Hey CADS,

Most of you know that Jacksonville has a new BMW and Victory dealer. They are having their grand opening celebration this Saturday March 3rd starting at 9:00AM.

This is an awesome new dealership run by some of the nicest people including two of our own CADS members Don Passell and Ken Lucius. They have most of the new line of BMW and Victory motorcycles in stock including the new GS bikes. Not to mention all of the BMW brand gear and supplies. They also have some great condition used bikes.

They have a lot of activities going on throughout the day Saturday so stop on by and check them out. Below is the email invite sent out by the dealership announcing the grand opening and festivities.


Help us Celebrate!

You are invited to join us Saturday March 3rd as we celebrate the Grand Opening of our New Orange Park location for BMW and Victory Motorcycles.

We will be opening at 9:00 am and starting our raffle sign up at 10:00 am with drawings throughout the day for several hundred dollars in prizes. Industry experts will be on site to hold a tech seminar at 11:00. We will have BMW executives on site to give a “State of the Industry” address and answer your questions at 1:00 pm. Shawn Thomas will be on site from Rawhyde Adventures to hold a GS Off-Road seminar at 3:00. Food and beverages will be provided along with a DJ playing some good tunes. Professional riding demonstrations will also be held throughout the day. Check our website calendar for more information:

So stop by and check out the new facilities and festivities and enjoy the event. Pick up some SWAG while you're there.

See you there,
Dean

Looks like a lot of us are going to the new BMW dealer on Saturday to do demo rides on new BMWs. No one planed a ride at the meeting. A few talked about going down to Daytona on Sunday but nothing off road. I will relay anything if I hear of a ride.

Thanks!

A big thanks to everyone that recommended a Sargent seat for the KLR! I picked one up and the difference is amazing.

I do think Guns and a couple of the River City guys are going. I have to travel for work, otherwise I would be doing it again. Conditions determine a lot of this ride. It has been very wet in the past, meaning all of the trails under water. I went the year following the wet one and it was dry except for some water holes. We have been having very little rain, so I would expect conditions to be close to perfect. The area has great riding as there is some elevation changes as that area of Florida does has some small hills. I would compare this to Osceola, rather than Ocala as far as sand. Howvever there were a few trails of deep sand, but those were not very long. This used to be in January and was very cold. This time of year will make this a great event.

Good Luck and have fun.

Hey Mark. My son and I are going to be noobs at Devil's Creek also. I'll pick my son up after work, so it will be late when we arrive. We've never had anything with tags till now and couldn't participate in these kinds of events. We would also like to ride with CADS some weekend too. It looks like a fun group. We're also members of RCDR. See ya there.
