    A Day in the Smokies

    I got into Waynesville, North Carolina for a rally...a day early, so yesterday I headed into the Smokies. Roughly, Moonshiner28 from Franklin north up to Deals Gap, a run on the Dragon into Tennessee; then Foothills Parkway to Little River Road over the Cherokee, and then Blue Ridge Parkway...

    Best Biking Roads – Florida

    I saw this website, on another forum and noted that it had a few decent routes worth taking a look at in a few cases. There are a couple other similar sites that I've seen, but this one looks pretty good with a few exceptions (e.g. Alligator Trail...egad!). The site...

    Daytona Bike Week 2012

    Anyone have plans for bikeweek this year? We’re taking some north back roads over Saturday and catching the Supercross Saturday night. Then just messing around on Sunday. I might like to go back to the International MC Show later in the week, but that’ll depend on the workload. Here’s the...

    Florida Check-In

    I’ve noticed a couple other regions with member “check-in” threads and thought it might be a good idea for us Florida riders too. I don’t think everyone is on the member map, and I’m pretty sure there are some Florida members on the map that backed out of the PDP. New or potential Florida-based...

    FGT February 2012

    I just spent the last three days with some riding buddies covering 750 miles around the Ocala, Florida area scoping out a site and loops for our third annual winter Florida-Get-Together. Our local group holds this during the end of the week and weekend before President’s Day, so this year it’ll...

    Southern Dirt Track (Ocala, Fla.)

    Yes, there is flat track racing in Florida. A couple places actually, but four guys from our local forum rode up to the Micro Speedway in Ocala last night to watch a good friend’s debut in the amateur class. His son (and grandson) have been racing awhile and he thought he’d get in the game. He...

    Barber Vintage Festival 2011

    Now with some solid delivery guidance, it looks like some thought is going into some Fall Meets/Rides. I’m thinking the Super Teneres should be here well in time for the Barber Vintage Fest in early October and with enough time to get a proper run in. Perhaps an opportunity for a Fall Meet of...

    Florida Forest Roads and Trails

    We have several State Forests in Florida that are riddled with Forest Roads and trails through what are called Wildlife Management Areas (or WMAs). These are perfect for dual sport action and will be the initial proving grounds for my Tenere. In my area, West Central Florida, alone we have the...
