Well, it’s the 31st and it’s finally time to begin the road trip that we’re all here for. We collected our bikes from Eaglerider in Orlando and discovered what models we’d been assigned.
Craig = Harley Street Glide
Crawford = Harley Fatboy
Alex = Harley Ultra Glide
Which is pretty much what we all wanted. However in a hilarious and predictable turn, I (Alex) have ended up with a bike even more orange than my hair (I thought all Harleys were supposed to be black?!)
So with bikes all organised we set out for the stop-over for the first day’s journey; Daytona Beach. The sun, sea, and sand greeted us as we reached the West Coast and Atlantic Ocean which would form the start point of our coast to coast road trip.
After some top notch pizza and a top up of fluids to stave off the dehydration, we journeyed on into the remaining hours of daylight and beginning of the night for a great evening ride with the sea lapping at the side of the road all the way.
Finally after about 8 hours riding, we drew into our first overnight stop, the historic town of St. Augustine, and found the only hotel which still had vacancies; the Scottish Inn.
We’re still yet to find anything remotely Scottish about it.
Tomorrow, onwards to Georgia..
