Default Trip from CT to Fla

I may be crazy, but I want to deliver my softail chopper to Fla next summer/fall so its there when I retire in Jan 2019. Trailering it would suck but riding would be fun, and I can fly home. Trip would be secondary roads only, spread over 6 days riding plus a couple 2-day stops visiting my son near Ft. Meade and friends in Charlotte and Kings Bay GA. I layed out this rough route with a little help, anyone have any ideas or comments?

looks like you will have to put goo[dot]gl where the ***** is

This is the bike, I figure a bag on the bars and one on the passenger seat (folds out) would get me there. Maybe carry a gallon of gas too?



Am I nuts or what? My last long trip was 2300 miles in 7 days to visit my son when he was stationed in Ohio and back, but that was on my road king.

Thanks!

It would help if you could try to re-post the route.

OK - but this forum won't let you link to google maps. You have to type in goo[dot]gl where the ****** is here:https://*******/maps/fQDHnfsdzj42

I would definitely pick up Hwy A1A out of Jacksonville & follow the coast
down as far as possible then cut across . A real nice ride down by the coast .
