Crazy amount of people grabbed a pic and some Cuban food and made my way back to laid back Key Largo. Beautiful water down here and great weather!
Now you're talkin', If you can stay for the Friday evening fish fry at Sharkey's, your tounge will slap your brain. It's behind the Holiday Inn at mm100. Bon appetite......Pop

Wreckchecker..........Looks like you'd better be trimming that fender extender or you'll be checking your wrecked fender after hitting a big bump! They've been known to catch on the front of the bash plate.

If you like to see more I'm posting my solo trip to Morocco here: http://traildreamer.com/en/category/...-en-solitario/ not all it's translated to English but it is comming bit by bit...

It was an incredible trip!!

Certainly takes Morocco off the bucket list.

You could have saved a lot of video editing and just posted .

That just looks so NOT fun to me. Heat, sand and full ATGATT.

Call me when it's on sport quads.

clear out to get a clean photo. Be fast, the police show up right after.
Trolley driver pulling 3 loaded cars full of people called me out. As he comes to the bouy he says this is the most southern point in the continental US and that is the most illegal parked motorcycle on Key West. I turned around raised my arms
and said take a picture. His passengers thought it was funny. Cruise ships must have unloaded it was wall to wall people. I had wanted to go to Hemingway house but the line was down the street. I didn't even look for Mel Fishers museum figured it was the same way. I ate some good Cuban food and rode back to Key Largo. Great weather down here down and beautiful water.

Exactly the reason I don't go all the way down to KW any more. Key Largo is plenty, after one visit to KW. Bad time to be going home, weather is rough for the weekend. Stay safe.......Pop

Cruise ships. I had not thought of that one. I want that photo sans tourists. Night and bring a big flash.

Watch!

That SW Motech Skid Plate with the Fender Extender. Good bump and you'll bust that front fender. Easy fix is cutting an inch off the Extender or installing a deflector plate at the top front of your skid plate.
