Default Key West or Bust. The Hard Ride blog

Hi, I'm new to this forum but not to motorcycles. The only thing I have to share at the moment is my motorcycle blog, Hard Ride, which is based on my upcoming trip from central Ontario, Canada to Key West, Florida and back. The prologue to the blog explains why this is a 'hard ride'. Hope you enjoy it.
Randy

I created an introduction card ( like a business card ) for this venture.
It will help explain the videographing in hotel lobbies and restaurants along the way, lol

Hey! That's pretty good work, Randy!

When you get there, be certain to snap a few pics of you and the bike @ "Mile Zero" the beginning/end of US Hwy 1. THAT would make a cool Intro-card.

I regret that I was too leery of bein' tossed into a jail-cell or something to get someone to snap a pic of me when I did it in '07, as "No Parking" signs are everywhere on the streets of the Key.

If you like seafood, there's a placed called the "Barracuda Grill" or something like that on Key Largo (or maybe it's the next one West? mem'ry here.). Run you probably $15-$20/plate, but really good food, really good, friendly staff, and nice atmosphere. Also that they're open Late (as I hadn't eaten all-day, and was making my way back from Key West in the Night) helps a lot.

Miami traffic leaves a lot to be desired when you're on a bike, no matter what time of day or night. Watch out for 'Gators on the road through the swamps!

Thanks for the tips. Ya, I LOVE seafood. And don't worry, there will likely be some great photos to accompany my blog.

The plan at this point is to head through Buffalo, across 90 to 71 south to I75, all the way to the Florida Turnpike , then down 27 to Sebring to visit friends before heading to out motel in Marathon. The trip home will likely be a totally different route ( 95 north to 77 to 79, etc).
We'll be looking for camping spots along both routes ( tenting ) and I'd appreciate any helpful tips or recommendations .
Thanks much.

I've updated the blog and started adding some product review videos to the blog videos page. I'll link them on the motorcycle.com forums product review page, or you can check them out here.
