    200 is a great bike for Croom, and there are a few of us that ride ONF regularly on smaller bikes, you are welcome to join us.
    I avoid anywhere that is having a quota hunt, other that that I just try to get started a bit later in the day so not to disturb the game during peak hours in the morning.
    I work on my bikes but have friends that speak highly of Central Florida Powersports, they are a KTM dealer.

    I have the next 2 weeks off and planning to hit up a few mx tracks and other spots while I have time. Looking at dade city mx, Waldo mx and hard rock again.
    Was wondering of anyone will be out and about.

    Going good today. Got a flat front tire 15 min into riding and the little Shop next to Croom is on lunch.
    So far I've fixed/wash/worked on the bike more then I've rode it. Doing well..

    I can get out and ride Friday. Was thinking about heading up to somewhere in the Ocala area for a few hours if I can find someone to ride with. I'm on a plated 250, not much of an MX rider. Send me a PM if you're interested.

    --Don't know about good shops.

    --Somewhat serious, there are lots of hunters out and they take it pretty seriously. If you look up the different WMAs online you can see what exactly their hunting seasons are and when there might be gaps, or one area might be better than another.

    --I am up for riding, do you have confirmed dates? I will be traveling a bit myself around the holiday but if I am in town I'd go for a ride. Hit me with a PM if you're interested.

    Planning on either croom or hard rock mx tomorrow. Going to fiddle with the supension some to see if I can dial it in.

    Also want to plan a ride sat with anyone who might be out. I've ridden a few times this week solo which is nice but it's always more fun I'm groups.

    I miss archery season, you never see those guys and they don't leave piles of garbage full of bullet holes.

    What time friday and where you coming from? If you want to ride the SE end I might be able to meet up with you.

    I'm pretty open, I'm coming from the Wesley Chapel area. What time would work best for you? I don't have a whole lot of experience with ONF so SE is as good as anything for me.

    A popular meeting spot is Ed Stone park on hwy 44 west Deland. I suggest 11am or later to give the hunters time to clear out.

    I can meet you out there if you want but I'm an old slow guy on an old slow bike. If you want to haul ass around you'll get bored waiting for me.

    Plans have changed, I have to be around here in the afternoon, Ocala will be too far for me tomorrow. Apologies for the late flake out. I've got a few days off in the next couple weeks, hopefully I can get up there.
