    It's south Florida...

    No one should want any service done to anything they own by any company down here.

    Sorry for your luck. While I tend to agree that the quality of service in South Florida is lacking For the most part, not every mechanic/company does shit work or is out to scam people.

    Sounds good, keep me posted. Glad to hear that the Tiger is working out fir you. If we get a ride together I don't mind showing you some off road techniques. Sand is a bit tricky but it's a must learn if you plan any riding other than improved roads in FL.

    I noticed this thread has been idle for a while but I'm hoping that some of you are still riding down here. I'm looking for riding buddies in the area. I split time between Miami and LA and currently have both my KTM 450 and My GSA here for the winter. I've been to the "humps" as they're called but nowhere else really dirty. Anybody want to ride big bikes in the dirt?

    I'm in and out of town for work quite a bit but I have a few weeks free coming up. Anybody familiar with the dirt want to show me around?

    Thanks!

    Hi,

    I have a KTM 990 and a KTM 300 XC. The 990 has been for the most part in San Francisco and later in Colorado. Florida, especially south Florida sucks for motorcycle riders. I love Miami and spend most of my time between the Keys (really bad for motorcycles), Miami and Gainesville (north Florida - somewhat better). I brought the 990 to Miami to clean her up and hopefully ride in the Yucatan next year. There is a ferry planned for next year (http://enjoycozumel.com/blog/). We have an association called Florida Trail Riders (http://www.floridatrailriders.org), which is really good. They organize almost every weekend Hare Scramble and Enduro races. This is the best way to ride off-road in Florida. I travel a lot for work and I am in North Florida until Jan 20th. Send me an email and let's hook one evening.
    Cheers,
    Gianni

    Never came across this thread before. Just getting back into the off road gig. I am on the Martin-PB county line a 1/2 mile west of rte 1.
    Road Corbett with a couple of members last weekend. New to deep sand and it was too much for the too recent plate in my clavicle but I am looking forward to trying again!

    You can ride there, but only in a few areas, here is an excerpt from the regulations manual. Luckily beater-ktm showed us the ropes so we didnt get any trouble from the fish cops.

    "Vehicles may only be operated on roads (Stumpers, Tomato Field, North and South Grades) and trail 6. Hunters are allowed additional vehicle access when participating in hunting activities as described in #3 and #4 below."

    Anthony here from Broward County and I ride a KLR I'd be interested in riding some trails in the SE Florida area. I have ties to the Vero Beach area and would like to do some off-roading up there also. I would be open to riding anywhere from Dade up to Brevard counties.

    I've got an old copy of the Florida Gazetteer if any of you want it. It's the 2009 edition I believe.
