    Are you going to be in the Keys only or will show up in Broward or Miami Dade County? If so. let me know and maybe we can go to a ride together.

    I always like to take a ride over to "No Name Key" from "Big Pine Key". Take the road a couple miles and across The Old Wooden Bridge (now cement) to the dead end and look for Key Deer along the way. You'll pass by the "No Name Pub" which is world famous for their pizza! GREAT STOP along the way!

    Another less know spot is the abandonded "Bat Tower" on Sugarloaf Key... a quick and uniqe stop in the middle of nowhere.

    You can also take a cool boat ride over to Pigeon Key for a historic tour... it's casual, very interesting, and we ejoyed it! The office is a train caboose at the north end of the "7 Mile Bride" in Marathon.

    Hey Mmusicman!
    Can't find a wide white wall rear tire for you X?
    Here is my solution: http://www.mbzponton.org/valueadded/other/tirepaint.htm
    Best way to apply it is by heavily sanding (grinder)the area to be painted and use an air pistol for better result.
    I did mine with a brush(205 Michelin)and it took about five coats. However, the brake's side gets dusty quickly, and must be cleaned with Westley'sŪ Bleche-Wite Whitewall Cleaner

    , just be carefull with the aluminum rim, it could get stained.
    I don't mind the cleanning. My bike looks super hot now.

    Depending on which way your coming or leaving, there is a great bike spot out at Cafe 27, on US27 south of I-75 a couple miles. Vendors, bands, tiki-bar & restaurant, and lots of bikes! Thur nights, and Sunday's! And yes... Hooters Pembroke Pines on Wednesday night draws BIG crowds! Great outdoor music too!

    @Caballo Loco: I have white walls both front (Dunlop) and rear (Metzeler)... thanks.
