C'mon Rich, can't you sneer just a little while brandishing those weapons? (I know, he don't have a mean bone in his body). Sounds like fun in Florida.

Great times are being had. I just wonder why he didn't send pixs of his targets?????
It's one of those "Hhhhmmmmmm" things. Right Dennis?

I can head East or West, it doesn't matter as long as it's on 2 wheels.

Just received this note.


"Today Charley and I traveled from Apollo Beach to Daytona Beach. The trip took about three hours. About half way through the trip, we ran into colder temperatures and light rain. Later in the day, the wind kicked up to make for a pretty snotty day.

"We spent a few hrs. at the largest vender area and only purchased a few small items. Shortly before dark we checked into our hotel, walked a short distance for dinner and settled down for the night.

"Hopefully the rain will stop by morning and we can cover more ground.

"We hope all the folks up North are recovering from the snow and cold."



I told him I was sorry to hear about the rain, but said if he'd had a day without having snow fall on him, he was doing pretty well by my standards.

"Hello all.

"The weather was better today but very windy. The bikes were covered with salt spray from the ocean. Our windshields, face shields, even our rear view mirrors were hazy with salt.

"Went to the Iron Horse Saloon today and back to the main vender area to visit the Victory bike display and had my picture taken on a Cross Country. Nice, but I like my Cross Roads.

"Tomorrow we head South to my Sister's home. We should be there by noon."

"Hello all.

"Today Charley and I traveled from Daytona Beach to Micco Fl., located about 30 minutes South of Melbourne on the East coast. The trip took 2 1/2 hrs.

"Charlie's wife drove from the West coast to meet us at my sisters home. After a great dinner served by my sister, Charley and his wife headed home, he on his bike and she in the family car.

"Charlie and I made plans to get together in a week or two to take a bike trip to the Florida Keys. A neighbor of my sister expressed interest in joining us on the trip so maybe we will have another person to ride with

"This will be my last update for a while until I get back on the road again with my bike. No use boring you with my family activities, like boating and riding in an airboat.

"Take care,

"Rich"
