Wintering in the South!

For my regular readers... this is a note to let you know that I didn't vanish... Just taking time off to get
to FL for a couple months.   At the moment I am at Holmes Beach and the bike is right outside the door.

Did the NE FL BMW Winter Rally at Camp Blanding near Jacksonville earlier this month.   Great fun, except they discontinued the entertainment.   Many thanks to Sgt Eric who led an on-post dirt ride and the many volunteers who put this rally together each year.  Another thanks to Bill Brandon who stored the bike for me up in Pinetta, FL.

Other than that I've been pretty much caged and doing tourist stuff... Nashville, Chatahootchee, Helen, GA and then looping FL counter-clockwise to Pennsicola, Mexico Beach, Stienhatchee and this week on Ana Marie Island.

Sunday I'm riding the slow speed maneuvering class with Police Motorcycle Officer Jerry Pallidino in New Port Richie.  Recommended highly by my BMW 1600 pal Bob Failla.   Story to follow next week.

The 'vacation tour' will continue through bike week and on to March Motor Madness in about 8 weeks.

What else is going on???   Lots of time to ponder maters on two-wheels, particularly driver safety and bike visibility.  Those stories should be here next week.

Travel safe,,, and good luck with the weather, wherer you are!
