Believe I can safely say we won't be using that video as the new CADS recruiting tool. :huh
Did a little recon yesterday, may incoporate some of this into a future Trans-Fla. ride, who knows. Big bikes would definitely rule in here.
Sign me up for some of that!
Says the guy with the XT in the pics.
Saw that one coming before I finished typing it.
Hey, recon is like Forest sez, 'ya never what yer gonna get'. I used to do it on the 1150 Adv. back when I could lift it out of a foot of sand and it was a bad idea then.
I remember a day like that.
Oh, & I'm about ready to arm wrestle Matt for the rights to his DR. It's been in my garage for the better part of a year, I put a new rear tire on it, a new battery, & half the work of replacing a toasted starter Saturday afternoon. I feel entitled.
I could be back.
Well see, you're bigger than me, that's why I chose to ride this, plus I knew where we were going.
edit, just ride it, possession is 9/10 of the law.
Yeah, I learned a lot about you that day.
Where: Hurricane Wings Julington Creek. :dg
When: Wednesday, May 8th @ 7pm
I'll be there tonight if I can make time. Look forward to some trail riding. I've had this bike for about a week and half now and have not seen dirt yet. I did do an A1A ride to Ormond Beach and back to N. Jax yesterday. If I can get the lights working on my XL350, I'll be riding it tonight.
I look forward to meeting yall.
Sounds good Bill, we'll be outside on the porch. Look forward to seeing the XL too, not too many of those still running around. But either way, try to make it, we'll at least point you toward some good riding areas.
Bill, can you give a general vicinity for some of the above, so i can dink around w/ Google Earth?
This stuff is right up my alley, CADS. On my next Gainesville run i'll have to set aside some ride time to find some of this good stuff
I did as much of the Bellamy Road as i could find back in 2006-- finding the oldest dirt/brick tracks possible is one of my favorite things to do on a bike.
Happy trails, CADS
I'll tell you exactly where it is, in a PM And some other stuff just like it that's closer to G'ville. Working on a new Trans-Fla. route and don't want to give it away just yet. I like old historical roads too, it took me a few years to tie all the Old Bellamy fragments together from St. A. to Ichetucknee and that's as far as I've gotten, if you've got anything west of there I'd like to know about it. There was an old Jacksonville to Tallahassee road and parts of it still exist but our tax dollars are busily paving it and others, plus there's the old brick stuff in East Palatka, but they run thru cabbage farms so they're probably ok.
Thanks Bill! PM sent
Wish i were there tonight!
Me too! Just pick the every other weekend i'm off...
Note to self....
Keep the old XL350 at home at night!!!!!!!
Southside to Northside on 295 in dark with a head light less bright than my Iphone, and not tail/brake lights at 75mph. I was never soo glad to see the back of a semi trailer!
Had a good time. Hope to ride with everyone soon.
How bout this Sat.? Some of us are thinking about it, it'd be an all day affair. If there's enough interest we'd leave Salt Springs at 11 and return about 5:30, mid or big bike recommended, there's a good bit of ground to cover.
Everybody welcome, who's in?
edit: Hey Bill, good to meet ya, where'd yer muffler go, we about died laughing when you left : ) Glad you made it home!
Well, I did get the carb tuned in a little better....
