(PICS THREAD) Mid Fla RTE, Celbrating The End Of Summer, 9/22/12
« on: September 22, 2012, 02:24:21 pm »
Hi,

If its OK I would like to share pics of the Southeast event today.  Kudo's to the organizers who did such an awesome job, SteveJ for making coffee this morning almost as good as Marge's, and everyone who showed up.  Teressa and I had a blast! 

Here are a few pics. I have them in hi-rez if anyone is interested.  I'd like to speak to the powers that be over the great COG magazine I've been getting about posting some South pics "just for the cause.

Sparky's served up some STELLAR breakfast morsels after our arrival




EXTRA LARGE PIZZA PAN, this was one breakfast





Even my girl Teressa was WOWing all over this food

Brand new


New and CLEAN!

So SteveJ hits above 150K miles and installs an "HYDROCARBON" kit huh I need to ask him about this mod!?


SteveJ also said a next goal is to hit 200K, so I kindly obliged to help his bike and its officially been blessed by the wings of a fast angel =)




A friend of mine Phil, he rides a somewhat "different" Kawasaki. This is his second COG outing. Hello, can one of the South recruiters bring him into the club???   =)

A BMW owner explained he had to waste his Saturday trailering his bike to the shop for repair.


We all salute him, and wish him well with his bike!


(disclaimer the COG bird group pic wasn't for the BMW nor did anyone suggest it, this is not serious)

Looks like a great time was had, eventhough there are no good roads to ride. ;)

Wow "no" good roads

I've been riding all over and even a part of Canada. Now that most are about to winterize their bikes, i need to figure out a track bike. Florida has the Epic roads at Jennings Daytona homestead/miami, morrosso and sometime just the straight line warm winter high speed squid runs through the orange groves and long bay bridges with the smell of ocean mist

Yeah your right tho no roads here =)

Yup, riding really sucks here. Please come and buy a house(they are all on sale), drive back and forth in a car, and make sure you stay on the tollways and freeways, away from the purty, curvy roads with no traffic on them. It doesn't get any better than that. :rotflmao: :rotflmao: ;)

Sort of seriously, it's not exactly Wayah Road or like that, but there is good/pleasant riding in Flowriduh.

Speaking of ocean mist, I'm getting to need a Keys fix. Teaser: There may be something in the COG function works that may quench my Keys need. :thumbs:

Man, do I miss 28*, freezing drizzle and a 40mph wind. Or -63 wind chills. Or starting the snow blower. Or putting on 3-5 layers of clothing. Not.

I was thinking about that today.  The heat is just starting to edge off...would make for a good trip.

KEYS!!!!!   Last winter I rode all the way down there for a slice of key lime pie.

Let's go anytime many times (once it cools off a bit).  I was in Naples this week damn still hot as $%#% although there's a price to be paid for being in paradise   8)

You know, I could be talked into doing something spur of the moment. We would spend more time down there, but the lodging $$$ is just outta sight. I sure like the views, food, and lower latitude attitude.
