Dual Sport Riders / Spots in Orlando, what groups meet up?

Hi, first time posting.
This might not be in the correct forum, but I'm looking for people who ride dual sports in Central Florida (mainly east orlando area).
I purchased my first dual sport and it's been sitting in the garage for 2 years now, I need to find some riding buddies/places. Where do I begin?
Thanks.

I know plenty of places! I'm also in east orlando. though those places to ride ALL depend on how conservative you are on where you ride. some of them im not 100% sure your allowed to be riding to be back there. (nod nod wink wink) though nobody has told me to leave yet or shame on you dont go back there etc. Though not to be an age racist prick, but your not over the hill or anything are you? Ive ridden with plenty of old guys and its not good when we are 10 miles in the woods and my 52 year old uncle crashes his bike and hurts his back and kneecaps to the point where he cant ride back without me taking him on the back of mine and coming back to get his bike another day when hes better.

Sweet. I'm in my early 30s and don't mind getting aggressive out there. Although I don't have much experience offroad riding, I'm a quick learning and my bike has been fitted already (tires, suspension, sprocket, etc).
Back in college I used to have 2 Hondas, both 600cc crotch rockets, but I got sick of dodging idiots driving on our streets and decided to venture offroad.

Yeah, I'm down to meet up, are you able to PM me in these forums?

I'm thinking you should know about "over the hill" Johno.

Didn't someone identify you as being in their 60s.

well hey! It cant be argued with the fact that if your way up there in your age, no matter what shape your in, one crash and your basically out of the race for a while until you heal back up in another month or 2. ive seen it all many times before. im not saying old guys cant ride, im just saying they dont last very long before the slow moving bones and joints catch up to them and cause a mistake. but hey! dont worry, im gonna get there too!

Maybe a "reverse" mohawk.
