    Thanks Fred. I've enjoyed riding with you and the club for the past 20 years. Started with an ST1100, a PC800, and my previous and current K1200LT.

    Our pilot son and his bride reside in Daytona Beach, FL and we look forward to being only 30 minutes from them with us just west of Deland.

    Our new house is on a canal with access to the St. John's River with hundreds of boatable river miles, and access to 1500 lakes. Got a canoe and will get a pontoon boat. Lot's of wildlife and great fishing. Also in/near some nature preserves and national forests. Gonna get a street legal dirtbike and do some exploring. Also have a nice screen enclosed pool to get away from the heat and mosquitoes. We're looking forward to it and expect y'all to come visit for Daytona Bike Week, Biketoberfest and races. Our motorhome will double as a guest house. Lot's of room for travel trailers and tents if you prefer.

    Where the fooook am I going to get my Amsoil now? Are you leaving your SE Texas oil kingdom to Fred?

    Good luck though, it's been fun over the years. Lots of good times and memories. Be careful to watch out for all those old people on the road, they can't drive worth a darn.

    I've been gone doing other things recently, so haven't seen you in a while, but I enjoyed our rides out there. Enjoy the retirement in Florida...

    but... but... but who's going to bring reality and facts to our oil threads?!
    I've really appreciated your online presence and demeanor. and the occasional box of amsoil. thanks for sharing the knowledge.
    That K1200LT might be a little big for Jennings GP, but there are bound to be other places to ride.

    Enjoy the sunshine.

    No problems getting Amsoil or tech info from me. I'm keeping my accounts and just a phone call away. Of course, if you want to deal with a local tsba Amsoil dealer, give derf/Fred a call.
