Is there a good safe place to park and LT with helmets and clothing that can not be placed in the side cases while my SO and I sight see in and around Miami?

I carry a duffel I picked up at Sports Authority it folds down REALLY small and can hold all my gear and my helmet. I have motoport kevlar and this stuff does NOT fold down at all...



I travel to Miami on a regular basis and have on occasion dropped my bag at a hotel baggage area for a few bucks and come back and suit up in the lobby.

I have never been asked if I was a guest of the hotel I just walk up and ask if they could hold this bag till I come back later to leave.

Tip the bellman a few bucks and away you go!

I got tired of trying to get everything folded and stuffed into the side cases when we stopped to visit the sites. I bought a vinyl coated cable lock with a built in key lock. Pass the cable through the luggage handles, through the arms of the jackets, the chin bar of the helmets and you are done.

Go to any bicycle shop and just pick up a length of cable with the ends closed. Use your own pad lock as most people own an assortment. I did that for a canoe that we keep on our dock.

Dan,

The reason I do not like leaving the stuff "out" is that a vandal can do some damage trying to steal your stuff.

The least amount of farkels, apparel, etc that are open to the prying eyes of a would be thief the better.

Trust me, the hotel thing works every time.

Paul - Good reasoning....

Got some interesting weather heading our way. Could make the 10th a wet 24 hours!

Might want to park north of town, like in Jacksonville! :histerica

My wife who is from S. FL says to go to the bus station and put your stuff in a locker or check out one of the storage places. She thought they might rent a space by the day if they had empties. Some money better than no money.
