I am new to the forum. Picked up a nice clean 2014 XC. Looking for fellow riders in my area who enjoy short trips through the country side on the weekends.

This was last Sunday in west central Florida. Light rain the night before meant zero dust. Perfect weather. We did 30 miles off road, and about 200 miles on. Found a manmade spring fed lake out in the middle of nowhere. Loving the new bike. New Trail Max Mission tires are awesome. Come join me and my buds on any Sunday.

Nice!

I'm not sure if it really counts as a ride in Florida unless you get a picture of your bike with an alligator, though. :001:
Silly Harley rider......Don't you know that Tigers eat hogs?

 :745: :745: :745: I'm going to have to agree on that  :745: :745:

Great pics and it's always nice to meet folks who ride these bikes in their natural habitat  :821: :821: :821:

Kudos and keep the pics coming  :467:

Your Tiger is very nice looking, and it looks like you might have some interesting riding down there.

But I guess that if I want pictures of alligators & Tigers, I may have to visit this place, just 15 minutes from where I live in Battle Creek, MI:



They have another sign on the building warning that "No outside animals allowed inside."  I can't imagine why. :005:
