If people wanted to make a SS1000 out of a trip to Florida we could start at the Hampton Inn in Aquia, Va and end in Homestead, Fl. Maps out at 1030 miles on all interstate.

That's what I did. Homestead is a great place to stop and rest before enjoying the remainder of the trip out to Key West. Plenty of hotels.

Bruce, this was not an unpleasant trip at all. We do our deep water decompression dive training down here and I was observing an EOD Company I sent down here.

Pretty sure some of you don't frequent the "Orange Crush" threads, but I thought you might find this one amusing...

Yamaha/Triumph/BMW/KTM Adventure Bike Comparison

I'm not trying to get anyone to drink any Kool-aid...personally, I thought the biggest difference on the big mud hill was rider position. The BMW rider was duck walking while the KTM rider was standing on the pegs....


Particularly liked this photo


All that's missing is a little water

Hopefully it won't take as long the next time I have to do it.....

Then again...."Honey, I really need to stay out here and get this maintenance done...yes, it does really take me all weekend"

Been on this site for a bit, and always looking for something to do in between. Glad to finally find some riders in MD.
