Moving to the area

Hello, i'm moving to the area. I prefer most sport touring bikes, and wanted to say hello before I got busy packing up and leaving South Florida. I'm looking forward to some good roads to enjoy without going to far. I've also got a few questions on insurance for the state, so I'll be checking out other sections of the forums.

So Hello all.

The wife and I have to sign a lease int he next few days, She got a job out that way. Since I work IT I see 6 billion jobs, which is nice compared to South Florida.

Note: there are good roads in South Florida despite what people say, they just take an hour or two to get to where I'm at now. Its all flat and straight to get there though.

Have you guys lived in Florida? There aren't for roads. The riding is much better here! I came here from Tampa. I love this place. The economy is 5000 times better. Jobs are much easier to find. I do miss the beaches, but I have a much better life here.

If you moved around the start date on your join to this form yeah, you left fl when it got bad. Things are nor all that great in south florida. Note just looking at local roads ill get some experiance. Trackdays wont happen for me until I can find some stable work. Either way part of the reason I'm moving to the area is my wife has a specialized career and had a great chance. I've always been very employable, and found jobs paying well in places people say they don't exist. Vim still searching the forum, and I like what I see. I'm a believer you have to take the good with the bad.

Not true, there are plenty of turns leaving the neighbourhoods. I'd say at least 3-4 before you get to the freeway.

I've worked IT for 16 years, and also have an associates in computer sciences. I worked 11 years for a commercial title insurance company from 1998 through 2008. From 2008 to 2012 for a doctors office while they were going corporate on terms of internals. Both jobs were helpdesk teir 1 through complete sys admin responsible for CAM/Deployment/Integrations/Takeovers. Now for diehard corporate america experience, I've worked for a SunTrust owned company that made the top 3 Forbes listing for wealth managment. I can work helpdesk through sysadmin but I'm a little weak on phone systems and networking. I get vlans, much of the base knowledge of swithches up to port channeling, but fall a bit on bgp etc etc. I don't mind rotating on call shifts, but I'm not on the available for 24/7 list for less than 6 figures a year. I am scalable to salary based on responaibility. I've worked for companies in their changes on the way ro being some of the best in their fields. I do not have to have that, however there are situations I will never involve myself in. I'm not looking for a gorever job but a 2 to 5 year run would be great. I understand there aee no promices.
