    Looks like we might get a good ride together this weekend.

    I am open for either day. Several of you have not ridden the North East part of BW. Its very different from the Hutton area and other places south of HW4. Lots of challanging clay roads and water crossings.

    Its a high speed type ride.... there is some pavement involved. I have a very challanging 75 mile ride a think all will enjoy.

    If gas is an issue we can cut ride short.

    Let me know what day is best for all...

    Unlike Eglin lots of rain will make is sloppy.. but I dont see that as a problem this week...

    Enjoy all, stay safe.

    Just want to repeat what others here have said. Sent the shock from my KLR to Bob Riker for service this week, everyone was great to deal with, fast turnaround and at a reasonable price. What more could a KLR rider want?:thumb

    North Side of Karick Lake in the Day use area...


    I want to thank everyone for being considerate when we ride from Karick. Its a very quiet campground and revving your bike and running around in circles is not the way to go. Wait until we are all ready to leave and then fire up and head out. Plenty of time to warm up bikes before we hit trails...

    Froth... hope you can make it cause I really think you will like the ride...

    Come on out and join us....

    Im sure you have ridden most of this route anyway...

    BTW - Phil, Steve and Skid indicated early bail out... I am working on short route for any who wish for a shorter ride.

    No gas on route. Bring Snack food. Water of course.

    See you all in the morning.

    FYI - I call Mickeys and have them make me a breakfast sandwitch of bacon egg cheese let & tomato for $300 or so and eat it on way to Karick... they serve an awesome breakfast and lunch...850 537 2566 jus tin cast

    Guys, I was really wanting to do this ride since I have been out for a few weeks, but I don't think I am ready.:cry Chest is still too sore and noticed on a short street ride that my wrist is still limp. Oh wait, it was limp before the crash.:lol3 Never mind about the wrist.

    Anyway, I am going bag out on the ride tomorrow-- maybe Monday I will shoot out to Whiting or Mossy, for a ease back into the saddle ride...:D
