    The swelling is gone for the most part.:clap Next up is an MRI & surgery if torn.


    I'll be doing lots of DIY stuff around the house (laying tile, bathroom remodeling, window replacement, etc, etc, etc) that I've been putting off for a while. :lol3

    Hopefully you won't need surgery. Let us know how it turns out.

    Cocoa is about the lowest rung on the ladder.

    I would ride in Zero Gulch if you want someone to ride with, but remember I haven't gotten a smaller bike yet, so you might be helping me pick up my bike if we do deep sugar sand. :rofl Are you up for some weight lifting? :rofl

    You are welcome to try it, but a KLR is probably too big for what we do. We do have one KLR650 that follows us around occasionally, but he is a very seasoned rider.

    Stupid question - did somebody in a black pickup towing a toyhauler flip you off (I mean give you an ADV salute) on US1 a couple weeks ago?

    Great minds think alike. My feeling was that it was too big for a newbie and I am glad to hear you agree. I guess I will just have to wait. Don't want to kill myself on the second time out. :rofl

    :rofl I wasn't paying that much attention. I did see a black pickup with a toyhauler, but missed the salute. I had on a red and black jacket with a black helmet on an all black bike. So only you will know. :D

    Looks like hard pack :D How long a trail you got by your pad.....I was thinkin about adv'ing the klx up from Jupiter.....don't want to hook up the carrier to the Exploder. This Gultch is about an hour from Jupiter right? Not including a breakfast stop at the Ft Pierce waffle house.

    Probably an hour, depending on where you are in Jupiter. I used to run down to see my friends in Abacoa and it usually took me 45 minutes, but that was on I95.

    I am actually in south Indian River County between Ft Pierce and Vero.


    The loop I have mapped out behind the house is right at five miles, but there are more trails than just the loop I ride. There are other areas nearby as well.
