    Default Motopark Mori- Oct 31 & Nov 1

    Planning to ride and camp at Motopark Mori (Fukushima-ken) on Oct 31 & Nov 1. There is a 10km enduro course, MX course and freestyle jumps. Course cost is 2,000 yen per day. Went there in Sept and had a great time. There's a nice onsen about 10 minutes away from the course. If you have a dirt bike please join us...

    Cool! How late in the year is their facility open? Do they close at all during the winter?

    I'm not sure. I'll ask when I'm there. I did check that they'll be open on Oct 31 & Nov 1 though...

    Are you expecting dry conditions or the same mudfest as last time?

    Don't know what the forecast is yet. It's fun whatever the weather :-) There is a good power wash at course, so you can clean up your bike before taking it home.

    Forecast looks good for the weekend (cloud/sun). No rain is forecast during the week so conditions should be dry. A total of 7 people have confirmed so far. Should be a lot of fun both on the Enduro course and BBQ Saturday night. If you have a dirt capable bike, please join the fun...

    We (8 riders) had a fun weekend at Motopark Mori. The Enduro course was in much better shape this time and as it there had been no heavy rain recently, traction was good. Day time temps were perfect for riding, although it was cold overnight. The course is open year round, but may close if the is snow, or the ground is heavily frozen. It is therefore best to phone before going mid winter. Here are a few photos.
