Our good friend and GCC member, Brucie B,  suggested we go to this place and listen to a band that he likes - Mr Nice Guy (that's the band, not Brucie B).  ;-)


So, let's meetup at GCTC Costco parking lot by the tire center at 9:45AM KSU 10:05AM

We plan on getting there about 12:30PM for lunch. (The band starts at 2:00.)


We'll take I-75 over there.  (I hate riding on I-75 but it's not so bad once we get past Naples)

... OR...

Stu's Suggested route takes about 2 hrs and 11 min as per MapQuest. So to make it to Café 27 by 12:30, if you're at COSTCO and ready for KSU by 10:05am EST and really want to follow ol' curvy road Stuey's route .... show up and be ready to ride. (Corkscrew ... Snake Road ... Hey, it ain't all flat and level!!!) Don't ya' just love options?! 



As always:

arrive with a full tank of gas

ride staggered

use signals

ride safe....

    Hi everyone! I'm afraid missing the ride is my fault! I pinched a nerve babysitting Sarah, so I'm having chiropractic care ; the Dr. Suggested a ride this weekend would be ill advised, by I hope to be better for the following Sunday!

    Miss you all and can't wait to see you!

      Thank you...it is a little better... Just not ready to compress the area on a long ride. But we sure miss you guys!

    ok we'll do the scenic route down - sounds good.
    We'll probably do 75 coming back .

    • Stuart & Linda S.

      75? Heck, I know you ... you'll be doing more like 85 or 90!!!!!!!!!! I've ridden by you before!

      Ha!

    FYI ya'll. It's about an HOUR and 40minutes to the service plaza at Snake Road and 75. That'll be our BREAK to stretch, gas up small tanks, stretch our legs, and people like Bruce and Stu can Prime Their Pumps Prior To Party!

      Ever ride to 80 then down 27 to cafe 27? Around south end of lake

      1 · January 30, 2014

    • Stuart & Linda S.

      Yep, been there - done that! 80 - 27 - 75 ... all are fine and dandy for getting somewhere, and fast ... but we're looking for a little less traffic, dodging those touristy busy 4-lanes, and a little more scenery. (I used to ride 27 when it was 2-lane all the way, sod trucks droppin' sod, and there was no 75!). Hope you'll like the route!

    Any Sunday morning early risers out there? Let's find the curves and less traffic. Trying to avoid those SUNDAY DRIVERS with our Sunday Riders! Watcha'say?!

    January 29, 2014

    • Roger

      Yep. We'll take your "special" route, Stew!

    I would but it's Super Bowl Sunday and there is something very un-American about not watching that game. Long live God, Country, and Apple Pie. LOL

    January 27, 2014

    • Bruce & Penny B.

      The game isn't played till 6:15. I think you can do both. The game might not be on Sunday anyways.

      EXACTLY!

  • Stuart & Linda S.

    Linda wants to know how we'll ever get anything done if we're riding every Sunday. hey! What do I care?! I gotta get things done every other day of the week!!!!! Looking forward to it. (Maybe we can get off 75 at Snake Road on the way back and come through Immokalee).

    January 26, 2014

    • Roger

      You have the evenings to get stuff done! That is, the evenings that you're not out partying with us. lol

I decided to start Reno Motorcycle Riders Group because I wanted to be part of a group of people who enjoyed my passion... I was excited and nervous. Our group has grown by leaps and bounds. I never thought it would be this big.

Henry, started Reno Motorcycle Riders
