Harley Ride at AFTE2009
« on: December 23, 2008, 01:27:08 PM »
On Sunday before AFTE (May31) I'm planning to rent a bike and ride down the florida keys if anyone wants to join. I pretty sure they have rebuilt the bridge since True Lies.

If I get a lot of interest, I'll plan something more organized.

I would be very interested in making that ride however I am unsure if my lab will be sending me to the AFTE meeting.  We are keeping our fingers crossed but with a 5.4 billion dollar budget deficit here in Wisconsin it is not looking good.  I have been working here for 6 years and have never been approved for a meeting.  I think a bike ride would be a great way to get to know other members.

No worries. I'm sure we will do the same thing in Vegas 2010.

I'm paying my own way this year cuz the Miami people talked up this meeting so much:)

I as well would certainly be interested.  If you get a overwhelming response to this, what are the chances that Miami Harley can provide enough rentals for that day?  Do you think they would make arrangements to obtain enough rental bikes?  I would hate to have to trailer mine down just for the ride.  ;D

That sounds way better than golfing - no offence.
Maybe I can bring mine with me as handluggage, wonder if US airport security would allow me into US.

Any way splendid idea.

When you call the shop to reserve a bike, tell them you are with the "Geil (pronounced Guy-el) AFTE09 group". If we get enough reservations, we'll get a deal on rental. 

colors are easy, smoke and gun metal grey. ;)

For all of you guys that are doing the bike thing to the Keys.  Either going down or coming back, make sure to take Card Sound road instead of US-1 and stop at Alabama Jacks for probably the best Conch fritters anywhere!  If you order the seafood plate for two, it is usually enough for 3 sometimes 4 people!  The food is great, the beers are cold and there is plenty of Jimmy Buffet music playing in the background!!!

I haven't rode a hog in 20 years but it sounds like fun.  Do you have to have a special license designation for scoots in Florida?

They are Harleys after all. We'll need someone to follow us in a truck with spare parts and tools. ::)

Renting requirements are on the shop link
