Default Florida riding

Psycleboy-

Riding in Florida is a lot different. I'm a transplant from Washington State. I've been riding down here for about 7years. I live in St. Augustine. I ride my 200ec out in the Ocala National Forest. It's alot of sugar sand, not like desert sand out west. Real silty, took me awhile to get used to it. But now I love it. Ocala National Forest is great, they have been making changes. There is some tight single track only trails (killer fun). Also there are alot of quads down here. So watch out. Best bets are to have a street legal enduro. My ec200 is street legal (barely). You can ride the trails then take a swim at one of the crystal clear springs. You will miss not having serious hill climbs. But you can ride year round and you don't have to wear cold riding gear. Let me know if you move here. I'll show you some good ride spots.

Later
Gas Huffer
