    Computer says...no. But, this is 144+ hours, and long range computer models have been off this year. Always subject to change. Other models agree, mainly it getting swept up into what may be a massive nor'easter in Nova Scotia.

    Is this modeling for Humberto? I think @rider1150gsadv is talking about, soon to be a named storm, TD 10.

    Jerry looks to not likely be an issue for SE FL.

    I think Dave is right. I can't think of a single fun curvy road in S FL. There are some nice scenic rides like the Keys and A1A. You have to get up to the Lake Wales Ridge to have any elevation changes or curves.

    I can think of a couple, but they are less than a mile long. :lol3

    Back when I was in SE FL, hwy 78 (around Alva) was the closest thing to a curvy road.

    Okay, then, apparently we all agree SE Florida has no "exciting" rides. But Gingerbeard says there do exist a few "scenic" rides, and as there also exists the possibility I will occasionally have to spend some work time in Miami I'm now wondering the obvious:

    What are these Scenic Rides?

    Loop Road comes to mind just of off Tamiami Trail aka US 41.. Lot of the rural roads between US 29 and US 27 north of 41 have some nice scenery if you like farms and orange groves... Having said that however, my brother and I usually end up north of the big lake and riding the levees for a bit of dirt if we decide for an all day ride 300 miles or more.....

    I did the ol' loop again Sunday. Weather was awesome. Up 27 to holey land, then south to the snake and 75 back to 27 to the café. The Miccosukee gas station has free Air (tire was couple lbs low) and a water hose to rinse off the white mud blocking my tail light and tag...so that's nice. Wish I left the dirt on, would have been the only muddy bike at the café. Saw two other clean BMWs . Rest were Harleys and a couple Vulcans. Been dealing with a dead battery so I finally bought a new shorai and went for a nice ride. Picked up all the mud from puddle jumpin on the side road off of rottenburger. I actually used the heated grips on the way home! LOL

    My brother, myself and a mutual friend of ours rode the big lake loop on Saturday and on Sunday my brother and I did a ride to Everglades City, lunched in Immokalee and rode the back roads incl Snake road back home. We ended up riding 450 miles between the two days. I even tried out my new heated jacket as I had not used it yet. Ready for the Winter rally in Starke....

    the vintage motorcycle show was pretty cool last weekend in Dania Beach. I should rode to it 'cause they had plenty of moto parking, but I brought my son and didn't want to two up with a broken passenger footpeg. lots of bikes!

    Went there with my brother and a friend and had a good time. Another friend of ours had a BMW with sidecar in the show. Weather was great and lunch at The Field was a good bonus.:drink
