Mugwest, I'll just ride and meet you at the Petro about 8:30. I am on the west side and it will take 1/2 hr to get there or so. The XR has a full baja kit w/ mirrors. The speedo and DOT's are the only thing lacking.

Agreed, Broxon Landing is a good jump-off loc. Dakota, if you'd rather not trailer it, you can ride over w/ me via US90 to SR87, never touching I-10. I usually stay off 10 anyway to save the knobs. By shadowing me over the lack of speedo would'nt be an issue. Are you good to go in all other areas (tag, blinkers, lights etc) ?

Anybody else? Salladmaster, where you at man?

Later champs

No knobs here yet guys.. Still waiting on these dang Conti road attacks to wear out. Can't wait to get some tires and ride with all of you!!

Brother Mug, you know I've got blood in Broxson Landing (believe geneologically speaking there should be an 's' in there) since Broxson is my late G'ma's maiden.

Wish I could be heading out with all you folks on the weekly Ops, but Sat on-air is my one constant. Plus the Tourance wearing F650 would be a effing pinata (and my un-able ass with it) trying to keep up.

I'm there in spirit -In more ways than one it seems if you're headed out from Broxson landing- have fun! Be safe!

ok well apparently it cant be fixed. took the bike down to p'cola motorsports, they found a blank that fit, took the code off the ignition, made the key, and it didnt work. the best price for a professional locksmith was 85 bones, which I dont have. almost thinking at this point of just takin the screwdriver and hammer to it

anyone know a good locksmith that aint gonna charge that much? (I know its not a bad price, I just dont have it right now)

mug- how was ridin in that rain?

XT- Take the lock to Ubers on Fairfield, south of Home Depot. I took a pick-em-up bed box lock there and he made me TWO keys for $ 7.50. Forget P' cola ripoff motosports! The rain... well it was muddy and wet! Had a good time riding with Mugwest though. I put 150mi. on from house to house, that equals to 75 in area. He even caught the ol' XR once for me! Go figure, the WHOLE forest and I had to park the XR on the Beammer!

Long distance ADV rider coming our way!

Hey Pensacola/Area Gang,
I`ve offered "Mr. Cob" accomidations on his round the US tour that will be starting soon. Click on this link to view some of his plans:
http://www.advrider.com/forums/showthread.php?t=335572
He has accepted my invitation, and states that sometime in late July or early August he`ll be passing through. By that time, I hope to have ridden with you all, and maybe you all would like to have a get-together at my place when he gets here to hear some his wild and crazy stories. Mr. Cob is a wildman on his Ural Gearup, and I`ve enjoyed reading his posts and viewing his videos on the Adventure Rider site. I`ll keep you posted, and will be getting together for a ride in the Blackwater Forest and Eglin (had my permit from jackson guard for several months now)
Regards,
Madhouse

I think it was just "time". 4 years of bashing and "0" maintenance on the spokes... As for the kind words about my "skills", it was 1/2 luck and 3/4 uncontrolled kaos! BTW, I found a spoke wrench in the KLR tool pouch and will attempt to fix it today.

Does Pensacola terrain suit heavy trailies?

I am moving from San Diego to Pensacola this summer and I am debating if I should bring my KTM 950 Aventure or sell it.

Eglin Pass info

[quote=Mugwest]
I questioned him on what the penalties for various infractions are-- turns out the biggest legal hit is riding off the clay roads in the various clay pits that are all over the place out there-- he said if caught shredding offroad there's a court appearance involved and they get the erosion people at Jax Guard to go take pix of the damage and try to charge the rider w/ 'environmental vandalism' or some such charge. If the damage is severe they attempt to levy a monetary penalty for repair/remediation.

Confirmed on Friday 2 MAY 08. The Police are hot and heavy out there, not from coffee and doughnuts, buy your pass and enjoy. Otherwise, if cought without, be banned and if Military, get your Command involved because Eglin LOVES to get EVERYONE involved, even for Stupid simple infractions. Be safe fellas! Dakotarider

Heres to Dakota:


Not only can he park an XR on a BMW, but he has kick ass advice on locksmiths - Uber's had me in and out in 15 minutes (5 to do the job, 10 to talk to em about their awesome armory in the store) and for a new key with a duplicate, it totalled out at 12.50 - cant beat that, literally!
Thanks again man!!

So whats the plan for the next ride folks? Friday?

Hey Riders, Suches was incredible, as always--lotsa good riding in the Chattahoochee Natl. Forest! I've got lots to do this Sat. AM but will be up for an afternoon ride, no doubt about it. Got some new shoes on the little KLR that should help with my lack-of-traction issues.

Madhouse, sorry you couldn't make it to Suches, we hooked up with JP/Morris/Roy on Saturday and Morris led us on an epic ride. Also, I'd love to meet this famous advrider "Mr. Cob," he's a living legend around here! I've been greatly entertained by his trip reports, I'm sure hearing them in person would be even better...

Hope to see you riders Saturday.

Well, what will it be this weekend boys? I saw that XTJerry can ride Friday, (PM me) what about Sat? I can only go until 2. I need to pick up my boy between Crestview and Navarre early in the afternoon. I will just throw the mighty XR in the cage and unload around the hwy 87 area and meet you all someplace. I know it is a short day but what the hey! It is a ride non the less. I don't have a GPS and I don't have the area expertise so I don't want to lead but would be happy to trail along. I received my Trail Tech Vapor and rear pads today and need to finish the install on the XR. The KLR is ready to go if needed! After watching Mugwest ride the Beemer, the Kawi would have been a lightweight! Man can he handle that thing! Like Al Bundy would Say " Let's Ride!"
