    Is this place a restaurant or a grocery store. I've never been in an Earth Fare as I'm afraid the healthy might be contagious.

    You better eat some McDonald's next door before come, to counter the healthy, LOL

    Earth Fare is an American health and wellness supermarket with 46 locations in 9 states throughout the southeast and Midwest United States. It sells natural and organic food informed by a “Food Philosophy” and “Boot List”

    I've spent a lifetime filling this body with alcohol and preservatives so I can live forever. This place sounds a little too scary for me.

    How’s it going fellas? I’ve been creeping in this thread for a while now just to see what it’s all about. My msf instructor told me about the CADS group I recently picked up a 2014 bmw f800gs adventure and love it so far just all my buddies ride either sport bikes or cruisers so I’m trying to find someone to ride in the dirt or sand and maybe pick up a few pointers along the way haha. This past weekend I went out to Amelia island and wiped out in the soft sand atlest 5 times on the bike but it was still pretty awesome. I was about to give up riding in the sand till I saw a older gentleman riding two up go scooting by on a older white bmw and figured if he could do it so could I and pretty much just went for it which paid off I made it out of the soft sand which was a win guess. But yea just wanted to say what’s up and how’s it going and all that. Here’s a pic of the bike also.

    This is posted in the Rockies Flea Market, putting it here in case anyone's interested in a new career in a new place, looks like fun. And another thought, get DavyHauls or someone to bring the operation south for the Winter and make it full time. The guy's name is Ron.

    Going for a road ride on the 1190 in the morning. Anybody is welcome, I know few of you guys have new bikes that are setup for road use, so feel free to join me.

    I am going to have breakfast at the Beach Dinner, 11362 San Jose Blvd, Jacksonville, FL 32223. I am planning on being there at 8:00 and will leave when breakfast is over.

    I don't have a destination picked out, just a meeting place to start the day. If you want some company give me a shout.

    Take the block & tackle from the saddlebag, attach it from the upside triple clamp to a high point on a nearby tree, and then pull?

    You can dig out under the tires a bit to improve the angle.

    Other than that, same technique applies. Put the small of your back on the seat, grab the bike on either side, and stand up.

    Move, very, very slowly. At some point your buddies get tired of waiting and come over to lift it up with you :D
