Made it back Sunday night. Seven days, storms, huge waves, sun, wind, fear, peace, awesome!

Thanks for asking Vic. Lets ride!

With a storm approaching from behind us.


Sunrise 200 miles out alone on watch Saturday.

Are you gonna make the DS ride on the 20th? 690 Ride for sure.

As I recall there are several 690 riders out there who we dont see to often. Come on out. You will like this ride.

tough decision

Alright guys....I came to the realization that I was an idiot when I bought my Honda XR 650L....it is a hog and weighs way to much. Well, I bought my newphew a DRZ 400 and can ride that faster and better than the honda. Well, with that in mind...I am going to the KTM dealership and am between the exc 500 and exc-F 350. I'm thinking I will come home with the 500. Unfortunately the wife is not so supporting...so I am trading my babies in...the honda (ok with) and my 2009 Buel CR (sad about)...

I try to see all movies with motorcycles in them. Unfortunately we probably saw all the mc footage in the entire movie on that trailer...

Still good woods rider scenes.

You and SuperDave gonna make it to the 2oth Ride.

I am actually torn between the two... I guess if most of your riding is dicing through the trees on single track here in the south, then the 350 is the heat. But if you plan on doing some street time with it and dicing the trees with some occasional mountains and desert thrown in, then the 500 is the ticket.. IMO.
Make no mistake, that 500 can do it all.. For wee seen it first hand with a few folks. Need to get Vic and the other gentleman with the new 350 and test ride them both and make a decision.. come on hook the man up fellas.. bring those bikes out and let man test them both..

HS two days away, looking forward to it..

Name for the 20th Ride

Well since there may be a few people show up for this ride I thought we might give it a simple name to remember it by.

The First Annual Pensacola Area Riders' Spring Forward No Fee Black Water and Conecuh Forest Dual Sport Extravaganza and Ride.

That seems nice and short and easy to remember.

Even more basic. If you are gonna race ENDUROS or HS on a consistant basis and really want the best machine for that prupose- 350 baby.

It IS the same machine but not as much power so at the end of an LONG TERRIBLE day you will not be as tired. I rode 250F for 8 years in SERA I know.

For anything else - 5 Hunny Baby...

BTW anyone wants to ride my scoot just holler.... however, I require a written waver of responsibility for any adverse financial impact said ride may eventually require.

I rode a friends and it cost me 9k...
