Our Ride to Key West

Last week my girlfriend and I flew to Fort Myers Fl and rented a Ultra Classic and rode it to Key West. We tried to get a Road Glide but the dealership we went to didn't rent them. They said there was not enough demand for them. The last RG they had in their rental fleet got 6000 miles on it in one season compared to 20k on the SG and Ultras.

The weather was absolutely beautiful there, it was in the 80's everyday. I'm wearing long sleeves because on the way from picking up the bike we got stuck in traffic for about an hour in Fort Myers Beach and I got a pretty good sun burn which later turned into sun poison, of which I am still suffering.

Beautiful views:

Nice pics, thanks for sharing. Looks like you had fun even though they didn't have RG's, maybe they don't rent them because those who know better already have one.

Great ride! Cool pics too!

We did it last year after Daytona. St Patty's day weekend is not the best time to be on a bike in Key West!
