Man, that brings back happy memories. That guy on the Kawi was looking pretty squirrely!

Rick,

I m with you. My first time watching this its like Im racing again and thinking - I can pull this guy but he's all over and very dangerous. Pick the spot. And the Yame rider did just that. Agressive pass in the clay pit.. and then a great job of catching 1and 2..
BTW the way these guys shot off the line I would say this was the AA or A class...lots of smokers also... maybe an age class ... like over 55. And remember this was just lap 1 out of 5...

Yeeee Hawwww!

You dont quit riding when you get old, you get old when you quit riding.
I don't always ride street bikes, but when I do I prefer VStroms

I guess we never lose that ability to spot the right time to take the guy in front of us...

Gotta love jumping on a bike at any time to mess around.

Love the GasGas!

Are they open for daily rides? If so, sounds like a day trip.

Steve called this morning suggesting we ride some twisty roads and see the sights in Walton county. We met north of Defuniak and he led us through some fun roads, saw a few sights and had an excellent lunch in Red Bay. We can't seem to keep our street bikes off the dirt though.

Phil and I assembled a storage shed this weekend. Great weather to install 1500 tiny screws in sharp metal pannels.

Glad somebody went riding. I know that place were you took the pic of Steve.

Screwing is supposed to be fun.

Bet the skeeters are bad there when it warms up. We saw lots of dirt roads today that need to be explored.

High end expensive sport touring.
Gonna take a special customer to afford one of those. At any rate they'll be a extra tug on out of towners to see the BMW lineup.


Hey, deer hunting season will be over in Alabama in a couple days.
Beast ride this comin Sunday to do the Monroe county carnage ride.
Destruction, injuries, lost riders.
You know the drill by now.

Destroy! Destroy!

Me too Vic!
This is a beast ride,,,, definatly. Will be on some dirt roads, but they should be the good ones.
IF they're in bad shape we'll be on the secondary paved roads to visit the caves, the dam, the old towns and other stuff.
Might make the old Monroe County Courthouse museum where the movie To kill a Mockingbird was filmed back in the early 60's.
We'll see.

Meet up at the Little River Park sounds good.
Convenent spot if Rob and the Mobile Beast riders wanna go.
ROB????
