Damn, you guys have been busy. I got a little dirt ride in on Sat, rode some old rail line that has had the ties removed and found some cool sandy hill climbs to ride up just a few miles from the house. There is a huge swamp just south of there near Bronson, FL that I am going to check out next.

I will be in ONF riding next Sun, if anyone is coming out tell me where you want to meet up.

Hopefully I will have high speed internet out there in the next few days and I will be more willing to post. That dial-up doesnt work well at all, so I dont bother with it. When is the last time you saw a connection at 49,000 bps?

Scott, let me know if you want to get together for a street ride. Now is a good time, the weather is nice and I still dont have a job.

I was really hoping to come out and ride with the Fleas this Sunday but my wife's got to fly to Seattle so I think my two kids and I will be heading off to Croom, if they want to ride.

I'll be up for a street ride soon, need to dust off the Busa again.


That area with the old rail grade is a nice ride, I rode it last year. Good stuff.

Kids Stuff

I cleaned out my garage yesterday and came across a whole bunch of kids dirt bike clothes that have been out grown. Some items are new and never worn.

Thought I'd offer them up to the Fleas first. I have three pairs of kids dirt bike boots, Alpinestarts kids size 13 (white), Fox size 1 (I don't think were ever worn) and Fox size 3.

An extra small blue chect protector, an extra small helmet, a pair of Fox 360 pants size 24 in blue and a pair of Fox tactic pants size 26.

I also have a brand new pair of Thor Quadrant adult boots, size 9. My kid grew out of them before he ever got a chance to wear them.

Pm me if you may be interested in any of this stuff

The KLR is for the wife but I don't think she will spend alot of time on it. She can't touch the ground on a KTM and we got a smokin deal on it.

give me a few more weeks of getting used to my new Magna then I'll be happy to join y'all.

Unless you plan to do a ton of stuff off the beaten path, then I'm SOL and I'll meet you at the nearest slab exit for a beer.

Visited the Dr today and I've got an appt with the Orthopedic Dr next week. My HMO makes me jump through hoops to see the effin specialist I need to see! Bastards! That's the way this bs works. Doc said it didn't look too good and, judging by how swollen it is & where the pain is, I may have tore some shit up in my knee! That blows! I've had trouble with my right knee before when I had a collision with a calf on my DR350 about 9 years ago. That little fucker made me highside off the bike upon impact, landing on my (you guessed it) right knee, back, helmet, etc. Nothing happened to the calf, that some bitch kept on going through a hole in the fence back to his pasture. I guess it finally caught up to me! Oh well, shit happens! I'll wait to see what the Ortho Dr says after I get an MRI. In the meantime, rum & coke seems to ease the pain a little. Needless to say, I may not be riding for a while. I'll keep you FFs posted.
