I'll try not to bury the big BMW in the sand.

I can remember a downhill "dead end" that was gated in Maine.
It required a very tight U-turn to reverse direction. I pushed and pulled for what seemed like forever with a fully loaded bike.

So... if you see a big bike stuck deep in the sand it's me and I was not paying attention when the red dirt hardpack gave way to deep sand.

The TKC80's are looking better all the time!
Or a shovel?

Yup. Actually just north of Salt Springs

Get here in early November and leave in early April. 3rd winter we're here.

Not riding much, 'cause been busy rebuilding this place, and the sand sucks.

Anyone want a good 2003 Kawi Super Sherpa?
(250cc, 6 speed, air cooled)

Also spending a lot of time supporting Pat's long distance (horse) endurance and competitive trail riding campaigns. Just this past w/e she did her first 100 mile competitive trail ride and won first in the light weight division, best trail horse, and best horsemanship awards!!!!! might have to build a trophy room.

I'd like something like a Super Sherpa. What price range are you looking for?

I'm thinking $1900

It has about 3400 miles I think. A few scratches etc from normal off road use. Comes with a high front fender, rear rack, and tank bag. Fresh oil change and carb cleaning.

MY land line phone went dead this afternoon, but email me to continue this conversation.
