Well... I don't think they'd hold up in a low side... on any type of bike!

And if you keep the throttle pinned you'll never hurt one in a highside because nobodys ever highsided with the throttle pinned.

Jeeze can't you Wankers keep a thread on topic?

Wife is out for the Scrub so I can be last in class C.

Are starts staggered by class or can different classes ride together?

There seems to be a few options for camping at or around Cedar Key. I'd like to see some more specifics on this event so if we can be at the same campground (rather than taking the hot tub option), that would be great.

Is this the campground you were thinking of? Not quite on Cedar Key.
Rainbow Country Campground
11951 SW Shiloh Road
Cedar Key, FL 32625
352-543-6268

The only campground I can find in Cedar Key does not post camping rates, appears to be RV oriented:

Sunset Isle RV Park and Motel
11850 State Road 24
Cedar Key, FL 32625
352-543-5375

Looking for info!

BTW, Cedar Key is a great place, a real peice of old Florida!

Later....
