Sunday is out, but any riding Monday through Wednesday?
google some trails and let's charge sunday a.m.
monday - weds...possible...I'll p.m.
Lemme know too.....
we found some killer trails around a lake off US 27...I'll let John post pics.
I wish I took some pics of the stuff around the lake, plenty of mud there but it looked like the deep mud was mostly avoidable as well. I want to bring the DRZ back there.
My friend had never been out adventure riding before, she had a good time riding on the back of the KLR and holding on for life and limb. Like I mentioned we went over for the Indy race in homestead on Sat, and I figured I would do some exploring on Sunday. We camped in my home made toy hauler Sat night at everglades holiday park - an interesting experience for sure (not the fanciest of places and I'm glad I brought earplugs, those peacocks are crazy loud at 5am.)
Since none of us knew the area that well, all we could do was search until we found places to ride. Unfortunately most of the levies have these little yellow gates blocking the entrances. We did find lots of gravel and rocky trails that I was having a good time exploring. I'll definitely take the KLR back to those sometime. We were out there a couple of hours and only explored maybe 5% of them.
After riding we stopped at the tiki hut biker hangout across the street from everglades holiday park and had a bite and a couple of cold ones. It was great meeting Eric and I hope I can meet more of you guys next time.
Here's a few pics, I'll post more later.
Cool to see some pics of my old stomping ground. The mosquitos at Holiday Park will drink all your blood and steal your beer. We used to go shooting out there off of Chrome Ave, they put a stop to that in the early 90s. You guys keep poking around and you may find some old limerock pits to ride in. I wasnt riding back then, but we used to shoot in them.
Kuntz! how are them ribs holdin up?
Oscar/Horatio, I won't know about Weds riding till weds. morning...where did you want to ride?
+1 on the skeeters!! They steal the beer straight out of your bloodstream...
There is an area on Krome south of US 41 where the painball guys have an area they use. As to finding things......A while back, I was riding with some other folks and we found an abandoned fishing rod, chair and cooler but no angler....We have no clue as to what happened, but there were a lot of 'gators in the area....:eek1
If that person slipped and fell in.....
eeickey, awhile back, did you get pulled over on prospect rd and powerline with a lady on the back. i recognize the bmw with the big dual headlights.
You South Fl. riders need to look @ what your state rep form Miami is doing.http://www.myfloridahouse.gov/SEctions/Bills/billsdetail.aspx?BillId=37239
yup. Is that your shop on prospect? The damn cop just wanted to see the bike. I was squiddin it that day...
Ok Jeff, so do we come up with a concerned letter informing them of the different types of bikes. Some of which are designed for a standing rider?
We can post You tube videos of the Dakar!
not to crap but racing and stunting like they do in dakar is exactly what they don't want on the streets
might be good to post the msf video on standing up when encountering debris
Post in the other thread.
eeickey, no definately not my shop, never even been in there. i work near there though.
If you've never been to Jimbo's in Virginia Key, then this Sunday would be a great day to check it out!
Sound like a blast maybe I can convince wifey to do that long of a day trip.
I got a couch, a hammock and waterfront tent space!
Did you see this one? Free beer
My daughter is comming down from NC so I can't make Jimbo's Sunday,
