Nice video Vic!
This was my ride partner yesterday, a little bit of sand :) My daughter is going to be a better sand rider than Dad!

He's complaining its eating plugs. 16 Splitfires are expensive but in the grand scheme of things he owns a KLR.

Ride Video

A very quick video to prove we went riding.

Perfect day in Blackwater.

Great breakfast at Mickeys and then sploring up into Alabama and over towards the west. Had my low gas light come on for the first time... long ride.

No gas no civilization out there.

I highly recommend you always have full tanks and riding buddies when you venture out.

BTW the hunters were out pretty good. You gotta be careful of "Radio Dogs" out there.

Yes that two days straight of riding... Same as last weekend.

LOL! Doesn't take much to be better than me at the Brox!

She is steady eddy in the sand! ;)

I loved Blackwater so much, I'm not sure if I can go back to Brox! :)

Actually looking forward to heading back to see how I do at the Brox after finding some sand legs on the second day, ;)

When she gets faster than most of the boys, then she will want to wait until after the ride before she lets them know who she is a girl.

A shot of Mr.Barber and me last year.




Our group had a nice chat with him that day.
I'll be up there late Saturday and all day Sunday. Last time I was there, they had just opened the museum, which is nothing like it is supposed to be today. Can't wait
