Apalachicola Again

Russ and the others in 7 Bridges Scooter Club have heard enough about my two rides to Apalachicola so far this year.  We had decided to use it as the overnight destination for my planned Fireball 500, but recently decided to just have our fall club ride split in two with one weekend ride to Apalachicola and another to Bradenton.  The Fireball will have to wait.

We now have 16 riders signed up for this one.  13 will be following me from Jacksonville for the 240 mile ride.  The other three will meet us on the way or once we arrive on Saturday afternoon.  One, Jami Sanderson, will be new to our rides as she is riding over from Pensacola.  We all are looking forward to meeting her and hope she will enjoy our company.

Most of us will be staying in the Gibson.  Others scattered about but we will get together for meals and maybe a ride on Sunday morning.

I have been wondering which scooter to ride.  I first wanted to ride Rocket as it has been good lately.  But I just put new tires on Razzo, so it should be ready.  It is more reliable so it would be less likely to cause issues over the distance.  Vanessa has new tires too, but I have not gotten her registered, licensed and insured since the purchase.  It would be a good test for her.  I could also take the Honda as it has been idle for a very long time.  We'll see.
