Hi guys. Some of you might remember me saying that I would be moving to Tallahassee a few months ago, well I'm finally here. Rode up to havana today and saw a red 1150gs with a passenger at a store in havana. Was it one of you guys? Also rode a bit in south GA through calvary; sure is some pretty country y'all have out here.

I rode through there with a passenger, but I was on my DL. Then hit the ANF on the 690, and a pass

I saw you I think. I hate to admit it but I was on the big cruiser with no helmet and all denim, and my passenger (fiance) was ATGATT. I need to get her some gear of her own.

Sorry, buzz personage, I didn't see this until too late. I normally ride on Sunday AM's, at the Silver Lake OHV trailhead at 0830, with my ole riding bud from yesteryear, Rick, who's either aboard a KTM RFS or 300 EXC, depending on his mood.

We normally do 1/2 single track OHV's; 1/4 loggin' roads; and 1/4 groomed NF roads to get from one good trail to another. You won't slow us down -- since both of us are older than dirt, we ride sloooooow. Faihfully obeying the NFS speed limit of 30 mph. Especially on the deep, sandy whoops.

I need to plan a trip over there soon and let you show me around. Use to ride the forest there in the old days but nothing in the last five years...

Yes I would look to PAR for guidance in complying with all FEES and REGULATIONS....

The OHV stuff I rode yesterday (with a pillion) looked to have seen little traffic. 11,11r,10,10a,10r... mostly the stuff around Moore Lake, and Dog Lake, then the stuff North West of the range. 4, etc. Was dry, but not too dusty.

We was all over that area. We go Pro Moto Billet kickstands up at 0830, wrapped up yesterday at 11:06:39. Only folk in the parking lot at SL were three aTV's and a Yamaha 250 thumper. Riding 10, et al, with a passenger would be tricky.

Have you checked out the new bridge at the spot where my favorite picture ever was taken?

I rode in from the house, and didn't get there until around 1:00 A buddy of mine was in the Zombie truck as a chase vehicle if my passanger got tired of two up single track.

Thanks for the heads up!

To the guy in the day glow green mesh jacket riding a V-strom with the Trax bags, Thanks! I was westbound going through Carrabelle and you let me know about the cop running radar at the base of the bridge. He would have got me!
