awesome ride folks. met newhere and sd2ftl ay Dade corners at around 9:30. also hooked up with a new Glee rider who is not a trooper, but tagged along for a while.
rode down krome avenue through the redlands area, for those of you not from here, it's the historical and still active agricultural area of Dade County. stopped at Robert is Here to buy some fruit and hot sauce. then headed down into everglades park to go check out a Nike Missile site from the cold war. much to our chagrin, after blowing $5 each to enter the park, we discovered the the missile site is closed until December. wouldda been nice for the knucklehead at the park entrance to let us know, seeing as how i asked her to confirm directions.
snapped a couple of pics from behind the fence.
a pic of what i think may be the top of a missile silo
we then headed further south down US 1 to Card Sound Road for lunch at alabama jack's. neat semi-biker joint with horrible food and so-so cold beer.
after lunch newhere and i headed to key largo down card sound road while sd2ftl headed home to do chores. a quick u-turn in key largo to shoot up US 1 to the turnpike for a blast back home.
the weather was about as perfect as it could've been. was nice to meet up and talk stroms, bikes, women, etc etc with some like-minded folks.
our plan is to ride north to central florida for the next ride. so those of you in this area or even from the gulf coast, feel free to join!
