    Believe it's just roll charts, keep the playing field level.

    my old stomping grounds... when I was a student at UF, i used to go flying down roads like this at 90mph on my Bultaco Matador Six-Day. It's what gave me the bug for adventure riding.

    This is right against the Supercross race, doh!

    Looks like a great ride, though, Rich.

    :freaky

    Ok here are some details filled in to hopefully give everyone a complete picture. I also updated the first page as well.

    Saturday Morning- meet at The 7-11 on the corner of Roscommon Dr and Old S Dixie Hwy. This is just east of the I-95. We will begin gathering, registration and roll chart mounting at 8:00am with the riders meeting at 8:30am. You can get gas, gator aid, water, go to the bathroom and basically take care of whatever you forgot at this corner. Publix is across the street. Bring a camel back if you can. You will need a camera to document some points (your phone will work, if it takes pictures) Try and join up with some other riders so no one is off by themselves.

    Saturday Evening the Dinner will be at 7:00pm with party and such to follow. We will meet upstairs at the Seabreeze Restaurant out on the key. Just past the Restaurant is a large public parking lot, so plenty of room to park your bike.

    Sunday morning we will meet at the best Breakfast place on the Key, Annie's Cafe, again at 8:00am - 8:30am. Sunday will be a long but rewarding route. It has a lot more dirt on the route as the areas we will be heading for are way of the beaten path.

    Sunday Evening- we will gather at 6:00pm until 7:00pm at Joseph's Bistro on Flagler Beach across the street from the pier. In order to be scored you must be in before 7:00pm. If you get there a little early the place to hang out is Fins, just a short walk from the Restaurant. Fins has a nice deck on the second story looking out over the Ocean.

    This Rally will be a good challenge to be able to complete both days. The names of the official finishers will be remember by all for a long time.:clap :huh OK, maybe they will be remembered by somebody for a few years?? Would you believe a few days :D Well that evening anyway :lol3

    Wish I could be there for this ride. Believe it or not, me and my wife own a house 4 miles south of the Archer museum. She lives there and I live in Indiana (both work related). I have a picture with my bike in front of the Archer museum and at that boat ramp. I have been to Cedar Key a few times, if you guys get done eating early enough, you can ride over to the air strip and to the end of the air strip and see a fantastic sunset. Good food at that restaurant. I hear good things about that little hotel, and the hotle at the end of the pier used to have good rooms and good food also (stayed there about 7 years ago)-dont know about now though.

    I'm 50-50 at this point, if I did I'd likely come down from Jacksonville and then ride straight back to Gainesville. Gonna be a lot of miles on the bike this weekend.

    I think I'm in at this point, this next week looks like it'll be about 1100 miles on the bike.

    Now I just gotta find a roll chart. Does anyone have an extra I could borrow for the weekend? If not I'm sure I can find one at a bike store.

    Thinking there's enough riders that you won't be by yourself if you don't want to be :ricky

    Hoping to make it out to this event. I'm down from Canada staying in Ormond Beach. Just wondering if the big brush fire is going to impact this event

    Can't find details on where it is/was. If you can let me know what road(s) it's on or near I'll look into it.

    No we're not close to Durrance Lane and it looks like the one in the Forest was south of Salt Springs so we're good there too, thanks Rich.

    Holiday Travel Park, Old Dixie Hwy. and I-95, there's a big grassy area in the back for tent camping, lotof the BMW guys stay there, about $18.

    Tomoka State Park Campground

    Gamble Rogers State Park on the ocean

    A lot of others but I believe those are the three closest.

    I am planning to stay at the Holiday Travel Park (pictured). Been camping there for years and likely will run into many like minded riders there. Hopefully no fire ban and can have a campfire (they give you the ring and sell you a tractor bucket full of wood for $20. Camping is $20 as well.

    Look for this guy:
