    Southern MA Dualsport/supermoto ride

    Id like to get one of these organized. I know of about an hours worth of good roads, including one dirt road. Is there any interest in this? Area will be along the lines of Medfield, Dover, Sherborn, Bellingham, woonsocket, etc.

    We can go longer or shorter, whatever sounds good.

    Skill level is average, nothing crazy but not slow.

    Any interest?

    EDIT:

    saturday july 28 at 10am. I have a 1-2 hour ride i know of. Bbq some burgers and dogs at my place after.

    Little of both.

    I don't ride a motard, I ride an adventure thing. Really growing to like dirt roads though.

    Missus has me on a reduced ride diet until well after the wedding and probably can't make it anyway.

    Re: Southern MA Dualsport/supermoto ride

    Fair enough :o

    This will be more of a moto ride than an adventure ride for sure!!! I picture adventure to be 800 miles though canada. This will be dirtbikes with street plates going out for an hour or two.

    At least thats how I envision it. Anybody is welcome. The one dirt road isnt impressive. Pretty much making the best of what is local!

    Phuck, I just figured out where you are. I thought Dover, MA was out past Townsend and Fitchburg. My bad.

    Carry on.

    Correct. Or we can avoid the dirt, or we can detour through franklin and wrentham dirty trails. Just feelng it out now. Ill ride anything. I am running avon distanzias, so no knobbies for me. Maybe we can bbq at my place after, idk. I have a SMALL 100 yard loop with a SMALL table top at home whIch could be fun.

    Battery (ordered), carb cleaning (won't idle- probably pilot jet), oil change, air filter... maybe some other stuff as I dig into it! Also, getting a VT plate as it's an E model.

    I would be in, but I havn't added the proper DOT stuff to my KTM to be legal. While it has a plate and insurance, not having signals, mirrors and a brakelight may attract unwanted attention. Let me know when you're thinking and maybe I'll try and whip something up

    You can definitely count me in. I prefer the dirt and so do my knobbies.

    The pulaski area in Northwest RI has some amazing dirt roads to ride around.

    Pretty sure we rode some of those roads a few years ago on the Thrill & Chill dualsport ride, nice for sure.

    There's also some great roads/trails just over the line in Ct, Pachaug forest. This is a pic from one of the rides I lead there a few years ago..

    Can't really make it on the weekend, but I would like to know some good roads in the Franklin/Bellingham area. It's getting aggravating going out for rides after work and always ending up going the same places.

    I should also note that I don't ride a DS or SM, haha.
