gl man!

I make that drive all the time in the cage. Boring but not too bad, be careful in LA and florida for cops. And the drivers in South Florida are the worst.

be safe

made it to Orlando around 4:20am local time. Rode about 1050 miles. only part that sucked was my hands got really really cold. I had 4 pair of gloves on at one point. Yeah I rode out alone and stopped maybe 10-11 times for gas and stuff. I'll give you guys all the details later, I'm going to Disney World

The most important piece of gear I had was definately the rain suit, it blocked the wind like nothing else.

rode straight through, stopped once for about an hour in Alabama to take care of some business for my brother. the other 10 or so times were about 20 minutes long.
Saw a couple accidents, one van that was carrying a trailer clipped a sedan and flipped. People and luggage were all over I-10. Wasn't many cars backed up so I guess it just happened. I just passed it on the only piece of road that was left, about half of the shoulder. Got yelled at by some bama popo.

It got really cold when the sun went down. I had on 4 pair of gloves at one point and was holding the engine to keep warm.

The trip took around 18 hours (I stopped in Orlando) I had a cousin that was visiting a friend and got there around 4:30am Eastern time. I could havemade it to Key West if I wanted to, I never got tired at all, just cold.

Just changed my oil today, checked everything. I'm enjoying the weather here very much, but not the idiot drivers. Saw a bike wreck on I-95 but the guy was alright. I took his carbon fiber slip on over to him. was a champagne color sport bike.

Dunno when I'm coming home, I think we're gonna go to a bunch of Superbowl parties while I'm here

Made it back to Houston around 12:30pm today, hit some bad weather in Louisiana last night so I stayed at the Delta Downs Casino Hotel. Real cheap room and I won 20 bucks on Star Wars slots.

Altogether I rode close to 3000 miles. I went to the Key West one day and came back 4 hours later. Got the Iron SaddleSore 1000 finished off. That's what started this whole fiasco.

I'll put some pics up later.
