Probably Head out of Orlando early Friday afternoon in the cage and trailer and park it somewhere off I-10. Ride Saturday and Sunday.

I currently live in South Alabama but grew up about 10 miles from Cheaha. I can plot you a pretty good route from just north of Mobile to Cheaha and back. Evergreen to Cheaha is 3 hours +/-.

You're welcome to park your cage and trailer at my place if needed. I'm less than a mile off I-65, 95 miles north of Mobile.

I wasn't thinking of going that far west more like starting in Dothan or Eufaula Al.

Gotcha. US 431 north from Dothan will get you to Cheaha as well and is a great ride.

Something like this route. Got a cheap fish camp motel in Eufaula for $40 a night and another $40 one near DeSoto Sate Park both have good reviews. Should be a good w/e on the cheap if any of you FF wants to join us.
You got to zoom out to see the route for some reason

Thumb

Inside plants outside for their dose of sunshine, water, and fresh air!
Lawn just mowed.
Called, met, interviewed, and hired a nice young man to do the edging and weed-whacker work (I hate doing that). Helix and Transalp into the man shed for some time on the battery tender.
Man cave emptied out for the boys arrival Tuesday (it can be double-timed as an efficiency apartment ;-)
Not much else to do other than a vacuum and a run to the grocery store for man vittles. ..Maybe tomorrow?
Hope the sweatless fest is going up on cam and discharging appropriately.
Good bunch of fellows.
More to do here.
Thanks Vic!

You dont quit riding when you get old, you get old when you quit riding.
I don't always ride street bikes, but when I do I prefer VStroms

Old Huskys

I seem to remember owning a 250 Husky with RIGHT foot shift. Is this right. I know I had a Bull and a Carabella with right foot shift but I do remember my first husky as being right foot. Anyone? Anyone?
