Took my 89 smurf to windrock park last friday. Still sore today


I'm a dirt noob. Not having allot of technical experience I relied on intuition- to know when not to hesitate vs looking before I leap.



Will be:

Getting hi bars -at 6' standing was cramped.

Ditching the hiking boots and investing in some moto or dual sport boots - any narrow fitting boot recommendations appreciated.

Making effort to get technically better through practice, lessons maybe even a book(hey my time to ride is limited).​





Here are some pics-

















Some of this stuff was pretty hairy for me. Much steeper than pics show-







Cheers-

Looks like a great place to ride, where is Windrock?


Where is Windrock?




It's in east Tennessee, I live in Knoxville TN.

"Windrock Park is 72,000 acres of off-road excitement located just north of Oliver Springs, Tennessee. Thousands of adventurous off-roaders visit our park each year. The trails accommodate all types of vehicles imaginable. ATVs, SxS, dirt bikes, mountain bikes, Jeeps/4x4s, buggies and trucks all enjoy some of the best off-roading in the country. Windrock Park is the largest privately owned riding area in the country. Come see what everyone is talking about!" http://windrockpark.com/



Fun place, it was my first time going on the tw200. I have been there only once before, 5 years ago. They've built on to it allot since then. Hope to get to know the place better this year.

Nice pics! Its is an awesome place. Ive been there many times on an atv but havent been down since i got the tw. There is a good variety of trails there from easy gravel roads to some nasty rocky ruff trails. You can buy a map at the snack shack that labels all the trails and the difficulty level. They have alot of the big windmills in the mountains which are really neat to see and hear up close. I believe the north border is "royal blue ohv" and another park buts up on the w/nw side of the park i believe. Its a great area for a Dual sport bike. Highway 116 goes right down the middle of the property and its a nice curvy road. You live in one of the best places in the country for motorcycle riding. Your right between the smokey mountains and windrock. Thanks for the report...

Wow, that looks like some great terrain. To echo what admiral said, the steepness of the obstacle in that last pic was not lost on me!



Looking forward to seeing more of your ride reports in the future.
