You dont quit riding when you get old, you get old when you quit riding.
I don't always ride street bikes, but when I do I prefer VStroms

NooB info here

To all n00bs:

There are generally three types of riding offered on the PAR thread. Hope you enjoy the area riding as much as we all do…

1) ADV rides- slower paced (not slow but slower paced) rides through mostly Blackwater State Park and other area beyond. Bigger 650s 400s do well on these rides. For those wanting a good ride without running a race. Stops, pic opps, and eating are normally on the agenda. Rides are as long or short as folks want.
2) FASTBURN – This is phrase I coined a while back to refer to a much faster paced ride through the tightest trails/jeep roads we can find. Most rides are through Eglin so permits are required. High skill levels are not required but highly recommended. The rides are usually in the morning and are over in 3 to 4 hours.
3) Beasty Rides where the action is almost all street. Great rides through Fl, Al and beyond.

YOU MUST HAVE A TAGGED AND STREET LEGAL BIKE FOR ALL RIDES

Meeting Places

Blackwater State Park – Hutton Unit
30.686006
-86.876478
From Milton – East on HW90 to Hutton Store (about 9 miles from Milton bridge) and turn LEFT on to Deaton Bridge Rd (signs point to State Park and Canoe Rental). Go North 2 miles and Hutton Unit parking will be on the left.

Broxson Landing(Eglin Permit Required)

From Pensacola on 98 - Head East until you reach Mary Ester Cut Off. Big Four Lane just past Target. Stay on Mary Ester cut-off until it tees into Beal street. Take a LEFT and keep going about 5 miles. On the way you will pass Fair Grounds on left and Golf Course on Right. You are close. Keep going and look to left for Red Sign and parking area can be seen from road.
From I -10 - Exit I-10 South on 85 towards Niceville. Bear Right at 126 and go to Airport. Just before airport, Turn Right on 4 lane and then take Next (first) right onto one way - then join 4 lane and look for Second Paved Right.

Well you thought right--you skreetbike riders ARE outcasts, but we let ya hang around because at least you have the good sense to run TKCs on yer skreetbike.

Vic, thanks for posting up that info, should be helpful for n00bs. I'll be doing a 1) ADV ride tmw afternoon, laid-back pace, n00b friendly. All are welcome, as per usual.

Yeah.
Street bike!

Tell us agaIn - please!

Easy enough, Tony.

But after seeing Mad's really, REALLY nice DL650, I am a mixed bag. After having the 1000, his makes me drool, fool.

Nice bike... the DL650 is. Tony has his juuuust right.

What I should do is keep the XL600V on blocks.

Hope everyone is prepared!! Generator, water, flashlights etc..

Hate to say it but we are way overdue..

Vic, Keep us posted if you tear down the KTM. Curious as to how worn out she might be.
