I'm getting ready to retire to Florida where the roads are more predictable.

Good idea. Florida. The land where enormous old Cadillacs back into traffic with no warning and meander around all day with their blinkers on, (that's known as an "eventual left.")

You can have it!

Of course, you'll find things to take pictures of...

Of course, if you ride the ruckus you'd be at retirement age by the time you get there.

Sorry... that one little section over the BRM is 'okay' I guess, I expressed all that just as a heads up to say there's many roads that are more challenging and interesting to ride. Guess I didn't need to go into any of those "whys"...

Oh, I forgot high traffic. I find it a bit frustrating pulling off and waiting for a gap big enough to take at least a half a dozen turns before backing down to avoid someone's back bumper. But, hey, we all have our own ideals... (and ideas...)
