Recommended Posts


Starting May 17th Croom will be closed on Tue/Wed.

Hopefully this is all thats going to happen.

The Ranger said its a money thing.

You would hope our Rep Governer will help out.

yup, found out today myself. Talked more with Mark Good who manages this and a few of the other state parks. He tells me part of it is being short staffed (a result of budget cuts, hiring freeze, and then other problems). Really working on him to get a little longer hours on the days they will be open rather than continuing to close at 6pm but that is not for sure yet. There is also a "club" that hopefully will allow members to pay a fee, and ride after hours (maybe on the closed days too??). but lots of things to work out on that front too, especially legal issues of liability if rangers or emergency personel/first responders are not there if someone were to get hurt after regular park hours.. will have to wait and see..

      I am sad to say my 2006 450 EXC was stolen from my Atlanta apartment complex  (Northside Drive) near Gatech. Thursday at 6:09 PM.  Any information that is beneficial to my Case investigation will be rewarded. 
      The silver 2015 Nissan Altima is an accomplice that initially brought him through the security gate and tried to give the thief a ski mask.
      Thank you

      Just curious what riders will be at Brown & what your trail plans are as I may need a partner/partners for technical ST riding.

      Recently got into riding a dual sport.  Kinda fun being able to just hop on my KLX and explore for an hour or two but still have the option of running in a hare scramble or enduro just for self torture.
      Looking for other dual sport riders in the area to explore with.  I have a trailer so we could drag the bikes just outside of town, or just hit croom for a day now and then as well.
      I've run across a couple other dual sport guys in the area and none of them actually want to ride off road (??).  The other guys I've run into have bigger heavier bikes and are more into long highway rides and flat dirt roads .. that is not real fun on a 250.  A friend of mine mentioned somewhere south off 75 where people have been riding but I haven't been down there yet.
      I'm in St. Pete.

      Years ago 3 rail galvanized trailers were plentiful and I could easily find one when I needed one, but I'm having a hard time finding another used one this time.
      Anyone know where I might find a used 3 rail galvanized trailer for sale in the (west) central FL area?
      If so please PM me!
