Sure come on out and join us.

This Saturday morning will see the return of another PAR fastburner who has been deployed away from us for awhile.

The pace will be fast but all are welcome. I think you will find Blackwater a step above Point Washington (IMHO).

for general info see below:

To all n00bs:
There are generally three types of riding offered on the PAR thread. Hope you enjoy the area riding as much as we all do…

1) ADV rides- slower paced (not slow but slower paced) rides through mostly Blackwater State Park and other areas beyond. Bigger 650s 400s do well on these rides. For those wanting a good ride without a fast pace. Stops, pic opps, and eating are normally on the agenda. Rides are as long or short as folks want.

This is where n00bs should start. Get a feel for the area and the guys.

2) FASTBURN – This is phrase I coined a while back to refer to a much faster paced ride through the tightest trails/jeep roads we can find. Most rides are through Eglin so permits are required. High skill levels are not required but highly recommended. The rides are usually in the morning and are over in 3 to 4 hours. ExRacers wind up in this group.

3) Beasty Rides where the action is almost all street. Great rides through Fl, Al and beyond. Watch for posts. Certain big rides every year. North Monroe County is a favorite ride destination.

YOU MUST HAVE A TAGGED AND STREET LEGAL BIKE FOR ALL RIDES
Meeting Places

Jackson Guard

I talked to Nancy (the lady at the Jackson Guard front desk) yesterday and she said they were open but not sure how long it would last or if they would be affected at all. If you are getting your permit now, you can get the Small Game Permit for $10 and it will cover you for the Fiscal Year (1 Oct-30 Sep). Nancy will give you a lecture on when you can take firearms on the range and that the season doesn't start until January but it will still let you be on the Eglin Reservation and ride legally. The fishing permit is $20 and is good for one year from the date you purchase it so if you just need a permit to ride then the Small Game Permit is the cheapest way in dollars per month of riding unless it is after 31 March. If you just want to donate extra cash to the government you can get the Recreation Permit which is $12, good 1 Oct-30 Sep and doesn't allow you to do anything except ride e.g. no hunting or fishing.

Welp, got a job offer in Tejas and I'm moving there on the DR (don't have a car) friday. Real shame I didn't get to ride with more of you. Gonna miss blackwater a ton- there isn't much within a few hours riding where I'm headed and certainly nothing as pretty.

Take it easy
