    Default Heading to Key West

    Hi All, Wife and I are heading to KW next week and thought there was at least 1 member here that lived there.

    Just looking for someone to chat with about bikes, KW, etc.

    Weather is looking incredible compared to the Northeast.

    Years ago, I rented a bike in Key Largo.

    Is something like, what, 35 miles to Key West.
    What I didnt account for was that it takes well over an hour, something closer to 2 hours to make the ride. (and that was early November).

    Had 850G for 14 years. Now have GK since 2005.

    Largo to Key West is 100 miles and 2 1/2 hours if nonstop.
    Some days, you can see the light at the end of the tunnel, and then
    you realize it's the train coming.

    Just because you're offended, it doesn't mean you're right.

    Oh…. Apparently I don’t recall the specifics…..
    but anyway, took a lot longer than I had allowed.

    Me and 3 other guys rode down in 2019 during thanksgiving week from MS. Went down the west coast of FL and back up the east coast on way home. Fun trip, drank to much so it’s a blur at times. Shutdown Duval St two nights but I couldn’t do the 3rd night, to worn out. I was the oldest of the bunch so I had a good excuse. 2400 miles round trip. I was on a 2017 Honda Africa Twin. Other bikes were Triumph Street triple, 2 Triumph Tigers.

    Nice place to visit.

    Oh, something I think I maybe do remeber correctly:
    In KW the traffic signals are on post on the street corners (not overhead), easy to miss.
