Dirt riders wanted!

Soo I got me one of them dirt jobbers and I'm itchin' to go do some good trail riding this weekend.
Anyone wanna tow a dirt noob through the national forest or any other cool trails?
I rode out at my buddy's ranch all weekend and feel pretty comfortable on the thing now.

I'll buy lunch and beer, err umm soda, for who ever volunteers.
We can use my truck too if needed.

-Tom

I would ride but I dont have a bike.
I dont think the F4I would like dirt too much either.

let me see what I can do Tom....I'm hoping for a Saturday afternoon track riding at MSRH, but if that falls through I may ride some trails on Sunday. I have no spark arrestor so the National Forest is out of question for me, not to mention it may be closed (not sure if it is open yet after Ike had it shut down temporarily). Maybe Highlands? a little trails and MX? Let me see man, I'll give ya a call.

Yeah, just checked the national forrest site and your right, the trail east of lake conroe is open and the rest will be open at a later date.

Please post up ride details once you figure things out.

thanks!

I just got a MX bike and was planning to go to the track in 59 south. It will be my first MX ride so I'm a noob as well.
You can tag along if you want or we could go to see some trials but I really don't know where to go.

Cliff,
I'm getting ready to load my bike and head out.
You down or what?

KSTRS,
sorry to hear about your grandma. Lost mine a couple years back and I still think about her all the time.
Never be another generation like that one.
