A few friends and I are planning to ride the Trans-Mass Trail on Saturday, 3/31. We're meeting in Winsted, Conn., at the Sunoco station at 9:30am.

It's a nice ride for a KLR, especially if you are new to the dirt. I laid it out in 2008 with KLR's in mind. It's all on public roads, no single track. A couple of the roads are Class IV (not maintained in the winter) and have some ruts but are not difficult to negotiate.

We didn't ride Saturday with the (failed) promise of 1-3" of snow in the hills. A couple of us went out for a local Western Mass ride on Sunday and had a great time. We did dirt roads in Westhampton, Worthington and then up to Charlemont. Some were on the Trans-Mass. All the roads were in excellent shape. The temperature never got higher than the low 40's but we were all comfortable in heated gear.

The riding season has begun!

Folks, my wife just let me know that her family is coming to visit on Memorial day weekend, so for the sake of my marriage im not going to be able to make the ride that weekend. I know some of you were also tentative for Memorial day.

If the remainder of the group still wants to go, no problem here. Otherwise I would like to propose we try to reschedule till june 9th weekend.

Let me know what works best for you.

I see that many of you are already signed up for the Charlton,MA weekend on the 9th. Why don't we all do that trip together and if anyone is still interested in doing the puppydog trail we can plan another date. Im going to sign up for Charlton.

If you guys want to re-schedule the ride to another time we can..

However I still would like to do this ride since I have already blocked off that 3 day weekend for this ride .

If one of you guys is familiar to the area and would like to lead the group , we can go ahead as planned. Because I do not know the area at all.. I am okay with getting lost and explore the are too.

( By the way, I am going to that other ride too https://www.klr650.net/forums/showthread.php?t=98822 )

I know I will have 5/28 off of work in the PM. If the ride gets bumped, I can run the northern part. I'm located about 1.5 hours from the bulk of the route. I hope to jump in for part of the run, depending on schedule.

Since no one really posted anything to the thread regarding to the change in plans I am starting to assume that people are not willing to do this ride?
I still want to do this ride if somebody wants to lead the ride. I do not mind getting lost (after all that is why I sold my sport bike and got an adventure bike ). I can follow somebody who has a little bit of an idea on the area and enjoy exploring..

So are we still doing the ride or not?

Offer still stands for 5/28 - run through the northern ADKs. I have to work Sat and Sun in the AM, so that pretty much shoots things for me.

Since this ride didnít look like it was going to happen as of last night, I made other plans. So I am out.

Maybe we will try to do it again sometime later.
