Bike Week

Bike Week has begun. Mine is the silver GoldWing. Yeah, that one, parked right on Main Street. I am here! I bought the t-shirt. I got a patch for my jacket. Another item off my bucket list. :)

Back to Titusville

We rode back to Titusville today. Enjoyable ride with time afterward for relaxation. John and Rae ran off for gumbo. I took a ride around happening downtown Titusville. :) Actually, I found a Memorial park that made for a great opportunity to unwind.

Key West

Traffic and toll roads made the trip to Key West start with a little frustration. But once we were out on Key Largo, the ride was heavenly.
And now my bucket list is officially shorter by one item. I stood by the southern most marker for a picture. First of four corners.
Someone said that the sunset from Key West is pretty nice. I'll be back for more.

Fort Lauderdale

The trip to Ft Lauderdale from Titusville was a slow change from warm to almost too warm.
Let me say that again: Almost too warm. AAAAAaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaahhhhhhhhhhhh..........
Dinner with Rae's brother Bill and his wife Bing. Awesome Chinese buffet. mmmmm....

Hope to grab a photo off of Rae's camera later.

In Titusville

We made it in to Titusville. 8 hours of drive time stretched into 15. The scenic route across 90 was scenic. And slow. And routing around the tool roads meant that we got to enjoy the journey. A lot of journey. :)
The day started cold, 45 degrees. It got up to 70, which was sooooo nice.
Tomorrow will be a shorter day. :)

We're HERE!

From the left, Me, Ron and Dad.
Yes, that is an unprotected scalp. No, I did not go without a helmet. I wear one while I ride. But in the time that it took to get the bikes unloaded from the trailer, washed and packed up, I did get sunburned. Silly me, with no sunscreen on yet.

We're OFF!

Out of the snow and in to the sun!

Heading out in the morning...

Well, tomorrow, I will leave behind my family and set off south.
The bikes are loaded. The gear is packed. A last minute snow storm made the decision to trailer the bikes a smart move.
I will anxiously review my list of items to bring, checking and rechecking, until I fall asleep.
We roll out early tomorrow.
