The Never Ending Story...

The story begins...

It was July and unusually hot in the southeast portion of the USA. The sun was just starting to rise and anybody outside was starting to perspire. After at least 12 weeks of continued rain and flooding, the weather forecast was more of the same , with no relief in site. The forest was unusually quiet too. Except for...

And when the rain finally stopped, it became dry as hell. Then the fires started again...

I rode to Naples a couple of weeks ago, on back roads. The whole lower half of the state is pretty flooded. I saw cows in water up past their chests and a 6 ft alligator in the road just South of Arcadia on 31.

An F650, 2-up, with hard bags! and maybe an ADV sticker on the back.

Our hero alerts the troups with the secret code, FYYFF!

And...

A guy on a Vino scooter. You can tell by the rumble it's got a big bore, and TKC's on it... this guy must be kind of a big deal around here. As this playa twists the throttle, unleashing the power of the scooter. The knobby struggles to keep traction....
