This Snowbird can't miss the first RTE of the year 2014!  I'm very much looking forward to Saturday. Hope to get some more info on Kamping in the Keys. Looking to hook up with a group to save some bucks.

Re: Last Minute RTE: mid FL Jan 04 - Photos

A couple more photos ... We had a great time ...

However ... this might be my most expensive lunch ever for me ... as SteveJ was looking at my front tire he commented "I wouldn't ride on that" ... he continued with something about "no tread" and "safety issue" ...  :-[

Advice ... one of the many benefits of attending COG functions  :beerchug:

So now (after patching my rear tire last week) ... I am looking for some PR4s ... and someone to mount 'em!  :truce:

a few phone pics....

On the way there we found a restaurant serving up URBAN decay!



Then we were offered a classy upscale FLORIDA wine bottle holder



Then we get to the real restaurant and they served Teressa and I some of these vittles

Fried shimp, and Shrimp and Crab salad



A little view while munching





But we could've wasted the perfect weather and ate inside...  just sayin'



The chit chat



The ride



My bike ran slow from the time I parked at the restaurant.  I figured out why, I had parked it next to this bike.





KiPass!
