    Howdy All - Making plans to ride over to Motorcycle Enthusiasts to see Dean and then head over to Citrus Wildlife for a run around on the DRjr. I'll have no idea what I'm doing but I've checked the Management websites and as far as I can tell, I shouldn't be bothering any bright orange vests with guns. Should be a time!

    Is there anyone here on this thread in the Miami area? I am visiting for the summer (I know, very bad timing) with my DR650.

    uh.. hello? is this thing on?

    I'm in Daytona for the SX tomorrow night. Want to ride some in the morning. Are there any trails on the eastern side of Ocala I could look into? I'd planned on hitting up Pax MX but someone said Ocala is only 20 mins away - just not sure if the trails are also only 20 mins away. Help?

    For some reason this section doesn’t get a lot of traffic. You may have a better shot at getting a response at some of the other Florida-specific threads.

    I think the overwhelming answer to your question will be, yes. But, that’s about the best I can do. Ocala is one of the more abundant spots to be.

    I’m not schooled enough in Ocala lingo (I’m on the west coast; not that it matters) to point you in the right direction but I think there are plenty of folks out there that will help (I’m guessing.)

    Let us know how the riding goes!

    New to ADV riding and just got a 05 KLR 650. Wanted to see what is up in the west-central area of the state. I'm in Crystal River. Rode up in Goethe Forest last Sunday but don't know if that was even allowed, lol.

    Two schools of thought on that. One is ride only in designated areas. If unsure, stay out until you verify. The second is let er rip tater chip and post videos of the shenanigans and let people tell you if it is legal or not.

    Welcome to KLRista’ing.

    First real time on the 450 since the rotator surgery last january.

    Everything felt good, getting use to the atgat again.

    Getting ready for polar bear.

    I am going to be staying in Lakeland next 3 days. We have some time Saturday afternoon and Sunday after 10 it looks like. I'll be two up, so no gnarly off-road, but if anyone wants to show us around the area. Have to work some in Davenport, but up to putz around, especially Sunday.

    D00d, you're in my neck of the woods. I'd show you around but I'm doing family stuff this weekend.

    Check out this thread to see if anyone's riding... https://advrider.com/f/threads/tampa-bay-area-street-rides.1331736/page-4

    I checked and the second 3 day deer season is this weekend.

    It would have been an hour 45 minutes, but I think you would have had fun.

    Maybe some other weekend.

    I'm going to be taking little man camping this weekend to Ocala. First time with the bikes (kdx50 and a Grom) and am looking to stay at lake delancy west campground. What are the chances of getting a site if we roll in Friday night between 6-8 pm?
