I am coming from washington DC and driving the DX down there (i dont own a trailer or SUV).

Any suggestions on how to make the 12.5 hour drive bearable.
I'm thinking about breaking it up into a 2 day drive.

Take a bunch of asprin before hand and wear earplugs! Or you can stop in the Carolina's and visit some of us there for the night!

I did Washington (VA Actually) - Savannah in one shot. It was not too bad. I left very early in the morning (5-6 am) and made it to Savannah late afternoon. And then did a few hours the next day to Daytona. Was pretty bearable.

You are right, that is close. We were just up that way not too long ago. Thought the dealer in Columbia would be open on Sunday but NOT. Great looking dealership though. If I make another trip up that way I will send you a PM and let you know. I would like to meet some more V riders in the area. If you find your way down this way let me know. My wife and I enjoy riding and usually make it a point on the weekends.

What? Which one, Thunder Tower? We are too open on Sundays! 12-5! The one right off of I-20? Yeah we are! I work up there weekends! I'll be there this weekend, if you want to swing on by. Can't say much for the weather...looks like rain...maybe...

:) I'm not sure which one of the dealers it was but cool that you work at TT on weekends, I'll remember that and maybe hook up on an employee discount

I figure on running down - only 6 hours from here. Need to check out the Corbin store to see if they have the hard bags for the CAWs out of the prototype stage - when I called in July, they were working on them. (As you might guess, I can't stay away from the bagger stuff). Might take a run down to the Keys or something also - who knows. Come along if you want.

I'm planning on making the trip up from Ft. Lauderdale. Still not sure about where to make a reservation at. Anyone planning on going up from the south, we should make some plans to meet on the way.
