Sandollar M/C Grand Tour
(A short version)
By Doug M.
| We, my best friend and wife of 35 years and I, decided
after a couple of recent incidents
including a blowout at 60 miles an hour, a loss of power to the headlight
at night and the failure of the final drive coupling on our 23 year old
V45 Magna, that it might be in our best interest not to stray too far
from our home territory, thus the Grand Tour (A short version). Waking
up to a beautiful Saturday morning, having survived Friday the
13th, we agreed this was the day to go.
We headed out of Niceville about 8:30 AM and headed North on Hwy 285
for our first letter in Mossy Head, then proceeded East on Hwy 90 to
D,A,and C in Defuniak Springs, Argyle and Caryville.
After back tracking to Westville we found 181 North and Headed for Leonia
and a quick stop at the local gas station (yep, they’re still as
friendly as ever) we picked up our first L.
Leaving Leonia we headed for Samson (S) on our way to the Piney Grove
Superstore, about five miles north of Sampson, for a much needed lunch
and butt break.
An iron butt we ain't. After an enjoyable deli lunch with good company
we proceeded north on Hwy 87 toward New Brockton to collect a much need
we headed west on Hwy 84 to the city of opportunity, Opp , and our
Continuing west on Hwy 84, we snatched up our second A then made a
quick right turn onto Hwy 29 followed by a quick left turn onto CR
there were a few miles between turns) on our way to Red Level.
