yes sir.

here's my story and pics.

we were going to ride the whole way there and back but the night before i noticed when i got home that my rear wheel bearings where on their way out. i was gonna chance it anyway and put the bike out and got all geared up and then thought it might not be such a good idea. so i pulled out the trailer and loaded up the bikes. we trailered to the walmart on 951 and road out from there. just the basic glades ride, sabal palm, jsd, loop rd., iron rhino. weather was looking bad while we were on loop rd so we just rode to the nice water way on the north end. we then tucked tail and head right into the storm and rode to the iron rhino. by the way... there is a new ten thousand mile island trail that seems to have just been built for peds and b-cycles. doesn't appear to be open yet so i took a quick/ very short ride down the trail and it looks interesting... all 2 track dirt that looks like it goes for miles.

anyways here's a few pics... they speak for themselves and pretty much all have my girl in them since i was the one with the camera


ps don't hate on the vest, you all know you love it

Nice! I wish I could have gone...I'd definitely like to tag along sometime. I found JSD and Loop Road but haven't heard of the others yet. You planning on riding this weekend? If not, where are the others you listed (the basic glades ride, sabal palm, iron rhino)? I'll see what I can find by searching of course.

Now I just need to get a bike for wifey....

i'm sure i'll be riding this weekend but it'll probly just be on the street. when i did my rear wheel bearings this weekend i noticed that my wheel seals ate grooves into my spacers so the seals are useless. i'm going to order a bunch of goodies tonight for it and hopefully be ready for the sand again soon. i plan to go to Felda next.

Sabal Palm is off 951 in Naples and iron rhino is off tamaiami trail in naples as well.

pedal bike

Few of us are going bar hopping on pedal bikes @ ft myers beach. Sounds funny and should be a good time.

This sunday the 9th.

I think a few of the roller derby girls might skate along!

Hey Alex - saw you and Ashley last night....My wife and I were actually able to get out of the house w/o the kids for a little bit, so we went car looking since she's in need of a new one....

Anyway, we were heading south on 41 and saw you two just west of 41 at a light getting ready to turn north...Figured you were probably heading to Stevie's, but we were on a mission....Drove slow by there on the way back in case you guys were still there, but didn't see the bikes out there, but it was after 10 by that time...

Guess what the Brown Truck man dropped off to my office in Ohio today???



















Mr. Ohlins sent me some goodies for the beemer

The food sucked at Stevies ??? Let me guess the service sucked too! Might hit up benchwarmers @ island park shopping center near san carlos thursday. Meeting some people up there for preseason football.

I need to get back on a bike soon.

Alex,

I figure if it doesn't sell for that then it can sit in the garage until I have time for it. I've had a few suitors but most of them were a thousand miles away....

i'm in the same boat with the xt350. it will sell sooner or later for what i want. gas will go up again for sure and then we might be able to get more for our bikes

ps ship that sucker, i paid $600 to have mine shipped to me. seemed like a small price to pay to have the right bike for me.
