Thanks - it is really fun to ride and sounds great. I consider myself an exhaust guy, and I usually get an aftermarket exhaust. This is the first bike that I want to keep the stock exhaust.


BTW I like using a roll chart because it makes me feel like a 1990s Dakar rider who is really slow! Learning that way to navigate through the wood honestly made moving to a GPS easy.

I love that bike with those big block knobbies..

You know if my Aprilia Rally had knobbies I’d think of doing this ride... tires now are too street oriented.

My 650 has street tires and I'll run it. But then again, it's smaller, lighter, and cheaper.....

You should be fine with your 650 in Brendan Byrne. Most of the trails are wide-open hard-pack unlike the soft sugar sand of Wharton. The trials and roads in Wharton used to be a lot tighter, but the Forest Service has been widening the roads as fire breaks and for access. Some of the areas we used to ride around Batsto are unrecognizable.

I hope you can join us on the 650!!! brap brap braaaaap :rider

John,

The ride will be on dirt roads in brendan byrne state park. Some are more traveled then others but unless we get a ton of rain or snon you should be fine. Not of it will be cut trial.

Good deal. I have a knobbly GS rear wheel I should throw on...

Praying for a warm spell.

This shows the route for the icebreaker. Lets hope for better weather then today. :rider

I'm currently rewiring and removing a few power consuming accessories on the 650, switching lights over to LED to hopefully allow for heated jacket and grips. It's a real rats nest from multiple owners. Slowly getting it back in shape!
