    Exclamation Starting the New Year Off Right

    I'm stuck in the Florida Keys and will miss RayRay's oyster roast, but will get home (hopefully) in time for a toddy before midnight tomorrow. The weather for New Years Day looks to be fairly sunny w/ a high of 69 or so. Maybe a good way to begin 2012 is to go for a ride. I thought Beaufort, Bluffton or Hilton Head for lunch might work.
    Anybody interested?

    Good idea, Dave, count me in.
    Good to see you're using your head for something other than a hat rack

    We'll decide on a meeting place depending on who else wants ride.

    I'm not scheduled out of the Keys until between 4:00 and 5:00 tomorrow afternoon. I have to fly my pax to Charleston, refuel, deadhead to Savannah and drive back home. If everything works out the way its supposed to I'll look for your meeting place suggestion when I can get near a computer terminal. If I don't respond right away, leave me a voicemail at 843.822.7850. Looking forward to riding again; this business of working is starting to get in the way of my fun.

    Sounds like Santa was good to the young lad. What brand/caliber is it? I know this is a motorcycle forum so will you get a scabbard for your bike?

    I guess it's only us so we can meet at the Denny's by the airport around 11:15. We've met there a couple times before. I left you a voice mail in case you don't see this.

    Just to be on the safe side, wear your vest and leave the reindeer hat at home on Sunday

    Fantastic weather to start out the 2012 riding season. LCR, Raymo, and myself had a good lunch in Hilton Head this afternoon.

    Glad we didn't have to ride to Fla to eat. After several attempts we finely found an open establishment. Being that it was New Years day, there were quite a few people out and about and being one of the few places open, I'm sure Hudson's cleaned up on the business. It was a great day for a trek like this. A lot of fun

    Happy New Year!

    Best ride of the year!!! We kept playing leap-frog so many times I lost count. Speargun41 would be riding point with me in the rocking chair and RayMo riding sweeper. Then, all of a sudden, everything would change. I never quite knew what was happening next, but had a great time. The weather was close to 70 degrees, the sun was bright and I couldn't ask for a better couple of guys to spend the afternoon on two wheels with. Happy New Year everybody!

    Bummed I missed a ride with the Charleston gang, I was out on the bike in the late afternoon around Bluffton. Glad you guys had a good ride, I'll try to catch you next time.
    I better start checking the board more on weekends...
