one week

Well we have are first week in Flatistan all planned. Destin to Key west. We will be back in Destin about the 13th of feb. Are there places we want to ride from Destin pleeese don't suggest Disney or Epcot or Lego. We are pretty green as far as off road goes but can do 700 mile a day on the boulevard. I realize that the weather up north of Destin can be unpredictable in Feb but we don't want to miss any must see's. Hope to do the tail on the way back to Canada. It will be - 30 in the morning here tomorrow. We can handle rain but draw the line now at snow.

Destin? That is a great area to visit. Much better then Key West IMO. Ride West down Santa Rosa Island to Ft. Pickens. Nice ride for FL, and some neat history.

Next, we were told to hit up the Naval Air Museum in Pensacola. Its incredible, and its free!

I am sure there is much more to see around Destin. Some locals will chime in.

Destin area!

If you are going to be in Destin area hit up the Pendacola Area Riders site. Someone will be happy to show you around. We have plenty of street and dirt riding in this area.

I will be happy to send some Garmin track of the area if you like?

Hope you have a great time in the sandbox...

BTW - There is no snow in Florida. Count on it!

I don't always ride street bikes, but when I do I prefer VStroms
