    We've talked about this for a while here. Tonight there will be a public meeting for locals to express their concerns about the military conducting training in Blackwater Rive State Forest.

    6PM Tonight at Bagdad Recreation Facility on School Street.

    They claim if they "aren't allowed to do this, the local area won't be able to sustain the continued growth of training here". :deal

    Man I understand move or get out of the way HOWEVER, on a small trail like that and I have fallen over or what ever and I'm trying to get my bike up or out of the way and some asshole pretty much runs me or my bike over. That dude is going to meet my fists and possible a boot or two.

    I get it and I would have probably done the same thing with less honks (no horn). I'm just saying if I was the dude getting ran over, I promise I would have something to say about (if I could walk that is). But I'm kind on a dick like that.

    Agreed!

    Total dick moves on both of them IMO. :rofl

    But, in the heat of the moment & for the amount of $ that was involved in the race, I can see why he ran over the d00d. :lol3

    Man I might have to take back my comments. I just realized that he/they had a RipIt sponsor. No wonder why he is/was a little crazy that stuff will jack u up. When deployed down range we would get the shit by the truck or aircraft full. Some times we would have shotgun contests. You would feel like conrholeo from Bevis and Butthead. Good times. :eek1

    Anyone here drive a Tacoma 2005+? I have a Bestop Supertop for a 6' bed I'm going to be listing in the classifieds. Figured I would give the local crowd first dibs. Can get pics on request.

    Video of what it is.

    Rucked UP - sorry but I am out this weekend or I would love to ride with you.
    Maybe a quick breakfast ride on Sunday on beasts. KTM parts are now on the way to FWB.:clap Hope to have it together next weekend.

    Big Dawg Video - we had this conversation three years ago. What most on this forum don't understand is the RACING MENTALITY. Sure it was for a trophy, and it was in the Dual Sport class -but it was still a race and I for one was always there to win. I understand what happened and if you have to place the blame on someone it was the guy on the little bike who would NOT move over. Surely he knew the fast guys from the next heat would be on his tail soon. And he was not run over but rather fell in the way. Enough said...again.

    In case you have not been outside it AFRICA hot!!!

    Daaang! All that for a trophy??? No $$$ involved???

    Fuck, I reckon if there's $$$ involved, fooker may have shot him to getdafukouttadaway. :2guns

    No comprendo... maybe I just ride for fun instead of the competitive aspect of it all. I'll never understand. :cry

    Eloy,

    You know whenever you get any competitive riders together (even for a fun ride) there's gonna be a race. Hare scrambles are full of incidents just like that. Looked to me like the guy was trying to ride over his head thinking he could beat the guy catching up. You know he heard the guy behind him.

    On another note, I'm on a sailing trip in the British Virgin Islands but will be in Lakeland the 20-21. Let's hook up and ride the VanFleet!:clap

    I might need to borrow one of your road bikes though. :freaky
