I've been watching it on VS channel.
I hate that Jonah Street got hurt. Atleast he can say that he won a stage of the Dakar with his own money.

Yea but i am watching the daily video highlights on www.dakar.com. Plus its got live traking if your watching during the day. All the americans are out of the bikes. But in the cars we still got two going strong..
Would be kinda cool to see some quad highlights, those guys have them things loaded with gadgets.

I propose meeting sunday and or monday morning at Broxon? Weather could be iffy on sun. Anyone???????

Anyone ridin tomorrow? I've been a lurker here for a while and it seems like my weekends are always jampacked with family stuff. I was suposed to go ridin with some buddies on 2 smokes but everyone backed out , so now I will probably go cruzin around Eglin. Would love some company (I don't know the trails at all, minus the dirt roads) Or if someone could point me in the right direction to find some good riding I would apprciate it.

Welcome Rigger,
One note about Eglin, there arent any "trails" we ride the numbered fire roads. Thats our story an we're stickin to it!

But seriously, blastin the jeep trails is the main attraction in Eglin - theres not much for singletrack there. Blackwater has some more trail-y stuff.
I suppose youve already got yer Eglin range permit?

I see yer sportin the DRZ, mark another one down for 'zooki, Inept!

Where ya'll gonna ride them smokers?




Madhouse, Ive got one question - why the hell are the bleachers empty!??!

Got all the required legal stuff to keep the man off my back. We were going to go to the Escambia track or go ride Walton Plantation. No "trails" guess this morning will turn out to be a "scouting" expedition for deer huntin next weekend. That will be my story for the day!

Thanks for the Pic

Madhouse,
You made my day!!!

Love it, I mean, them!

Can you imagine how impossible it would be to ride in FRONT of them?
Even if you used your mirrors you would never look at the road. Just a happy thought.

Two or three of us of thinking of riding Eglin later today for a few hours. We live in Ft Walton and will hit Eglin at Timber Creek and ride north of Field 4. Should be good riding today.

If anyone is interested in joining us let me know and we can set time and place.

Black River riding?

Pat & I are still down at TdA below Talahassee, but plan to run along the coast and up to Black River SP in a couple days.

Any dirt recommendations for a yankee unfamiliar with the area?

If you are in the Ft Walton Beach (panhandle area) and want to ride Eglin give me a post. I may be able to show you guys around. I ride mostly dirt but will be off this week and available to ride.

Just give us a post and we will see what happens.

Plenty of good riding at Eglin but you need a $10 permit.

Hey guys my friends and I are relatively new to the area (milton to be exact) and all have dual sports. We have been to the "Avalon area" but is there anything else this side of the bay before we hit eglin that we should know about?

Also, any recommendations for good servicing in the area (for when Im too lazy to fix what I broke)?
