    Announcing the 1st Ever New England "Herd of Turtles Rally"

    in conjuction with the famous akaRob's Camp and Ride

    October 28th to 30th at Mt. Misery campground

    Pachaug State Forest, Voluntown Ct.

    We have at least 4 TW riders showing up. Why don't you join us?

    We'll probably ride on Saturday the 29th, at least.

    There is no requirement to camp, but it's free if you do. (or so I've heard)

    There are hundreds of miles of great riding in the area, from easy country roads, to graded dirt park roads,

    unmaintained abandoned roads,to gnarly, challenging trails.

    We'll plan one or more rides depending on what attendees want to tackle.

    Mrs Trip likes the easy dirt. Maybe you'd rather ride "babyhead hill"

    Beat yourself up on the entire 58 mile "Enduro loop"

    Don't miss the largest gathering of TW200's east of the Rockies!!

    Your bike must be registered. No jerks, please!

    Post up here or PM me for more info and if you think you can make it.

    Happy Trails!

    Woo Hoo!!

    Looks like we are already up to 5 participants!!

    I will post a list of the likely suspects once I get some confirmations.



    Did I mention that every attendee is going home with a Free TW200 lapel pin??

    I'll bite. 'Zup with the lapel pin?



    I can explain it to you, but I can't understand it for you.

    Powdercoated '87 frame, extended swingarm, YZ fork legs, ATV tire, 14/55, XT350 tank, spliced quick-release seat, disc brake conversion, beeg headlight, beeger rack, Lizrdcooler, Lizrdventz and bunch of other stuff all covered in invisible ink.

    Take a look at my avatar. I'm the PinHead behind www.LapelPinPlanet.com

    It's only, what, 3500 miles to get here? You can get one too.



    (actually, Lizrdbrth, seeing how I shamelessly stole the "Herd of Turtles" metaphor from your excellent nuptial adventure, if you PM me a mailing address, I'd be happy to send you a couple as late wedding gifts.)

    I love the Shinji Kazama reference. I spent many an evening searching for details on the expedition, and the bike itself.

    I've got a spare off a 93 you can use if you can't get it working. Now I really have to get the engine swapped so I can get one of those lapel pins.



    Here is a shot of Baby Head Hill





    Another shot of from the spring time





    This is part of the trail before I cleared it out. If the water is down it is still real rocky but there is a go around for everything.
