Someone to ride(Dualsport) with June 13th or 14th

I will be in Destin on June 13 and 14. I would love to ride one of these days if anyone is free.

One thing ya can do that's a surefire good time even if yer by yerself: from Destin, head north about an hour to Harold FL and ride up Deaton Bridge Rd. to the Hutton WMA. There you'll find a few thousand acres to ride around in, with every riding surface the FL Panhandle has to offer. Dirt, red clay, pine needles, gravel, and plenty of sand too, and ya don't hafta worry about gettin lost back there, as the WMA boundaries are either fenced off or posted.

30.686124, -86.877186 will get ya real close to this:


Lotsa this right here


There are a lotta dead ends and loops, but it's fun riding and it's possible you'll have the whole place to yerself. Good cellphone coverage out there too, in case ya hafta call for assistance. If ya see a desperate-lookin individual carrying a floatie around, do the right thing and give him a ride back to the pavement. It's just Floatie Dude, and he's harmless...confused and mentally challenged maybe, but definitely harmless.

Brian,
I have been gone and not watching all sites. My KTM is down now but should be running by then (I Hope). Would love to ride with you.

I will get something together for BW. Different from the Trot!!!

Look forward to it.

Sounds great Vic. I will give you a call the first of next week and we can get the details worked out. The 24 hour race is this weekend at PMMC, if you are free you should ride up.

Sticking close to home for awhile. Been gone last three weeks.
My Ktm is still down and head is not finished. I think I sent it to wrong people.

Still got the DR. What will you be riding? The Beta.
