Don't sell all of your bikes S-K-I-T-T-L-E-S, we always need our token guy out on the range/trail with us...but in all seriousness keep one bike like the KTM for those days that you can do anything on ST/Eglin/trots/etc!!!!

People like you dont get "out" unless something really drastic happens (like getting married)... you got to much love for the sport to be OUT....

Sweet Thrusday Ride

Mr. Ineptizoid and I met at Spec Pond and laid out a really nice 104 mile BEAST ride for the Trot.
Lots of good twisties, a trip through Defuniak Springs, a stop at Red Bay Grocery (for Fried Chicken Lunch) the back West down 20 to Niceville and back up to Spec.

Fantastic day...

See Tracks below


For those of you who dont really want to ride the sands of Eglin, come on out and join the Trot BEAST Ride..

KTM just got the blessing from the KTM service gods and will be advertised as soon as I have pix... $4100 is advertised price for KLX and $2750 for the KTM. Both tagged and ready to rip. I will give PAR dudes a discount. of 1.28% :)

KLX: Electric start. Working headlight, taillight and led brake light. Runs perfect. . Appears to be faster than all dirt KTM's...

Might not be able to ride this weekend--gotta pick up the KTM from repair facility out of town. Sunday would be my better day if I feel up to it. I had a gnarly crash on Sunday out at the Whiting OHV park--hit a tree dead on and center-punched my sternum with the handlebar end (I guess) Hurts like a MF to breathe , so I am trying not too.



KLX 450 SOLD.

Yes! we will meet at Spec Pond and Ride a LONG loop to explore and lay out tracks for the Turkey Trot. This will be a DIRT ride FASTBURN from what I can tell so far. It may even be eppic if eveyone has time to do 100 miles...

BTW if we go the long run there will be areas you have never seen..


Skid = I have the feeling you are going pure single track on us...not that there is anything wrong with that...

Skid How hard did you hit that tree.

The little Metro behind the DR in south fl looks fun, not very woods ready though.
