Key West and Back in One Day

Kinda nuts, it was a long ride.

Left at 9:30 am and got to Gilbert’s in Key Largo for lunchtime … and decided to power on, despite looming thunderstorms, all the way to Key West and back in the same day.
Got to Key West around 4 pm. Hung around at Mallory Square for about a half hour and then blazed back home again, getting back to the house around 10:30 pm.



The spikes in the elevation chart are just the bridges along the way down there.

To Sebring and Back!

The AmenMoto Motorcycle Adventures Club took a nice long ride on Saturday, up to Sebring International Racetrack and back. We had some nice unexpected adventures on the way.

Setting off from 4-points in Boynton Beach at 7:30, we rode up to Lake Okeechobee and stopped at Port Mayaca, which is a beautiful dam & lock that is used to outflow water from the lake. Just a really nice view.


I was absolutely freezing on the ride there. Fortunately my pal Doug lent me his jumper for the ride up to Okeechobee (the town, not the lake) where we visited County Airport and the Landing Strip Cafe for breakfast. I had a delicious “Eggsadilla” and sausage & toast. Really great, and we watched the planes take off for a while.

There we also met a local MC full of Army & Air Force vets, who told us that a huge bike rally was going on in Sebring. Since we were headed that way anyway, this sounded great to us.

The ride from Okeechobee to Sebring was very nice, and we found the racetrack deserted. Doug showed us around the track and showed us some of the more famous turns on the track including Turn 1 and the Hairpin.

The ride from there to Clewiston for lunch was interrupted when we saw skydivers jumping from a plane, so we diverted over to the Airglades Airport and hung out at their jump camp for a while. Really neat folks! They are funny, they jump out of perfectly good airplanes and think riding motorcycles is dangerous!!


Then we continued on to Clewiston for a very late lunch at Roland Martin’s Tiki Bar, followed by an uneventful ride down US27 and across I-75 back home.

A New Bike for AmenMoto

Well, it took a little while but I’m in the Bonneville club now.

I really do like this bike a lot. So much more power, I really need to be careful. It wants to run out ahead of me.

This is a 2017 but it’s not “brand new,” it had <2000 miles on it. Someone bought it and the color didn’t suit him so he traded it in a short time later for another T120 but in a different color. To each their own, it worked out good for me.¬† I didn’t pick this color – after all, the bike chose me. But the color combo, black/white with a thin gold stripe, has really grown on me in the past four days. My friend’s wife says the bike’s name is Domino, so there you go.

Here’s two pics, if you want more they’re at my instagram account, I don’t want to flood you guys with Triumph pictures.
