What a great Saturday...

This weekend in these parts is BiketoberFest.

Bunches and bunches (estimated 100,000) of
two-wheelers roaring into and around town for
most of three days.

Of all the tourist types we get every year, I like
these folks the most.

This time it was super-extra-special because one
of my most favoritist people in da woild rode his bike
from Jacksonville and took time to visit with me.

Mick and I had lunch and chatted and laughed for, oh...
about three hours on the beachside. Helluva great time.
He has a real purdy bike but since I am a chicken shit
with anything that has less than three wheels, he did his
cruising first and saved the best for last. Meaning, me.
I hated to see him go.

Hey, Mick... we still need to meet up at Cross Creek sometime, too.

Thank you for a wonderful day, my friend.

Jeanie, you need to hop on a bike...it's a GREAT feeling, one that I am quite sure, if you have open roads with great scenery at your disposal, you will yearn for again and again.

Or, you can always ride a trike, but it's more like riding a rumble seat without the body of the car than anything, and where's the excitement in that?

Bikers rule. Good peeps.

Eri, actually, I've ridden several times...in my yoot :-) Enjoyed it.
However, my husband did a good job of scaring the shit out of me one time, many years ago, and I haven't been on one since. Maybe someday.

Bikers are definitely good peeps.

Since I'm only about 100 ft away from A1A, I hear them all, all 100,000 of them on their way from Helen, GA down to your house!

The not so delicate sound of thunder, eh, Joan? Still... it's one of my favorite sounds.

Always good to hang with peeps!

Jean said...

Joanie... I get to alternate between cars on the track and bikes on the road :-)

T1G... ya shoulda been here!

Mick...I haven't had such a good time since our last visit.
