So.....I looked through this forum, and I didn't see anything recent for Florida, or north Florida, except bike week, but I was without a bike during Bike Week this year.

I live in Jacksonville, but in Daytona a lot, and of course all over Florida. Would love to get discussion started on meeting a few people here locally. I've ridden with all types of people and groups, and for the past couple of years have been riding with a few friends, but the group has slowly dwindled down to about 3 of us that ride regularly. So I'm looking to add to the Rolodex, and find some people who ride during the week too. I haven't been to a bike night here in Jax in quite a while, and I think we have one every night of the week. I seem to have the time to make bike nights now, and have a few drinks, but the group I hang out with all work odd hours during the week.

Anyway, just looking to start the discussion. :)

Westside of Jax, near Orange Park. Would be glad go go on a ride if I'm open on the day. I have plenty of vacation days on the books, so during the week is ok too.

I'm on the west side too, off 103rd. Why don't a few of us plan on meeting up next week and then riding over to Buffalos? Shark night at buffalos?

You Jax guys might want check this place out. http://tonupjax.com/

I'm wanting to stop by there one day to take a look at some vanson leathers.

Give us a report on the place.
Oh damn, I work right by there, about 3 blocks away. I'll have to go over there and check it out. Looking at the website, it looks like Cafe Racer style place.

I'd be all for having a membership at a shop where I can work on my bike, but the problem for me would be getting the parts there and my bike. I don't have a trailer yet.

I'll be in Minnesota this week but will be back next Monday, can make Buffalos on Wednesday the 13th. Renting a batwing up in Minnesota as they had no Roadglides available. I know it won't be the same..

I'm at south side Jacksonville. Closer to the beach.
Would be fun meeting you guys and having a Jax shark gathering. Although next week might not be the best...wife and I are expecting twins any day now...

Keep me in the loop.:cool:

Well early congrats on that!

I see no reason I can't go to bike night more than once, so whoever can't go this week, next week I'd likely be up for going too. I'd like to make bike night at least once a week a regular thing for me. I'm also up for going to one of the other places too. Whiskey River is on Mondays I believe, and I know there is a Thursday bike night somewhere, but I don't remember where.

I'm over by Orlando but would be up for a weekend ride/get together. Jax ain't far at all on a RG.
For those in Florida, but not in Jax, I think we should schedule a meet up sometime soon a little more south. Gainesville maybe? Or maybe meet in the middle and make the ride out to Cedar Key, I haven't been out there in a while.

Well either or I will try I live near Gulf Breeze.... so it does not matter to me where... right now I am in ATL waiting for the crack of dawn (not Dawn's crack) so I can board a plane to europe to take care of some things in Germany.... I should be back in 2-3 weeks.... I will try to keep an eye out for this, since I will have some time on my hands until then....

A little update for me.... I took the bike out last night and my transmission sounds like it's falling apart. Called the dealership and I'm going by there Thursday morning. I still plan to meet whoever wants to go to Bike Night at Buffalo's tomorrow night.

We can meet there, or we can meet somewhere else and drive over. I was thinking meet at the dog track on 17 just south of 295, and then drive over. I'll be in my truck, and I'll have to park in the shameful car parking lot, but I'll still be there.

Anyone want to meet up and ride over?

As you can see, I tried to get something going, even a simple bike night meet and greet, but I didn't get a lot of feed back.
