May is full of out of state riding so it looks like June is on tap for the next
M&G. Somebody want to step up? Everybody can post which weekends are the best for them, who wants to ride and what area they want to ride.


PS: there is always a queen waterbed for the southern or nothern vistors that need a lay over, the charge is quite fair, a cold beer and good conversation.

I myself is heading up to the Gap during June but that won't stop me from riding with you guys, hopefully.

Again we need to address the T-Shirt questions.
Check out T-shirt on my site below, it is "Motorcycle, Cars and Boats"

Hi bro, glad to have you aboard.
We try to do these once a month to once every other month.
But they are always posted weeks before. We try to do most in the Central part of the state so more riders can attend.
Some riders trailered down just to do the 100 mike ride and have a beer with us and trailer back the next day.
Just where in the Panhandle are you located?
I might be up your way around the 19 of May for a softball tournament, no bike but I can still drink a beer.

Hope you can make it down for a ride soon.

Really cool shirt, but Lou Whitney did all the design. If we could get about 24 sold we could get a reasonable cost on the shirt.
We just need to how many to order, what color of shirt, long or short sleeve that everyubody wants before we do anything.

Hey guys!!! Who's hosting the June ride? I'd imagine I could twist Mike's arm and we could do something in the west/central part of the state again.

I have obligations later in June so the earlier the better.

Looks like it has been a slow month on the "Florida Troopers" board, Hope all is well with everybody.
Softball has taken lots of my time lately but the good news we have played well with 2 tournaments wins and a couple of seconds. Never the less I miss our rides.
I play this weekend and the last weekend on this month in Marietta GA, so the week before Marietta GA I going to spend that week in the Smokys, kinda killing two joys with one trip.

Anybody up for a midweek ride just hollar, maybe we could do something June 17th, maybe around Micanopy Fl, just south of Gainsville Fl on US301, great roads heading south to Ocala and then to "Gators On the River" (just off Hwy 42) for lunch. Start at 11am and finishing around 3pm. OR finish at my house for drinks and burgers and a swim.

Any interest just post and we can see if we can get 4 or 5 bikes.

JUst a though, any other ideas?

I'm OK with that, Charlie. The earlier the better. Beating the heat and the rain is never a bad thing.

A buddy of mine with an 1150GS will also be able to come along with me, if that's cool with everyone.

Man, all my fault. Wife said she told me that my daughter was getting married on the 17th. I just don't remember.
I don't see where it is a big thing, after all she is 33 and done this 3 times before. You would think she knows how it is done and doesn't need daddy around. But to keep love from the wife in my life, I must slide out of the ride.
Maybe a later date in July.
