Central Florida Russian rig riders...

Post by MartyL » Tue May 30, 2017 10:52 am

I'm trying to get an opinion of folk who are interested in a dedicated evening at the,"Ace Cafe" in downtown Orlando for a gathering of Russian rigs. I spoke with the Ace Cafe's chief marketing person who showed me their event calendar. Friday's looked open but there are other evenings during the week available. This could tie in with other events at the Ace Cafe. So I'm looking for feedback. Any interest in this? Once I get an idea what night works best I'll contact their marketing man and set it up. :clap:

Hi Marty, Friday nights sound pretty good. I usually get off early on Fridays. How does Bi-weekly sound?

I'm bumping this thread to see if we can get some riders to meet at the Ace Cafe in downtown Orlando Thursday 8/10/17 at 7:00 p.m. Thursday is bike night at the Ace Cafe and it is usually a good turnout of various motorcycles. The food at the place is good as well as the atmosphere. Usually by 7:00 p.m. the Florida afternoon rains subside and it cools down some. Anyone interested?

Sorry, no pics this time. Had a cop follow me for a few blocks on the way home. He laid back to see if I was going to speed, fly the chair, or something. I kept it mellow and he eventually passed me. Thursday night is bike night at the Ace Cafe and last night was the biggest crowd yet. The Ural's get allot of attention. One Ural was a brand new Custom CT from the new dealer in Longwood,Fl. My camo Gear Up gets much attention. Lots of Harley's. Allot of other brands as well. Good time...

Sorry, I read this too late, but I think the wife and I will just start going on thursdays bike night just to get a night out, hope to see some more Urals!
Would be interested to see the custom from Longwood, we poked around there but nothing was custom and they weren't even interested in ordering me one in the color I wanted, and I am an Indian buyer from them. Led me to Holopaw to get what I wanted!
