I really want a Sportster Iron 883 or some other sportster but I don't know if that could handle working that hard that often (Bradenton to Tampa and back every day). Also, one of the first things I…Continue

Jay -

Brays was okay (stopped there many times) but Green's at 10 Mile and Orchard lake in Farmington was the original Greasy Spoon!!

You got your ride yet?? 

Looks like I might be trading my 2007 Flstc in for an RV and a job next summer in Alaska. Had a bike since 1965, can't believe I'm going to be  without one...

Kidd Rock and ZZ Top tore up Milwaukee , hope you get to see them in Tampa !!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!
