Agreed.

I'd like to see Vic in something like that, plus some of the other veteran enduro warriors we have around here

Great Vid Thanks Rob!

So true isn't it?

I have made some of my closest friends through off-road riding.

I got a late start at it but hope I can continue to do it for 30+ more years.

I bought this several months ago when Madhouse said something to the effect of "...you might like this..."
It ran but was seriously clapped out. I replaced a few things and now it's done. Simple.

I'm going to Texas this coming weekend to try the AHRMA post vintage class. I'm going with my pal Mark in Jackson MS... he's got a IT200. It should be a hoot!

Anyways, thanks Tony! The exhaust is perfect and it runs great with the stock jets.

After (doesn't look much different)

Robin!
I'm excited about your trip to the ARMA events. SO glad the pipe worked out.

The measurements are very close since I was able to use my stock XR as a guide for shape ect.

Vic, i know there's GoPro's and a dozen other helmet cams running all the time when you Mans do fastburn routine, but i'd really like to give you the proper Film treatment one of these days. Stories, wisdom, bullshit, history, jokes, All.

Ain't nothing to it but to do it, as Inept would say

New Old Guy with Florida Panhandle Questions


http://www.advrider.com/forums/showp...56&postcount=1

The video pretty well summarizes my attitude towards riding 'til I drop.

Your ”panhandle old guys” forum areas seems to be the right place to ask my questions.

I’m a long time rider (both dirt & street). I have been in an ECEA enduro club for 29 years

I will be coming to Florida in late June 2012. On my way to visiting family in Bradenton, I want to take a look around the panhandle area, with a view to maybe relocating. The riding opportunities may be pretty good in the panhandle Apalachicola neighborhood…correct?...comments?

On a return drive from Bradenton last spring, I got lost and ended up wandering in northern Florida long enough to think “Wow! This is just like the pine barrens of New Jersey (where I have been riding for decades)…so I would like to explore the area over a few days in June…the question is where exactly?.

My initial impression is that the east side of Apalachicola N.F. might be a good place to relocate. Small towns next to the forest could provide easy on-road ride into the forest without trailering. And with Tallahassee not too far I could probably find competent doctors and hospitals (I have a seizure disorder and a pacemaker, my wife is recovering from cancer). Is this anywhere near true? Or are there better regions that you could recommend?

Is Apalachicola N.F. actually friendly to off road riders? My good old pine barrens are being strangled by unelected “environmental” bureaucrats that think preventing a salamander from getting a headache is more important than dirt bike access. Are some N.F. areas better than others? What are the best access points to those areas?

As a total know-nothing about the panhandle area, I would appreciate any local insight into better areas, towns, that would combine a decent place to live with easy access to good areas to ride.
