Last week Bill and I met up at the Jacaranda for some rides to visit courthouses. Got rained out one day, but got in a good 250 mile tour of four counties courthouse. Dan joined us for the ride and Celeste joined us for the fun parts.

Great Photos
Bill,

You guys will use any excuse to go riding "Court House Tour". I envy
your year around riding season. Although, I did notice you appear to be
dressed rather warm.

Thanks again for the super photos - keep them coming all Winter.

5-9" of snow here tomorrow night. I will awake to the sound
of snowblowers and Snowplow trucks dieseling down the lane.

Bob, It was cool and a bit windy on the day of the tour.

Scooter tourers are always looking for an excuse to ride somewhere.

I suggested to Ken a few months ago that a great way to see all of the state of Florida would be to visit every county courthouse.

There are 67 counties, so 67 courthouses.

And some counties retained an old one when replacing it with a new, bigger and more modern courthouse.

It has proven to be a worthwhile excuse to ride.

we see the state and meet many nice people working in and around the courthouses.

For this adventure, I rode Rocket.

It proved to be a perfect scooter for this adventure, ending up back at home just under 93,000 miles on the odometer.

And a new friend, Dan, joined us on his Smax.

Ken, Dan and I had a nice 210 mile run from Avon Park to Stuart, Ft. Pierce and Vero Beach to see three courthouses.

It was the weekend, so no inside visits, but the ride was great.
