    Yeah I was sick... that's why I took the jeep out instead of the bike. I was following some tire tracks around for a while..... I figured it was you guys. I didn't get to the squares till around 1. On the way back I got lost in the old farm fields for about an hour.

    I'll probably ride this weekend. I'll also be out Thursday night if your going out.

    Tommy let me know what your plans are for tomorrow. I'm not sure if I'm going to ride it not.....I think I have a broken or fractured rib...went for X-ray yesterday afternoon. I tried to ride a harescramble track last night and couldn't even make a full lap.

    On a side not I might go to immokolee tonight.

    that is awesome!!!!! the trailer is kick ass! the trails you have up there look great.


    i can't wait to get back on the bike and in the trails. my chest is feeling a little better.... i couldn't take being away from the gym for so long so i went tonight....it hurt. i took the jeep out yesterday afternoon to east bonita... i was going to call you Tommy but it was pouring the whole time. cops and fire trucks were all over the place to.... kinda weird.

    i have my son all this weekend so i will have some rest time and i had better be good to go riding next weekend... i don't know how much more my jeep can take.

    here's a couple of pictures from yesterday, i won't bore you all with too many non motorcycle pics.

    Kyle that's awesome man. Dont think ive ever seen a bike pulling a bike. Sounds like your healing up good.. and Alex be careful out there. I got a warning a few weeks ago for trespassing even tho they weren't sure where the boundries were. they were told to give everyone they found warnings . I still ride out there but try to stay on named roads ;)

    Tommy I'd fight that asap. There has to be a reason for them to give you a trespass warning. I have one from out there to that I'm fighting..... not sure how they can justify giving a person a no trespass warning on a public street.

    Tommy are you coming out Thursday night?

    Alex, if they total the bike, you can buy it back from the insurance company, do the repairs and get the title "REBUILT". Not the end of the world.
    Is everything flooded down there with all the rain lately? I imagine the squares would be.

    I don't think I'll be able to tag it again if it gets a rebuilt title. If anything I'll buy it back and try to find a s model frame and just swap it in. I've been wanting to get my frame and swing arm powder coated anyways. Thing that sucks is I know I'll be bike less for months now.

    Sorry to hear all that, but you can register a rebuilt title, I have done it in FL on a ZX6.

    Cool, thanks for the info. Ill have to see what they offer.... or if its even totaled. I don't think ill be able to stay away from riding for a few months while the bike gets repaired or the ins company figures out what to pay. I might have to look for a bike to get me by in the meantime.

    Kyle I rode down there with steve 2 weeks ago and it was just wet enough to make the sugar sand easy riding. hopefully its not much wetter cause I'm gonna try to get down there this weekend..... and damn Alex thats a heck of a ride . I'm hesitant to say yes cause Ive already ate my new back tire up from goin without my car for the last 2 Weeks .
