That's much too generous an offer, Chuck. West Palm to Key West is only about 250 miles right? Pretty slow miles too if I remember correctly.

I think I agree with Elton and Ed. (Oh no.)

It is a long ride..takes somewhere around 8 hours as I recall.

Generous, some would say I suppose, but what are friends for? If you'd like to experience the feel of an 890 pound hunk of american iron between your legs, the bike is yours to enjoy...just watch out for Randy to crawl up on the heated pillion....

Take the Harleys....but you may be surprised to see more than one chrome V-Rod in Daytona.

It has long seemed that EVERY Harley ever made is at Daytona....but I know there are even more at Sturgis (hard to imagine). Last few years the custom sport bikes have been a growing presence, but there are still more of every type of Harley than anything else.

That's because Daytona Florida is NO PLACE for a sport bike. There are no twisties, no elevation changes, no place to enjoy the throttle....

The first MV Melanie & I purchased was from Florida (2000 F4 750). The sellers other bike was a Honda Goldwing. Two different ends of the spectrum right there.
