HELP!!!

Hey guys,

A co-worker of Hector's came in to work today and let Hector know that he was trying to sell a Suzuki quad 50cc. So OF COURSE Hector bought it for our son. I am going to get him a helmet and gloves this afternoon BUT one really important question I have is.........Where the hell in Tampa can he ride that thing?!?!?!?!?!?!?

Any suggestions? thanks in advance.

What's that OHV place up the highway on 75? About an hour or so North? I pass it every time I come down and see ATVs, MX bikes being hauled in and out.

That'd be Croom. A great place for 4 wheelers.
You're welcome at the farm too Mercedes if the floods ever dry up.

Well....Andrew rode the 4 wheeler this weekend. Actually Hector and I thought we were going to have to slepp outside. He didn't want to get off of it. He did really good. Tipped it on two wheels once but he saved it. We jsut let him ride it on our street for now (we live on a cul-de-sac) so it was fun for him just to get used to it.

I can't find anywhere for him to ride. All the places from that link look to be for experienced little riders that race and what not.

I think Croom is still your best bet.

Pros: Large park with many places to ride for beginners to experts. Large wooded camping area. Can be very peaceful during the week and it is great to see and meet other ATV riders on the weekends. Mostly woods riding. Weekends can be very busy.

A friend at work goes there and said we may not want to take him there as a begginer. She said its gets really packed! The Ocala park one looks like it might be the one to start with.

the state land is closed to non-reg vehicles which leaves the kids out, there's one...one outdoor park that's always underfire

other than that it's private land and now all the farms are being sold off for townhomes or 'preserved' but the house/barn are torn down within 5-10yrs

it's getting tougher...ny/pa/va/wva/md are lookin better all the time

Yeah, its sucks!!!!!!! We felt so bad for him this weekend.

He could have cared less....he was having the time of his life going up and down the street and making figure eights (actually he drew the numbers 0-9) hehehehe. He would be like "watch guys I can make a 5!! I can make a 9......." But we were like" can you imagine if he had a big open area? he'd really love it". I will search high and low until I find something. Not to worry.

All the way in the back of Croom they have a large fenced in area for little kids only, you can take him there to ride, just need to get an annual pass/sticker.

Cool! Can we go in the fenced area or are there like a million little ATV's zooming around at once? We just want to be able to help him out if he needs it. He was doing donuts on it yesterday. and then he yells out "mom....how do I do a burn-out"? Hector looks over at me and says " he is NEVER getting a sport bike, NEVER"!!!!

Thanks for the info.

Yes, you can go in there with them. Actually, there are 2 fenced in sections side by side. One is just flat and if I remember correctly, the other one has a few small hills and stuff. It's great because they can tear it up and you don;t have to worry about them going off into the woods and taking out a few trees.

Hey James, the 230L is a great bike, I literally ride that thing almost every other day. I take the kids around the neighborhood for rides, ride down to the park, take it out in the woods near our development, run a quick errand, or ride over to a neighbors house. It's not fast, it's nothing spectacular, but it's a fun "play" bike and it's street legal. I guess you would call it a mild Dual Sport! Plus the wife has been riding it all around the neighborhood and this should help her get prepared for venturing out on the open road, some day. It's still bone stock, I haven't done anything to it, I may change the tires someday for something more streetable, like the Bridgestones on the DRZ400, (not the SM) they are Trail Wing 42's. Some guys on other forums (ie: ThumperTalk) want to slam it for not being fast enough, powerful enough, get a "real" bike, etc. But that's not what it is all about, it's a basic do-all transportation vehicle, like an SUV motorcycle.
