    Hi All! It was definitely fun riding with you guys in The Squares this past Saturday. Not sure if it was fun or not plowing my heavy KLR through the sugar sand though! I really thought the D606's would do better than that. It was a workout, cant wait to do it again!

    I switched out everything to street mode for this weekend. I'm doing the American Legends Motorcycle Rally this weekend. It's 1000 miles in 24 hours for cash prizes. Should be interesting to see all the full dress cruiser and Goldwing guys faces when I pull up! I know something they don't though. My bike gets nearly double the MPG than they do and I've already been cross country on this machine including a 1000 mile day.

    Next weekend, I'll see you all at Dania. Looking forward to those old bikes and vendor area again. Last year I picked up a book by Carlos Caggiani that outlined his travels on a motorcycle trip around the world from South America. Awesome read!

    Anyone near wpb able to help me sort out a ktm 625?

    The valves sound way off from the knocking noise it's making. Not sure if there is anything more to it. Other than my gratitude I can repay with beer, liquor, wings, pizza....tacos al carbon???

    Just want help from someone with the right tools and knowledge.

    Plan to leave my house around 1100 on Saturday and head up to Dade Corners and meet anyone else there. Ride west out Tamiami and take a run out Loop Road, then back to Oasis if a bathroom break needed, then up Turner River Road, over to Wagon Wheel, then 29 south to Everglades City. Meet up with the big group at about 4 pm. Going 2 up with the wife and another rider with his wife will be with us also.

    PM.....for details/phone number if interested.

    Sounds like it will be a good one. I would join if I didn't mess up my back at work.




    I am down for a road ride if anyone wants to get out and enjoy the weather tomorrow. :freaky

    Maybe in two weeks Tommy and I will come over that way with the big bikes with street tires for a street ride. My 1150RT never gets ridden anymore!

    Hey you. I was thinking about heading north to Label or possibly around the lake or even up to Lake Placid but honestly I just want to get out and enjoy today's weather. :D If we do go north I can meet you at casa Sanders or in your area.
