    I was in Fayetteville. Feels good to be back in Florida. Can't wait to start putting around.

    Hey guys,

    Just thought I'd let you ya'll know I'm selling a 2005 drz400s or looking to trade it for a smaller bike that'll fit me better.

    The drz is just to much bike for me regrettably, I'm up for trading up/down for a 250.

    If you or anyone in the P'cola area know of anyone interested here is the link:

    Thanks for looking, hope to meet with you guys someday soon!

    Sounds like you might be part to the Special Forces group?

    LOTS of good riding around here and we do a lot of it (that post count contains mostly riding plans/comments and very little chuckheadary.... not that theres anything wrong with that!)...

    Anyway, get your Eglin permit and a Blackwater map and you are set...

    Eglin permits are issued from Jackson Guard on HWY 85 in Niceville Fl. Cost 12 per year. You must have one to ride the Eglin Reservation with us...

    Blackwater requires no permit and if you are in PACE you are very close to all that action.

    The Evergreen Rotary Club is doing it's second ride this weekend, the 17th. The setup is similar to last year w/ a short safety briefing, couple of hours of riding local back roads (w/ a stop about halfway) and lunch at the end.

    PM me for details if interested. Registration is only $25 and it goes to local projects. Ride leaves at 0930.

    Captain Cheaha,
    Sry for delay/lag in response, for one of our "fearless leader" of dualin, pegs are yours @ inept's customary "NO FEE". Needed to climb up in loft in shop to find them & also found George Carlin's "too much stuff". Pegs are DRZ400E model which are better/wider than rubber removed "S" model pegs. Will throw them in my truck in case you are in FiveFlagsSpdwy area or near NAS P'cola (Bayou Stinko bridge) M-F/ 8-5.
    Got you & "guitarmy21b" covered on breakable scoot parts, appears I have DRZ brake pedal, gearshift lever, frt & rear brake master cylinders w/hoses, yellow fenders, plastic rear disc gaurd (worthless but free) in case you peel your stocker off swingarm,among other parts left over from DRZ E ownership/farklin.
    Thanks for response "guitarmy21b" , I see your in niceville so getting your beast in shop could be distance challenged.
    I'd be glad to let you ride my slghtly modified(farkel'd) beast next time we can meet-up for a VicO EAFB ride.
    Pleasure would be mine to show what's possible with the BRP couzin. Mainly a Al Baker's silencer, modify/re-jet that CV (constant velocity) carb (really needs a XR650R carb) & lose alot of that steering head weight ( different speedo, headlight, etc )
    Got to give you persevere points for riding w/tire handicap, L model can be a handful for a lightweight like I ( 150Lbs. 1/2 the machine weight) Don't let anyone put that beast down, dependable, ease of maintenance & my choice on majority dual sport rides.
    Sounds like you got a good tire tip for sand/off-road but if they don't take the tarmak wear well, you can try Kenda 270 on rear & 760 on frt. Kenda's are inexpensive & both are DOT legal in case you come across "deputy donut" like I do occasionally over here in Escambia. They see high fenders & knobbies feel the need to chase me down/pull me over so I can point out DOT # on rear 760 Trakmaster, Dohpe!!!

    What's up everyone??!! Back from the ST/MX digression and ready for some WFO throttle trails again!! I'm down for some BW riding this weekend if anyone else is, since my lazy ass hasn't made it to the Guard to get my pass renewal....I know Vic posted up and Rotorhead will be avail and possibly JP, so let's do it!

    As for the new guys in the Pace/Pensacola area, I'm in Pace and the closest place that we have to riding trails for us is Blackwater (no pass required, about 45-50 mins away) and Brox (pass required and slowly diminishing, about 25 mins). If you guys have any questions, let me know.

    I'm good for either day, however it works for the masses! My one tank is good for about 65 miles before I hit reserve....BW from Karick sounds great!

    I have no idea of where all this occurs at Balckwater. Barney, do they hunt where we ride?

    If everyone wants to go Sunday thats fine with me.

    I have a party to go to Saturday night so who knows about Sunday kinda iffy...
