We have all seen the KLR swim and is anything but graceful but it likes to wheelie I must give it that
That is what landed me here after all. Can you find the 400lbs Bike? Me neither it took a while.

I'll bring some cock (wings) for Fri night. Cook em on the Egg @ Castle Cole and just warm em up on the big grill as an app.

Plan on some free morning ADV java as well.

Let me clarify... I don't mind going through a few puddles here and there but... if you're planning on going across Ocean Pond, I think I'll opt out.

I'm with this guy. I haven't had the XR6 wet too much before, so this will be a first for me, and probably it (came from Colorado, not too much water out theres).

Looking good

We did a quick scouting run into Osceola

Trails are great, very little mud. Most of what we came across was dried up.

However, large areas of fire which still had some smoldering spots...







Out of the burned out areas, it all looked mostly like this..



Of course if you look hard enough you can find some water, but not depth some were looking for



Looks like it will be one of the better weekends for Osceola.
