    Good riding with you on Saturday Cutty. Which bike were you? Were you the first one to go down? How are you feeling?

    Brian here on the DRZ 400. We only had one go down on the "D" group, and he is OK.

    Another PB missed, but not by choice. Even if I had gotten the bike started & loaded I wouldn't have made it. Woke up at 2am Sat & only hoped that I would make it to the john. This went on till about 10. So the rest of the weekend was spent on the couch trying recoup some form of human existence. And I figured that since I couldn't be out in the glorious & warm Florida sunshine with you FF's Sat, I'd do the next best thing...I watched The Great Escape for the umpteenth time. I bet I lost more weight this weekend than you did. :D

    Dagum Danny sorry to hear, one of these years you'll make it. Rich Heritage filled in for you on the Alex B ride and did a great job. :thumb

    No sweat Sean it was Day13 and me, I got a little road rash on one hand but no biggie. Next time when we get you going a few miles per hour pop it in first at idle, not 4000rpms..makes it a lot smoother for everyone. Dave said your wheelie was great. :D

    That was the morning group of ten. Five of us went back into the trails after lunch. We had two more in the afternoon. I was one of them. The pic of Kaosrider doesn't count that was just a turn around while he gave us great instruction. But he did take a little friendly harassment.

    Hawk,I stopped at that spot early in the day; interesting grove of oaks amidst all those long leaf pine. Maybe you saw my tracks.

    Really appreciate it. Was about to call my wife, who was hiking for another 3 hours. Put olive oil into clutch and it worked right away. Hope you were able to ride Ocala.
