me, slightly more for them. All in all, a good day to ride.  8)

Thanks for putting this together James.  I had a good time even though I only had about 3 hours to ride.   You are right on that one hill.   It is at least a 1/4 mile long and fairly steep AND it is covered in long rock sheets that are off camber.   In the spring and summer the rock is covered with moss and if wet it is near impossible.  In the fall and winter you can get traction on the leaves and straw but if you ever lose your momentum it is tough.

Because it is off camber and slick it was like I was drifting with the front pointed where I wanted to go and the rear at about a 15 degree angle to the right.   I caught traction in a little spot between the rock slabs and the front came up and I wheelied straight into the trees.    I guess that is where I lost the headlight shroud when the front wheel was up in the trees?   

Anyway, that caused you and Graham both to stop and restarting on that section is tough.   Sorry about that.  It was a good day to ride and I am glad I got the chance to ride for a few hours.

Today I rode all over the shire with Fencejumper, BBlass, and Graham. I managed about 50 miles of trails. This pretty much sums up our day...

Got out in Fayette/Lamar counties again.

Found some nice views. There was a four wheeler trail going down a fire lane right behind the bike.  Might check that out after hunting season.

(http://i1294.photobucket.com/albums/b617/jwwr/IMG_2386_zpsdjblayur.jpg)

Speaking of hunting. With emphasis!

(http://i1294.photobucket.com/albums/b617/jwwr/IMG_2385_zpsztrfqrci.jpg)

All the good curves are on dirt roads around here. I'm learning to embrace the KTM's ability to step the rear out with only a little throttle. My WRR doesn't do that!

(http://i1294.photobucket.com/albums/b617/jwwr/IMG_2381_zpstzvhinft.jpg)

I'll take a quart an a half of the good stuff!

(http://i1294.photobucket.com/albums/b617/jwwr/IMG_2391_zpshotczgxk.jpg)

Not many of these left! Get em while you can!

That was all from yesterday (Tues, Dec 29th). Muss and I rode over 14 hours and 233 miles. About 160-170 of those miles were off road. The weather was PERFECT! Sunny with a high of 68 and a low of 58.

Today, we weren't so lucky...it rained. Sometimes a little. Sometimes a lot. We still had fun though...





Title: Re: Show us where you went dual sport riding today
Post by: jrou111 on December 31, 2015, 12:03:11 PM
I was wrong. Turned out that we rode a total of 287 miles on Tuesday. Of that, 168 miles were off road and 119 miles were paved. Total elapsed time was 15:07, moving time was 11:13, and we spent 3:54 stopped. The average moving speed was 26mph, and our elevations ranged from 776ft all the way up to 5357ft.

Muss conquering the mud hole...



Trail 82 was pretty muddy, so I just made a quick run down part of it...




Wednesday was not quite as fun with the rain, but thankfully the worst of it was on the way back from Turtletown to Ellijay. I wound up getting a flat in the rear just 1 mi away from the truck, so we just brought the truck back, loaded up in the rain and headed back to AL.

All in all, a good 2 days to ride  8)

I went through Pinson yesterday on the old rr track bed. The same exact sections are still open and being used from 20 years ago. I used to ride my xr200 down the tracks back in the mid 90's and much to my amazement it looks exactly the same. It brought back some good memories.

Beaver Creek Road in Marion County. I like this road. It's different every time I ride it. Last time I barely checked up crossing this. All the rain lately has made this more interesting! Thanks to who ever marked the right side, you don't want to cross there!

The left side had a nice gravel bottom.

(http://i1294.photobucket.com/albums/b617/jwwr/P1000033_zpsylcrl6yb.jpg)

In Lamar County now. This road just makes a loop. I ride it for this one curve.

(http://i1294.photobucket.com/albums/b617/jwwr/P1000036_zpspaiygam2.jpg)

Saw lots of places where the county had to replace culverts, that were washed out. This was deeper than it looks.

(http://i1294.photobucket.com/albums/b617/jwwr/P1000035_zpszd9dxzlp.jpg)

Wayside road in Fayette County. The loggers have created a nice view, but they have already replanted pines so it won't last long.

After being stuck inside for most of what was one of the most beautiful days of the year so far,  I managed to get out and ride a loop through the Wheeler Wildlife Refuge just as the sun was going down.  The gates are now re-opened so no need to back track. :)

So in a matter of 3 weeks I got a job in North Atlanta and have just finished moving my family into a house in Cumming, GA near Lake Lanier. Today after Easter Services I got a couple hours of riding time in before the rain came through. There was a ton of fog though. I'm only 40 minutes from Dahlonega and 60 minutes from Wolf Pen Gap now. If y'all come up this way, let me know and we'll ride!

Only got one pic while out riding today, and of course it's my bad form...

