    North East Florida 2009 Winter Rally

    Hello fellow riders,

    I recently became the proud owner of a R1200GS Adv. I also signed up for the Northeast Florida winter rally on February 13th ,14th and 15th.

    More info about the rally can be found at http://www.bmwnef.org/

    I live in South Florida (Fort Lauderdale area) and would love to ride along with others.

    As a BMW newbie I'm just getting my feet wet at attending/camping out at a Rally, so the BMWNEF Winter Rally will be a first for me. Everyone have a Safe & Happy New Year

    Happy New Year. I will be at the Rally again this year. Do not forget the cut off date is approaching fast. See you there.
    We had our annual Penguin Lunch ride. I think we had 76 members for lunch.
    See you at the rally.

    i am unaware of rental services in the area, but having grown up down there, I can share with you that there are precious few places where riding is enjoyable.

    the Everglades National Park is a good ride, with plenty of places to stop and walk around and enjoy the nature. bring bug spray.

    go all the way to Flamingo.

    Go soothingly through the grease mud, as there lurks the skid demon.

    I agree with Ian, if you've seen one pine tree, you've seen them all.. You can go a little west toward the Suwannee River (best fresh water springs in the world) or a little south east (Rodman Dam and the remnants of the Cross Florida Barge Canal).
