Happy Dad's Day

Love to all you guys. What a great group of dads. Seriously.

Naples via Tamiami Trail 061210

Great ride with friends, we were four bikes and a well-planned itinerary. Tamiami Trail, via Four Corners to Clyde Butcher's Big Cypress Gallery, then a drive-by on the Skunk Ape Research Center and time to relax on the porch of Joanie's Blue Crab Cafe. Met the 'gator who lives in the swamp behind the kitchen, drank some cold ones from the cooler and shared a few stories with Jack. Great place to stop. A quick ride (ha! Lauren, yes, we should have walked!) to the smallest post office in the U.S. at Ochopee.

Lunch in Everglades City at the Seafood Depot. Then up 29 to the Naples Beach and Golf Resort, with a quick stop at the Iron Rhino. My impression: the Rhino was just too clean. More like a Greek restaurant than a biker bar ...

An afternoon of sun and pool, with drinks from the beach bar, dinner at HP's and the next morning relaxing in the beach with breakfast and beers. Perfect antidote to a hot afternoon ride the day before.

But the excitement wasn't over. Here is how David and Anne got back to Fort Lauderdale:

Sometimes, shit just happens. Thankfully we were just pulling out of the toll plaza on 75 ... no crisis, just a hassle and the most expensive souvenir of the trip: new tires.

I need to get more space on Flickr ... more photos to come! NOTE -- okay, done deal!

have more photos? send them to me!

Flossie's Saturdays

Flossie's Saturdays, sometimes Sundays. Always a good stop.

This was for mothers, daughters, sisters (& Sarah)

We rode from Chit Chat Lounge in Pompano to Flossie's in Dania Beach. Breakfast buffet and mimosas, then a trooper escort to 95. Fun friends, great hospitality, and excellent cause made a day that was fun and worthwhile.

Wonderful times with new friends on their new bike: Boston's to Two Georges ... Cafe 27 to Flossies ...

Sorry but I gotta do this ... if you FIND a B&Bhead moment in the slideshow, I'll buy YOUR drink next ride!

Last day of May

10 a.m. Cafe 27. Next stop Flossie's. Then to BlueFish. Good company, new friends.

And we met a local celebrity.

This is Miss Pineapple, selling Nitrogen to the biker crowd at Cafe 27, with her companion C-Note.

She's a sweetheart. She's got moxie. And no one I know can wear a Harley hat like this girl.
