OK, so I am expanding my BIKE WEEK TENT CITY MOTEL program to open on the 8th of March.

Rather than drive 90 miles to a 200 mile cruise I booked my KOA campsite from Friday thru bike week and back again...

This is the KOA on NOVA Rd, I need a bunch of partners to help cover the cost. Just think... you can wake Saturday with a short drive to the starting point and then stager back to the campsite Sunday and leave in time for work on Monday! See how easy that is?

If you want to be there for all of bike week that's great. I have two guys partnering on the last Thursday and Friday nights already. If you keep your hands to yourself you can share my tent.

Visa/MC/DISC accepted. we do PayPal also.

The campsite has water and elect. I will have wifi there.

The 400's rear sprocket should make it.

Guess that's it. After having to kiss Brewman's Butt for my fail last time I'm sensitive to being called Kitty. JA also called a pussy on the phone yesterday when I called him about a job over here. YFF's are out to see me crippled.
Thankfully I have TRUE friends that are telling me to stay close to the scrub

The front page has been updated with some more details regarding places to stay. We also have the targeted starting and finishing areas. We have been working the route sheets and everything looks to be coming along nicely.

The plan is to meet at the starting area along A1A at 8:00 ish to hand out the route sheets and get the folks registered in the different classes for the "Big Game".
If you are coming with trailers, the best place to park and leave them is likely the Publix shopping center at I-95 and S. Old Dixie Hwy exit (eastside of 95). Then ride your bike to the starting area at the beach, which is just a few miles from there.


The riders meeting will be at 8:30am with everyone to start shortly there after.

This weekend we will be trying to line up Party central in Cedar Key I will try and take some new pictures.

I did the last one in 2010 on my 525, 2 days 350+ miles of real Florida sand....

And I also got my luggage back.

How would Michelin Pilot 2's on an FZ1 handle this route? Are there any bypasses of the deeper sand for the more street oriented bikes? Some of the pics look like hardpack, but I KNOW pics are deceiving. Cheers....................and J Africa FYYCFF!!!

Jerry, I've done lots of sand on Michelin Pilots (1 and 2) on my r1100s, but the deep stuff will get you in trouble if you aren't carrying sufficient speed.
What also got me on some of the "off road" sections is the lack of suspension travel and the fact street bikes tend to have low clearance.

Although I haven't seen it, I am sure the route will have many detours, sans cutting through the middle of the Ocala National Forrest. There is lots of pavement in this part of the country.

I say go for it, you get my respect if you take her through some challenging sections. Hell, I've been on my S and watched the big boys eat it on a GS. A skilled rider can do a lot with any machine, and the converse also applies!!

Actually going to meet up with you guys in Cedartown and ride home with J Africa. Work and family obligations have conflicted with the ride. So Michelin Pilots vs sand on another day.

No ballet this time. That does however look like my dates toes at the end of the evening! Maybe that should be the new Wanker logo. After all, once they have been with an original Wanker their toes will stay on point.

I need to work and will shoot up after that to meet up with you guys Saturday. What time do you think everyone will be rolling in Saturday?
Cheers.
