Thanks for the warm welcome!

It was agreat ride, my first DS outing in South Fl was quite interesting! My only previous experience on sand before yesterday was limited to few hundred feet at a time, so I got quite a workout on the big KTM, which handled amazingly well considering the bald street bias tire and the air pressure we were running.

Thanks to Teevee, Rubadud and Speedracer for allowing me to ride with them, first class company. It was fun listening to tevee's adventures in Nicaragua. No matter where we come from, theres a common language and love for doing stupid things that adventure riders share.

Im already looking forward to the next ride.

If you have a don't have a street legal DS bike, the ORV trails in ONF are your only choice. They are usually whooped out, lots of deep sand, and 2-way traffic (kind of dangerous if you're flying around a blind corner).

If you have a street legal DS bike, there is plenty of better riding in the area. A 950 IS a handful in ONF without knobbies. I wouldn't take a 950 on the ORV trails, unless you're a weightlifter and want to get a grueling workout.

If you'd like to check it out, a few peeps are doing a ride up there in a couple of weeks. Check this thread...

Would someone be kind enough to clue me in on where Loop Rd is? I'm trying to put a ride together down that way...

It's Snowing!

35 years ago today, it snowed in south florida.

I remember it well, standing outside watching it fall. All the kids got let out of their classrooms so they could see it.

I made a snowball and kept it in the freezer until it disintegrated.

I can probably ride Sunday. I need to ride Sunday. Next week I'm on a cruise ship with 40 heavy metal bands from Europe. Once we leave port it's non stop till we return. I'm handling the staging, lights, and all the labor. I have two 53' semis and a 24' box truck loading in at 6 AM Monday.

I need some two wheel therapy....

What is your plan? Im thinking of doing a MTN Bike race tomorrow morning, but if I chicken out on that (depends on number of beers tonite), Im definitely up for some riding...I will also need some therapy! Let me know.
Thanks
