    Well MotorMike came over from Tally and we could muster up only 9 other people to ride with him.

    We had a Honda two Kaws a ATK a VORs a Husaburg and bunch of KTMs (sing like the 12 days of christmas).

    rode 66 miles of pretty good stuff if I so say so my self. Great bunch of guys. And of course NO INJURIES.

    Didnt take but two pics... here they are...

    I enjoyed the ride today Vic. Thanks for the envite. I found out that my new Trac-Master II front tire is not to my liking and will be gone before I ride that bike again. The unintentional dip in the stream crossing was brief but refreshing, and resulted in getting my drawers wet for the rest of the ride. The ride was really fun except for the rock roost shower from Steve and Wayne. When my hands started cramping up - I started making mistakes so I slowed down. I'm getting some of my strength back and hope to get a little better as time goes on. Can't wait until hunting season is over.

    Got to say a big thanks to all of you guys. Ride, weather, and people were top notch. Can't wait to do it again. Appreciate you guys allowing me to ride my old brick amongst your much faster (and lighter!) scoots. In all, I lost the handguard (thanks to my 2mph dump in the 4 foot deep sand on that second big section), my ghetto rigged fix for my fender bolt that broke the other day, and apparently I hit a root a little too hard on that last blast to the campground as the tube in my tire is officially KAPUT.

    All in all, hats off to you guys. Put me in my place for how fast I thought I was :clap

    Steve was wicked fast on that 690, even with a worn out rear tire and problematic shifter.

    So much orange!

    "The brick." :D

    Can't wait to do it again (hopefully with better suspension and rear brakes).

    Motomike - glad you enjoyed the ride and took a few pics. We are bad about not taking pics.

    Now you know why we call it a fast burn ride... I was not planning on that quick of a pace but everyone was right there all day so I streatched it out a little. You did amazing well as did Jay on the KLR...

    We hit most of the good stuff you can get to on a one tank ride...

    Secial thanks to Barney for running tail end and keeping us all together...

    I think this group of old farts has surprised a few other younger riders as well...


    The part I liked best about todays ride.... 10 riders 65 miles 0 injuries.

    Gotta love it..........

    Yeah Vic, I should have paid less for an incomplete bike. :rofl

    Thanks for leading a good, fast ride. No dust and great traction make for fun stuff. That single track Barney took us through was sweet. Definitely a BW must.

    Enjoyed the ride today, props to Jay for tossing his KLR around like a 125, gotta get a little quicker on my camera draw, don't see exotic Eyetalian bikes taking water naps in Blackwater everyday.

    Congrats on the new bikes Hatch and Rotor.

    As some of you might know, SingleTrackJeff is an AWESOME GUY! :freaky

    You might remember that a month or so ago, I posted here in the Pensacola thread asking if anyone could check out a WR250 for me that was for sale up there. I'm in St. Petersburg. Not only did Jeff volunteer, he met the seller, took a test ride, and provided me a verbal report! :deal

    Then, not only did he pick the bike up from the seller after I wired the money, he stored it in his garage for 3-4 weeks until I could get my ass up to P-cola! :clap

    AND ON TOP OF THAT, he graciously invited me into his home for his Christmas Party, and fed and boozed me up!

    Jeff, I don't have the words to thank you enough for your kindness and generosity! You are one of a kind, my friend, and SEMPER FI! :freaky

    Here's the bike finally home in my neck of the woods after 7.5 hours drive each way.

    All of those P-cola folks are pretty much top shelf, or something like that.

    Do you mind if I ask where you found this one listed? I have been looking for one forever; looking in craigslist, cycletrader and the like. Lucky lucky man..
