    Kick-a$$ ride today at Brendan Byrne State Forest in NJ with four of my riding buddies, all on TW's! Three from the 80's and two from the 2000's.



    Anyone familiar with the great state of New Jersey knows that the terrain in the state's forests can be incredibly sandy. Today I made my first ride ever over this type of landscape, and at first it was not fun. My riding mates all had more experience navigating in this area, and they seemed to have no trouble maintaining traction and a brisk pace. It took me an hour or so to realize to keep the throttle open and my weight in the back tire, and soon I was keeping up. I gained some skill today and had a blast, as usual.







    our rides for today





    on the beach.









    some ruins of an old World War I ammunition factory...

    It's always cool to see that many friends on TW's enjoying a ride together. Looks like you saw some great country. I haven't mastered the art of riding in sand yet, so you're ahead of me. I enjoyed the history along with the pictures and video. Thanks for taking us along!
    My handle is B-dub, I ride a T-dub, and drive a V-dub.

    I wish I had ruins nearby to explore. It looks like a really nice place to go. Thanks.
    Long live the internal combustion engine!
