Small Bike Route

There are 2 routes, one for big bike and one for small bikes.

As Bobby said, this is the small bike route, just wanted folks to see a little of it, that might be considering taking a big bike on the small bike route.

Thee is a seperate Big Bike Route especially for GS's, Tigers, 950/990/1190s, Tenere's, KLR's (anything with street tires) etc.

Cheers

In for the regular (East to west) rally, small bike. Planning on hanging a hammock in Cedar key, hopefully there will be trees available :-)

The big bike route has plenty of dirt. Just not the deep Ocala sand. The Big Bike route will consist of dirt roads and jeep trails. We just look for the more consistant hard packed dirt. That is not to say there will be no sand. It is Florida

The start will be at Palm Coast Parkway NW and I-95, the Shell Station. It is on the West side of I-95 and the North side of the Parkway.

There are 2 Restaurants we are looking at, however currently we are targeting JT's Seafood Shack for Sunday night's Dinner and Awards. Located at 5224 N Oceanshore Blvd Palm Coast.

(riding the Reverse Loop on big bikes) and then Sunday we head to Bike Week and will be at Holiday Travel RV Park for $16. Tell them you are with the BMW guys. Bring Beer.

Is it really an adventure without obstacles?
