woody_79 you need to check out the O.D.S.C web site there is lots of info in there. There is a bunch of people in your area that ride. Ganaraska forest is probably your best spot for riding in your area. O.F.T.R is another web site to check out also. I am going to going the club next year. Ontario needs to have more area to ride. We should be set up like Michigan is for trail riding. You put insurance on your bike and buy a ORV sticker for the year then your good to go as long as it's an ORV trail.

Woody you don't need a street plate to ride in the woods. Just get an off road plate and insurance on your bike. If you haven't already. You don't have to have a licences to join the ODSC or the OFTR. The ODSC does plan rides were you need a blue plate for some of there rides. But you can use the site to hook up with guys to ride with. If you join the ODSC half of your $40 membership goes to the OFTR. Get in contact with riders in you area and I am sure I'll find more areas to ride. If you look again at the ODSC site some of the first post you'll read will say,
"going riding at ________ on Sunday anyone interested?"


And don't knock old guys, you could learn a lot riding with an experienced rider. I am sure there is some older riders with 20 or 30 years experience that could run circles around you and throw mud in your eye. :nener:

Your KX 100 would make great woods weapon but your probably looking to ride at the MX tracks.
