Default Riding the Florida Keys

What a blast- I've never been so happy riding in a straight line before, and the water is so clear and torquise. We started in Miami and got as far as West Summerland Key, so about 50 miles short of the bottom- but the bikes had to be returned by 6.30pm so we had to turn around and head back. Great day though, all 10 hours of it.

That's one I can cross off my bucket list

A few more, although a bit repetitive.

The Indian was awesome and electronic cruise control is amazing- I was taking 2 handed photos on my mobile.

The size of those bridges in the Keys is mind boggling- I mean the longest one must have been 15 miles? Incredible really.

Beautiful pics and area. Makes me miss the times I've been there. And the longest is 7 miles, but seems like forever.

WE went down in the car a couple years back over labor day weekend. Nice trip down, but the trip back up was almost 2 hours longer because of traffic trying to get out.

Did you go on the weekend? During the week there is like 1/2 the traffic and we went on Monday so not too bad.
