West Central Fl Riders Tampa area

Born and raised in florida and lived in St Pete for 45 years. Started riding at 13 yrs old and have rode most of my life.Just got a DR650 to do day trips around west central Florida area and ride with others. Have been to Croom and ONF areas reciently but Croom park is not very dual sport friendly. It is more for 4 wheelers at this point IMO. If anyone wants to get together on weekends to do some street and trail rides with a 52 yr old rider that likes hard packed trails and roads give me a PM to set something up. Have truck to haul bikes if needed. Give me a yell

Merry Christmas!

Alex, thanks for driving down and having breakfast on Christmas Eve. Nice talking with you.
Mike, that was a great day of riding, even if I got soaked!
Here's a couple of the rides from the day:

Saturday ride!

Anybody still riding Dual Sports on Saturdays anymore? Looking for a Saturday ride. Again, the Squares works fine for me. I haven't mastered it yet!

OK, I'm thinking a ride in South Florida somewhere Saturday. Big bike, small bike both OK with me.
I'll be riding the GS a lot in the coming weeks. I've got a set of Continental Trail Attack tires coming that I have to put 1000 miles on for a test. (Free tires) I've got to ride them in different conditions, take pictures of the action, and compile a little data. Should be fun! It's for an article in the BMW MOA magazine.

I have friends coming in this weekend for the BCS Championship game (Go ND), so I can't go Sat. Hopefully you will ride the GS next weekend (12th or 13th) I need to get out for something besides just pavement.

I'm still fighting with my bike. Nothing seems to help it. I need it to, the jeep needs a $500 bearing replaced so I have to find a way to fix that without having to spend $500 so I'm sure shell be off the road for a week or so. Anyone want to trade a xrl for a klx? ghead:

I am still shooting for being able to ride in 2 weeks, I should have Parker this weekend.

from the looks of it i have finally fixed my bike. i'll have to give her a test run out to my buddies house this week and see how she does on the long haul but the "around the block" test shows that she's fixed. i put a new tire on the front and cleaned the air filter so she should be good to go this weekend.

Anyone want to go to ocala this weekend? I'm kinda thinking about putting the 3 rail on the back of the Jeep and heading up there this weekend. Maybe Friday through Monday.
