Join us at the Cubi Bar Cafe saturday may 19th at noon. The location is at www.navalaviationmuseum.org in Pensacola Florida. This is the home base for the Blue Angels. If you want to get there early in the week they have there practice on tue & wed. I plan on having a guided group tour of the museum so I will need a head count a few weeks out

I'll be riding down on friday. Any recommendations on motels near the museum ?. I'll be calling motels in the next few days to get something set up.

You will need to go to the web site & look up the requirements to ride a motorcycle on the base to the museum or I'll post them later.

Enjoy The Ride, Dave Selvig :bike:

Looking forward to see you again Steve. :wave

To ride to the museum you will need a minium of Long sleeve shirt, Long pants, Helmet, Gloves, & Hard sole shoes.

There are two places to stay on the base if you are a Veteran.

The Navy Lodge 850-456-8676 and Gateway 850-452-2756

Riding farther on the base will probably require more gear. I called the base motorcycle safety number (850-452-3674) & the voice box is full.

Here are two motels about 6 miles from the base. They are within walking distance to restaurants & the rates are from $70 & up

Quality Inn, 3 New Warrington Rd. 850-455-3233

Super 8 Hotel, 5 North New Warrington Rd 850-457-7277

I plan on arriving around 3:00 pm so I can enjoy some cold beverages pool side before walking to dinner. :D

Which Hotel are you staying at Dave?
I'm leaning towards the Quality Inn. I'm hoping someone will jump in with a recommendation. I'll probably only wait a week. because lot of the hotels already don't have that many rooms available.

Count me (and Jean) in for this Dave. I still need Florida and Jean needs a warmup ride before we both head to Duluth for the scouting trip Memorial day weekend.

Dave, I will try to make this ride as this is one of my favorite museums.
Type NAS Pensacola, Fl. into Google Maps & you will get a list of motels in the area
as well as a view of the airstation, Museum is mis-labeled as Marine Corps Matainance
Bldg. its the only Bldg. with an F4 on a pedestal out-front on Blue Angels Drive.

That looks like a good one to me too. I like the "out side" access to your room so you can park at your door( if your down stairs).
The link below has all hotels near the base If anyone wants to chime in with a better Hotel.

My first two choices are in a high crime area. I will be staying here www.bestwestern.com/blueangelinn It's on exit seven on Interstate I-10. The price was a little more but I feel it's worth it for a better area.
