Ready to Ride!

Well, here I am in Northeast Ohio, bike is loaded. My gear is loaded. I have to wait until my wife gets off work tomorrow! No matter how fast I drive I won't get there yesterday.

My brother and I are still going to ride over to Cedar Key later this week. I hope all you guys had a great time. Looking forward to the pictures.

Water Crossing--How not to.

Thanks for the awesome weekend. Special props to Ronnie for not holding my head under water for holding us up for an hour. By some good fortune, my GoPro was running when I found the abyss. So in full 1080p HD, you can watch it "go down". Fortunately the audio isn't as high res--not family friendly. The file is huge so once I figure out how to snip it I'll get it posted.

Chris

Not to worry, part of the adventure. We were gung-ho getting off that ferry. The first couple water crossing were easy enough. The water hole you hit was in a blind corner and you were unlucky with the line, but we jumped in the 'nice and clean' Ocala water(up to our waist) and dug* it out. We were wet but hit even more water getting through the forest. In the end we got the Suzuki out and it started up, we didn't have to leave and ride two up to get your truck...like some of the others.

On the route back though, you could see both of us avoid even the slightest water puddle.

And lol at Mark who rolled up as we pulled the zuk out, to say, "i think you were suppose to go straight".

P.S Chris i hope I didn't ruin your story if you were going to follow up(looking forward for the vid)

Sorry if there was a hiccup in the instructions (you weren't the only ones) but yeah it was straight. We wouldn't do that to ya on purpose.

I'd like to hear how you really got it out of there!

Fun times with wankers, wankettes, grandmas, FFs, hooligans, and plateless KTMs. Have a ton of photos, but...too lazy to upload em all. So, here's the ferry photo.



Big thanks to CADs for putting it on. Mike for the roll charts, Bill and crew for the doing the dirty work, and SFront/FIL/DRZ for navigating our way to the Key and back. Heard some of our food might still be waiting

See ya guys next year!

lol, no worries Bill. Both routes were great. I couldn't imagine the amount of effort and time that went into those routes, huge undertaking. Entire event was top notch.

Sorry we missed y'all at supper last night. Matt & I rolled in just as BG was finishing loading his bike.

In spite of the mechanical trouble, we had a great time this weekend. A fine job was done by all.

Great time

This was my first advrider event in a long time and I had a great time. Rode with the group of 7 coming back from CK Sunday morning. I was on a borrowed DR350 and enjoyed the sights and sounds of rural Florida. I used to live in Levy Co. and still found places I'd missed before. All I need now is my own dual sport motorcycle. I've got a supermoto, maybe I'll just check on SM tires or dual sport. Hopefully something good in 17" will work.

I was having fun but had to turn around. That was the most I'd ridden that old beater and I had to head home to fix a couple things. It took me 1/2 hour to get back across the bridge cause of the construction.

Hope you guys had a good ride.

We were hoping you were going to join us for the trip to Cedar Key. I thought if I stayed behind you, you would think you were one of us. Plan to join us next year.

Sorry for the fingers, but that is why most of my pictures are no good.

I had a great time too! Big thanks to Ronnie for bailing me out before we even started - I ran out of gas a couple miles from the start. I only had 100 miles on a 4 gallon tank! . But no issues the rest of the time.

It was great to see people I knew and meet some new people. Really nice that some folks came from far away. Wow!

We really have a beautiful state here. I totally enjoyed the routes and seeing it again. I miss that rural life.

Well, can't wait until we can do it again!

Thanks to all who put the event together. Great job!

That's probably the most action that old lady has seen in 20 years! I think she's my new hero.

Great job of putting all of it together, it was fun riding in deep sand and bombing through hard packed stuff on the mighty dr!

Thank you all for a fun weekend!

It was nice meeting old friends and making new ones!

See Y'all at the next rally!
