I'm not sure my shit would make it to Florida or that I'd want to ride it that far anyway. I once drove straight thru in the TJ to Panama City in 21 hours.....don't think I want to do that on a bike.

I still need to clean the carbs so that it runs on more than 2 cylinders

I just bought it last year for $200 couldn't beat that. 79 Suzuki 750

fr3db3ar, think trailer. Not a smart idea to try to ride thru the mountains this time of year. And if you don't have a place to stay, start looking.

Have not got to bikeweek in about 10 years. Was getting out of hand then, and it is a lot worse now. Motel 6 costs about $140 per night, everything is overpriced, over-crowded, and over-hyped.

If you go, get out of town and do some riding. The Keys are great, southern FLA has some good spots. Even go up near Ocala and such. Anything but downtown. Just my thoughts.

Yeah, no shit. We're taking a trailer.

Right now the plan is to stay in Orlando and just "visit" the traffic jams instead of live in them. Like you mentioned, we'll go other places.

BMFMike,
Did the ride down one time with my partner. We hit the mountains about 10:00pm, and as we hit the top of an exit ramp, watched the two cars in front of us spin 360 and go off into a ditch. Turned out the entire ramp was black ice, and they closed the interstate right after that for about 8 hours due to accidents. Myself, rather enjoy the riding there, rather then fight to get there. Figure I ride enough, no need to prove anything.

Now if you go, and hit the Keys, try the Lorelei in Islamorada. Great bar, local type, with a good 2 man band called Case and Davison. Great sunsets, excellent food, and good prices.

For all those going, I hope you have great weather while you are there, and manage to avoid the traffic jams! Have a good ride in the sun.

RJ
