This was great ride, 3122 miles from my driveway and back...This is one ride for everyone to do at least once...
Billy and Jerry are great to travel with, except Billy brought his MP3 player for his bike all I had was my radio and I got to listen to every political ad known to mankind in about every language as well..This was the big joke going down there coming back the election was over and radio became normal..Still a great trip and I fell in love with conch fritters...
Thanks Billy and Jerry for great ride...

Alright Larry, Jerry, and Larkin, here is a route that I was playing with today and I want to know what ya'll think. I picked a couple of hotels just to see what was available in the areas that seemed like good stopovers. The first one is a Holiday Inn in Tallahassee (free breakfast) for $67/room. The second stopover on this route is a Holiday Inn Express (free breakfast) in Bonita Springs for $80/room. That gives us a short 5.5hr ride on Wednesday to get into Key West. We could either go straight to Key West or stop in the everglades for an airboat tour. There are outfits all along Highway 41 in the everglades, we just have to pick one. I need to be at Key West airport by 5:05pm
If there are 3 of us, we can share one room on the way down to cut costs. If there are 4, I don't know if ya'll want to squeeze that many of us into one room... I put holiday inns on the map because I need a couple more nights to get to the next elite level with that hotel group.

Good evening, after the meet up at BWW last night most if not all show more interest in the route heading thru Panama city, so we decided that we will head to Panama city and if the ones that wanted to ride down thru Ocala can break off where it is best... This was talked about due to it was more coastal ride down and some felt it would be more relaxed.. I'm booking a room in Key West tonight and Jerry said he would split the room....We will be arrving in KW on Wednesday and leaving out Monday morning...A house was mention and decided against due to the cost factor and with some leaving Saturday...So our first day is Panama city and anything after that is a bonus that day....Any thoughts please post them here....Thanks Larry..
Also keep in mind it will be getting dark around 6 so most wanted to be off the road by then..

Some of the other things that were decided on in the meetup... The plan is to ride like hell and get to Ocala, FL the first night. Then wake up and get on the road a little later on Tuesday, say about 8am. We will then make it down and do an air boat ride about 1pm or so. We'll then head to Homestead or Florida City for the night. Then on Wed, we'll make it down to Key West by early afternoon on Wed. Most of us are going to be leaving Key West Key/Key Largo on Monday morning. And others are leaving on Saturday. The plan is to make the ride back to Nashville in 2 days instead of 3.

Alright, I'm definitely in! My wife has booked a flight into Key West Airport for Nov 7 at 17:15. So that matches up pretty well with our arrival into Key West. We are also going to tie this into a wedding we've been invited to in Key Largo so on the 9th we are going to head up there. Then on Monday the 12th, Jacqui is flying back to Nashville from Miami. So I'll be riding towards Nashville as soon as I drop her off. So I'm definitely down to share a room for the 2 nights on the way down. And if anyone wants to ride back up with me on the 12th and 13th, we can split a room for the ride back.

Larry,recon any of the Ladies will be going? and can We kind of estimate the Cost of this Trip? Really would like to make this one!
How many Miles total and how many We plan on riding each day and are some of us guys willing to double up on the Hotel Rooms to
cut down on the Cost?
Thanks: Big Ron
