So what intails a weekend riding trip. Besides the obvious riding, is anyone into camping overnight somewhere are you talking about hitting up some hotel? I think I'll also being gearing up for some colder riding.

That's not too far, would be nice. I went for a small ride tonight after my workout and ended up near stockton lake. What a nice ride and I got used to the bike pretty quick. I rode though a group of baby rabbits and didn't hit any. I'm not good at hitting animals, so that was good. My ass is sore, so I either need to get used to the saddle or change out my seat to something else. I just took the handguards off. Because they block the wind, my hands were almost sweating. I'll put them back on when it gets cooler.

I'm up for a weekend trip, though devil's den isn't too far from me I never get tired of it. Plenty of mixed riding in the area.

Has anyone tried Chadwick Trails in the Mark Twain National Forest?

I have some extra camping gear if anybody needs any.

I usually load up pretty good on camping gear. Being married has slowed down my camping, but the times I've gone now I've minimized my load. Now of course I'll be learning how to pack a bike. I have a full frame backpack, but don't know how save I'd be wearing that, strapping it to the bike.

I havent been on any trails yet and won't be for a few weeks until I'm super comfortable on the bike. I wanted to try chadwick when I had my 660 Raptor, but ended up selling the thing after only one weekend of owning it. Someone offered me 1200 more than I paid for it, so I jumped on it. Monetarily, it was a good idea. The man part of me regretted getting rid of it. That thing was fun as Hell!

I've been past it, have been led it believe it's more of an ATV place than KLR friendly. If not correct would give it a go.
