spent all summer in clay county which neighbors perry, there is millions of miles of riding up there in fact more miles than road miles. seriously, the only down side is you have to have someone who know the area to show you around.I have some contacts I dont know if they would be willing to guide or not but There is a club from up there that would definitely be willing to guide you around, /daniel boon trail blazers
their forum has little traffic due to the fact that most of these guys dont have computers. or dont know how to use them.

I just heard about this area this morning by phone. Good ol' Pianoman called me @ 7:30 and was telling me that this place can be accessed only 19 miles from I-75 off exit 41. He said it's 56 miles to Hazard from the interstate and that's where the official trailhead is located. They're working on a ferry to take people across the lake from the trails to where a steakhouse and other amenities are located, such as a Wal~Mart & some gas stations. He said the ferry will probably start up next spring.

Ive met the Trailblazers before at Pickett. Theyre real good people, I was about out of gas and they spared me enough of theirs to get back to the truck.

That's what riding is all about. I carry my flat pack full on rides, even if it's less than 50 miles. You never know who might need some gas.

I always carry 2.5 gal with me and since I bought my BigBear, I've only needed it once, done over 80 miles in one day. I've had it though many times for other people who I have been riding with or people I've come up on that needed a little. Thumb

For some reason I haven't thought about collecting anything for it, maybe I need to think about that think I could probably get about $7 a gallon on the trail with the way the gas prices are.

If it's someone in my group, I usually don't think about the $ part of it. If it's someone else I meet on a trail and they offer, I accept.

The one time I shared, yes. They handed me a $20 and told me to keep the change. I emptied it into one tank and added the rest to his friend's machine, which was easier on gas.

If you are going to ride a machine that has a small tank then you should know that it cannot go as far as the others and make provisions. Most rides are in the 30 - 50 mile range and I know that 3 gallons is usually stretching it. They should know that too. I don't mind helping someone out whether it is in our group or not. But when someone is habitual then it tells me they don't care.

If I take someone with me that I know has a small tank I will pack my Fuel Pack with gas just knowing that they will probably run out. That night at Pickett when we had the accident to deal with I had to use it. I rode almost 80 miles and went into reserve coming out with the trailer.

The time I'm talking about was during the poker run at last the Windrock fall jam last year. I was working one of the checkpoints and some participants had gotten lost and used a bunch of gas trying to find all the stations. They asked if we knew where they could get some gas nearby and I pointed at my pack. I knew I wouldn't need it since I was sitting stationary until time to head in. I told them there was 4 gallons in it and it was about $11 worth at the time. He handed me a $20, I was reaching for change, and he said it's worth every penny in his situation.
I think he ended up getting a helmet in the drawings for prizes.

Well that is a different story then. You offered, you priced, he paid and tipped you too.

It is not that I mind helping someone out. It is the Habitual ones that I am talking about.

No, I didn't price it to him, he offered the $20, then I was trying to give change so he wouldn't be paying me $5 per gallon. I don't cheat anyone.
Definitely don't ride with the ones that have a habit of running out of gas and not carrying their own extra. I always carry extra water in my cooler, you never know when someone may need it to either drink or rinse the dust out of their eyes.

I want to hear more about these trails in KY. How far is it from Lexington or Winchester? I have friends that live in Versailles and Winchester and I know both would be all about coming to check out these trails if we had a place to set up camp and someone to show us around.

LT, give ol Pianoman a shout about this new riding area, it's VERY close to him because he lives in London. The nearest point to unload & ride is supposedly about 25 miles from his house. He said you can start riding about 19 miles from I-75 from exit 41. Hazard is 50+ miles from that exit, that's where the main trailhead is located.

Is it supposed to be better than Evarts? I have not been anywhere yet that I like better than that place. I am just curious about some people knowing the way and knowing the knitty gritty on where to stay, regulations, etc. I would definitely be up for logging some miles there if someone would act as a guide.

Maybe we could fine some local group to guide us around

Well, I know Pianoman pretty well. I will put the bug in his ear and see if there are any plans to hit that place early next year. I will be stuck in the sandbox till January, but after that it is GAME ON. I am hoping to wear out some tires next year Laughing

If I know him, he'll be riding on it soon. Right now, he's busy with the HCRR functions. He'll go ride it and send me a report, I'm sure.
