    Good ride today with Rotorhead, Gimmee, SR56, Vico1, Freebornman, Rusty Jug. Got to ride some trails I've never seen before. RH, FBM and Gimmee did great job of leading. Thanks guys.

    Hey SR56, is your handlebar OK? You gonna make Karick tomorrow?

    Well I think RJ found out what we mean by DEEP SAND!:evil

    We all feel your pain as we have all had to learn the ways of the sand...

    Here is a quick vid of today. Nothing fancy.

    Show to the family to prove you actually did ride dirt bikes in Florida!

    Always good to get out. Good to have FBM with us for a change.:clap:clap:clap

    Thanks Vic for video!
    Did a great job of deleting the fetal position of me!
    You really have to learn mind games in the sand, way harder then I realized and you guys did a great job of not getting me in the real sand! I stayed in the kiddy sand box!
    :)
    I'm not afraid to say " if it was just me getting into the sand trail, I would have turned back and loaded the bike up!

    But Vic took me under his wing and made this sand noob feel like king!
    He knew the sand monster would chew me up and spit me out!

    Big big thanks to Vic the night before on getting my front flat tire he educated me again on changing a tire. Bruce was prepared to change it Sunday morning!

    Thanks again to all you guys for immersing me in the sand world!

    Still not for sure if you sand guys have all your screws tight!
    This sand stuff might take some weight off my fat gut!

    The lazy river pool made my afternoon a lot easier! With refreshing drinks!
    :)
    Looking forward to Monday!

    Good day riders,
    Thanks for all the videos, they help somewhat fill a void for my absence from riding. I need to beg/borrow or rent the tool to remove/install pin from timing chain link on KTM and probably other makes of engines.
    Would greatly appreciate a PM or shout back from any rider who can rent or loan me this press tool rather than order online as my workplace Snap-On & MAC tool men does'nt show anything in their tool books to order.
    Hoping there is a pumpkin rider out there who's been there & knows of similar tool that will do the job vs KTM's $120 pin tool, Oucher!.
    I also had a gent contact me with a beast (XR650L) that was wanting to ride so I pointed him to this website/forum to hook-up with you guys,a fellow named Jon. Has he joined ya'll yet on a ride? Just curious.
    Appreciate you guys once again,
    JohnnyP

    Sure enjoyed the ride with you fellers today

    Since there ain't any pics of me flailing around in that mudhole after dumpin my bike in it, we'll just pretend that didn't happen:wink:

    I carried a few pounds of mud back home with me tho

    Gimmee, I saw those wheelies and I'm reportin yer ass to Swampy, mister

    He won't stand for it

    Won't sit for it either

    Today was a fun ride! Like back at home! :)
    Enjoyed the fast pace through the roads and at least I could showed you guys I could ride better than the day before! :)
    I still hate sand well 6 inch or deeper! Give me a few more rides I might get into the sand grove like the black water grove!
    Still amazed about the Black River, may take the family up and show it to them in the real!

    I'm going to miss the fun rides in black water!! :(

    It was great meeting people in person, I'm just sad you saw me in the fetal stage at Broxson (sp) but I made up for it at Black Water! :) again that place is fun! I would be out there every weekend until my wife shut me done!!

    I'm hoping to get Thursday morning in for a short ride!
    But need to make the boss happy with beach day, shopping day etc!! Lol

    Not for sure if KTMs are made for the woods after Vic's blinkers are broke! Lol!
