    Hello everybody, I'm new to ADV, as well as dual sporters I guess, but been riding motorcycles pretty much all my life. Wondering if there is anyone in the are that knows of places to ride? I have a KLX 650 on 50/50 tires, so sand is a challenge but I manage it anyway.

    I am in the Port St Lucie/Ft Pierce area and looking for people to ride with. I was thinking about heading up to Sebastian Inlet State Park one of these weekends for a camping trip. If you are interested, let me know. Maybe we could get a group together. Anyone else out there want to join in??

    Also, I have a KLR with 50/50 tires too so anyplace we could do some offroading would be great.

    I'm in PSL. I ride a BMW X-challenge (with Pirelli Scorpians). I've been trying to get out for a decent weekend ride for a while now. I ride ~450 miles a week to and from work but hardly ever get out on the weekends; go figure. Let me know if ya'll would like to get together for a ride.

    I'm in the middle of a valve job and installing the dial a jet, but I'm going to duck out of work early tomorrow to get some work done on it. Might be ready for this weekend if I'm lucky.

    What is the compound? I have a bald rear tire right now, but a brand new T63 sitting in my room ready to install. Just trying to get the last few street miles out of it until I have an off road ride coming up worthy of making the switch for.

    Careful out there folks, the compound was shut down a few years ago due to the number of people who abused a good thing...drag racing for money, drugs, and a rather horrific amount of serious accidents/crashes..... we flew out over 35 people in one year when I worked in that area at the height of it's popularity. The city police strictly enforce that area now, and unless you are well off the beaten path, you're going to get cited.
