Florida RTE January 8th River Ranch

Lets start the new year with a nice ride, some lunch and a lot of smiling faces.
This is the weekend before the winter rally, so y'all bundle up, plug in those electrics and....
Ride to eat, greet and meet your forum friends and fellow riders
All makes of bikes (with mufflers) are once again invited to attend the Fifth annual Florida RTE

At the River Ranch Resort, high noon,


Saturday January 8th 2011

We've had a real good turn out the past four years at the River Ranch Resort,

there's plenty of room and the River Ranch seemed to be more than adequate
and centrally located enough to attract riders from both coasts

so let's "do it again"


Quote:
here are some directions to the River Ranch Resort
3200 River Ranch Blvd.
River Ranch, FL 33867

From the Florida Turnpike,
take exit 193 at Yeehaw Junction, go 21 miles west toward Lake Wales or S.R. 60.

If you're coming from the west coast,
take U.S. 27 to Lake Wales and go 25 miles east on S.R. 60.



The main gate is at. Lat/Lon 27-48-299 - 081-13-183


So lets get that (planning to attend) list started (please copy & paste)

Re: Florida RTE January 8th River Ranch

I've been up in SC for the holidays and it's snowing this morning! Just thinking about the RTE next Saturday, when the weather is supposed to be in the high 60's is enough to warm me up.

We should be out in the rain, slush and snow tomorrow on our wat back to Florida. Kinda glad we're in the SUV.

Looking forward to seeing everyone next Saturday....

Re: Florida RTE January 8th River Ranch

Been debating this event for a while. Since moving it's now a 4 1/2 hour ride and the weather is always a question. (Yea, I'm gett'n OLD!). Anyway, unfortunately found out a couple of days ago that a good friend of ours passed away and there's a Memorial Service for him in Orlando the afternoon of the 8th. So, since we have to be down that way we'll make a day of it and get down there for lunch. Of course, under the circumstances we'll be in in MINI COOPER and not on the LT. Look forward to see'n all ya'll.

I'm not sure how to "break it to you" Lynn
but it's way past "gett'n" ........ you've "been" OLD for quite a spell now!
We're all glad to hear you'll make it and we don't care "how" you get there, it's still (technically) a Beemer!

Looking forward to meeting you Fred and Linda,
any relation to Dave Swisher?

No direct relationship with Dave Swisher.

I came last year with my daughter and sat at the end of the table (I am the one with his back to the picture).

Re: Florida RTE January 8th River Ranch

Just to let everyone know after lunch Dan , Lee & I are riding to St. Cloud to do a Brake,ABS & Clutch system flush on Dan's bike. I have everything to do flushes on 1999 to 2004 LT's. I should have time to do one more before dark if anyone is interested. If you want to come & just watch or hang out that's fine as well. The only thing I don't have is the DOT 4 brake fluid.

Re: Florida RTE January 8th River Ranch

It pains me to do this, but after laying out the details, I'm afraid I'm not going to be able to make lunch tomorrow. The logistics, and time required to travel from NE Florida to St Cloud to drop off the dog and then on to River Ranch followed by a ride back to St Cloud to my daughters house to clean up and dress for an early afternoon Memorial Service in Orlando are unmanageable. YEA, I guess you were correct Hans. I'm not getting OLD, I've arrived. Anyway, I'll miss having the opportunity to visit and break bread with ya'll. Here's wishing you all good weather, great fellowship and a safe ride.

Cheers,
Lynn

Orlando/Oviedo group ride to the RTE?

I believe that Jon & Susan (aka jdsd-tourteam) and I are going to team up and ride from Orlando with a friend of mine on his "red-wing"

Anyone else interested in meeting in Oviedo / Orlando or somewhere in between and the RTE site?s

Re: Florida RTE January 8th River Ranch

Well our 7 year old son opted to go to a friends birthday party which works out well because Patti had her gallbladder removed on Wednesday and is not up for riding her own. So for the first time in a long time I will be riding 2 up with the wife. Looking forward to lunch weather looks like it will be great!

Good meeting you all today. Thanks Hans for setting up this RTE. The place was great and the food was good also.I guess I need to change my profile now that we moved back to Largo.

Re: Florida RTE January 8th River Ranch

I just back (about 7:30PM) after a stop in St. Cloud. I got to watch Dave who joined us from NC, change the clutch and brake fluids in my K1200LT in about an hour and a half.

He really took the mystery out of it and did a super job on my bike.

Dave, Thanks again and Hans, thanks for coordinating the RTE. It really was a nice afternoon and the weather was great. Mid 70's and light wind.... I'm guessing that around 30 people attended. It really was a nice afternoon....

Re: Florida RTE January 8th River Ranch

Lee & I got back about 4:30. I had a wonderful time & the food was great again. Temps. in the 70s & I enjoy riding the back roads in central Florida. The lack of very many curves lets me enjoy looking at the scenery in the country . We saw a armadillo moving along the side of the road. Maybe a few more of these & I'll be able to remember more names . Thank's Han's for throwing this together every year . We were able to get Dan's fluid flush done well before dark with the help from everyone else that followed us to St. Cloud . The high temp riding back today was 42f when we left St. Cloud. Once we got rolling it was in the mid 30s all the way home. I hope to see everybody again next year .

Thanks again Hans, another great turnout and learned a few more names and faces.

Fred, I'll be up in Deland (doing 160-way skydives) the middle of April and will try to get by one morning. Food sounded real good. Thanks for sharing the info and nice to see you again...

There have been several recalls and the motor blew up, but other than that, it's been perfect....

I was just curious...I was at a fund raiser/dinner a few weeks ago,and was sitting next to a guy who claimed to be the factory rep for this area. He had a few drinks in him (ok, more than a few) and he was going on and on about how many problems those things have, they have electrical gremlins, he delivered one and the motor blew up when the guy was driving it home, etc...I just couldn't believe my ears at what I was hearing. I thought I might ask an owner.

I guess I never expected them to have so many problems.

Re: Florida RTE January 8th River Ranch

You Florida folks are really starting to get on my nerves. Snowing here all day. No RTE. Matter of fact no ride at all. Lt is polished, buffed and ready for when the roads clear. And by that I mean after we have had a good rain and all the chemicals that have been applied to the roads are washed away. It's bad enough that my black car is now white.

Just what Dave said. Just keep an eye on the weather for your ride home. Even one day of warm weather riding is worth it for me .

Re: Florida RTE January 8th River Ranch

Thanks for the invite. Problem is, right now it is 21 degrees and there is snow on the side streets. On the main roads there is so much of whatever it is the city spreads around that I wouldn't ride for fear of ruining the LT.
My black X3 is white.

Re: Florida RTE January 8th River Ranch

And to get to FL from KY, you would need to go through north Georgia, which currently is one big sheet of ice and in the 20's. Not great riding.

If it makes you feel better is was 36 degrees this AM all the way down to South FL....but it should be mid 60's by this afternoon.

Re: Florida RTE January 8th River Ranch

At 10:00 AM it is 20 degrees, cloudy and spitting snow. I think I'll just leave the LT parked in the garage for now. Cold I can handle. Snow, ice and salt, no so much.

We should plan on getting together for all you can eat pancakes, there are a couple of BMW riders from the Tampa area that ride over every Friday morning early to be there when they open up for breakfast (~8:15 AM), I get every other Friday off and try to join them.
