Strommer hospitality wanted April 3rd - 8th

Dear Florida Strommers,

I wil be in Jacksonville Saturday April 3rd through Thursday April 8th with my V-strom and would like to hook up with some of you Florida strommers on one of these days or evenings for a ride. Perhaps a bike night? or maybe some of you could lead me through some of your good riding areas? or both? I'll be happy to return the favor in Michigan sometime...My riding style is sensible. I'm not a daredevil, high speed curve taker or wheelie popper.


Thanks in advance,

Michiganstromrider

Most of us that post regularly in the Florida group are from central Florida. There are a couple members from North Fla. That being said, we could set up a rte up in the North and welcome you to Fl. None of us need much of an excuse for a ride.
What part of the state is Hillsdale? I just completed a Soo to Toledo transverse of michigan back in September. I also grew up in the Thumb and have many relatives there. Curt

Hillsdale is in southern michigan pretty much in the center of the State. Toledo would be about a 2 hour drive south from Hillsdale. Thanks for working on rounding up some interest for a northern florida ride. I look forward to it. I have ridden Florida before but didn't really know the roads and areas well enough to find some nice scenic routes. Sunday April 4th will be the best day on my end for a nice day long ride. If there is a bike night during the week I would enjoy doing that also. I'll keep tight to this thread.

Thanks again...

Hi Michiganstromrider. I used to travel to Coldwater on business a couple of times a week and would travel through your city regularly. That's a pretty part of the state.

Rte Sunday Apr 4.

How about a ride to eat on Sunday Apr. 4 at the Dam Diner on County Road 464C at the crossing for the Ocklawaha River. We can send MichiganStromRider a proposed route that he can take from Jax. Check new thread under the name Dam Diner RTE. Curt

Crap

Crap,

I didn't realize that the 4th was Easter Sunday. Probably not a good day for everyone to take off on their families. Any thoughts? Perhaps one day or evening during the week might be better? I checked out the damn diner thread.

Damn Dinner Rte

I can make Saturday the 3rd. Lets try this instead. The Damn Diner Rte thread appears to be the more active discussion on this. Post there.

3rd

I agree that the 3rd will be best. I will be down visiting my daughter and would hate to skip out on her on easter Sunday. She wants to fix a big meal and all that. Living in Michigan I don't see her often enough as it is.
