New England to Daytona Bike Week?

I don't have plans, but am getting the itch. Anyone going??? Riding? Trailering?

I'd love to ride from RI, but understand the weather in March can be fickle up here.

If it matters too anyone, I've got a friend near Charlotte, SC who will let me park a trailer at his house. Might ended up trailering there, then riding the rest.

I wish I could, but it doesn't look like this is going to be the year.

I have an '08 C50.
Everyone makes me ride at the back because of my Morton Violators.

Interested in a replacement gas tank, in black, but I'm cheap

Hoping to ride, but the trailer is on standby...which might be a better option, as I have a place in SC that I could leave it, and ride the rest.
Long term forecast looks good...whatever that means!

If we are talking about the same Charlotte it is in NC and about 4 hours west of 95. Although the route down 81 and 77 brings you right through Charlotte but it is a bit longer than 95. It is a prettier ride because you are west of the blue ridge mountains and not as congested as 95. There are a good amount of trucks though.

I have done both multiple times Worcester to Savannah.
In my opinion depending on the day of week, 95 can be a beast with a trailer through NYC, DC, Richmond.
