The last time I went out dirt riding

Ontario, Canada

I've owned a dirt bike for a number of years now, but I don't manage to get out as often as I would like.

I'm not sure if I am saying I went that way, or if I am doing the hustle after an hour in the dirt

@alex - give me some notice if you can. I have a few things I have to fix on the 800GS -- new tires, etc. Man, after riding that KTM on Sunday, I'm spoiled for anything bigger

@champers - Flat track at Belleville sounds fun but I did mean next week during the week, if you can make it?

@champers yup, it's the EXC. It's a little heavy compared to newer rides, and if I had my drothers, I'd buy a 350 now. But it is awesome and I love it to bits.

Is that a 450EXC. I rose one on Sunday in the Ganny for an hour. What a sweet ride. Makes everything in there so easy and fun.

Maybe, but there're a few events this weekend -- flat track racing near Belville(?) and the Mazinaw ADV Weekend

Also met @richardvesna out there on what I always considered my private trail. It's the first time in the seven years I've been riding there that I have seen another bike there.Â

FWIW, I also managed to bang the other knee and bruise it, too. There's something about water that I cannot resist riding through it. 

I should probably have stitched the knee, and although it's now fine, it's left a fine looking scar.
