Be carfull up 47. My friend at work was just driving his s2000 up there when a oncoming car was halfway in his lane he swerved to miss it and ended up on the bank. The car is pretty messed up and the car didn't even stop!

I was just on 47 yesterday and it was nice. It sounds like the same scenario that happened to the rider on Highway 30 a few weeks ago, only he wasn't lucky enough to get out of the way of the truck in his lane. I wonder if there was any drinking involved in the one on 47? Too bad no one could witness and catch the bastard that was in the wrong lane.

Yeah I was on my way to work and I even left early to ride up 47 but I got hot and didnt feel like going and getting all nasty before work.If I would have went up there it would have been around the same excact time my friend got in a wreck....Glad I decided not to go and got to work 1 1/2 hours early....

I'm available today, but I've just been doing stuff around the house. It's been pretty foggy here. I just read your post above, so you're probably out riding now.

I rode today with beachrydr, but he invited me and just two of us rode. I'm a little nervous about going with a group that's too big to keep track of. After missing Dave for several minutes and going back for him to find him wrecked, I don't want that to happen again. The fog burned off and the heat was back. I might be able to go again tomorrow. I don't know yet what the kids or wife have planned or if I'm involved.

Don't feel bad. In the 3 years I've known John we have only ridden together once or twice. Had a lot of nice bonfires and bbq's though...lol

We would have made it on a couple more rides in the last few weeks if you were here and not Florida. I hope you had a good time, but you belong here.

Yeah yeah I know, but I had to take the time to visit some family. I'm working 2 on 2 off for the rest of the month so I'm not sure how much riding I'll be doing this month except to work and back.

A lot of people would kill for a schedule like that. Find someone else working the same schedule but opposite shift. Trade shifts with them every other shift. You'll get 4 on, 4 off. That would make it better. I would do that for my 7 on, 7 off, but the company doesn't want any pilots working more than 9-10 days in a row. We get burned out.
