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"


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)

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....

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).
