Anyone doing a forest ride, maybe sat?

I want to take my hyosung out to ride in some turns. nothing crazy just to see how it handles. I have the GV 650 not the GT. But i'll join in with any one riding.
I'm not trying to start a ride but looking just to join in on one. 95% sure I can make it.

Thomas, how's the forest road conditions?

Any updates? Maybe I'm wrong but wasn't there some gravel left over from construction?

There was plenty of gravel on both sides of the north end of 3090 on Saturday. A rider not in our group went down

I will...... I don't have to go this weekend. I'm just wanting to see how the cruiser handles. don't want to do a Full Sunday Fayetteville ride. Just some thing short. I want to push the bike a bit, a "nice" agressive pace would be nice..Never ridden with other cruisers don't want to have a 4MPH ride. This bike handles pretty well and id like to see what it does at moderate speeds.

sorry to hi-jack, but I am on there as well. same screenie though. havent really posted there since I found MH (and that I dont have a HYO yet..but I will )

A few years ago there was a GV concept (i think it was GV ?) called the tarmac killer, or "cruiser killer" something like that .. IT TURNED HEADS! there was a ton of positives for it, but not sure what happened. im not a cruiser guy by any means, but even id pee in its !



I'll see if I can find it and send you a link (if you havent seen.heard it before)
