was thinking that we should start a new thread just for croom, seems there are enough of us that live in florida that we can post up when we are going ect. and maybe meet up, what ever or maybe just get questions answered. ..... anyway ,ive never been on a weekend, and ive also only been on two wheels. beeing a recent convert. are the weekends as crazy as they say. and can you find a place to park. i have an avalanche and a 16 ft. trailer. so i need alot of space. we normally would park at the first gate at the end of the main road. or is that area full on the week ends. anything will help. thanks B) B)

new thread... good idea. it is sometimes packed on the weekends, but i have never had a problem parking. just make sure you don't park in a place that allows you to get blocked in. that makes it hard for you to leave and get to the Cracker Barrel across the street for dinner. :D i have parked on both ends. usually i park in the back because we do more riding back there on the hill climbs and trails. they have just dragged the road so it is not as hard on your truck. i like the weekends because you see all kinds of crazy rides and meet some interesting people. like last month... these young kids got their blaster stuck in "florida quick sand". then they take their low rider chevy s10 into the woods with some tie downs to pull it out. i couldn't watch. when they came back, they were missing half of their ground effects but they got their quad back.

my friend has a seven yr old son, so we usually go during the week. that way he can learn without worrying about the higher traffic. but i like the weekend entertainment.

the best way to put it is like this... if you ask for attention, you will get their FULL attention. i have never had an encounter with rangers myself. if your riding w/o a helmet, have someone on your handlebars, are screaming down the service road, or just being a [email protected] in general, they will stop you and give your bike a good once over while your getting chewed. but i have never seen a spot inspection in the park or at the gate. as a matter of fact, they don't like to come out of their air conditioned booth when you drive in. my fatboy4 is pretty loud, but i do have my spark arrester in place. i keep the sparky in as a personal preference and my spark arrester is huge anyway. i have seen plenty of bikes w/o them and the rangers don't bother anyone. i wouldn't worry about it if i were you. there are always plenty of morons around to keep the rangers busy.

i brought my FL title and registration, but i think all you need is your registration since it has the title number printed on it. the bikes have to be registered if florida resident. otherwise, bring out of state title.

The gate is open 24 hours. The Ranger is there 8am to 5pm. If you have never been there and you arrive when the shack is closed. You must go back in the AM and get your decal.
