Miami, Key West And A Street Glide.

A few weeks back we took a 5 day break in Florida. Much needed after working in a cold wet Europe with a bad case of the flu. Stepping off the plane at Miami airport and into the tropical heat was a great start to what turned out to be an amazing holiday. Checked into the hotel at Miami Beach then dashed over to Peterson's Harley Davidson and picked up a 2014 Street Glide Special. Very nice people they were too. The bike was pretty much brand new and was the perfect machine for the 165 mile ride down the Keys to Key West. It's kind of hard to put into words how good that ride was. I can tell you it was warm, the views were spectacular, the bike was fast and comfy and Key West is a great town. If you haven't been before then I highly recommend planning a trip down there soon. Never mind a rental car, it really doesn't get much better than being on a bike no matter where you are but down there was just that little bit special. Although a word of warning. Handing back the bike on the way to the airport was not that easy a thing to do.
