It was nice meeting everyone yesterday. I had no idea that there were this many ADV types in FL.

Next time I won't tell any ridin' stories when I am dehydrated....Apparently there is a big difference between "fixed" and "changed"!!

Its great to see you guys Saturday as well. I would have stuck around and rode some more but I didn't get home from Jeepin the night before until about 3 am. I was pretty hungry to so Kyle and I went and got some lunch.

There is quite a few of us that ride over here. Hopefully Tommy is in between bikes and then there is about 4 or five more that didn't come with us.

For some reason I thought the lunch ride to Everglades city was this weekend, I'm going to try and make it in two weeks for that.

I didn't take ma y photos Saturday, here's two.

I had a blast Saturday! Got to test my new tires, and had fun with friends doing the test! Too bad Erman had the flat tire. It was good for me too, Alex, cutting the day short. I felt I was pressing my luck with that big bike in the mud. I'm ready to go do it again!

Im really surprised you stayed up in all that mud, that was some good riding on your part for sure.

I need to get that rear tire off my bike before I hurt myself.

Mahbe in two weeks we can ride through there again on our way to lunch in everglades city.

I need to rent 3 pieces off road bikes in Orlando - Ocala Fl area in the period from March 6 to 13. Looks like Eagle Ride only HD bikes in this period due to Daytona bike week.

Is there anyone out there who can give me tips on how you can rent bikes.

I'm missing the xr already. Hate missing those rides in this perfect weather. I'm having trouble finding a decent job. Been thru a couple lately with bad results and been getting just enough side work to pay bills. Hopefully I can get busy enough to grab something to ride soon.. thanx for posting the pics. Looks like a fun day.

Sorry to hear you're having a hard time finding work Tommy. I know it's hard out there. My work has been dead. I want to change fields but there isn't much out there. Goodluck, I'll keep an eye out for you.

Tommy, in two weeks I'd like you to go with us on the ride to Everglades City. Come by here and pick up my DRZ early and we'll scoot out to meet Alex and hook up with everyone in Clewiston. Should be a fun day!

Man that sounds like fun and I appreciate the offer Kyle, I have the worst luck with other peoples stuff and can't afford to fix it if i break it so im gonna hafta say thanx Kyle but Il decline. Besides I'm really hard on stuff.. ask me sometime bout sinking the inlaws land cruiser in 6 ft of water then a few months later dropping the same inlaws aqua sport boat at the top of the boat ramp instead of in the water, it still slid into the water but not undamaged lol.

Tommy, it's got full coverage on it and it's just a motorcycle. (Replaceable) Friends are not!

I may join for lunch after the Dania Classic MC show. After the 300+ miles I did on the KLX last weekend I am NOT going to be riding the slab on that thing for a while!.
