    Just thought I'd stop by and say hey, I'm new to the forum and I live in the Breeze, looking to put some dirt miles on my KTM 690 Enduro R after I finish the break-in. I ride with Hatch and some others on here but I'm always looking out for a good ride, feel free to get in touch with me about any local rides/events.

    Welcome to the madhouse.

    This is the place. If you can't find the kinda riding you like here you are in trouble.

    Hatch is a "Plank Holder" so he can give you the skinny.

    Also see Post #2 for info on meeting places etc.

    Glad you started posting. We have three or four 690 riders on here already.

    :lol3 makes sense

    yo boilsan, welcome to the asylum. glad you found the threads pertinent to the area, now it's time to ride! im not sure what a plank holder is, but youll find that Mr. Vico and a few others are kinda unofficial ride leaders/instigators - madhouse also does alot of the long street oriented ds riding you were interested in.. :thumb

    A "Plank Owner" is a Navy / Marinier term for an memeber of the crew assigned to the ship at it's point of commissioning. Thus, you were around when this thread was kicked off so...... you are a Plank Owner!

    Thanks for the concise explanation. I figured Pcola was a Navy town and all knew what a plank owner was... well now you do.

    At least the Navy guy knew!:clap:clap

    BTW I do not consider myself a plank owner.... too late posting. Mug, Inept, Hatch (now), Madhouse, are the real plank owners.

    I will bet riding is perfect right now at Eglin.... just can't go...

    Aye Mister,
    Tention to muster!
    A plank owner here sayin this place is where to get the scuttlebutt worth a damn.
    Now hear this:
    All you anchor clankers and crab crushers beware the polliwogs and shellbacks that infest this port.

    The smoking lamp is out.
    Left full rudder, all ahead standard.
    Put that plank back where you found it and no eating gedunks in the sack.
    And next time your caught pullin on your pud in the shower, it's captains mast for your candy ass. That excuse that "its your pud and you can wash it as fast as you want to" aint gone cut it mister.
    That is all.

    Attention on Deck! Attention on Deck! Battle Stations!

    Damn the torpedoes, full speed the fuck outta here!

    And the most remembered of all Navy sayings "Me so horney.... me love you long long time."

    Make your depth trivial, 10 posts down bubble, bearing nautical nonsense, at 15 knots.

    Glad to see you jumped right in with some serious posts. You notice we stick to strictly riding posts and never waver to side line discussions. :rofl

    But seriously we get crazy while waiting for the weekend when rides start to develop and then later the reports come in.

    Waiting to see what the weather does for this weekend before deciding where to ride.
