springs, track bars, stuff like that... yeah. and I enjoy turning wrenches. with a little luck I'll be helping with the gear install. I'd like to learn.
Is this them?

Are we meeting in brandon at Harley or best buy? What time? Are we then going to the other meeting point or straight to the trails?

My guess would be Best Buy then up to the final meeting point.

Split the middle and shoot for 8:15?

This better be good as I'm barely up by then during the week! hehehe. Oh, the benefits of self-employment.

yeah.. we'll wait at the gas station till 10 - to see if there are any stragglers then we'll head up the street to the trail. the time at the gas station will be good. get to know everyone, talk a little bit about the trail, and check out some rigs.

I just realized, when I moved a couple months ago, my tow strap seems to have disappeared. I'm sure y'all have them so I don't have to go buy a new one today, right?

Just a lil... Maybe the rain will keep us clean lol? But 815 at the best buy sounds good! Go figure I changed my spark plugs and the very last one snaps! Good thing it came out without removing the head!

For those that are meeting up along the way, joe buell & I will be meeting in Bradenton at the Post Office on SR70 and 39th St at 7:15.
GPS: 4112 53rd Ave E Bradenton

From there we are meeting up with elclipo, lonewolf05, Amocat00, horsedad58, and HCFR-Halligan at Best Buy off SR60 in Brandon around 8:15.
GPS: 116 Grand Regency Blvd Brandon

Final meeting point is at the gas station on the corner of Hwy 98 (Ponce de Leon Blvd) and SR491 (Citrus Way) at 9:30-10:00. I can't quite make out the name of the station on Google's street view, but looks like the intersection sign says:
15476 Citrus Way Brooksville

Google says 41 minutes from Bradenton to Brandon, 67 minutes from Brandon to Brooksville. Google never tells a lie!

I'm sorry if I missed anyone... anyone reading this can join the convoy as well. Latecomers (likely me? ) will be forgiven provided they bring donuts or sammiches for everyone.

Does that sound about right?

PM me for my number if you'd like.
Edit: what the heck, 9x1-7xx-68xx, x's are all the same.
