Meet and Greet and Eat and...

Is this a good idea for a Floridian topic?
Has it been tried and failed before?
"Use the search."
Or...

There have been specific meet/greet/eat threads for different areas. Say NorthWest or Central. There are many camp/rides you just have to watch for post ups on local threads.

Get in with your locals first and then expand.

Good spot up here in the panhandle is Mickeys on 189 just north of Baker.

We meet/greet/ear and RIDE from there most everyweekend.

Don't know where exactly yer at in Flatistan, but a similar question was asked 5 yrs ago; that question started the Pensacola Area Riders thread, and it became a Movement. Point being, you may end up starting a similar movement in yer neck of the woods.

Just had in mind some simple meet/eat and ride on a SAT or Sunday type rides. A little street and as much dirt as we can find.

And that's how it begins

Is there a date for this movement yet?

I'm thinking about joining in the next time it comes around.
