I hope you make the ride, but the 'option 2' for the ride has been scratched for lack of interest. This year's ride (our first attempt at using a ride for a fundraiser) will be street only. If this one goes over well, I'm thinking about a dualsport ride in the spring that will take another route and be a little more entertaining for those of us that like to get our bikes dirty.

Having said that however, come on up and meet some of the gang. After the official ride is over, if you have some free time, I'll personally take you and show you some of the area dirt roads and how to get to Bogs and Boulders. That KLR will do great on our route.

Would like to tag along on a street bike with yall if this is the case if possible. Let me know - Thanx !
Sweet, meet you guys at Burger King at 6:15. Should be a fun day!!

So NewDaze, what kind of streetbike are you riding up? I'm asking because if we're not riding dirt I might change the bike I'm bringing too.

KLRkemp - great time to join us. Welcome and Come on up and join the group. AJ is right about the Fastburns. Plenty of KLR action though, ask Inept or Barney.

AJ - see Trot thread about camping. Well talk this weekend.
Looks like I'm out for this weekends Evergreen trip. Will try to make it next year if possible for the Dual Sport part of the ride. Hope you have a great turn out and lot's of fun.

For the record, Mr, AJART is the first Orange rider to corrupt the ADV group, and HE is to blame for bringing ME into the group. He is part of that strange Crestview Orange Fast Train who are partly respondible for altering the ADV "Ride the World" to "Ride the World Really FAST".

Lets all prep for the Get Jiggy with Riggy weekend FASTBURN on the 24th.

I may bring the Vico1 Resort Motorcycle Emporium and Tanning Salon to Spec on Friday and spend a few nights there.

Just thinkin

You never know who you'll run into....

Stopped in local Shell station to gas up the cage this morning and a guy pulls up next to me on a BMW oilhead streetbike. Aerostich gear, well used tank bag, dry bag bungeed to panniers. I of course comment on his bike and tell him I have a GS. Turns out, he's 78 years old, retired and widowed w/ grown children. On his way from his residence in Georgia to his brother's place in Orange Beach for a few days. Says he's taken the bike to California and back three times so far. He was a retired naval aviator and was great fun to share stories with. We chatted for a half hour or so and I gave him a business card w/ my contact info in case he was ever passing through and needed anything.

I love this sport.

Greetings to all. Just dropping in to intro myself as I met a guy up here at whiting this morning who told me about this thread so here I am. I'm Chris, I live in Pace and I ride a 2010 KTM 690R. Hope to meet up with other local riders to hit some trails around here soon.

Also I'm teaching my girlfriend some riding basics but the 690 isn't the best learner does anyone around have an older DRZ400 or something similar sitting around that they may be looking to unload? Not real serious about buying yet but maybe.
