    I assume you have tried kicking along with e button? 530 are famous for starting issues.
    Good luck.

    So I missed the adventure group some how this morning and elected to ride with D group. Kaosrider was leading. First time meeting him and his wife. Super nice folks who were willing to put up with slower riders and total noobs like me.

    We started with 10 riders who stuck together for the morning ride and lunch. KR took the time to give us some very needed instruction on how to deal with the soft sand. We had one guy go down and get a little banged up. I believe we also passed two riders from C group. One of which went off a small bridge in the forest and submerged his bike in the creek. I believe he is ok and looking forward to hearing the story.

    There were a ton of puddles and some decent size ones. I think everyone's boots got wet. With the temps dropping it was good if your feet stayed dry.

    5 of us continued for a short ride after lunch where I put my 1190R down in some deep soft sand just before I took my head off on some low tree branches. No more new shiny bike for me. One other guy lost it in some soft sand too but everyone of us following Kaosrider had a good time. Thanks for the ride today!

    It was good to meet ya yesterday on the B+ ride. Had a blast, wish I wouldn't have forgotten the GoPro. FYI, I was on the 690 that had the flat...Speaking of thank you to everyone that helped out w/ swapping it out....I learned my lesson on leaving spares and tools in the trailer back at the campsite.

    Shout out to Rich and the team for the best Polar Bear yet!!!

    The rain firmed up Ocala and the cold ....well....it's a Polar Bear Rally.

    Special thanks to our ride leader Nick he did a great job...and to Mark, Friday's sweep and Pete....I think....Saturday's sweep.

    This is...hands down, the best Dual Sport rally in Florida.
