I am planning an East to West 50CC ride for Oct 15th-16th. Anyone interested in joining me for a nice 2360 mile ride? Plan on leaving Jacksonville Beach Saturday morning around 02:00.

Sounds like a blast. WIsh I could tag along. One of these days I'll be able to stop wishing and start doing.

Good Luck and have a great trip.

Have a safe trip... I did it last October on the other direction. My halfway point was Kerrville, Texas. Other thing of valuable was taking the I-12 around New Orleans. Try to avoid this area around rush hour traffic.

Good luck, ride safe and have fun.

My 50CC from SD to JAX was 2359, but I had to get from KY to SD to start it and then from JAX back to KY. Total for the trip was right around 5300.

This trip is going to be more in the 5500-6000 mile range. Vacation starts after work Oct 5th and I am becoming an IBA addict. The plan is to start collecting stamps for an IBA National Parks Tour and am going to just wander around the East coast for a bit. The CC50 depends on weather, a couple of rain drops is fine. A major storm or just still too darn hot in Gila Bend Oct 16th and I will bail.

TXREALTOR... Come on down. Meet you in Jacksonville Oct 14th and remember "forgiveness is much easier to get than permission".

LMAO I would love to. The 4 letter word called work keeps getting in the way. When I am at work I am definately out of pocket.

Thanks for the invite. I really would like to make that ride. I will some day, hopfully sooner than later.

Have a GREAT trip.

If'n I was to get really interested, that (NPT) would probably be the one that could hook my wife as well...

Have fun, ride safe!

Ken: Every night, after Grace has safely fallen asleep keep whispering in her ear "the NPT is a good thing". In a couple of months it will be her idea. Problem solved.

TXREALTOR: I am familiar with that four letter word you posted. Chicken?

LMAO. Yea it kinda sounds like it. But when at work, I am a couple hundred miles off shore. It is a all or nothing venture. I'll be at work, so hard to sneak in a sick day.

I am happy you are feeling your oats, you may need all of them. LOL

Cheers

OK, You win. I guess a 200 mile swim, a 4720 mile scoot ride, capped by another 200 mile swim all in one sick day would be a push even for the ultra tough IBA rally folks. I will wave at ya on the way by,
