Is this a realistic plan.
The first leg of your trip is going to be hot and sticky,
daytime temp's will be in the low 90's with the humidity around the same percentage,
at night it might cool off to the low to mid 80's,
if you're not used to that kind of weather it can be pretty tough riding.
Start early, drink lots of water and hide in the AC for a couple of hours in the afternoon.
Many people think you can ride year around in Florida,
well you can but whether you want to or not is up to you.
My bike doesn't get a lot of miles in June, July, August unless I'm outta state,
if I'm in Florida I'll most likely be out on my boat.
