Yesterday I realized that while I have been to 26 states on a motorcycle, my Gold Wing has never been to one of those. I can’t remember ever riding it to Florida. Speedy and George both mentioned a time or two about a meet for lunch on the coast. Is anybody interested in a Saturday in Pensacola?

It is only 270 miles to the Naval Air Museum and Pensacola Lighthouse for me. Longer for most of y’all I suspect. I could do a day ride or stay overnight. I’ve got the second weekend in December open but could swap some things around.

Also the first weekend in December there is a Civil War Reenactment in SE Mississippi. If you are interested in these here is some information;

I’m not too sure how big an event it will be, probably pretty small. But that is where Martena is from and I am pretty likely to meet my son and grandson there for the day. On the bike by myself or car if Martena comes along.

Sounds like a great destination crownfire, and a nice location for lunch riding along the coast. I'll have to move south some day so I can take advantage of all the "winter" riding many of us northerners are missing out on this time of year.

Can't do Saturday but the Naval Air Museum is worth seeing. I'd be interested in meeting the second weekend in Dec, weather permitting. Got a hankering for fresh seafood! :dinner:

Remember the problem you had with your big toe?
Any way if I will be around there I might have Visiting UP ( not upper peninsula) part deux for you and George.

Count me in on the Florida day trip. That's not a bad ride at all. I'm free most every day of the week or weekend. I just love to ride and I'm ready to wear this wing out :). Maybe we can do a local ride this Saturday high around 70. :). Just let me know.

Second weekend in December sounds good. We'll see what the weather looks like as we get closer.

My toe is better, thanks for worrying about me. Keep us in the loop and we'll come meet you.

I hope the weather works out for this. We'll see as we get closer. This Saturday I'm catching up on the honey-do list. Gotta paint a room and put new base molding up.

Veeeeeeery tempting, but a little too far out of my reach for a day trip - especially during the holiday season with two kids in different Christmas programs + "Elfing" + honey do's, etc.

Ya'll have a great time!!! Maybe the next one...

Hey Mark....I just saw this. I will try my darndest!
Not trying to screw your dates up, but if you move it up to Dec. 30, it could work with this ride:

Or we could do both........

We'll see how the weather works out. Rainy and cold time of the year.
I will be weather dependent on all rides.

Michael, the only weekend I have free this month is Saturday the 13th. So if not that day, then it will have to wait until January. I hate waiting a whole year.....

Looking at the long range rain forecast, I see something in east Texas on Thursday evening. So maybe it will be through before Saturday morning the 13th. Of course that is pretty far out for the weather guess.
