Hey Mike, If you (and anyone else that this route makes sense for) haven't locked in your route to Alachua for the start of the ride, this is an excellent one from where you are (145 miles)I put the route in the GPS and the ride on the calendar. See y'all there and Merry Christmas!
As you're almost to alachua, the speed limit will drop to 55 then 45 as you go up and over a two lane and a railroad track on an overpass. On the other side look up the side hill on the right and there will be a convenience store gas station followed by a several business building. Browns Country Restaurant is up there.I will be coming from Ocala, What are the landmarks for the starting point when I am headed North on 441?????
Astor, where SR40 crosses the St. Johns river. (roughly midway between Ocala and Ormond Beach) It's a get-together/RTE put on by the Concours Owners Group. Strommers and Coggers blend nicely, I think you would enjoy it. See below, as taken from their forum:OK, where is Blackwater Inn?
Note: that the Blackwater ride is more of a Ride-To-Eat. I am not aware of a ride heading out of there before or after the gathering. You are of course welcome and I'm aware of 7 non concours riders coming from as far as savannah. I believe a post said last year had 40 or 50 folks show up. Maybe some pick up a ride after, I don't know as I have not attended a previous one.Well, rides two days in a row are a real tough sell at my house, but I can probably do one of them. I'm leaning towards the Blackwater ride, if they'll have me. It starts closer to home, and I don't do much riding in that area.
Dave,Is it OK to have a friend tag-along that does not have a V-Strom?
