    Howdy fellow Sandbox dwellers,

    Looking for a place to unload my bike and leave my truck for a couple of weeks while I do a loop of FL, GA, SC, NC, TN and AL. I'll be leaving on the morning of the 10th or 11th of October and will be gone for 14-18 days.

    Anything north of Lake Placid to south of Zephyrhills would work.

    I know it's short notice but anyone with such a place that could help out a fellow inmate would have my unwavering gratitude. Also if you're cool with a spirited off road/ off pavement pace and are comfortable in sugar sand then you are more than welcome to tag along with me for a couple of days, campfire drinks on me!

    Thanks in advance,

    Dave

    You are welcome to park at my place. Although the "road" is a bit sketchy with minimal rain in the last few weeks.

    Man that would be awesome! It would cut 500 miles of mostly slab on my knobbly tires ! May just show up to your casa in NC with a bottle o' whiskey in hand for that one. :D

    You're all awesome to be so generous. Sanjoh's house is right on my route so I'm going to take him up on his offer to park there.


    Thank you all for offering up a spot!

    Any of you going to Polar Bear, come see me at site 68.

    Damn Dave

    Sorry I missed this. I have plenty of parking up at my place.

    Got a realtors lock on the gate. You could park there even if I am gone.

    Haha. Dave I don't even like when a little bit of sand get's on the paved road I am riding!!!

    Just kidding. Dirt riding looks like fun. I just didn't grow up riding dirt. Might be a little late to start at 61. I don't bounce so good anymore.

    I am always up for a street ride.

    I know you ride street to get to dirt, but I thought your real street riding was done when you sold the FZ-07.
    Didn't know you had that one.
    Nice. I love the blue on the black.
