The right folks, those on the inside are apparently putting together plans for an Official Broken Spoke Saloon reunion party. The Broken Spoke Saloon Reunion rumor was passed on to us by Dan and Starr.
The Broken Spoke was on Main Street in Leesburg Florida and was the place to be for bikers in the area for many years.
on Tuesday, July 21, 2009, Tom Haugen, a local motorcycle rider most of us at Riderinfo know, and his wife were in a wreck in Leesburg. Sadly, Tom lost his life and his wife is hospitalized in Orlando recovering from very serious injuries.
Godspeed, Toni. We hope you heal up quickly and completely.
Rest in Peace, Tom. We will miss you.

Ride safe out there folks.

The weather was splendid and many motorcycle riders were out enjoying the gathering on Main Street.
Customs bikes and trikes were everywhere and quite a few women riders were out and about.
There were about 58 bands that played various venues in the Main Street playing all your favorite covers as well as top notch originals.
We went to see Mean Season, an original band from the Leesburg area, at the tropic. It was a much needed break from the heat
Saturday night we took a ride down to Leesburg to meet up with David O who hosted the annual Leesburg Bikefest Worker Party for those that volunteer to help out on the streets during the event directing traffic and keeping folks safe. There was quite a large crowd of locals so we got to see almost everyone that rides in the area. The party is as much a social event as it is a recruiting event. David and company had good grub and cold drinks available and all had a good time.
It was not much. I got out for a bit and headed to Leesburg. I checked out one of the places Tugs frequents.
Beer was cold and the band was good. I got to see an old friend behind the bar, she's still so pleasant to visit. It was nice.
I saw Ron, met his Sister, and saw Rick and Diane too. Great to see you folks!
One of the things I didn't like about going to Leesburg is traveling on US441/27 and back. It's a divided highway and those making left turns
