    The ride to Florida would have some great stretches, but isn't it sort of flat and congested with a lack of exciting roads down there?

    Yeah, right! The breeze you feel in July in Florida is created by the mosquitoes buzzing around you!

    Count me in - have done some riding in Florida on several different mounts, and spent five days at Bike Week 2004 in Daytona.

    That's such a fine idea that Barley and I are thinking of heading to Rally 2012 via NC and TN!

    The town and surrounding area know how to handle events, there is more than enough hotels, places to camp. Lots to see and do, places to eat for every taste, fun rides to many interesting places. Who said that every national meet site has to have nearby twisty road racing roads? Besides how cool would it be to give the locals a third motorcycle event in one year with 10 thousand motorcycles that they cant hear drive by.

    Really.... this is a realistic idea
