siesta key has the most beautiful sand in the world. it's sooo fine. when you reach down in the gulf and scoop some up it's like paste. i love that place. hopefully one of these days i'll be back down there with my thrux. does anybody know if they still have the offshore grand prix there??? i remember seeing a beautiful red offshore racer whizzz by at over 100mph out there back in 95, it was making a wonderful sound. when we caught back up with the race boats back at the quay it turns out that it was running 3 lamborghini v12s. you should have seen the intake/exhaust plumbing on that [email protected]#*er!!

anyway, sorry about this love-letter to sarasota but that was a great summer.

The offshore race is still there. I always take the whole week of the 4th off for the festivities. They have a fastly growing bike weekend in the spring now called thunder by the bay. There will probably be several thousand bikes there this year.

Hey Silent
I live near Stuart, FL which is about 100 miles N of downtown Miami - a bit far I guess! I have the same problem up here - not many Triumph riders around! I did contact one local guy who tells me there's another 4 or 5 in the area.

I'm in Riverview (Tampa) about 25 minutes from Sarasota. I'll have to make it out to Fuel soon with the Thrux. Thats cool. Be nice to meet other local riders.
Finally!!! A fellow rider in Tampa...I live in Valrico and ride all the time (lucky us, with the weather) but alone.

Let me know if you want to meet up and head on down to Fuel Cafe on New Years Day or just ride any day.

Peace...Carlos

I'm game for a ride :D
Can't make it on the 1st though, I'll be out of town:mad:
As for Daytona, I'm going again this year. I was thinking of trying to catch the historic bike races at the track. I think it is on the first Monday of bike week...

So we have 3 events to look forward to

1-1-2009 Fuel Cafe in Sarasota "Cafe Bike Night"

Future Events

"A get together and meet ride" There are many good roads between Sarasota and Tampa and more inland. Do you have any favorite routes?

"Daytona Bike Week" Historic races, this sounds like a great idea.

The best ride I've done was in Nov....the Ride for Bella, through Pasco and Hernando county. It was awesome!! I've never been south though...looking forward to it.

I'm definately going to be there on Jan. 1st, in Sarasota.
