    My first time on you guys had been around enough to have the Sweatfest 1 and Indigo, and set the traditions of posting pics and ride reports and posts only a few could decipher.

    We have grown and morphed and we are still here and still riding...

    VIC I think I am gonna do an early timberlake ride Monday at the crack of dawn. Just a real quick burn for a couple hours before the sun really comes up and dries out the sand to much. Any one who wants to come please post up.

    To all n00bs:

    There are generally three types of riding offered on the PAR thread. Hope you enjoy the area riding as much as we all do…

    1) ADV rides- slower paced (not slow but slower paced) rides through mostly Blackwater State Park and other area beyond. Bigger 650s 400s do well on these rides. For those wanting a good ride without running a race. Stops, pic opps, and eating are normally on the agenda. Rides are as long or short as folks want.
    2) FASTBURN – This is phrase I coined a while back to refer to a much faster paced ride through the tightest trails/jeep roads we can find. Most rides are through Eglin so permits are required. High skill levels are not required but highly recommended. The rides are usually in the morning and are over in 3 to 4 hours.
    3) Beasty Rides where the action is almost all street. Great rides through Fl, Al and beyond.

    YOU MUST HAVE A TAGGED AND STREET LEGAL BIKE FOR ALL RIDES

    Yeah.
    Street bike!

    Tell us agaIn - please!

    Easy enough, Tony.

    But after seeing Mad's really, REALLY nice DL650, I am a mixed bag. After having the 1000, his makes me drool, fool.

    Nice bike... the DL650 is. Tony has his juuuust right.

    What I should do is keep the XL600V on blocks.
