I've been watching posts,am a new member, and I've seen a lot of posts from all the places I used to live. Like Seattle, San Jose and vicinity, etc.etc! But I'm now a Geezer in Florida with a restored 64 Bonneville and not many contacts. What's up with that? I know you are out there. I just need to know where you are!
Regards!

Ed,

An advertiser here and Triumph rider named Donald keifer (Don) owns a shop in Palm Bay not to far from you. You may want to check in with him.

http://www.britbike.com/ecbc/Contact.htm

Also, there is Steve Wiley in Tangerine a town approx. 30 miles north of Orlando on Orange Blossom Trail (S.R.441. They do club rides.


Steve Wiley: The Triumph Shop, Tangerine, FL (352)383-7752

That is where they also meet for the Wiley Ride...I believe the 1st Sunday of every month.Many members of this forum are members of the group that make that ride.

Hello from Tech 108. I live in Venice, Florida with a 1966 Triumph TR6SR. Are you near St. Pete?

Thanks everyone for you replies. Jon, I HAVE met Don and in fact have made a few purchases from him. I guess I was just whinning a little bit because it just seemed like everything was going on where I "used to be"! (;-) I'm sure it's just a matter of "getting my feet wet" again! (;-)

Ed,

Glad you have met Don, he is a good guy.There are a lot of British bikes in FL. The vast amount of H-D's and H-D clones is what you see most...but they are there. I think that a lot who own them keep them hidden rather than ridden and only the special events bring them near and on the road.
