Time to start planning for THUNDER BY THE BAY. (< Follow Link).
It is a 4 day event. Thursday January 9th thru the 12th. We usually make it a one day ride. This year some of us are going up on Saturday, staying over and coming back on Sunday. (Gonna catch the late night FOGHAT concert!!)
Meet-up at Ft Myers Harley Davidson at 9:30AM KSU 10:00AM
Meet-up at RaceTrac Service Mart, ( 4968 Tamiami Trail, Port Charlotte… The Trail and Melbourne St. on the North side of the river ), at 10:30am KSU 10:45am
PROPOSED ROUTE UP (<LINK)
Once arriving at the Main Street area, park where ever you can. You'll probably NOT be able to find a place to all park together. Thanks to Stan The Man's suggestion we'll meet-up in Sarasota where we did last year - the corner of Lemon and Main Street at Mattison's City Grill. (Basically, once we are there, everyone is on there own. Please be sure you know how to get home or make plans for the trip home because the "ride" is officially over once we reach our destination.) HOWEVER ... here is a PROPOSED ROUTE BACK (<LINK).. (as usual Stu is searchin' out the CURVES!!!!)
Show up with a FULL tank of gas!
We ride staggered.
And the bigger the group, its a good idea to review THE GROUP RULES OF THE ROAD
