I plan on checking this place out next Thursday or Friday. Anyone interested in meeting me there? Scooter has been there and gives it a thumbs up. Here’s the website http://www.ridelosttrails.com/

Your bike needs liability insurance and a quiet muffler. I just insured my bike (comp and liability) for $56 ($100 deductable)so it’s not bad.

Oops! Looks like they are only open Saturday and Sunday for now. I'll have to check to see if they will be open for the holiday week, otherwise this is a bust!!! :(

I might be up for it but will have to let you know later in the week, right now I'm short handed in the shop with guys on summer vacation. Can anyone tell me why I never seem to get one of those, seems like I'm doing something wrong around here. I'll be riding TC this weekend if you guys want to join me. Dan what's the topography like there? Any challenging stuff or just easy family type trails. I only ask cause I see their offering rentals and usually when that happens they have limited trails to cut down on liability.

Here's a quote from Dan on the current trails at Lost Trails:
"You will definitely be able to cover the whole park in a day, but they are fun trails. just to give you an idea, the trails are rated more towards the inexperienced rider, most of the blue trails, would have been a green3 or maybe green 2 at Paragon, and the red trails might have been a blue1. there are a few challenges, but nothing real aggressive like Paragon or Tower City. Its more family oriented."
I want to check it out even though it might not be super challenging right now. It is so much closer for me to drive to and I hope for it to become more technical as time goes on. They are still developing the place.

As of now he doens't plan on making on making any more technical trails. He wants to keep it more family oriented, and for beginners. There is the possibility of 2 other parks opening in the poconos by the fall, If Paragon opens there, I'm sure it will be more challanging, and the other park rummored to be opening in the area, claims to have 3 motocross tracks, and a couple hundred miles of trail.

:cool:
Dan, Lost Trail's waiver says your bike not only needs insurance but has to be registered too. I can't register my bike and asked Tony if I'll be OK (I have insurance). Is your bike registered?

no you dont need registration, it is recommended, but you dont have to have it. Paragon had that in their waiver too. It is to protect themselves.

Did Tony answer your last PM yet?

Yes. He is pretty confident about being open during the week next week but will know for sure by this weekend.

I was talking to Gordon and he may show up Friday. Is Friday good for you?

This park is privately run, not state run, and they do require insurance on bikes.

I'm from PA and every tag service i call say they don't register off road dirt bikes? Since they are not designed for the road.. And my insurance company says they only do ATV's not dirt bikes?? What the Heck!! I can race my bike but not ride here?

I know a lot of places wont insure dirtbikes, but unfortunately, the park requires it. in Pa and NJ you can get insurance from Rider
And to run Enduros, you need to be registered and insured, so I'm sure there are others that offer it too.

They're are definitely open next week so let's make it Friday for the ride. I'll be there by 8:30 (they open at 9:00). (thanks Dan!)

No registration is required, only liability insurance. I got my insurance through State Farm, took me 5 minutes and no hassles.

cool hope to see you there. And if you bring your kid, there is plenty that he will be able to ride there. He may have to stick to the green trails, since there are some big hills on some of the blue, but with time he will conquer them too.

Insurance in PA is not a problem for a dirtbike. You don't need to be registered to insure for liablity which is what they want. I use State farm but you can contact almost any company. When I used to insure my CR250r it would cost me about 125.00 a year and that included collission comp and theft coverage. My 525 is street legal and it runs me about 300.00 for full coverage.

I'm not sure if I'll be there Friday, but if not, you guys will have no problem following thier map to get around. Or here is the map from my GPS, trails aren't labeled, but they are all there. I dont think the park will have this map available yet, they need to label it with names and trail directions. http://rides.webshots.com/photo/2625656540014618418zASqYT

One of my best friends and riding buddies passed away from cancer the other day, and I'm just not sure if I'll be up for a ride. That news wasnt what I needed to hear on my birthday yesterday. You may or may not remember him, he was at one of our DRN rides about 4 years ago, his name was also Dan and he was on a YZF426. At the end of that ride he was telling me about some pains he had while riding, and about a week later he was diagnosed with colon cancer.

After 10+ years riding together, that was our last ride since he was too weak from chemo after that, but he never got rid of the bike and we always had plans to ride again.

He and his wife had addopted 2 kids since they were told they couldnt have children of thier own, 4 months before he was diagnosed with cancer his wife got pregnant. 2 years later when they thought the cancer had been beat, they decided to have another child. After that things turned worse with the cancer returning, and spreading to the liver.

I may be there friday, but i'm not sure right now.
