Scout Ride

A ride is planned for this Saturday. Meet Salt Springs Shopping/Welcome Center 11:00am. This is another scouting run. This means we have no idea where we are going or what we will find. Dead end, trees downs, generally just lost

It one is up for this form of entertainment, then join us for some "creeping" If you want us to wait, make sure someone knows you are coming, and of course make sure that they actually make it there on time

We will start riding about 11:45, then eat from 1200-2:30 get ready to ride again 2:30-4:00 then ride from 4:15 to 4:30. Then back to trailers for trip home.. Does that sound about right?

Just kidding....I think

Oh, and I think there should be enough sand..
COOL!!! I did their class a few years ago! Bill C and Ray H are AMAZING riders!!!....and instructors! Best money I ever spent on the bike, learning how to really ride it!!!!! But since my tree mating incident last year my confidence has been a bit down, having a practice run before we hit the trails would be nice.

Scouting Trip

Well we had another great scouting trip to Ocala National Forest. I am thinking December is a great time to ride. Temps in the 70's (which still had us sweating like old dogs ). Anyway posted up the ride this time and we had only 5 of us So much for big demand on going riding...

Anyway had 2 riders join us who had not been on these scouting excursions recently. One on a Husky with real street tires, I mean they were not even dual sport So much for thinking you can do it with out knobbies
I will post a bunch of pictures without too much comment. Some of the areas are the same and some not. There was a little rain out these since our last ride.It helped conditions a little. It created 2 water holes for the entire ride. And of course yours truely fall over in the deep one I found the water to be very cold, So I was up and running in line before anyone noticed













Move along nothing to see just a nap







I bet you thought I was kidding about the street tires Needless to say, I had nothing to say about the sand
with him riding in it with those tire. Sand? What sand...





More to come stay tuned..

Scouting

So we were having fun...



Some great forest stuff













Then we found some sand



After a short nap, Sam's bike would not start. Push the magic button and nothing.


So expert advise was given. Did you push the button really hard? Did you check the kill switch, you know, really technical stuff



So we are going to have to go in I emloyed my management skills to keep myself busy



Actually Sam had an old wire wrapped around his handbar. I tried to throw it away when we loaded the bikes on the trailer. He yelled at me to leave it, this is a 350 he said, you need stuff like that....



It actually took Sam about 30 seconds to start his bike using the wire directly from the battery to the starting thing-a-ma-jig He used this technique for the rest of the ride So we were back in business



Back to the bikes













Then a mad dash to lunch





After lunch back to some more woods

















Another good day in December in Florida

Nice report Rich, it's probably my favorite area to ride this time of year, provides enough of a challenge with some nice scenery.

Keep in mind there aren't any pictures of the tricky stuff cause it takes both hands and full attention (at least mine) to get thru it, you'll have to use your imagination.

We may have to adjust the route some as it gets closer to the GS ride depending on conditions and how we're doing on time then, but I think we now know where we can and can't take the big bikes to keep the group moving along at a decent pace. Thanks all you guys for coming on the different rides and providing feedback, it's a big help getting some practice in before the event and to get a feel for things. Not that we need an excuse to go down there and just have some fun....
