Moto Cove july 6th or 7th - June 30, 2013, 10:37 PM

Anyone wanna go to moto cove this weekend?

Taskers was fun but the rocks got a little old IMO, but i will go back.

Saw a couple vids of the single track at the cove and it's looks to be good fun, more of a dirt woods trail.

The cove has rocks too. The blue/green trails were pretty much straight up rock gardens last time I was there. The long orange/red loops aren't too bad though.


I'll put myself down as a maybe.

Once you learn to accept your rocks....then all will be well.

But Jar is right. Once you get used to riding them nothing much else will bother you on the trails.

Learning to enjoy the rocks happened for me when I stopped trying to crawl through them.

Not saying it wasn't enjoyable, just never ridden on stuff like that. I just prefer what I prefer at least for now, until I can become rockstars like y'all.

I should be able to make this (Cove or Tasker's). It's certainly not easier than Tasker's if that is what you are looking for and I think it cost more. Still a good variety of terrain though.

I do agree that Taskers is too rocky. The narrow technical trails with large rocks and all are super fun and challenging ... and I'm surprised I got through them at all on my first day out on an ATV. But the wider easier road was overloaded with rocks. My ATV was flying over them without flinching, but I agree that it got a bit old and made my hands hurt a bit due to bounding like a maniac even on a seemingly flat road.

I'd go again for sure but I'd like to try somewhere different to compare to. I'm sure handling those bumpy roads also becomes easier with experience.

No "rock" stars here.. Honestly the first time I rode taskers I thought it was the most miserable place on earth (and I had been riding dirt for 21 years at that point.) I had no intention of going back for fun. However you soon learn there are no other close viable spots, so you suck it up and ride there.

After some time you start to enjoy the challenge and the rocks (It takes a few trips) If nothing else its great for conditioning. when you can ride rocks all day at a good pace, most things wont phase you.

and its $5....

I learned my lesson... Eat and hydrate before heading out @ Taskers, make sure you have a CamelBak etc.. The rocks are WAY more energy draining that anything I had ever ridden. I had a good time there. Agree with most of Jar's post above as well. I look forward to going back once I build a little more upper body strength

What I thought was a 30-60 minute "warm up" turned into a 3 hour ride that had me almost dead of exhaustion ..

My only dirt experience for the most part has been Taskers. It didn't seam to bother me one bit for a dirt noob but I like pain and suffering LOL. My girlfriend who just picked up a CRF150F will be learning on that lower fireroad to start and then transition to PetersMill as she gets used to it.

From what I have seen and heard, the Northeast is ALL rocky for the most part except for Wicomico and MX parks but that isn't my primary place to ride. I like the $5 pricetag of Taskers

Formal approval granted from the boss to ride this weekend. If you all are going to the Cove I may need to bum a ride. I don't think my car or trailer would fare well once I get off of the beaten path. I also re-installed the trail tech that the side by side took off the KX, lol. There is one hill at the Cove that gave me troubles the other year I would like to hit. I think Jar and Chris might of peaked my interest in hill climbs now.

I stink at hill climbs, just haven't had them in the places I ride regularly (well, legal hills anyway). I, too, see that as an area needing improvement. My interest in hills was piqued when I took a peek at a peak in PA and gave it a shot. I made it 3/4ths of the way up while the bike made it 13/16ths of the way. After that I decided to get off the hill and just ride the trails. Shame has shadowed me ever since.
