    Last year a bike ran into the crowd and a woman bystander got killed. So with ABATE getting sued, they cancelled it here. Space Coast H-D promoted it but had no escort. Had people making up their own routes. Hadn't heard of any incidents so, I guess it worked out good. They started at the Merrit Island Mall before the bars opened up,Smart idea. P.S. That's My girls own bike she's on. 2014 Heritage.

    Yeah we used to do that ABATE ride every year, shame all those years
    and all those toys and one guy ****s it up...

    We were at Space Coast Sat for a little bit, they had some stuff going
    on, hit FrogBones for some wings on the way home and checked out the
    gun side. Nice store.

    I saw a 100 of you....

    Funny the sales mgr and service manager
    are guys I know from Seminole that moved over to SCHD

    I had them order a new mirror under warranty for
    my bike, the chrome was coming off, not one word
    or problem where Seminole told me when they replaced the fork
    nut covers that were de-laminating that it wasn't a warranty item
    but would do it under a one time thing. Pissed me off, told them they
    could call HD or I'll call HD and raise cain because a less than one year
    old CVO bike (any bike for that matter) is covered and no owner
    should have to put up with the old Service BS.

    It wasn't counter ordered chrome with 90 days warranty...

    So eff Seminole, even though it's a day ride I'll go over on a Sat
    and get it when it comes in...

    Been sick with bronchitis for a couple weeks, it won't go away. Missed our toy run to a children's hospital. We invited the Blue Knights and Fire Riders along. 81 bikes brought tons of goodies. Local county LEO's escort. No incidents and first year with a new and very chubby Santa. He did good! First year in a while I missed it.

    Right eye still FUBAR'd so other then short rides around the back country roads that's it. Very depressing riding season. Only consolation was getting ahead of yard and house repair work.

    With one eye i've broke a couple drinking glasses miss queuing them on the dish strainer and continue to pour on the wrong side of the cup if i don't pay attention.

    The weather here is making getting better difficult. 60F one day, 30's next. Up and Down, Up and Down all Fall. Craziest Fall weather in years. Lots of people sick with bronchitis. Seems a month is the course.
