Are we going to get a rainy season?
I agree with most of what you said here. The tire tip is a bit off I think tho. knobby tires provide the best traction for probably 99% of the riding anyone will do in south florida. Slick tires are only good for clean, dry fairly smooth pavement, there they provide a smooth low friction ride. On wet pavement of any type smooth tires will slip in a corner partly because the water under the contact patch will float the tire and partly because there is so much sand and oil in the streets.
Good tips on the rest

When it rains I put my bike inside my SUV and drive everywhere in the left lane real slow like the rest of the
S. Florida drivers with my hazard flashers going full blast.
Oh yes, I give signals only after I make lane change or turns. I never look in the mirrors, that might ruin my make up. And of course I dial and text continually but I do wear my seatbelt to avoid tickets and you never know when someone who drives like I do might hit me.
I'd like to applaud the Florida "law" makers who ignored the dangers of texting, dialing and holding a cel phone while making sure the resulting accidents are less severe by giving tickets for non seat belt use.
Do they publish their IQ's or is it a state secret ?

Pavement should be made with rubber so that way there wouldn't be risk of slipping. http://www.starpaving.com/ #!earthwork-and-utilities/c1v6 2 Actually I think I would become very slippery in the rain.
