Day 2 (Kelly & Warren) Llanes ES

Mostly spent sleeping on ferry as nothing much else to do! Arrived an hour late at Santander so needed to make up some time to get to our 1st hotel before dark. Arrived at Llanes about 8.30pm where the receptionist was waiting for us so she could lock our Harley away into the courtyard, every conversation was done by google translate! Hotel was better than we could of thought with its quaint shabby chic decor and Juliet balcony with a sea glimpse. It was time for food and wine and…

Day 4 (Hollywood Florida)

Well, we were all feeling a bit tired this morning when we met for breakfast at 9 ish. Again the weather has been so kind and we have sunny clear blue skies for our ride back towards Miami. But first we had to do the usually tourist things and stop off at the Southernmost point and get a photo. So with a few images taken we were back on the bikes and on our way out of Key West via Duval Street for our last time. We are not sure…

Day 6 (Back Home)

Last night was a terrible night for Lorna she has been fighting off a cold all week that I gave her during the cruise and that combines with the alarm clock going off at 4am and a battery warning beep every 30 seconds on a smoke alarm in a room under us we were both knackered and not really feeling it, so Lorna really wanted to get home and to bed so the others were great about this and decided it was fine for us to cut the trip short…

Day 5 (Cocoa Beach)

Well after last night we were not ready for a hard day in the saddle BUT who would imagine what would happen today regarding the ride to our next destination. Right we all gathered by the bikes and decided that we should at least try and aim for Cocoa Beach which was showing as a 5+ hour ride without any stops, now this we at best thought would be doable but we were not best pleased about the thought of a stop-start journey for 5+ hours so we headed off…

Day 2 (Key Largo)

Good morning, well this morning I think we were all a bit tired but we managed to get to leave early as planned to try and make up for the shortfall we had yesterday with the shortened stop. So at around 8:45 am we were rolling out of the hotel’s car park and on our way to Key Large via a few stops along the way. None of us had breakfast so we were hoping we could take care of this in Naples which was about 50 minutes away, so…

Day 1 (Punta Gorda)

Well, today we had to change a few things mainly because 2 of our friends were not able to make it on the trip because of personal family matters and we would all like to wish the Dickens Family out warmest and heartfelt thoughts to you all. Myself and Warren had to return the rental car we had before we could head north up to Stormy Hill Harley dealership to pick up Warrens Road King. This meant that Warren had to drive the car and I followed on my bike,…

New Gear for trip

Looks like Warren has been buying some goodies for the trip. A Half helmet and Sena headset add to pair with my Sena SMNH10 so we have comms which will be a first for me which I am looking forward too. And a pair of pull out travel bags for the panniers, which makes the end of the day a lot easier.
