    Wondering if there is anyone in the Miami area that has a caliper and 1/4" & 3/8" torque wrench?
    Just got down here from riding the TET all the way from NYC, and am planning on leaving the bike here till march.
    Going to fly back down with some tools to do major maint on my return, but was hoping to check my clutch plates and valves now so I could come prepared with all I need. Basically looking at a day of tear down to check things out.

    Had a kinda offer up in Melbourne FL for this stuff, but if I could find something closer, that would be ideal.

    Thanks guys!

    You couldn't have asked for better camping weather this weekend on the West Coast. Picture Perfect we had three great nights of camping, and days of hiking and canoeing. People catching Snook and Amber Jacks. Lots of kayaks and Paddle Boarders out. The Estero River was very interesting. Riding to and from was also great weather cooperated and temps. perfect for a ride across the Alley. :ricky

    I don't know how many of you rode this weekend but lots of bikes out Friday afternoon and this afternoon on US27...I headed north to Babson Park and did the Gobbler Ride with the DixieDualSport group.... we had lunch at Soloman's Castle. Great Ride, Food and People. Hope all of you had some good riding. If you are in the Frostproof area make sure and give sanjoh a ring. He will show you some great riding up that way. On and off road.....

    Get out and Ride everyone!:clap

    Just moved to Homestead, and was wondering about all the trails and roads out on Card Sound, any of you south florida guys spend much time out there? Is there a non-legal side to it? See alot of atvs and dirtbikes up and down the main roads heading toward some of the dirt and gravel out here.
