well just came back from a freaking awsome ride today with raptorfreak and my best friend today, damn talk about some great riding. got there around 10 and road for several hours, huge area, you could ride all day and never touch the same trail. only down side was its hunting season and i was kinda worried about getting a bullet in the ass for scaring dear but o well. my buddy should have some pics up shortly

probably gonna do this trip again in a few weeks or so, we need more florida riders to come out, come on florida riders lets get a nice group together.

i would like to thank raptorfreak for his hospitality in showing up the trails and providing my friend and i with some great riding. and hopfully we can do it again very soon.

he has the higher top speed because of the tooth. its on roads baby. he pulls me a lil in 4th and 5th, he can probably do about 3 to 5 mph faster than me.. so drive two cars at 20 and 25 mph and you see how he pulls. the launches are the same but he usually launches better than me because i put mine on its a$$ and dont like launching at high rpms. its first gear launches

on street is only place where its smooth enough to really let them hang out and we launch in 1st, on all other types of rding surface i launch in 2nd, in the trails i can hold gears a little longer so im not shifting as much, but once i get the big 3 done it will show a much bigger difference with the gears

Well I live in Hialeah and me and 3 other buddys of mine went to croom last weekend we did a one day trip and it was great. We left at about 2am and got there at about 7am rode all day and packed it up by 5pm got something to eat and hit the rode back. We where back in Hialeah be 9pm, so it wasn't that hard of a trip. Thought we where going to be dead the next day, but no good to go. I'm down for another one day trip.

Croom is awesome, I just cant make a day trip out of it, Its just too fun to go that far and just stay one day. I usually go on long weekends for 3-4 days and stay at the Hampton, and just lock up the quads like crazzzy. Im going the day after x-mas and then leaving friday for some riding in virginia :grin_nod:

I am always going up there. Anytime you guys from broward or dade want to set up a ride let me know. Even locally. I ride in Clewiston. Takes around an hour but the riding is good. Let me know. I am going this Sunday.

Let me know when you guys want to hook up and ride. We have the 07 700's and 2 of the 06 350's. We've been to Ocala but not croom. I'm surprised a lot of you have not went over to Scottsmore. It's always packed on the weekends

I've been riding there for around fifteen years. I met with Blue700 and Grandsport96 and showed them around. Had a blast dodging drunk ******** :beer: with loaded firearms :sniper: Great guys to tear it up with. We need to get a large group up to go soon.

i hate the direction ocala n.f. is going . i seeing way too many of these signs. i tried being an outlaw . that didnt last long . the man got me right in front of the house. all i got was a warning that day . great riding areas still there , as long as they dont make me ride on orv they are starting to make . they make me feel like a rat in a cage :mad:
