Wankers do it Barber style!

Ok,
Lets get this Shindig together! All welcome! Well just about all, if you are a sensitive type, get sand in your mangina easily, have an issue with Wheelies, making fun of alone another, offended by Adult language....you may not be ready for this ride!

So far DRZ has booked us a killa place about 40 miles outside of Birmingham.
Split the costs equally for the accomodation. BYOB & pay for your own Hookers!
So far:
PK
Jaydee
Brewmann
Johnny Africa
Scott J
Sfront
Jerry D
Ginger Beard
Clark Millerman
Clark M Trials bike
DRZ
Motomike

Give or take 500 mile ride...leave early from Awful House on SR50 6-30am, thinking primarily on pavement...we need to keep a faster pace to get there at a decent time. Stop for lunch/ any issues we could be there late. I know we had an offroad added...however we may need to reconsider the offroad section ???
What say ye Wankers?

A 500 mile day is probably gonna require staying on the slab. Not necessarily interstate, but pavement none the less. Unless of course the dirt road knocks a chunk of time off.....

Is anybody else considering purchasing tickets beforehand or just winging it?

https://events.cuetoems.com/bvf_2014...cketSales.aspx

As per any other Wanker event I have participated, I have already set my expectations low as there will be little to no organization, many u-turns & expletatives hurled, possibly kicked, broken & fallen motorcycles, and finally general butt-hurtedness.

Should be a good time.

Just let Eloy lead the group and all is well. The Southern Dual Sport Loopers can attest to his leadership abilities.

Leading ain't the problem..herding Cats ain't easy...even for Dr. Zeee.

I say we take the back roads on pavement....too many miles too little time.

John G is also in...he's in CO right now...but he is in!

Well, I was always about 50 miles from somewhere.

And... I usually got us there before midnight.

Cat herding you say... we can probably hit a chinese buffet for some helpings of rat & cat.

Paved back roads works for me. Route can be adjusted based on time.

No. Just one less thing to deal with. If you get there early enough doesn't matter but if you get there late morning it can be a cluster.

As far as the route...Just my 2 cents, but I would think we would want to get as far north as we can in as little time as possible to get at the good stuff in GA and AL…not screw around with back roads in Florida we've already ridden….

Mike, is it worth the extra $10 to get that ticket to the club area or whatever it is ?

I understand wanting to get the fuck out of Fl ASAP but seriously I-75? Not worth saving an hour. I guess it's no different than taking the auto train to Va. and then interstate to Tellico.
It was suggested 1st meetup Awaffle house near Croom but being dark thirty Istachatta and Gobbbler won't be any fun. Most everyone has done that stretch at least once anyways.
Looking at the map Inverness may be the best for the first meetup. It's about 1.5 hours from the bay area, Haines City, Orlando, and Deland.
Second meetup at first gas stop.

I agree with this post. I will probably meet you guys in Dunnellon where you take a left on 40 and head towards Goeth. I will be there early and ready to roll out, with a full tank of gas.

There always has to be one that thinks He rates a special stop. Bring your happy ass 17 miles south and meetup with everyone else.
