Ok, guys we let the trip to Saint Augustine fall apart but that is history. Its time to set up another ride. I'm open to any ideas. Clem mentioned a trip to the panhandle a while back. We still could run to Saint Augustine, Any other ideas? We've done nothing since Christmas. I'll do the grunt work but I need ideas. Bikeweek is coming up soon. Maybe a RTE on one of the Saturdays over there. Curt

Lots to see and do, and good eats along the beach

Bikeweek

Bikeweek is coming up soon.
:thumbup:

I was wondering if Stomtroopers wanted to meet-up somewhere around Daytona during Bikeweek? Socialize and have a show of force. I'm
going over for a couple of days.

I'll be there on the 6th, weather permitting, and trying to get there early enough to score a demo ride at the track. I'm cool with lunch but I'm no expert on Daytona eateries. Last year I ate at an Uno's Pizza across the street from the track but someone else may have a better suggestion.

Maybe troopers should meet and park at the Suzuki area at the track. Hopefully Suzuki will be making an appearance. They and other manufacturers were missing at Biketoberfest last year.

Bike week

meeting at the suzuki tent sounds like a good Idea. Im planning on being there between 7 and 7:30am. I also want to sign up for a couple of rides. In October, Clem, Patricia and I ate t a Checkers across from the track. Im also not an expert as to what is in Daytona. Curt

We will be leaving St. Pete very early for that those that want to ride to "get there" say 5am.

Clem, are you riding through or near Clermont on the way? We could meet up if you want.

meet up

Greg, If we leave Seffner at 5:30, we should be at the US 27-I4 intersection about 6:10 or 6:15. Does that work as a meet point? Curt

Hey Bob. If you needed a place to stay in the Clermont area you could crash at my townhome.

+1 on the mosquito bites. :mrgreen:

Watch yer langwidge!

... in the Clermont area you could crash at my townhome. ...
Um, perhaps a well-traveled youngster like yourself could apply a more propitious verb???

I hope I will be free to participate in this expedition, and the more conversation there is, the more appealing I find it.

All the asphalt and surrounding structures are very soft and forgiving in Clermont (Jewel of the Hills), so we rarely use our side stands, but rather elect to drop our bikes wherever we stop. This has three positive effects:
1) Picking up your bike builds up your leg and back muscles
2) Side stands last much longer than the average motorcycle side stand
3) Keeping your bike on the ground doesn't interfere with the beautiful views

With all those considerations in mind, the use of crash is a very favorable verb for the situation although I commend you on working the word propitious into a motorcycle website. :hurray:
:mrgreen:

I had to look that one up. Always like to learn. Still love the star education I received from Professor Keith while at Flamingo. Bob
