.... and some think owning a bike is a 'money pit'! :shock:

So .... did you do any fishing, or just out 'cruzin'? :fishing:



Been riding around up here lately in my mesh jacket, but don't know how much longer that will last, seeing as Bob and Deb will soon be heading back! :laughing:

Had lunch with Fla's finest game / police and asked about catch and release w/o license. This is a NO NO attached to a heavy fine too.

So we cruised at Capt Bob's direction. He's pretty good at sniffing out the good stuff, don't cha know.

Bob and Deb are on the East side near Vero and such, checking out the action over there.

They leave on the 28th of the month so the 1500 is getting it's last bunch of runs in.

In planning for next year, we would like to include St Augustine for an overnight if possible because of both day and night time functions.

The ride up is really cool through lake country and forest including the St Johns River. I have done the this trip as a day ride from Sarasota to include lunch on the river at St Augustine. Not for everybody but a great riding day for sure for those on the go.

That will have to be a definitive for next year. The good Lord willing.



Did a run to Sebastian Inlet State Park and area today. JDLN 126 was coming down from Bike week and gave us a call. We rode over and met up with him for the tour of the area. What a fantastic area. Here are some pics.

Well the Fl days are winding down fast now . Your need to drive the Explorer to the gas station ( if it still runs ,heheh) and put some fresh fuel in it . I hope you thought to add some Stabil for its long sitting spell here .



Geez Bob , Deb your about to pack it up again . Sorry we didnt get in more rides together . Though I am glad you had some real nice weather this year . Once you leave , would you send us some good rains ?



Now that you have been down south in the lake area perhaps you can lead us down to some good catfish restaurants next year .

Sad to see my buddies go. You guys are really the best and I am looking forward to the next meet up.

As for rain, I expect we will get more than our share come Sept-Oct unfortunately. We really need it now as much fire action is east of here.

Be safe on your way up and let us know that you got home OK.

Hawggy,

Consult your doctor and inquire about "Azelastine HCL"
It has made a tremendous improvement in my nasal health. Pollen is not bothering me this spring like the previous 50-60 years have.

Sign me up too, St. Augustine is one of my favorite places to go. This whole thread is full of pics and stories from my back yard. Hope to see you guys on your next visit and wouldn't mind if you dragged Dusty down here too....



Have a safe flight back home.

Too bad I had to work while you were here. Next time we might have to plan a mini NASSIR and take my dinghy out for a cruise/fishing/scuba trip. Room for everybody onboard....
