August 19, 2006 V-Strom Ride

I've got a ride laid out for August 19. Who's interested?

Starting and ending point will be San Antonio Park, where we started from once before. It's just off Hwy 52 in San Antonio, FL, and the coordinates are N28 20.150 W82 16.341.

We'll wind our way over to Tarpon Springs and have lunch at Hellas Restaurant, 785 Dodecanese Blvd, which is close to the water.

The entire trip is 93 miles. Plan to leave at 10am, and we should be rolliing into lunch just before noon. We'll be done with the ride about 3pm.

The GPS route for Garmin's is at www.louwhitney.com/V-Strom_Aug19_06.zip

I pre-ran it last Sunday, and I think you'll like it.

The following are planning to ride:

Motoxusa
Jet Jaquar
RodK
SteveC
DanW
JackS
FrankO
Mike

I'm also up for a ride. Count me in.

It's not an adventure unless you need a tent, a passport, and a leather glove for your shooting hand.

Looking forward to seeing you guys. Looks like 8 riders so far. Should be a good ride, especially with the 10am start.

If it were the 26th instead of the 19th, I'd be all over it.

However, on the 19th, I have to work.

ride

How far away is the ride from Jacksonville Florida.Might see if I can get a motel in a close town to be fresh for the ride if nothing else comes up.

Magblast...it's about 180 one way from Jacksonville to the starting point in San Antonio, FL. The closest town with motels is probably Dade City, which is only a few miles from San Antonio on Hwy 52. It's definitely an overnighter from Jacksonville. We've got a few regular V-Strom riders in the Jacksonville area, and will probably be organizing a ride in that neck of the woods before too long. We'd loveto have you, but certainly understand if you take a pass this time.

Great fun! Thanks Lou. That was some killer Souvlaki for lunch. I vote for myself as the wettest guy on the way home. Mike and I had outrun the storm all the way to Plant City then it came down. I had a good 30-45 minutes to go.

After the Moto GP run on Bayhead, I was reminded of our Hernando/Citrus ride. We'll have to do that again soon :shock:
