go from 4:58 to aound 9 something. That is right outside of Crystal River. That is just one of the nice roads we went on there. I THINK there are a couple more in that video, but I wanted to get video of our larger group so there is a lot of 4 lane driving too.

@brittct when are you planning on riding through here? I know you said this summer, I meant do you have more of a solid date?

Clicky
brings back memories of that 70s ride i think we crossed back over on on 10 and went back and forth between 301 and 95. we road suicide strip rt 58 in virginia then onto the bay bridge tunnel and up the coast home to ct the whole trip down and back 10 days and less than 500 bucks, one bridge i always hated and still do is the delaware memorial i don't know why, i just do

dumb bikers don't get to be old bikers

Maybe July 7-15, figured July because it looked like that was lowest annual rainfall compared to June and August.

Here is the link to the route I think would be best. US route 301 all the way down until highway 27 then highway 1. Figured we would take 2 days to get the Homestead. Then the third day Homestead to key west. Three-four days to mess around key west then back to NC taking 2-3 days to get back.

Yea no where near Tallahassee, but looks like a good route. I think there is some construction on 121.

Maybe that will be done by the time we get down there! Do you think July would be the optimal time to go??
