Ring, ring"

Tom - "Hey Swampy, it's Tom, you wanna go for a ride this afternoon?"

Me - "Can't make it today, Tom, how about tomorrow morning?"

Tom - "That's even better! What bikes are we riding?"

Me - "I'll bring the 6-9-0."

Tom - "Great I'll bring the DR650!"

And plans were made to meet at the DDS Hernando County Command Center at 0800....

Great, I've got time to finish my paper, get to sleep, get up, meet Tom, ride, get back and do another paper. School's gettin' in the way riding!

Brrrrrrrrp. Brrrrrrrrrrrp. Brrrrrrrrrrp The alarm goes off at 0615.
(No, my alarm clock doesn't actually sound like an '81 YZ490, but I just like to make the brrrp brrrp sound!)

Wheel the 6-9-0 outa the garage, turn the key, let the system pressurize, thumb the button and I'm riding. Riding outa my garage to adventures unknown...

I remember I used to get up way early to go riding... this morning... I remembered why...

The air is cool. The sun is rising. The mist in the air. Florida in the early hours is a sight to behold.

Traffic is sparse on rural country roads. Even more sparse on a Sunday morning at 0730... but now I remember why I liked to ride in the morning...

Florida in the morning. Beaches are beautiful at sunrise. So is the interior. The REAL Florida. The parts where no one likes to go, the tourists avoid, the city folk have no idea. I remember why I love mornings on a motorcycle. Scenes like this remind me of my childhood growing up in cow country Upstate NY...

I know I've said it before, but I get offended when I hear riders say Florida sucks to ride in. People are so blinded by instant gratification and fast paced activities, that they don't know how to stop for a moment and just breath. To be part of the world, part of the moment. To just.... be.

I remember why...

So we ride....

The aroma of pine needles, dust, and woods... a blue sky, a motorcycle... I remember now...

I get a peaceful, easy feeling in the woods...

Sharing the ride with a friend...

I remember now why I ride...

A glimpse of the river...

A quiet, peaceful feeling of what lays beyond the bend

..and taking in what the road gives you...

...and even when you reach the end of the road, things still look pretty good...

We make our way to refuel and part ways. It's now just a little before noon...

Yes I remember now...

3rd stop

If you want to get there and get back and take crazy detours (on purpose) all on one tank of gas without changing oil... Then ride a KLR

Our country was founded by radicals with guns. The day that ideal dies our country dies with it.

Today, I skipped out on a dirt ride and we went 2-up on a trip to see my old man, and to eat at the Backyard BBQ in Newberry.

Weaving our way though we found some camels.

They were just hanging out with these guys.

And a bunch of these dudes again.

Kim was shooting off the back of the the bike. This is the road we were on. I have been down it a few times. I think its called 180th ave rd., just North of the town of Flemington off 329. Hang a left after the right hand curve with a guardrail on your left. Then look to the South for openings in the trees. We just pull over and hang out for a while.

You will find a lot of 15mph curves with questionable road surfaces.

Yee Haw! But I take it real easy through here to be respectful of the property owners. I don't want to give them a reason to ask me to move along when I am looking at their animals.

This place is really cool.

Most of these are shot by Kim, in motion.

Another nice one, she was on a roll.

All you South FL folks, don't move up here as the traffic sucks!

Hi you two.

That was a fun area to ride. I'd like to get back up there soon.
