    yes Chess Master you are entirely right, this first ride was more challenging, your skill gets over board, and if you don't have them, you just harden the fuck up!,

    the last ride was easy, more oriented to get done by every rider, we talked about the sand over the brick road, that was the only deep adventure part i did encountered, ohhh i did learn how to change a tire in the middle of nowhere.

    working in the next video, from the DDS ride, will have it up soon

    for you all Wankers, piece out!

    Kubano Out!

    Cycle Gear was one of three fine sponsors which took an interest in our CADS ride.

    Here are the grand winners of the final drawing at the banquet. It should be noted Cycle Gear donated a full Explorer riding outfit. Helmet, Jacket and Pants.
    So three prizes were awarded.
    Cycle Gear said they would honor each winner with the option of the winners to just pay the balance of the Explorer package.
    This is seriously "cool beans".

    Carson, above pix was given a used helmet by a lady customer .

    [​IMG]

    Slimy aka Dave chose the helmet & took up Cycle Gears offer. Oh this is one happy rider.

    Here Bill found his hard to fit long arms right at home in his new Explorer Jacket.

    Here Carson & his chauffeur were eyeing the Explorer helmet but got the pants.

    Pond #6. Second day headed East. Carson w/ his impatient glare, as to say ride w/o your gloves, we are already dead last. It would be faster in pix taking.

    As previously reported Jim Bruce traveled from Massachusetts with his friend Pat to join us for a little ride through Florida on the Tran-Florida GS Rally. Jim bought a brand new Triumph Tiger 800XC for this trip and it preceded to eat not one, but two rear wheel bearings. The second failure destroyed the the wheel hub and swing arm, making his bike unrideable. Two wheel bearing failures in less than 400 miles???? :huh

    Update: Triumph promised him a new bike. Last week Triumph came through and replaced his broken bike with a brand new 2013 Tiger 800XC, plus some accessories to make up for the ruined vacation. I love a happy ending!! <label for="rb_iconid_24">[​IMG]</label>

    Pat is a friend of mine, & I rode down Sat morn to meet the two of them at the riders meeting. Hated to hear what happened to Jim, but I'm glad to hear the great resolution.

    Hey guys, here is the new Tiger sans crash bars. Backordered is what they told him.

    As Bill pointed out about about feeling like he was being chased by Germans with Wolfgang behind him, I'm gonna have to start calling Jim Captain Hiltz with that green Tiger. :lol3
