PAR....Pensacola Arachnophobic Riders
Sounds like a great plan, I would be happy to man a check, as Tony said with some help
Covered around 65 miles of Black Water this morning with ThumperNoob and SR56. We ran everything from wide roads to "SPIDER" track...I mean single track. Saw a few deer, turkeys and some rabbits along the way. We ran thru some new to me territory, I really enjoy exploring the forest!
One of those out of the way ponds.
Stopped by the old house.

SR56 keeping his feet dry.
It was a great day riding with the PAR's! Let's Do It AGAIN!!
ThumperNoob and Twisted Chain did a great job leading us around Blackwater this morning. When we rolled at 7:00 it felt pretty good...by about 9:00 it was OK if you were moving but if you stopped it got hot quick. All in all a good day and the best part is I can say I didn't crash for the first time in a while .
Converted the WR Motard back to D/S for some nice mixed surface riding in NY & NJ. Rode with 2 old buddies today. Too bad Inept wasn't with us - we could have had the Full Rainbow of Japanese D/S.
If there is any interest for the "Time Keepers Mini Enduro" I think we can set one up fairly easy.
Routes by GPS or even Roll Charts to make it old timer friendly. All checks would be secret and easy to reach. The focus is on seeing Blackwater without being EARLY to a check. Remember you wont know where the checks are so you must ride the pace at all times. We would need check point operators or devise some type of honor system (not sure there is any honor among racers).
We could do this for the upcoming Trot... Is there any interest?
I will post there also.
What is better than wet sand?
Doing doughnuts in wet sand!!!
I got to ride with the "BIG Dawgs" today! They waited on me :) It was GREAT to be on the 250 again! I needed the attitude adjustment. The weather was great! The rain kept us cool most of the ride. Great ride except for a hole I found all of studden,,, front wheel went right in it! Thank God for my Chest protector!
Thank you guys for letting me ride with you all!
Every one of them a Big Dog!!
Im back on this side of the earth. Just got the bike back into shape and went out on sat and sun around eglin to get my "sand legs" back underneath me. My neighbor, Jason went on sat and OG joined us on sun.
Saturday was great, sand was mid packed from the rain with zero dust. Sunday we delayed about 20 mins for the thunderstorms to pass. The skies were supposed to clear after that... well.....they didnt and it spit on us pretty much all day, but that was actually a good thing, we were wet for sure but NEVER hot. Riding in the AC was OG's statement. It did stop raining for about 30mins so that is the picture below.
Looking forward to riding with you guys.
Glad yer back and all good.. Look forward to seeing ya soon (riding and at the YOBB). Hey, gotta ask, is that a new helmet? wrap? inquiring minds want to know. Peace, out
My best friend from back home got me these. One for everyday riding and the other was my "bday/retirement" gift....belated Thats for the street rides.
They are pretty cool. U can design anything u want. I think around the $30 mark. Easy on and off, wash when they get dirty. Tons of ready made designs as well.
Was your head in the helmet when it got shot?
That would explain a lot.
Glad to have you back.

I'm considering camping for a few days at Blackwater and preriding the Enduro.
Anyone want to join me for EARLY ride Wed morning or maybe even late tomorrow.
Not sure where Im staying just yet. I will NOT be at the Landing.
This will be more a WORKING ride and not a regular ride.
Madhouse where's the new bike ? We need pic. Still liking it up here in NC, but every one here always saying ( IT SURE IS HOT ) I'm like ( IT"S ONLY 90 DEG. THAT'S NOT HOT. ) but am finely getting AC in my restaurant Thursday.
