So 2smoke says the gate is open in the CRWMA and there is some pretty good riding out there.  It has been awhile since I have ridden there and I would like to go back.  It will be moderate pace, and we will adapt the terrain to the riders, but I do NOT recall anything terribly difficult out there, so this would be a good ride for NOOBS, big bikes (650cc and up) or anyone brave enough to take a streetbike.  I would suggest the only requirement is some minimal experience in the dirt.  There will no singletrack, deadly hill-climbs, log-crossings or jumps.  We will also be less than 10 miles from pavement (most likely) and within cell service(hopefully).  The ride will be 2-4 hours, depending on interest, gates, water, and incidences.

If you have never ridden CRWMA, you should come on out.
If you have ridden CRWMA 30-times before - you will be leading the ride  :idea-013:
If you are frightened about what to expect, come on out, dip your toes, and make a decision out there, not in front of your computer.  :DANCING-banana-032:

This appears to be a great day for riding, and the area promises to deliver more than you can imagine - it IS a spectacle to behold.

Bring some water, a small sense of adventure, and maybe a camera?

I was thinking about going to the ridge with the KDX but might trailer it out there and just ride dirty with no tag . . .

Come on out.  You can drop the trailer behind Zaxby's, or be safe and drop it 5 miles up on the dirt and we can pick you up  :applause-003:

Oh, and don't let me poo-poo the terrain, there is lots of fun stuff out there to ride, or watch others ride/crash the trickier stuff  :lol-049:  - so there is fun for everyone, every skill level, and lots of options

Wow that was a fun ride till it got hot, then there was that almost crash, then I almost got runtover by the new guy that has not even signed up yet.......then there was the Pub 261......then there was the tranny that followed IceCold to the bathroom.....then.......

Ha!  Typical crazy BamaRides ride.  There's a vid in the works, I hope. 
Just remember, there's a reason the windshield is bigger than the rear view mirror.               -jrobinson
