What a great weekend!

It started a bit early with the arrival of cousin I had not seen in many years. Kurt was in CFL to get his airplane float rating arriving from Homer, AK. I ask him if he can ride a motorcycle and if he wanted to join in on ride, little did he know it was a wanker ride

Kurt on the venerable Funduro


Turns out he had never been on anything over a 125! Didn't matter, he made it down the road from my house, we call it funtime, mostly sand.

We meet up with The Z's at the pavement section of funtime and were off.

Making good time to Arcadia until JD spots some oranges in a curve. Takes one hell of fall. Oranges 1, JD 0


Were's the f'n peg, Oranges 2, JD -1


DM looking over JD's glasses he stepped on while trying to help


JD is up and about, now to figure out how to get a working peg, sounds familiar


Back under way and we arrive in Arcadia



More to come

Good stuff but try to cut the humor it hurts when I laugh.

I rode up to Arcadia from Naples to meet everyone for the ride to Everglades City. On my way up 31 I saw these fellows in a pasture and it warranted a turn-around for a photo opp.


Once in Arcadia having located the proper gas station I found these guys, and gals!





We really needed some mud to break in this new paper tag, but none was to be found.



We finished the day off with a great meal in Everglades City under a full moon.





I look forward to the next meeting with all of you!

After a short jaunt, we are in Everglades City, ready for stone crab.


Stone crab and assorted other crustaceans were consumed. It was great to meet everyone. On to loop rd. where this unsuspecting gator got the wanker treatment


Dade Corners break, just in time to see em shut down the place due to a "burning fuse". Must have been lost in translation.


Finally arrived at Casa Sanders around 11 pm, followed by quite the party

Think I hit the sack about 2 while others imbibed in to the wee hours. The result:


Breakfast yum

I know for a fact that this gator is at least $5 richer than he was before we got there!!!

Delicate Man just about worn out...I'll introduce him to a 5 hour energy at Dade Corners..



Paula and "Don't you dare post this picture" Alice.........right.
All cleaned up after someone dumped her in the sand........


I got up relatively early and was headed north but stopped to say goodbye to everyone.......
Some were still sleeping........




I had a great time.
Bike ran flawlessly, and it never hit the ground.
Now I just have to clean her and do a little maintenance.
Next up, Durhamtown!
Rest up Dr.Z, rest up.

Thumb A few pics!

A few too many Margarita's, Kamikaze's, Stella's, and a head cold = rough day on Sunday!

The ride and the camaraderie were 1st class though.

Steve will most likely wind up on the chit list with the wifey for posting that pic. You've been warned, Wanker!

Here's some pics...

Jaydee's mishap. A little birdie told me he was coming in on a 15mph curve at about 60, got skeered of an ernge, and dropped the Dirt Ninja but only after a triple somersault with a backflip to land a sub par 3. wankers aren't allowed to score 10s on the count of it would require too much effort





DM decided to step on and break Jaydee's glasses due to the sub par score...



No worries, out came a set of John Lennon spectacles... fook, a couple of celebs did come on the ride... first it was Jack Black & now John Lennon came back from the dead



We're off again to meet the rest of the crew at the Arcadia Hess...





Arrival at about 10:45am in true wanker Cuban time style...





Sanjoh striking a pose...



A few of the other wankers along for the ride... Rob (aka Head)...



Steve (sfront)...



Pit stop along the route... some mechanical difficulties separated part of the group at this point. We waited for a while. Larry played a pickup B-ball game with the d00d whose yard we parked in front of... in his MX boots no less.





Rendezvous point at Rib City in Immokalee...











Pics at the end of Oil Well Grade road... i had to lay 'er down at about 5mph due to the deep sand I don't think there were any pics soooo... it may not have happened. I also got the opportunity to flip Bruce off as I passed him.





Arrival at the squares...

















Kyle led a ride after this point through a nice trail to the first bridge. Some of you FFs missed it. pussies

Sorry, no pics of Jane's Scenic (to busy trying to avoid all the f'n potholes). That road seems to have been in worse shape than when we rode it in April.

Only pic that came out on Loop road... at night...



Loop road at night with a full moon was awesome!

After loop road, we parted ways. Some headed West and a few towards the East. We arrived at Paula & John's at about 10pm, drank until 5am i think... i don't quite remember.

Left Sunday around 11am and arrived at about 8pm. There was an issue with a KTM that took a few hours to resolve.

Had a great time. Hope to do it again soon.

The moon on loop road was amazing!

Steve getting ready to head home


JD surprised his boot still fit, wondering where his smokes went


Damn look whos up (physically that is)


Getting ready to hit the road






And then the KTM bug bit. Clicky only, no start


Get it started and a few blocks down the road to the gas station and it begins to overheat, puking gas er I mean coolant DM assumes the position.


While others are deep in thought, who woulda thunk concrete could be so comfortable.


JD n I head off to find a battery, which we do, but it is the wrong size We get the battery straightened out with Paula's help and head outta town towards Clewiston where we ate lunch or dinner can't remember, some great burgers and refreshments at Roland Martins tiki bar.

After a few twists and turns we arrive at Casa sanjoh where the KTM is promptly but in it's place.


The weather was stellar all weekend, the company unsurpassed (even DM is coming around), thanks for a great time you wankers n bean flickers

Mrs.Z doesn't seem too impressed with your sand skillz
but who am I to talk smack



I should have double checked DM's strapping of the beast. Notice how it is on the center stand, straps straight down, and no front wheel chock. I started noticing a bang taking off from a stop so I checked it out when we found a safe place to stop. All straps loose and 2.5 ft skid marks on the trailer deck from the Scorpions sliding back and forth. How it didn't take a nap I'll never know.
Must be my excellant driving style

I believe only a couple of peeps turned around on Oil Well Grade and they weren't riding 2 up.

Sounds like typical Jaydee to me