Ken and I rode some dirt roads, many creek crossings and low bridges, and a short trail to a cool waterfall.  Apparently we rode a little bit of the TAT also, which was a surprise to both of us.  It was a great day.

I managed to get some riding up in the mountains yesterday on the VStrom.

Somewhere in South Carolina

(http://uploads.tapatalk-cdn.com/20160711/86125c0178a6832b9b7fd05858c3bc94.jpg)

Looking glass rock from a FS road

(http://uploads.tapatalk-cdn.com/20160711/739bf6743e13f5677b97f36e3d6022c2.jpg)

In the higher elevations it was in the mid to upper 60's. Just what the doctor ordered.

(http://uploads.tapatalk-cdn.com/20160711/dadc17528df589de26f22b8e6212337a.jpg)

After riding on the BRP, I headed into Maggie Valley. I grabbed some snacks and water and rode a secret backroad I discovered a few years back to Heintooga. When I got to the start of the 28 mile gravel loop there was a road closed sign.

(http://uploads.tapatalk-cdn.com/20160711/2f7efc03c2f8a3f7975cc06816c7cba2.jpg)

I decided to check and see if I could still make it. I figured it'd be either a landslide or a tree fallen or something. It was getting late too so I figured if I had to I could backtrack and camp at Balsam Campground.

Turns out it was fallen trees. There were about 6-7 fallen but some were cut up or not completely blocking the road.

The first tree

(http://uploads.tapatalk-cdn.com/20160711/4a979fceb3a4480755ab465dac4d47b6.jpg)

It was passable but I snapped a few branches to make it wider. As I was doing so I heard buzzing and looked to see a big yellow jackets nest that was on one of them limbs. I hopped back on the bike and rode on through.

The next tree I didn't get a shot of. It was about an 8-10" log laying flat on the ground. I figured I could hop it...well guess again! My 86 Weld skid plate hit it and just dug into the side of the tree. With not enough ground clearance left I decided to just pick it up and slide it to the side. Doing so of course knocked my bike over!

The next tree I stopped at and figured out a way around. I took one of the broken limbs and used it as a lever to move the fallen tree out of the way.

Success!

(http://uploads.tapatalk-cdn.com/20160711/81a575f4451a9892e5da46244a3748f3.jpg)

Another 6-7 miles and I was at the bottom. Of course the gate was closed, but thankfully I found a way around.

(http://uploads.tapatalk-cdn.com/20160711/7d118b96dea2f5fcec7c85ee14248b12.jpg)

(http://uploads.tapatalk-cdn.com/20160711/aee538dc21febda4a308be16d9f06bc3.jpg)

After that I headed on Bunches Creek Road back up to the BRP. It's a pretty quick elevation change.

Even got to catch the sun set

(http://uploads.tapatalk-cdn.com/20160711/7c6d09afacaa6328d5f35968737e04f1.jpg)

(http://uploads.tapatalk-cdn.com/20160711/be8282ecca6afae8f0ae42e70760b125.jpg)

I rode from there across the BRP down Dobson Ridge Rd and on into Cherokee. I had prepared to camp but figured it was only 2.5hrs home, so I headed south in the cool of the night.

I wound up riding 455 miles, just under 100 of that was dirt/gravel. All in all, a good day to ride.

I needed another weekend of riding up in higher altitudes where it's much cooler. Awesome riding. Awesome time with advrider41.

Cataloochee. Max Patch. Hurricane Creek. Cherokee.

After he left I headed south towards home but stopped by and rode for a couple hours near Helen Ga on Tray mountain rd and the Chatahoochie WMA.

Rode just under 100 miles of dirt on Saturday and about 110 miles on Sunday.  All in all, a good weekend to ride.

Just spent a coupe of hours tooling around on the CRP (Chunky Red Pig...smaller than the Big Red Pig). I may have just convinced myself to keep this thing...

(http://www.pbase.com/image/163988921.jpg)


P.O. has it geared ridiculously low...first is useless, and it's screaming at 55 mph. Third and fourth on the trail will cover anything. Might try +1/-2 on the sprockets. It's been about 10 years since I've ridden a stock 400, but with the extra cc's this thing will tractor up just about anything and keeps on pulling up top.

But, like me, it's not really a single track killer...we're both a little old and a little heavy in the middle. For everything else, this thing's a blast!

My son and I did some dual sport riding in the DeSoto National Forest, Chickasawhay District (in Mississippi) on Sunday.  I call it "trails", but it was forest roads that are approved for motor vehicle use according to the published MVUMs that are put out by the USDA.

Many of the roads dead end, and get brushy and narrow before they end.  Nonetheless, they are enjoyable to ride on.  With the temps being as high as they have been, we were happy to stick to the more open gravel roads where we could maintain good airflow over ourselves, and the bikes.

We did some exploring at Tiger Creek.

met a couple of guys with Super Enduros up around Ellijay to do some riding. Most of the trails were in this guys "neighborhood" but we had a blast. I got some video so will see if I can get something later this week...

but it was nice to get out on the SE again after a few months off...

