    I'm planning to ride up to Clayton, GA for the Terra Firma 2012 ride. For more info, see the thread in the Sandbox Forum, as well as the thread in the Southeast Forum.

    I'm leaving Friday after work and coming home on Sunday. I'm going to try to leave work right after lunch, so I can be in Clayton around 10PM. Then I can get a good night of sleep and ride all day Saturday, camp there Saturday night, and ride home on Sunday. Friday will be mostly slab flying on the way up. Sunday, I may take state hwys coming back, if I leave early enough.

    There are also some riders from Central FL going up. Some of them are going up Thursday or early Friday.

    'Anybody wanna go ride NE Georgia?

    Hey! Any of you guys drive a silverish Corolla with a Dixie Dual Sporting decal on the back glass?

    I was in traffic (in my cage) with said car this afternoon eastbound on 520 through Cocoa and into Merritt Island. Didn't see an ADV sticker on the car and didn't line up at the red lights close enough to say Hi.

    Hello all, I am new to this forum but not to Dualsporting.
    Like to ride my KLR in the Merritt island wildlife refuge trails in Titusville but also want to meet and ride with others in the area. I've had the KLR since new in 98, its mounted with aggressive MT21 tires so its fun off road. Would like to check out the other off road places in central / east Florida. I also have a Super Tenere XT1200 I like to keep mostly on the street. Is anyone riding this weekend?

    Hey! When/where are you guys going to meet up? I plan to get up (early for me) to watch MotoGP from 0800 - 0900.

    I need an excuse to get out and do some riding. And meeting new friends ain't half bad either.

    Sorry I missed your post (and IM). CadCamMonkey bailed at the last minute and I went by myself.

    No problem... I missed the cue in the post to email directly.

    However, I'm proud to say I did get up in plenty of time to watch the MotoGP final round. :D And that's something for me on a Sunday morning.

    Maybe next time. I'm still balancing my tasks between getting a sailboat that I bought back around June in the water, keeping up on Jeep maintenance, and catching up on the R80 maintenance as soon as the new battery arrives this week. And in a few hundred miles, the F 650 will be due for the major service interval. I'm beginning to think I have more old toys than time to maintain & use. But older is gooder to me. :D

    Hey is anyone still meeting up to do some trail riding? I'm in the process of breaking in a new WR250R and looking for some good rides. I live in Melbourne, beach side. Weekends and anytime after 1-2 p.m. during the week work good for me. I noticed there are a lot of KLR riders on here. Great bikes, I had an old 87' as my first motorcycle. The 250 should be able to hang though!:D

    My GF has an appointment in Cocoa Beach that ends at noon. We're planning to ride up to Daytona from there, if anybody wants to join us and possibly another rider. We're likely riding US1 up.

    Hey everyone just read through the whole thread... was really cranking for awhile but seems to have slowed down a bit lately. I've got a new Honda CRF250L and have been exploring on my own for the last couple weeks. I live in Satellite Beach and so far have hit the compound and some 'private' land off Nova Road out off 520. I thought I was in heaven out there, as every gate was open and the place was amazing... until I got run off by someone in a pickup truck.

    Anyway, got the bug now so looking to ride as much as possible... love the 'exploring new trails' aspect of Dual Sports riding.

    Was thinking about Kempfer road off 192 this weekend, never been out there but it looks good on Google Maps, couldn't see any gates. Hit me up if anyone wants to go, or if you are going somewhere else and don't mind me tagging along that's fine too.
