    Veteran experienced rider looking for solid riding partner(s). Licensed motorcycle mechanic so I am handy in a pinch. I have an agile DRZ400 in top condition. Send me a note :)
    Located in Belleville but going to Ganaraska periodically.

    Yea for sure, I am a 22 year old male uni. student (I know im young but I would say im fairly mature and introverted if anything). I have a 2011 wr250r, and am somewhat new to riding but have a little bit of dirt experience like maybe 8 hours on a ktm 200 exc and maybe 20 hours on a crf23o. If you are still interested let me know and we can meet somewhere/exchange contact info. Cheers.

    Yeah lets go for a ride next week, from Cannifton Road up the old railroad track towards Madoc/Tweed. A good warm up for you.

    Al, i couldn't help but notice the beautiful Africa Twin, I have the same bike, and just returned from 2200 round trip on the MABDR. The bike performed flawlessly on the trails and the twists. Any issues with your bike?

    The only issue I’ve had is a start/stall problem. Took the kill switch apart and cleaned/ greased it. But ultimately I think I was because I was running 87 octane fuel for the shop here. It really seems to like the high test fuel. Sense I did those two things I’ve had no problems. Fork seals got to leaking once after a sand ride but I cleaned them out with a seal saver and no problems sense.

    Oh ya.... switching to led signal lights is a mess around if you want to keep the flasher rate. Mine just flashes fast for now lol

    that's interesting, the signals weren't on my upgrade list. I have already added, bark busters, skid plate, engine guards, bar risers, and foot pegs
