Hey is anyone still meeting up to do some trail riding? I'm in the process of breaking in a new WR250R and looking for some good rides. I live in Melbourne, beach side. Weekends and anytime after 1-2 p.m. during the week work good for me. I noticed there are a lot of KLR riders on here. Great bikes, I had an old 87' as my first motorcycle. The 250 should be able to hang though!

I'm up this weekend. Did anybody have a few places in mind? I'm good for local or as far as the Smokies. I get home from work around 1700-1730 today, and just have to be back in Brevard by 0630 on Monday or I turn into a pumpkin.

My GF has an appointment in Cocoa Beach that ends at noon. We're planning to ride up to Daytona from there, if anybody wants to join us and possibly another rider. We're likely riding US1 up.

Hey everyone just read through the whole thread... was really cranking for awhile but seems to have slowed down a bit lately. I've got a new Honda CRF250L and have been exploring on my own for the last couple weeks. I live in Satellite Beach and so far have hit the compound and some 'private' land off Nova Road out off 520. I thought I was in heaven out there, as every gate was open and the place was amazing... until I got run off by someone in a pickup truck.

Anyway, got the bug now so looking to ride as much as possible... love the 'exploring new trails' aspect of Dual Sports riding.

Was thinking about Kempfer road off 192 this weekend, never been out there but it looks good on Google Maps, couldn't see any gates. Hit me up if anyone wants to go, or if you are going somewhere else and don't mind me tagging along that's fine too.

Nice pictures Sub, yea I'm up for going out there anytime... it's a nice ride for me to get there, up Tropical Trail and across the Causeway and I'm there :)

Like I said they chased me off the place I was at last weekend, they were nice about it but still. I guess Turkey season opens this weekend so going to be a lot of people with guns out.

This weekend I only have the morning of Saturday to ride but I'll be checking in this thread from now on, so hopefully we can get something going. Would love to see the WR250.

Depending on where you are off Nova, thats mostly Deseret Ranch land - and very private. A few years ago I aaproached the ranch land manager about a one-time permission for a group of dual sports to ride across on some dirt roads. He was nice about it and even though they were in the process of closing off access by the Florida Trail Hiking Assoc, folks he ran it by his boss. A polite NO.

Google up Deseret Ranch. Interesting outfit. Huge cattle producers.

I was on the north side of nova, towards the west. closer to 192. that area is owned by mostly Mormons. and some of it by a hunting club. in the Mormon land, i wasnt afraid to tear it up big time! hate those guys...

That's interesting stuff about Deseret Ranch, thanks. I looked them up on Google and see this...

"Owned by Farmland Reserve, Inc., an entity related to The Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-day Saints"

The guy in the pickup that I talked to said it was Mormon owned also. He said they pay $9000 a year to be able to hunt out there. I rode by a huge hunting camp, full of old trailers and a couple of those big swamp buggies. Looked mostly deserted when I went through on a Saturday morning. I asked the guy what I needed to do to get permission to ride out there, and he said anything without a steering wheel was expressly forbidden. I guess they have a 'thing' against bikes and atvs.
