I'll pass the word to the Space Coast BMW Riders group again and hope to meet up with you like we did last year at River Ranch.

I'll give you a count as soon as I can.

No promises, but I will be near the area, so I'm going to try to swing by. We will see how my times goes at BikeToberFest.

Re: Florida RTE Saturday October 18th @ the Redwing restaurant near Groveland

I had forgotten about that being the Biketoberfest weekend,
not sure if that will increase or decrease our attendance numbers?

I'm leaving in the morning for the "Void" rally ending in Lynchburg, VA. If the weather holds I'll be making a run for Bar Harbour but should be back before the 18th so I'll see you there.

In my case, it is working in your favor as I'm in NE Georgia. I suspect that most of all I will want to experience will be accomplished by Sat. morning, when the rest of the herd will most likely arrive. I have a breakfast that morning, then I should be able to make it. That is if I can get my butt moving that early. bgof

Hope to see you there John,

Daytona can be fun but I don't do it anymore,

Won't be able to attend, sorry. Family friend passed and we're having the funeral that day. Previous to that was heading up to Tennessee to get out of Biketoberfest.

If the date does change I'm interested.

See y'all on the next one.

Re: Florida RTE Saturday October 18th @ the Redwing restaurant near Groveland

Wish I could join you'all but I have previously committed to flinging myself out of a airplane. If you pass Zephyrhills look up about 13,500 feet towards the airport and you should see 16 of us holding hands in the air! (not just a guy thing) The one not attached has a camera to prevent the misunderstandings that occurs after the jump on the ground......

Re: Florida RTE Saturday October 18th @ the Redwing restaurant near Groveland

Dan, to each his own, you've got bigger Cajones than I do,

If I had to choose between jumping out of a perfectly good airplane
or having lunch with a few friends,
it would not take me very long to decide.

Be safe, if we see you "falling out of the sky" we'll wave.

We've just moved to Florida. While we love our Aerostitch gear, it does seem a tad warm for Florida weather. Any suggestions on good protective gear that is wearable in Florida?

It has been unseasonably warm down here this fall,
We wear the First Gear Meshtech but there are many other choices available.
There's a "strong possibility"
that there will be a variety of gear "represented" at lunch tommorrow,
looking forward to meeting you.

Speaking for Gail and I...It was a good day. Great food, great company and a nice ride home through the countryside. About 15 folks showed, riding in from all directions. We were too busy yackin' to take pictures.

Re: Florida RTE Saturday October 18th @ the Redwing restaurant near Groveland

I must agree, good people, good food, and good times. Enjoyed meeting some new folks and seeing one that I had met prior. :-)

I got home (to GA) this evening about 7 pm, 1180 miles, 1100 of them smiles. Seems the temps dropped to 56-58 and me in mesh?? Even with an extra layer, still got a bit chilled. Guess I will eventually learn to pack both seasons of gear.

Hope to see some of you this coming weekend. Working on getting out of here.

Re: Florida RTE Saturday October 18th @ the Redwing restaurant near Groveland

Even though (judging by our previous RTE's) attendance numbers were small
we had a very nice time chatting with new and old friends

It was unanimously agreed that we should do this again next month.
Suggestions for a "destination" are welcomed.

We are up in Albany Georgia this morning on our way to the BRP for some "leaf peeping"
When we return I'll try to put something together for November.
