I am heading to South Carolina in August to watch my son play football. He plays for a Semi-pro team in Greenville. (he has aspirations of going Pro some day) I havent been able to see him or a game in two years, so I decided that I would take a ride from Florida to SC to see him play. Plans are to spend the night there or head back after the game and catch a KOA somewhere along the way home. It's 500 miles from my front door to his hometown, so that will be quite a ride on the XB, but all worth it. Anyone interested in tagging along and catching a good football game?

dates??

There's a guy StarCheck from here who keeps saying he wants to do an Iron Butt ride. I'd be up for it, but I ain't staying at no KOA. My idea of roughing it is Holiday Inn. :eatpop

Message me or post up on the dates. Who's buying the margaritas?? :beer

LOL Kampgrounds of America. That means tents and sleeping bags. I think they have talked me into staying at a hotel so I can buy a round of drinks!

Good luck with that ride man.
I have done 800 miles in one day on the Buell. From Vegas to SanDiego and back non stop. That wasn't bad except it was COLD! I hurt for days from getting so cold in the mountain passes.

Right now it will either be the first or second Saturday in August. That is the best I have right now. I will have a firm date by next weekend I am sure.
Thanks!

If it's not the weekend of the 12th, I would like to join you. What route have u picked out? I took a ride from Melbourne to Jax the other day up 95 and wasn't too happy with the late-night semi action.

I was planning on 95, but leaving early in the AM. 95 takes me right to Columbia SC, and then we change to I26.

I have been trying to figure that out too... I think it doesnt mattetr where you live...there is always someone to go ride with!

Still not solid on the date guys but looks more like the 6th. Offer is for anyone that wants to, how about a BBQ at my house on Friday evening, then everyone can crash at our house and we'll get up and head out Sat morning.

See ya,
Nick

Looks like the Sixer or Holiday Inn! So far, it still looks like the 6th. I have a few things to get done, like oil changes, etc, and buy a new back pack! Not much space on the Buell.

6th August (Saturday) BBQ the night of the 5th at my house in Deltona. Leaving Saturday Am by 7. 500 miles! I have to stop about every 125 for gas. The Buell is hungry and doesn't tote a lot of fuel, plus my ass has about 100 mile limit anyway! We can stay somewhere there in Greenville, or head back towards the coast and grab a hotel.
Send me a PM,and I'll give directions to the house.

I don't know... and BIg plan change! My son called me today and he said that they play around noon on Saturday the 6th!! This would put us having to leave at like 2 in the am to get there in time for me to see him before the game. Any probs with leaving on Friday afternoon?? I would enjoy the company and hate to leave anyone out that wants to go!
