Hi Backwoods, I thought I'd at least post something for you to read.

I made the trek to Daytona twice in one week. Last Saturday I left Jacksonville with a group of people heading for Daytona. The group riding format was not explained to the several newbies, and after several "close calls". I decided to go off on my own and ride to Eustis, FL. They were holding a vintage show/swap meet and had several acres of stuff. Also a great ride back to Jax through the Ocala National Forest.

Friday I rode down to the AMA Motorcycle Hall of Fame breakfast. It's pretty neat to be in a room with about 20 or 30 Hall of Fame inductees and get to talk with them. I attended as a sponor representative of Riding Into History.

Then I rode over to Deland for the pre-auction show held at Stetson college.
Also another great ride home through the back roads of Florida.

Sounds like a great time. You gotta watch when riding with a group and some don't know the rules or follow the rules of running en mass!!
