|The tiki bar meeting location|
Unlike most club meetings I've attended, Cigar City has a Saturday morning meeting with a ride afterwards. Very fitting for Florida, the meeting was held outside a Tampa Harley's huge tiki bar. Donuts and coffee were served and I got to socialize with some really great people.
One of the main reasons for my attending was to invite them to join us on our trip to Sturgis in 2014. I gave a little of the history of our club and hopefully got a few people interested in the trip.

After the meeting we joined the group for a ride planned out to New Port Richey. About twenty-five of us took of on a bright and hot sunny Florida day. Unfortunately, a mechanical problem hit ride leader Mark Freeman's bike half way through the ride. His throttle decided to stop working.
While the group waited for Mark to get a tow back the dealer the heat was getting the best of us. We said goodbye to our new friends, and headed for home.
