    Hmm, may make that 4am wake up and trip. Put a whopping 7.1 hours on the bike in 6 months...

    Hey Sand Fleas! I'm looking for a Sand Fleas Sticker! It looks like this: IMG_0302.JPG Anybody know where I can purchase some?

    I'm a Florida Native rider and definitely ride the sandy stuff!

    My son and I are rookies. We have a DRZ400S and a KLX250S. We are looking for some mellow trail rides. DRZ is use mostly on road and has 80/20 tires, the KLX has 50/50 tires. We live near Orlando and are looking for someplace to ride to, ride around a bit and ride home. Thinking Ocala. Have heard about Croom, but that might be a bit advanced/aggressive for us. Just looking to tip toe into the land of loose surfaces and see what's up.

    I'm new to the area and live in Davenport right by the 27/4 corridor and took a ride up to Richloam last Sat and it looks to have some fairly mellow dirt roads to explore which might be right up your alley. I was on my Triumph street twin totally stock with street tires and there was dirt roads it could handle so you may want to google map that area and take a spin up and check it out. I believe it was rte50 & clay sink rd?? If you ever want to ride up sometime hit me up and we can try to hook up. I took mostly back road single lane highway up from here so was a decent low key ride up.

    There is an area off of I-drive that sounds like a good place for you guys to dabble at.

    Sounds like your talking about the area locals call witches swamp behind sea world. There are some decent places to ride out there but be careful,lots of four wheelers running around in all directions.

    Head to the Tosohatchee Wildlife Management Area in Christmas, FL. Excellent dirt roads to get started with. Cost is $3 to get in, and it's a WMA so not really 'unlimited' trail riding. No quads. Must be street-licensed. You can wind your way to the St. John's River for nice views. Nice riding, particularly with the tires on the DRZ.

    It's on the east side of Orlando, Rt 50, 1/2 way to Titusville. If you need a guide, let me know. I ride a KLX300 and would be happy to meet up.
