    Hey all, since I'm jealous I can't go to R3 in Cali I decided to do my own scenic ride on the so-called "Daytona Loop" here in Florida on Saturday, May 20th. In addition, I'll be checking out a vintage motorcycle show featuring Japanese bikes! Any of you VFR people are welcome to tag along. If anyone else shows up than I will call it the "G3" for "GatorGreg Groupride" - LOL. I figure there's got to be a few other people in the southeast who can't make it all the way to Cali for R3, so you're welcome to tag along with me on G3. I've never done this route before, but I would estimate it would take no more than 2.5 hours plus whatever time is spent at the Castillo. If you're interested in going please post up here!

    Preliminary plan for G3:

    Saturday, May 20th

    8:00am - 9:00am: Meet and greet at the Murray Bros. Caddyshack at World Golf Village near the intersection of I-95 and International Golf Parkway - address is 455 S. Legacy Trail, St. Augustine
    http://mbcshack.com/

    9:00 - about noon: G3 ride to the "Daytona Loop" which is actually closer to Ormond Beach between Flagler Beach and Daytona Beach.
    https://www.daytonabeach.com/things-to-do/attractions/loop/
    http://www.ormondscenicloopandtrail.com/Map-with_header_and_text_v5.pdf

    Roughly noon: Lunch at the Caddyshack

    About 1:00 - 4:00pm: Check out the bikes at the bike show

    4:00 pm - ?: Anything goes - I'm not responsible :glee: One idea I have though is to repeat the group ride for folks who can't arrive in time for the morning ride - but for the afternoon ride I'd do the Daytona Loop portion in reverse for a new experience. Also, I wouldn't mind ending up at The Columbia for dinner and a mojito or two - one of my favorite restaurants of all time! http://www.columbiarestaurant.com/Menus-By-Location/Locations/St-Augustine-Historic-District

    Tentative G3 route is as follows:

    Caddyshack to International Golf Parkway
    International Golf Parkway east to U.S. Highway 1
    U.S. Highway 1 south to San Marco Ave.
    San Marco Ave. south to King St. in St. Augustine.
    Possible photo-op break / sight seeing tour of the Castillo de San Marcos while we're there ($10.00)
    https://www.nps.gov/casa/index.htm
    King St. east across Bridge of Lions to Anastasia Blvd. /A1A/ Ocean Shore Blvd.
    A1A / Ocean Shore Blvd. south to High Bridge Road.
    Beginning of "Daytona Loop"
    High Bridge Road west/north to Walter Boardman Road.
    Walter Boardman Road west to Old Dixie Hwy / North Beach Street
    Old Dixie Hwy / North Beach Street south to State Road 40 / West Granada Blvd.
    State Road 40 / West Granada Blvd. east to John Anderson Drive.
    John Anderson Drive north to High Bridge Road.
    End of "Daytona Loop"
    Back to the Caddyshack at World Golf Village in St. Augustine for lunch

    After lunch at Caddyshack we'll check out the 2017 Riding into History Motorcycle Concours (Honoring the Japanese Motorcycle) which runs from 10:00am to 4:00pm at the World Golf Village! According to Burnes45 on the other forum, "Yvon and Miguel Duhamel are the Grand Marshals and the display of vintage motorcycles is breath taking. I have been the last 4 years and the event gets better every year. Admission is $10 dollars per rider and the money goes to a good cause (K9's for Warriors)." https://ridingintohistory.org/
    From their website: "The 18th Annual Riding Into History Concours d’Elegance will feature 300-400 antique, vintage, race and custom bikes from all over America. Last year’s event was a huge success, raising $40,000 for our charity, K9s For Warriors. This year’s event promises to be bigger and better and we hope to match or exceed our donation of last year. In addition to the array of beautiful bikes, there will be exhibitors, dealers, food, entertainment and exhibitions. And you can meet our Grand Marshals Yvon and Miguel Duhamel!"

    Here's some pics from last year's show courtesy of Burnes45 at VFRD:

    There's also a fancy dinner planned as part of the bike show on Friday the 19th but I haven't decided if I'm going to it or not: https://ridingintohistory.org/grand-marshal-dinner-registration/

    Places to stay overnight:
    Camping near St. Augustine: https://www.visitstaugustine.com/things-to-do/camping (I've camped at Anastasia State Park on the beach - very nice!)
    Hotel at World Golf Village: http://www.marriott.com/hotels/travel/jaxbr-world-golf-village-renaissance-st-augustine-resort/ (Pretty nice hotel but a little pricey).
    Hotel at St. Augustine: http://www.casamonica.com/ (Awesome hotel with its own private beach club - very expensive but worth it).
    (Of course there are hundreds of other places to stay in St. Augustine/Daytona Beach/Orlando area but these are just a few places close by that I have stayed at and can recommend.)

    Group rides organized by noobs down to the last detail seldom work out. Checking the weather half a month in advance and expecting that to be a constant is iffy. Win10 maps and Google maps will lay out the entire routes including traffic and construction conditions.

    Anyone going on a ride with minigator should also check Gaydar.com questioning any suggestion of sharing at Motel 6 pit stops.

    Woohoo! Looks like PyschoBB just posted something in my G3 thread - thanks for the bump! I have no idea what the whacko said cuz I have him on my ignore list but I'm guessing it was one of the following:

    A) yet another creepy reference to my children
    B) yet another not-so-subtle physical threat
    C) yet another unintelligible dissertation
    D) He's planning to come to St. Augustine with the VFR he claims to "still have".

    I hope it's "D" :glee:

    Well, that's gratitude I suppose. Do a dude a favor by helping out with a post going back three months with no action to speak of and what do I get, not even an invite to Motel 6.
