I'm Looking For A Few Good Minis

I'm looking for a few mini dirt bike riders that wanna help me carve a trail. The trail will be fairly boring, with maybe one jump, and mostly winding in and out of some trees along a right of way near my house. There's a lot of area here (for a mini), though, and it would make for some fun mini chasing with 3, 4 or 5 guys out there. A trail can be cut in less than an afternoon with a few people helping. There's nothing to do but ride - no weeds to cut down or to clear. At worst there's a few holes that swallow a mini that can be shaped with a shovel. Trail gets carved by the pure awesome power of a mini. I don't want to invest a lot of time in this trail because I don't own the property it sits on and it's possible one day that we'll get run out of there, even though it's not exactly in the backyard of any subdivision (although it's within view of a police station).

Mini dirt bikes with knobbies best. XR/CRF/TTR/DRZ or the like. No full-size bikes. Mufflers, please. Don't be an idiot - wear gear. If you bust your , it's not my fault - property belongs to the city...or county...or someone. Not sure who. No squids. I can recognize squids and will cordially invite them to eff off.

The location is secret, so PM me. South side - League City area.

There's very little shovel work to be done. I ride the trail now, it's just not marked very well and I'd love it to be more defined. I get lost in the trees, even though visibility is very good. Riding is 90% of what it needs. The other 10% is shaping to make it better, if so desired.

Another reason for me to pick up a mini again. I'd like to get a TTR but looks like the tornadobootcamp is also looking for one or ten!

More shaping. More smoothing (this trail is rough as on these little bikes), and a couple jumps here and there and we're done. Tim (Godsuki) came over and we played chase while we carved up a trail. This is the last couple laps of the day.

If you learned how to read text messages you could have had a mini for this.

Now I think I'm on the hunt for a 150.

Various Equipment for various uses.
Dirt, Street, Track, Dual Sport, I like em all.








That looks like fun and a fast track. If you want to really wear in the track, put a few big bikes on it and have em run it a bit and it will wear in much quicker. I am sure you dont want big bikes on it much, and maybe they would draw too much attention but it sure would put down a groove.
