Looks like company's coming.

Any hints on changing rear brake pads on a Harley? Are they dumber than regular bikes?

Harleys spend more time on trailers than my KLR's why does it need the rear brakes changed? Corrosion?

GS ride

The BMW GS ride was a success w/ Rich at the helm.
Scott w/ his neat GSA from TX was a good addition & a surprise to meet on the trail. The select group of 7 BMWs & 1 Russian had no downings but made more than a few major snake tracks.

Well done Rich, much thanks

I could easily see Rich as a professional ride coach, he is a natural.

Thanks Rich

Perfect ride to get my sea legs on the GSA. Great to see everyone. Looking forward to more rides.

Btw. Missed Waybill. Kinda........he's a great guy to ride with....but the conversations about the rides usually go something like....Oh you will be fine...its big bike friendly...a lot of rain so the sand isn't too bad....recap of the ride Something like.....wow I have never seen it that bad.....missed you Bill.

On your bike? You will be fine

Impromptu Osceola ride this afternoon. Meet at 3pm at Olustee monument.

I am riding my DR but is does not really matter what you ride, will be staying on the roads, as I imagine the trails will be underwater.

Olustee Quick Brap

It was a nice day for riding. It could have been a few degrees cooler but the sky was beautiful. Alex and I went for a quick trip before the meet up.

60 miles on knobblies sucks, but then there is ONF!



We stuck mostly to the dirt super highway the rails we pretty wet.



Alex rides the six fiddy like a champ, time for a real dirt bike



Plugging the CADS by the lake.



Aftermath of a small tip over.



This was a fun little trail we only got down a half mile of so, but is was nice.





Navigating some of the puddles



More dirt superhighway








It was bout fiddy miles










EDIT: Forgot to mention I ran out of gas Err I mean, I checked the DR's range on the way home. Fortunately WayBill was kind enough to check on me.
