    Default Day in the Dirt

    Wow, first full day off road in about 15 years learned and relearned
    some things

    1. Located muscle groups that had not been part of a routine
    exercise program They were not pleased to be discovered as they had been resting comfortably

    2 This is still as fun as I remember

    3 Found exactly where the power kicks in on an RM250 (thanks for the Zip tie surgery on the fender Chris

    4 Wow front disc brakes on a bike can slap you down in a heartbeat when you brake like you are on the street bike

    5 I still love climbing hills

    7 Wow I dont remember getting winded this quick

    8 Glad this 2 stroke kicks over easy

    9 Chris will slam his bike to the ground to keep you from running into
    a spot that may cause you to hit the cases since you dont have a skid plate yet.

    10. Rusty & out of shape for this but it was one of the better days on a
    bike in quite some time.

    11 Amazing how hard you can crack your head into a tree with a good
    helmet and just keep rolling laughing the whole way because it was a good line

    Had a blast, frustrated by what I remembered to do as I was doing the opposite quite a few times but had a blast, offroad will become part of
    my riding from now on again cannot believe I went this long without it.


    Damm a hot shower felt good on some old bones, took some advil too
    just in case

    Glad you had a good day Buddy, the SA dirt group is growing fast. I spent the day at Cycle Ranch near Floresville, Watched some good racing with the gang from Extreme Powersports and was able to do some riding also (not on the track). I think it would be a great place to come together as a group, good riding for the whole family. You can camp for the weekend if you like, cook, build a fire, just have a blast.

    Forgot the most important part. The ground is sandy and fairly soft, just in case you have my kind of skills.

    No real trails, just a big area to ride around and goof off. and of course the track, well groomed and available to everyone on non race days. Donny mentioned bringing the kids and i figured that if we wanted to involve the families this would be a good place.

    If we want to do trail riding, then i recommend Zar's Ranch. Just a few miles closer to SA than Cycle Ranch, you have to be sponsored by a member, but usually not a problem on weekend. Like Hidden Valley, Zar's has trails marked for different skill levels, not as big, but also not near as rocky. The rocks is what makes me think twice about going to Marble Falls, very unforgiving place to take a spill. Not saying it's not fun, just getting a little more careful, i seem to bruise easier now a days.
