Funds don't allow that right now. I've spent all my money on court. Once I get all that money back I should have a few bucks to buy some luggage. Until then I'll sit on the sidelines and live through everyone else's adventures.

Saturday ride!

OK, guys, where are we riding this Saturday? Got a little rain and the dust should be settled this weekend, the temperature should be perfect and the horses seem to get along with us out there. I think we should explore the Squares some more! Every time out there we find something new!

it's going to take a miracle for me to be able to make it. i have to get new tires on my bike, i have too much to do before then to find the time to put tires on. if you want to do a street/gravel ride i should be able to swing that. there's no way i'm going back out into the sand with my crappy tires tho.

The earliest I'd be able to catch up with kyle would be Friday after work. And then I'd have to come home and spoon on two tires... I'm not saying its not doable but I'd be pushing it. For what its worth the skunk ape guys are headed to Lucky's on loop road this Saturday.

Will that tire fit on the KLX? If it fits I'll help change them out. I'm pretty quick changing tires.

i'm pretty quick to.... just a lot to drive out to naples and get a tire then drive back and change them. maybe i'll drive out there and grab it, come home and change the front out and see if i feel like changing the rear. i think if i air my rear down it might get me by for a ride. id ride out there and we could change them at your house but i have no way to get the new front there and the bike.

anyone down for Hoot's tomorrow night? i've been sick and cooped up in the house for a week and really need to get outside! i rejetted the bike over a week ago and haven't even ridden it yet. maybe i'll ride her to work tomorrow.

Thanks kyle but I am out for working on the bike today. I was up late last night prepping for a hearing that I had today so as soon as I get off work I'm coming straight home and passing out. You guys have fun.

Did you guys go riding yesterday? Any pics or video? I'm glad I didn't go with you guys. I jetted my bike a couple weeks ago and I took it out yesterday for the first time since jetting it. It has lean surge super bad. I don't get how that's possible when I I ha e a stage 2 needle now and a 160 main compared to the 145 main I had in it on our last ride.

I guess the fight continues.

They were out- We ran into/introduced each other on Janes, me Northbound and them heading points South. I initially thought one of 'em was you, Alex. It was funny that you were our common ground. We did see a big ol' doe cross Janes while we were standing around talking, but no pythons.

I just know everyone don't I....hahaha. I wish I could have ridden with them but I had a big court case I was prepping for Thursday night so Friday I was beat. I slept until noon on Saturday. It was totally worth it tho and I got the results I wanted. So who's ready to meet Parker?
I was thinking I'll bring him to the next breakfast at sawgrass.

Parker

That would be so cool, Alex! We would love to meet your Son.

Yes, I did take some video. You would have had no problems with your tires. I don't think we found any dry sand all day. Maybe you can tell bu the video.

Here's the ride out with Tommy leading.

Our first ride of the day with Steve leading.
