Hey man--appreciate the thought-- but y'all should pick where you want to ride, then I get to decide if I can make it!! Speck would be cool, 'cause we could check out Mossy and see what is left to ride there.

I do wish I could find something convenient to this SW corner of P'cola--but it would most likely be in Alabama. I generally have to leave about 2 hrs prior to start time to make Speck Pond/BW/ Karick. There used to be some single track in Mobile.


When Whiting comes available that will probably be my primary riding area...

Wherever you decide, I will try hard to make since it has been a looong time. And I know how much I am missed.

Where are these places? I am located in Destin and I would like to get into the panhandle riders. When do you normally meet up?

Question ***Destin Riders**

Hello all,

I'm Kurt brand new to the dual sport world and very anxious to learn as much as possible. I am located in Destin and would like to find some people who live out this way to ride with. I browsed through the forum and saw a lot of people live East (using Eglin as a reference) so if anyone lives out this way let me know! Also, I was curious about how often the panhandle riders are able to meet? I am going to get my range pass next week (leaving for Vegas monday) and would like to get some good riding in next Saturday or Sunday. I am not sure if it will be displayed but I have a 2004 DRZ-400E with minor modifications.

Full titanium FMF with Mage Bomb

This came off my '08 450. It's on KTMtalk and here on ADV for $350 but if any PAR riders want it I'll let it go for $300.

Should fit 08-11 450/530's. I can check if you're interested.

Sorry for the spam.

Welcome to PAR.

Seems like we have a new crop of n00bs. If you can stand it - read back for info on rides and who lives where. We are riding tomorrow from Spec pond on the reservation so you will need a permit to join us.

Read Post #2 (yes on page 1) for info...

Get involved and ride!

Tomorrows Ride

Ok guys I am gonna be out this evening so you guys decide when and where.

Im like Spec Pond leaving about 9AM (to give some more time to get there).

I will go where ever the crowds wants.

Been a long time since we rode Spec. Got plenty of rain so it should be awesome...

I will check in about 11PM and see what has been decided...

Decision on Sunday Morning Ride

Speck Pond, Stands Up and Wheels rolling at 9:00 AM!

Big Boy Rules Apply...in other words, I hope everybody can make it but no whining or excuses if you can't and at 9:00 AM whoever is there won't be there at 9:01.

I'm good for 0900 roll out. It's looking like I may need some extra time myself. Good friends = too much alcohol.

Don't pick up anything shiny on Eglin. That's the gist.
Many times I have excluded myself for lack of having that Elgin permit. This ride out of "Spec" is an example. Should have asked this question a long time ago, here goes;

Please explain who "they" are, and where in Niceville they may be found. Hours of operation, anything relevant to ensuring the errand will be successful.

Big thanks.

They are...

http://www.eglin.af.mil/news/story.asp?id=123048094

Jackson Guard in Niceville. For a nominal fee they will give you a nice map of Eglin and even treat you to a movie( no popcorn though). Just a short video to educate you on unexploded ordinances. But it is a must see. I believe they are open Monday - Friday , not sure of the hours but you can call 850-882-4165.
