Osceola Forest

Has anyone ridden the Osceola forest trails? I heard they were dirt versus sand like Ocala. Would they be suitable to ride the Strom on or are they too technical and more suited for a motocross bike.

Also been wondering this..Ive only rode the Ocala and Tiger Bay Trails. Tiger Bay was much more dirt than sand.

Well if makes you feel better, I only laughed a little...Looks like we both need to invest in some knobbies. I haven't gone down too much with the Battlewings that come on the Vee2 *knocks on wood* I've been looking into the Shinko 804s

Bumping this. If youi are in the Jacksonville/St Augustine area, I recently joined River City Dirt Riders. Its a private 500 acre property with single track, ATV trails, fire roads and a peewee track. I'd love some other Stroms to join so we can get some dirt experience together (meaning you help me pick my bike up, I help you pick yours up)

Guess that answers my question -- it's all sugar sand @ Gainesville and Ocala -- where to ride offroad?

I had the chance to move to Boulder for a job about 7 years ago, but I didn't do it. It's been booming ever since! Nature sure is nice, but not sure I could afford living there.
