Eh should be a cake walk in florida.
Totally doable, but he may be right about the young part^^^.
I made a 120 mile trip from Grand Forks ND to Bemidji MN last Friday in a snow storm with temps at about 30 degrees plus a 35 knot headwind (couldn't see shit). Took 2.5 hours while I had about 70lbs in my backpack worth of clothes, guns, and ammo and wearing camo hunting waders. The bike only has sliders and turn signals on it, no extra way to carry luggage or deflect wind.
I may have looked really stupid, but when it's duck season, I'll do anything to get out and hunt!
Oh yeah I'm 19.
In florida, where everything is a straight line, it should be a piece of cake. Might take a few hours but just stop every 120 miles for gas and keep on truckin'.
Yeah, I'm young. Turning 21 in a couple weeks, but with my back injury, I feel like an old man. I feel up to the task since I love road trips (Jacksonville to new Orleans to Dallas in 13 hours by car, two fuel stops, one stop to pick up a transmission).
I'll be going straight down I95 and have done the trip by car many, many times, so I'm familiar with the roads. No challenges at all other than the Miami traffic which is cured by lane splitting. The only thing I really wish I had is a throttle clamp, I might try to stop by the bike store tomorrow morning just for the hell of it.
I rode from my place to Ocean City Maryland 2 weeks ago (~200miles). I broke 3 vertebrae in my back April 2013. Going down was ABSOLUTELY terrible (due to traffic) coming home was very pleasant and felt like no time at all. My back doesn't still hurt from it, just gets a little sore even quicker now...oh yea had the baffle out of the akra the whole way ?... Just turned 22.
As posted above, my biggest concern is you're not eating enough or drinking enough. It's got to be a tough balance to be watching all that (straight) Road, watching for crazy Cagers, stopping for fuel, food, and plenty of water to drink, keeping an eye out for PoPo, while probably always thinking about where to pee pee.
