Badger (and anyone who's interested),

Looks like we won't be making a Key West/South Beach ride before Christmas :cry: . Holiday plans, family, office parties, etc. keeping everyone pretty committed this month. A number of guys including myself are definitely planning on going Jan. 10th or 17th. If that works for anyone who wants to join, stay tuned. Will be leaving out of Ft.Myers/Naples on Sat. early a.m. and heading to South Beach and then through the Keys and to Key West mid afternoon. Staying overnite and return midday Sunday. Always a great weekend and anyone welcome.

Dave,

I just noticed (thanks Lamont), "49" degrees in Daytona and "62" in Ft. Myers. You guys need to annex that part of Florida into Georgia! No wonder you're anxious to get to S. Beach and Key West. Brrrrr!

Ed,

I can see it now. You reading that post about Key West. You notice my new local weather stats (thanks Lamont!). Your eyes slowly close and you drift off while thinking about your thirty degree temps. Grey skies :cry: ...

... You picture the palm trees, T-shirts, bikinis, parking the bikes along Gulf Blvd. for a cold one, getting home from work and hooking up with the boys for a nice evening ride. You can see yourself cruising S. Beach with all the couples staring at those Bosses and all those pretty girls who are telling their significant others; "if you were a real man you'd have a bike like that", you're cruising down US 1 toward Key West with the 80 degree temps, torquise water and fish jumping :D , and then.......

....the dog barks, the cat meows and you awaken :shock: . Snow tires, slush, shovel snow, 10 layers of clothes, sleet, etc. C'mon down Ed.

Tim,

Don't think for a minute I was smart enough to figure the weather report out myself (thanks Lamont) :lol: .

Whenever you next get down this way and are doing the Keys, give me a jingle. Having grown up in S. Miami, I know lots of nooks and cranny's around these parts.

Have also spent lots of winter time in Montana, BC, Alaska, etc, I know what you're going through. I really enjoy that stuff....for about a week, hee hee. Stay warm Tim.

Badger (and anyone else interested),

We're definitely doing Key West Jan. 17th 8) . You're welcome to leave the trailer at Gary's in Naples and we're all departing from there Sat. a.m. Stopping at S. Beach then down through the Keys with a few stops and terminating in Key West. Gonna be some rubber in the air on Duval Street that night, hee hee :shock: . Overnite and back to Naples by early afternoon Sunday.

Not sure how many are going but so far there are 6 confirmed. Zip me an email if you need details.
