Florida Mar-April

Hi Guys,
Looking for local knowledge.
Heading back to Florida (Disney) with the family March / April (5th time).
I am going to miss Daytona Bike Week Ahh!!.
Is there anything else from a bikers point of view I should be looking out for ?.
Maybe BMW dealers, to have a look at bikes for sale or parts?
I wont have much time available away from the family to hire out a bike.
Anywhere else to go other than the usual Disney theme parks.
I will be staying in the Davenport area - any great eating, drinking places?
Any ideas welcome.
Regards
Defaoite

May you be in Heaven half an hour before the Devil knows your dead

Re: Florida Mar-April

Hans, I think you need a dive master on that boat to observe and make sure that the swimmers are safe!

Re: Florida Mar-April

This may be old news for the site, but Jacksonville is finally going to have a new BMW M/C dealer. By the time you're in the area it will be open.

They are in final prep stages now. Parts, clothing and bikes arriving daily.

It is located on the southwest side of town, off I 295, on Wells Road between US17 and Blanding Blvd.

I know what I'm doing this summer when I bring my daughter over from Texas.