Wound up having to dual-sport the Duke down six miles of washboard gravel road to grab the Alabama ADV tag. While I was grabbing the photo, a guy in a 4x4 F150 pulled up and asked "You rode that down here?"

True, but one must remain humble. The 'garage' was once occupied by George. He did not know his birthday, nor could he read. Yet he could identify any beer can at a glance. He helped work a farm and rolled his smokes from packaged tobacco. George was a really nice man. Took a little coffee with his sugar. I can still picture him sitting under the big tree next to the dog pen in his hook overalls.  :)

When I'm riding off the beaten path in sketchy spots, I keep a distance from other people I encounter. In fact, I ran into two separate cars involved in "flagrant delicto" at the top of the mountain.

Did a loop from Walker County, camped at Brushy Lake Saturday night. Sunday we rode back south on part of my dual sport route, neither of us had ridden any of except for the part in bankhead, a lot of stuff just named "road" on the GPS. It was like 125 miles for the whole day on Saturday, but over 175 on Sunday, finished in the dark and the rain.
Couple of pics, were any real suction mud areas, all the holes and creeks had hard bottoms. Particulary that spillway.

I rode 96 miles of dual sport riding today, with about 75-80% of it off road. I didn't take many pictures but I did shoot some video.

I also got to fly the drone some while I took a break for lunch. This was the auto-created video the app generated so it's not the best but oh well.

Stu, I lived in Bama for about 7 years and got connected with Bamarides about 5 years ago. Last year I got a job in Northern Metro Atlanta and have been riding up in the mountains some. Last month, I bought a house up in North Georgia and finally have gotten to get out and do some exploring.

Charlie's Creek Rd is about 1 hr from my place:

Today's drone shot was from Wildcat Rd, which is about 20-30 mins from the house.

More dirt than dual sport but it is tagged and I rode a few miles on the street to get there.....

Yesterday

Nice bike. Looks like a 250/300 xc-w? That's in my top 3 for whenever I actually decide to get a plated dirt bike.

Took the Six10 out for it's shake-down ride.

(http://www.pbase.com/kwb377/image/165156653.jpg)

Doesn't have the explosive power of the 510, but feels like it would tractor up the side of a house if you could hang on to it. The previous owner had the suspension lowered 1.5", serviced and revalved by Traxxion Dynamics. We are the same inseam, so it works perfect for me...it still has more travel than a KLR, DR, etc. but I can find the ground if I need to dab and not tip over.

I'll be swapping tires post-haste...the Metzeler Karoos utilize technology that somehow provides zero traction on pavement or dirt.

I managed to get out and ride some around Suches, Ga.

First there was exploring some single track I heard about from a buddy.

https://youtu.be/D9NmUU6jtdk

Then I went chasing waterfalls.

(https://uploads.tapatalk-cdn.com/20170326/f33ca83caa39cfc9f7a30ab04fea83d0.jpg)

Then I hit Flatlands Rd at a spirited pace.

https://youtu.be/Z2B8RBWwXXE

Up on Duncan Ridge at one of the pull offs, I met a guy on a Berg 570. He wasn't a hardcore rider and had not been down Flatlands before, so I backtracked a little and escorted him. I think him being able to see my lines really helped boost his confidence.

Wound up doing about 60 miles, much of which was on trails. All in all, a good day to ride [emoji106]

I wound up back in Suches this morning to get in some more exploring. It was a little foggy...

(https://uploads.tapatalk-cdn.com/20170327/80f1fc2cdf87410c79fb8f888aeaf0b2.jpg)

I came across a trio on bikes who happened to be heading up to Hawk Mtn, so I joined in. I usually ride solo, so I don't get to get footage of others. I did today though. Here's the Active Track auto tracking feature on my drone...



Then we proceeded to head up the rest of the way up.



After that I split off and wound up on a fun little trail.



Then I decided to play in the mud...



Took a less direct route back through a TON of fog, and wound up back here for a late lunch...



Around 70 miles today in the fog and sometimes light rain. All in all, a good day to ride.

I'm not sure if she is a gentle giant or a siren trying to lure me to my demise. Every thing I have tried so far has been so easy, a little dirt road, twisty pavement ( for around here), rode up a hill on a power line that's not at all difficult on a dual sport, felt about the same on the 1090. I'm tempted to try harder off-road,but I know at some point I'll have to pick the beast up and I'm not looking forward to it!  :)

Yes, it was a dual sport ride...complete with dirt roads and creek crossings.  Although, we had to go a little slower.
If you ever get up north of Pulaski, go see the Milky Way Farm.  Just ride on up the hill...look around....they don't care and it's a beautiful farm.

Looks like y'all had a nice day up north compared to down here. That 390 is getting to see some sights.
