Coast to Coast Recap

Well if you missed it, you missed a really great time. What a fantastic weekend with a great bunch of folks. CruzinAl put together an incredible ride, and I've got to say many roads that I have never been on, including a couple of U turns. (haha). I met a bunch of new folks as well, which made it all the better. Our very own Curt took home the big Kahuna for the weekend! Quick draw Keith pulled a fast one at the Ihop, Thanks Keith! Curt thank you as well. Jim thanks for the Anderson loop ride, the perfect end to the day.

I have always known that strommers are incredible folks.

happy trails,

Clem

That really was a great ride....we've got next year's ride date on the calendar. Thanks for the heads-up on the Russell seat.....I'll e-mail that picture of you guys taken in front of the Winghouse shortly.

Key ingredients

I greatly enjoyed the ride. Thanks to the resourceful parties who made it such fun.

Al designed a swell route, with variety and scenery of many kinds. There was even a HILL! I think Al had it bulldozed up for the occasion.

The leaders that I followed showed skill in following complex directions, and in choosing speeds that even I could handle. Those leaders were Curtis and Clem. I have led two fragments of rides, and I have learned that riding in front is far from easy. Well done, you two.

Thanks

Thanks to all who put this ride together. It was a fantastic route through areas of Florida that I have not experienced before; I had a great time with great people. I am looking forward to next year’s ride.

Yes it was a great day for all. Glad to have been able to meet you wonderful crazy folks. Crazy is a good thing, cuz who else would leave at 4:30 AM to go riding????

The Loop is just a fun ride. I find myself travelling up to the ride every mont or so just to see the changes Mother Nature provides.

Let's plan another get together again soon.

Smile Keith, thanks!!!

Keith, you inspired me to plan a trip like the one you are planning for the upcoming summer. Riding Route 41 from south to north really got me thinking about trip that I want to do.
Get in touch with me about riding thru Chicago on Lake Shore Drive.


My trip that has been brewing in the back of my warped/fertile mind in this. Start in Atlantic City NJ on Route 30, ride it all the way to the west coast and then ride up coast to route 20 and follow it all the way back to Boston. I'm figuring about 6 weeks or so.

Thanks Keith for the "push" to start planning the trip.
