    I next morning we slowly got up

    made our way back to betty boops

    jim and I were already talking about going back today

    bill and carrol were thinking the same thing

    after we ate bill and carrol went over to main street to check out he indians

    jim went back to pack

    I went to see my friend don and his folks

    don's moved down to help them around the house for a bit

    I used to stay with neal and jauntia when I came down for bike week back in the day



    they weren't home when I got there so I sat on the front porch when they showed up

    after hand shaking and hugs

    don's mom as she hugged me said " there's my little red headed asshole ":lol3

    neal turned 95 a couple of months ago


    as don handed me a beer, his dad said donny go get my coffee cup and put a little whisky in it

    we visited for a bit and i headed back to pack

    a little pissed off at myself for not getting a pic

    that visit was a high light of the trip


    stopped at a store

    admired some old bikes

    [​IMG]


    as i crossed the bridge i thought i'll ride up the beach to the hotel


    [​IMG]


    $20 for a short ride i decided maybe i wouldn't

    back at the room, i walked around the pool


    [​IMG]


    Jim told me later the red head had been going strong the whole time he was there

    passing a racoon

    not far from palatka it was misting rain and i'd gotten chilly

    so reached back to unzip my saddle bag and grab my jacket as I was looking over my left shoulder to get bag open

    I felt myself hit the grass, at 70 mph :yikes


    as I told myself, this is gonna hurt, I some how got slowed down a bit and back on the pavement without dumping it



    :p3rry

    as I looked up the others were pulling over, I joined em

    told em what I 'd done

    they said we thought u were pulling over to put your rain suit on:D


    we suited up, pulled out and came to a curve :-)

    I remember back when robin and me were dating

    I stopped and put on yellow rainsuit that looked like had seen better days, offered her one

    a few months later we got in a cold hard rain, she put it on

    found out it was warm and blocked air


    wouldn't get on the bike with out one for a while after that :lol3

    next morning we loaded the bikes in cold on again off again showers


    back to the farmhouse for breakfast, left there in a down pour and as we turned up the radio and laughed about the rain
