I rode this a couple of years ago when I purchased my Valkyrie in Pompano Beach. I encountered a few problems but my biggest problem was being new to Florida. I failed to realize that even though I was heading north I had to go south to get over to Hwy 27. I made three loops before I finally found the cross over. The day I made the ride (early January) it was in the mid-50s, much colder than it had been the previous day (80s) and on the entire ride I only saw ONE other bike on the road and that was at the south end of the ride. The traffic was heavy the entire ride but not a problem. I was actually on the backside of a storm that was dropping snow along the Florida-Georgia border so the wind was gusty and fairly strong. I was happy to be on a bike as heavy and stable as the Valkyrie (my first ride on it and I fell in love with it). The ride was longer than I had anticipated but I only had to fill up once along the way. It was full dark by the time I arrived at my destination. Going through the Everglades there was nothing to break the wind so I had to switch from my light jacket into my leather jacket to stay warm. It was a good time to take a rest stop so I enjoyed it. No problems along the way but not much to see.
