Wife and I are Leaving for florida on november 20th from pennsylvania to sarasota (weather permitting)...It could be 30 degrees when we leave and be 80 degrees when we get there.Will be packing the trailer with cold and warm weather gear.My buddy and his wife are planning to go along on their wing also,planning on riding about 500 miles a day,that means 2 1/2 days to get there.Planning 2 different routes in case of bad weather in western north carolina, we will take an eastern route as the mountains could bring snow at that altitude.When its time to head for home and there is bad weather in virginia and pennsylvania (snow, icy roads, etc.) we will rent a U-haul to get the bikes home...anyway I'm getting excited.....

What's the route you're planning for western NC? And the timeline for it? Might want to meet for coffee somewhere if close enough.

The closer you ride to the coast, the warmer the weather will be...the mountains of the carolinas and georgia can be cold for sure.....

No matter how you do it - do it and enjoy. I am heading down that way in January and plan on staying until 1st of April! If I can get out of Cincinnati before the snow flies I should be OK. 3 extra months of riding will be great again in 2009!

:cool:

Ride safe!

You will probably be happy to get down to the flatlands on the eastern side of the gap.

Yep, maybe we can find a bar-b-que joint and sit down, enjoy the food and swap some lies. :cheeky1:

Just be sure to keep us posted as the day gets closer.
