well, a little known fact about myself. Im a big motorcycle-a-holic... and I am in the process of loading up the bikes and Friday morning Im heading south.
Im so excited about this. This will be my sixth year down there. A whole week of absolute chaos. About 600,000 people show up for a week. Traffic is a nightmare, but there are some beautiful rides. A nice beach, and a heck of alot of really fun people.
I have taught my dog to ride in a backpack, and he gets to go. Im so excited about taking him. He wears goggles and everything.
I would love to be able to ride down (you can get alot of lip for trailering) but it would be an 18 hour ride thru possibly ALOT of bad weather. Not something Im willing to do.
While Im down there I have made plans to go swimming with some manatee, in the Crystal River, and Im going "sky diving" (it's not real skydiving, its in a wind tunnel). You get about 6 minutes of "dive" time. FREAKIN BLAST!
So, wish me luck... and heres to keepin' the rubber side down!
