9:30am, bikes start gathering:





Pre-ride briefing



Rainer takes a picture of my shiny forehead.



Fast group decides against 429 / E-pass side



Look, BMW riders with a camera!



We split into three groups. Rainer took the GS riders out first. He had around a dozen bikes or so. Even a KLR! I was envious.

The Sport riders followed me out next. There were 20+ bikes behind me. Mark was on his LT with us. He can ride that thing like the devil's behind him. A few VFR’s, a Multi-Strada, a Buell, and a Sprint were along for the ride too. Everyone’s welcome!

My wife, Cherie, lead the touring group out last. I think there were more than a dozen bikes in her group. A Harley was along with here group to I think.

The Sports ride was very spirited. Shelley was working very hard on her F650 to keep up with us. We took a couple extra roads than the Touring group, and then arrived at a resting spot behind them. They had great fun teasing us about arriving after them.



Telling tall tails!



The VFR guys!



My people are calling me!



We wish you could have made the ride!



Wanted in 11 states for Traffic violations!

While we were keeping an eye out for sand in the corners, the GS Group was having a blast in the sand!

How did the KLR get in the front?



Hurry up guys!







Nice shot here!





Stunning day! The weather could not have been better!

This is minutes from Disney!





GS’s Rock!



Really, this is Central Florida. Just minutes from Downtown Orlando.


I slowed down a little in the second half of the ride due to anticipated LEO activity on 535. Sure enough, there was a young girl on a Ninja getting a ticket at 535 and Apopka Vineland. I felt for her; however, she had the deputy’s attention, so………. we opened it up a little on Palm Pkwy. The tourist kindly moved out of our way. The Sports Group arrived back at Panera’s first. Followed not too far behind by the Touring group.



RT-P bikes!



Multi-Strada & K1200R

The whole event was planned around the street riders getting back first. So, we went in and ordered. Then we sat outside, had lunch, told a few lies, and waited for the dirt riders. And waited. And waited. Told a few more lies. And waited. Then they showed up.


Dakar!



Good planning bringing a co-pilot to help pick up the Adventure!



1150 GS’s!



1200GS’s!



Smiles & Thumbs!




A great day for a ride in Central Florida! Thanks for attending everyone!
