Run to the coast

Rode out to Titusville Florida Friday night for no real good reason. It had been a while since we had gotten together and hung out so the destination wasn't really important as so much as the company and the process of getting some miles in. Not to mention the weather was fucking perfect in terms of temperature and lack of rain. Rode out from downtown to CR46, headed east out to US 1, then south into Titusville. Travis was hungry and we ended up stopping at the most garish looking, day glow paint having, fluorescent lighted Burger King on the east coast. Seriously, this place had the most f'ed up interior that gave it a real Fear and Loathing type vibe. Word has it Travis is a bit of a BK Lounge junkie thus the motivation for the stop. Had we driven a few more minutes down the road, we could have hit a really cool, 50's styled diner (with a $5.99 shrimp basket special and sweet waitresses no less) but alas, none of us knew the area very well... Next time!

Regardless, we had a great ride. Something about doing a ton on a pitch black road that is both scary as fuck / exhilarating. The same kind of feeling you had when you rode Space Mountain for the first time; where you're laughing hysterically and pooping your pants at the same time. Thankfully, all we had to deal with were bugs to the grill / chest that night. We did see a couple of deer on the side of the road but nothing crazy the whole ride there and back. At some points it was down right cold but overall it felt great to be out riding in the cool night air. Once we got back in town, we hit Redlight Redlight, had a couple of beers and called it a night...


I honestly expected Raoul Duke and Dr Gonzo to come stumbling in at any moment...



Dunno what's funnier; Horsebites and his beak extension or the look of bewilderment on Alan Degenerates face as he bit down on that "California Whopper"...

Hot Fudge Injection!


KTB likes his ice cream.... :)

Damn good ride with damn good people. Its the little moments like this that remind us we are all still alive...
