I am the KLR guy. I cant thank you folks enough for the fun and great ride. That was several firsts for me.
1st time camping, 1st time riding in the sand and off road. 1st time at a BMW rally. I met new friends and had a great time. The teamwork I saw was impressive. You know I will be back next year for sure...

GS Ride Video

Here are some random videos from what will surely be the last officially titled "GS Ride." Among the suggestions floated for a new name: "The Anything Goes Ride," "The Run What You Brung Ride," " The All Out Adventure Ride," and the frontrunner in my book, "The Smaller is Better Ride!"


The Lucky Contestants arrive.




The first victim was claimed 2 miles into the first dirt road. This became a recurring theme!





"Signs of Improvement!"








And then, depression set in...





KLR almost wins Tug O' War!!





Coming and Going





Bridge over the River Kwai (Get it?) This was the scene of more unpleasantness.





I'm afraid chronological order went out the window due to bulk uploading to Smugmug.





Sometime after lunch entering Ocala NF.





Now then!!








The faster traffic stayed in the left lane!!





Last one.





Another great ride with a bunch of great guys (and two girls!) Plus the fact that in spite of numerous "highlights" no one was injured or bikes seriously damaged made this one to remember.

Last two vids- I ride that part of the forest all the time. There is no reason for the group not to stay on the dirt/sand road. By making new roads you potentially give reason for the forest service to close the area off, much as they did at Delancy. Your skill will only improve if you ride it-

One, we didn't make a new road, it was well-trodden before we got there. Two, that particular ride had several guys on 1200's. You should try it on a 600lb. bike w/street tires sometime, your skill may improve also.

I have ridden that trail for years and the "new" road gets worse everytime riders go off the trails. As early as 4 months go the new part didn't exist.

I wouldn't be foolish enough to try and take a 1200 on street tires through there anymore than I would take an electroglide through there.

I have ridden ONF for two decades and have seen trail closures because of this same thing. Maybe the guys on street tires should ride said-

EDIT- Thank you guys for the ride report, I did enjoy watching the videos. I need to join you on your next ride

That'd be great. In the meantime, we're at Hurricane Wings in Mandarin on Wednesday nights, stop by for some bench racing if you get a chance.

Oh I know. Every time a 1098 comes up, I start drooling. Hard to say no, when I don't have to justify it to a wife.
