Dianne and I are planning on going, leaving South Florida and riding up there. If anyone wants to ride up with us (details when it gets a bit closer) or meet us there for some fun and friendship let me know.

I'll definitely be hanging out at least one of the days that weekend.

Last year I showed up all 3 days. If you want we can exchange cell numbers & give a yell when we're free.

Let me know.

Hope I can make it. I'm probable going to miss some of Daytona that I planned to go to because of work.
Let's see if we can plan a HSN get-together down there.

Sounds good. It may be a Shadow and Rebel get together as my wife rides a Rebel. :)

This is my first year going to Leesburg (I'm a fairly new rider), but the group I ride with is planning a trip up there. I hear it's great a time. I've never been to Daytona (although they are doing a day ride there as well) so this will be my first bike fest.

bposner,

I will be there sometime Friday afternoon & a good bit of the evening. I may be working a table setup for the Victory chapter I'm a member of. If you want I can PM you my cell & we can get together & chat or go for a ride.

Where does your friend live?

Lola,

You'll have a great time here at the Bikefest. It's still small in relation to Daytona but I think it's more biker friendly. Enjoy yourself & ride safe!

I'm getting excited now that it's only 2 weeks away. Not looking forward to the ride up the turnpike though as this will be my first turnpike ride. A new experience all around!

One of my friends is doing that and possibly stopping in Sebring for the night before continuing on. The group I'm riding with wants to take the turnpike so we get there at a decent time. We're leaving from West Palm Beach around 2:00. I figure I'll suck it up and go on the turnpike. They've promised me that we won't go faster than 75 mph.

I'm getting so excited! On my way to work tonight I saw they already have the "Caution: Bikefest. Watch for motorcycles" signs out. I get home from work at 8am on Friday. I'll probably go get the bike and head out until it's time to pick up the kids from school.

Kids can be so selfish*

Ok, so we are getting ready for our bike trip to Leesburg Bikefest, and get a call from my middle son. As some of you know he went in for bypass surgery a while back, but seems there is something else going on , well he's going in for a Cardiac Cath (Info about it here http://www.healthsystem.virginia.edu...rdiac/cath.cfm )

So our trip to Leesburg as been derailed to Boston. Leaving sometime Thursday...kids, sheesh.

Seriously, wish us luck. Will Keep ya all updated.


*bad joke, but gotta keep up a positive attitude.
