Skid, I'll take you up on that when you get back.

Will probably leave the bars on the bike for stability unless you think of is better.

Thanks

Yea that was fun.
Dale Harris, Paul Kennedy, Keith Kolo and others use to frequent that place too!
So much has changed.
All the trails around Spring Lake,,,,,Quintete.

GONE.

If ONLY we could be selfish and not share our secret places.
Might still be able to ride some of them.
Over populate and closure.

Hally from Tally no Smilly

Helmac drove from Tallahassee this morning to me with me FBM and Gimme for BlackWater at its best. After aobut 25 miles of some varried terrain, Helmac commented on his bike handling funny. Sor' nuf.... flat rear.

He limped back to pavement where, being the good ADVers we are - we abandoned him to his fate - waved "bon voiage" and ran another 30 miles. We did meet back up with him at the Karack and had lunch at Mickeys so all was good.

Halmac, Nice to finally meet and greet with you and hoped you enjoyed what you saw.

We'll have to venture over to Tally soon...

Weather was "ridin weather" for sure!!!

Nope never rode that-- We used to park off a paved to dirt road about 1/2 mile in off the Chumuckla Hwy behind a private airstrip. Later I used to park on Quintette and then wind the bike through the neighborhood that abutted the forest, and would cross a really small homemade 2x4 bridge through a creek/swamp.

I am pretty sure I logged some 50-70 mile days and I don't think we rode the same loops twice. I heard there was close 100 miles of trail out there at one time--that's probably counting the connecting dirt roads...

I really liked all of the Quintette/Chumuckla riding area. Most of the guys I ran into out there were pretty fast. I rode with several flight students and flight instructors but the guy that I mostly rode with was a Chief Petty Officer stationed at Whiting Field and was a AA rider from out west.

He didn't really like the "tight ass piney f'n woods" that we have down here but taught me how to navigate the damn sandy turns out there. Great memories of spankin' the young guns that rode out there too. 'Course me and George would be dead ass tired afterwords but it was worth it!!

Yes, a rather inauspicious debut into the P'cola riding community for me. Aye, but the company and riding were excellent. My abandonment was a gentleman's abandonment, replete as it was with offers of assistance and an alternative rescue plan should I not be found back at the truck. Which I was after a precarious flat tire ride first outa the woods, then about four miles up 189.


All that said, it was a bit annoying to spend more than six hours in my car for about one on my bike! But such is the fickle finger of fate, especially when it comes to m/c tires.


I did journey down to the AF office to fetch me an Eglin pass, having benefitted from the video and having parted with $6. Tee-hee: Senior Citizen half price.


Thanks, gents, for the brisk 24 mile ride, I’ll be back for more. In the meantime, the ANF is my playground (and that of many others) and I should be honored to show y’all its many delights. During the week, or on any w/e.

Vic, it's John. But I'll answer to almost anything, except Jim. That's my brother.
I like the VOR's. They are more capable than what I'll ever want to do on them.

Penton Owners Group? I've done my share of lurking there. Vast amounts of info and knowledge there.
I'm almost done with a '72 JackPiner 175, then my '73 Six-Days is next. Just finished a '83 KDX200 to go
with my '80 KDX175. Wayne came over this afternoon to give me his approval on everything. Such a nice guy.
I did make sure he didn't get out of my sight so no violations could occur to any of my bikes or pets.
