You don't have some stashed from when we went up, do ya?

Along that line, a salesman I work with picked up a coupla tubes of sausage from http://www.houseofhomemadesausage.com/index.php (http://www.houseofhomemadesausage.com/index.php)


One garlic, the other Hungarian. They make the fridge smell like a sausage market. I like it, Margie not so much.
I'll bet the store smells heavenly.

D*mn, ain't I a handsome feller, though. Maybe it's the shades...BTW, I'm on TDY in Fort Lauderdale, found a marvelous, and frugal Q place. I had the brisket. Yum. Could be a long distance RTE...

Folks wanting to meet up, figure on leaving my place about 730. Will also have a meet up at the Shell station at US 301 at rt228, just south of I-10 a few miles. Figure on departing there at about 10:45. We'll also be swinging by the Mickey D's in Interlachen for a short break and maybe meet up with other riders. I'm thinking around 9-915 leaving MacDonalds.

I can let you borrow this scooter I picked up, if you don't get the tire.

Of course we'll have to talk my friend into giving it up - she seems to like it  :D

It's 136 miles from my place in Savannah to the Shack at the Track. At one point I was only 7 miles away as the crow flies but my GPS tried to route me down a dirt/sand road that would've been tough. Once I re-routed, I got there a bit late but most of the bikes were still there.

The Shack is, as you would imagine...a shack.

(http://dolomoto.smugmug.com/Motorcycles/moto/i-s6vG4Ss/0/XL/IMG_1482-XL.jpg)

I heard there were at least 50 bikes there, I spoke with a rider who rode down from Atlanta!

The Shack does Ice Cream also.

The portions were HUGE. This is the "small" sandwich.

Even Triumphs were welcome!

Great pics.  I think the total was 53 bikes.  Perfect riding weather and good food.  Thanks everyone for coming.  I'm sure we'll do it again next November, same place!

Who in the world would ride a Triumph to a COG rally   ;D  Good seeing you again Austin, even though I split early.
