Ok, yes. I got it. I'll have to give you a call when I know for sure that I'll have time to roam afar. I might be able to go a ways this Sunday, but I'll have a better idea by Saturday evening.

Anyone riding this weekend? I've been trying to break through the Valkaria area out to Grant road and have been unsuccessful because of water. Thinking of trying again tomorrow morning, if anyone is up for an adventure let me know.

I'm up. Give me a call when you're getting up in the AM. Should I bring fins?

LOL, I was way past fins last time... more like mask and snorkel.

It's about 6:30 and I'll be heading out in a few minutes, just texted Kommando... if anyone else wants to meet up I'm going to try and be at the little breakfast place on Palm Bay road at 7:15-7:30, it's next to the Hobby Shop East of Babcock, not sure of the name.

Plan is to leave there, through the Malabar trails, then Valkaria trails to Grant Road, and then into those trails South of there, probably a pipe wish but if could get through to Micco Road would be great. Then accross Wabasso, hit Jungle trail and then back home via A1A. Try to look for us along the way if you can't meet for breakfast.

Cya

Sweet!

I still have to wire in one of my new 12V receptacles to power my margarita blender and 12" Plasma LCD on the trails, but I already have the thing mounted. I should be ready to ride/blend by Saturday.

Thanks!

Just picked up a used Tiger 800 XC so I'm good now for long distances on that, or local trails with the 250, or if I ever get these new tires installed (Bob), I might even be able to get the Tiger dirty.

I took the Tiger over to the West Coast this weekend, and stopped in at River Ranch for breakfast (great buffet). I was just looking at Google maps and there seem to be some cool looking gravel roads all around this area, might be a good hard pack type ride? Is that what you had in mind, or can you not do any kind of dirt?

Welcome, we need some new blood to get this little group going again.

I assume you talking to me since I'm the only one posting videos... lol

The 250 weighs in at a hefty 320 lbs!

Lot's of people complain about the weight when they look at the specs, but honestly once you get on it you'd be hard pressed to really say it's heavy. Almost seems light to me, especially after getting off the Tiger

The tank bag I use is the Joe Rocket Manta. It fits great on both bikes so I'm very happy with it.

Hurley you should come on over some time, but I gotta tell you if you are bored with Ocala we aren't going to have a whole lot to keep your interest over here!

We tend to have smaller areas that are more spread out. I'm up for some riding this weekend if anyone wants to go. I've been staying away from the Valkaria area because it tends to be under water with any rain at all, but hasn't been too bad lately so might be worth checking out.
