Jan 28 ’18 Ride to Vero Beach

Kountry Kitchen Ride Report

Eleven riders rode south to the Kountry Kitchen this past Sunday. Three more from the Orlando area caught up with us shortly after we arrived.

Motorcycles: two waterheads, three hexheads, two oilheads, two airheads, one parallel-twin (belt), one pre Hinckley vertical twin, one Fabio Taglioni V-Twin, a flat six and a 650 thumper.

The eatery was packed to the rafters and seating for 14 was a challenge. As we waited outside the staff kept us apprised of the situation and eventually sat us at four adjacent tables. The food as usual was excellent. Also, a big welcome to Bob, Marty, Pete and John who joined our group for the first time.

After breakfast, remaining riders headed across the 17th Street bridge to A1A and then north to Wabasso Beach road where we crossed the Indian River again. The bridge over Wabasso Island is one of the most scenic in the area. Once back in the Melbourne area we had to lend aid to one of our vintage operators who had a failing alternator on his ‘74 Ducati 750 GT. Thirty minutes on the charger and he was on his way.
