Thanks for all the suggestions - some great ideas here! Picked up two bikes near Fort Lauderdale, then due to unforseen delays, we weren't able to leave FLL when we had originally planned and lost a day and a half of travel and had to pretty much slab it to STL. All was not lost, however, we did make it to Deal's Gap, rode the Dragon, etc., what a great bunch of roads! Nice and HOT in Atlanta - 100 deg. and 100% humidity - whew. We had to leave the bikes in STL and fly home to get back to work, my daughter and I will fly back out tomorrow or the next day for the fun FUN trip from STL to DEN. Nothing says whoopee, this is fun like riding I-70 through Kansas and eastern CO! Ok, maybe 285 in the TX panhandle...
I think everyone thinks the drivers in their state are the stupidest - I used to, until riding in FL. Holy cow, you Floridian riders win the stupid driver contest hands down! People reading books while they're driving, while the wife is in the pass. seat - why don't you read and she drives, or she reads aloud.... ???? Sheesh.
Again, thanks guys for the great advice. See you on the road!
