BMW Motorcycle Club of Northeast Florida Rally

I am attending the BMW Motorcycle Club of Northeast Florida Rally being held at Camp Blanding, January 12-15.  The organizers have ask me to be a seminar presenter at a couple of the breakout sessions.

I'm giving talks on using FLIR technology on a motorcycle and about George Wyman.  Should be fun!  You can follow my ride out and back on the map below.

Sat, 1/14  Another day of fun at the Rally.  Coffee and mingling in morning.  Many of the Rally participants are planning self guided rides in the local                country side.  Beautiful weather with partly cloudy skies and temps in the 70s

Fri, 1/13:  Reported to Rally central to sign in and check out the amenities.  Larry, one of the Rally organizers who invited me, got me squared away with the table for my George Wyman display.  Later I had an opportunity to check out the presentation equipment in the large conference room reserved
for my presentations.

After the event dinner tonight Larry wants me to do a static display of the FLIR PathFindIR mounted on my motorcycle for folks to check out.  Should be fun!

Thur, 1/12:  The weather was clear when I woke and the ride to Camp Blanding just southeast of Lake City was nice and easy.  Go to my destination shortly before 5pm.  Checked into the nice two bedroom cabin reserved for me by the Rally organizers and meet up with my contact.  Who, by the way has a couple of Shiner Boch's n his hand.  Got to love an experienced Long Distance rider.

Wed, 1/11:  Had a great ride today with temps in the high 70s.  Had heavy cross winds so it was a bit turbulent.  By about 5pm the weather turned wet, so, not being on any schedule, I stopped for the night.
