very cool. any plans to hit any dirt on the way up? I'm trying to put together some routes that will incorporate some dirt that would be suitable for a "big" bike.

I'm riding up too. I may have to go early if I
they have me do a lecture. I'll keep you guys posted. I'm thinking of either swapping to a set of more aggressive tires or bringing them with and swapping out there.

Any recommendations on service/repair shops (or people) around pompano beach?

I need front brake service, air keeps coming out when I bleed it.

There is a lot around Pompano. I recommend Apex Racing Services. http://apexraceservices.com

Tim Hunt there is an experienced wrench and rider, easy to work with, very customer service oriented.

I just finished a ride from WPB to St. Augustine, went up A1A. There were some nice roads, no rain, but hot as hell. Definitely want more curves. Thinking about trying US27 north to Sebring, anyone do that?

When are you headed that way? there are some very enjoyable routes through that area that will keep you off of us 27 for the most part.

I just did it. I took 710 to 98 to US27N to get to Sebring from West Palm. Then on the way back I took US27S to 80E.

Any other road suggestions is appreciated, I am on a sport tourer though so no off road for me.

Man, we need to get you off of the super slab! if I have time when I get home tonight I will put a map together in Google and send it to you.


did you do the ride as a day trip or an over nighter?

I did this as a day trip. I would love to day trip around 200-250mi, loops or whatever that return me to Palm Beach County.

I did A1A to St. Augustine, will probably do A1A to Key West (those are multi-day trips, not because it takes so long to get there, but just because I want to spend a few days there).

I plan to do about 10hour to get to Asheville, NC............a lot of that may be slab, but getting there faster will allow me to enjoy NC more. If someone has a route out of Flatistan that is good for going to NC or TN please let me know.
