    :hello: I talked with Mike James on the phone this morning. He asked Markus & John Smith to come but they can't this time. No time like the present. :notworthy:. If I can drive solo 1,350 miles to VMD anyone can do solo to Daytona. So I seen the dates are set for VMD 2018. My Sister & I will be present weather or not ZL-oa cancels again.

    :hello: Mike James came to my place Friday then he checked in at the camp grounds. We didn't ride Friday. Mike left both his ZL 9s on PRIM the trip to FL. So he spent today changing oil in both his bikes. He just called me to let me know that both bikes are fine & ready to go. Today Mike B, myself & our Wifes went to Deland Bike Fest which is just for one day. Deland is 15 minutes from us. To me it was boring. I'd say 350 bikers showed up & no half naked girls. :laughing7:. Then we ate dinner in Osteen at Gators Riverside Grill. Tomorrow we are all going to meet at the Fox Head for Breakfest at 9AM.

    :hello: Gators Riverside Grill is located just off of State Road 415 just 5 minutes from Osteen FL & 5 minutes from Sanford. It's never really that busy for lunch but the place gets really crowded for dinner. You can even bring your dog. :laughing7: http://gatorsriversidegrille.com/index.html

    :hello: We left Osteen around noon for Daytona. First we went to PowderKote Plus in South Daytona to drop off my free OEM case guards for my ZL 10. I'm getting them done in Gloss black for free. Then we rode 25 minutes North to Ormand Beach. First stop was Sinners & Saints Pub. Then onto Smileys Tap, Broken Spoke & the Iron Horse Saloon which is all in North Ormond Beach. We headed home at 7:30 PM.
