This Week on the Island 09/16/2007

'This week on the Island' is written by Doug Bennett and is an update to friends about happenings in Key West last week. Everything is true except for those parts that are lies.
The pictures this week are Century 21 (1) It is there (2) then it's gone. Another condo project going up across the street.

The Weather: Lots of rain, very humid.

Not much happening all week but the Motorcycles will be here this weekend.

Can you say Waterspouts! They are here.

Bike Week. One death on Friday when a 70 year old motorcyclist died when he hit the rear of a SUV and he and his 36 year old girlfriend were thrown from the bike. The accident occurred in Marathon in front of the Hospital. (He was 70, she was 36. He had a good life).

Pig Roast Friday and Tattoo Contest and a Bikini Show Saturday at Schooner Wharf.

Friday motorcycles everywhere. The Poker Run has begun! In all my years in Key West I have never see this many motorcycles. The estimate is at 15,000 to 20,000 bikes. Go to and click PHOTOS then click CYCLES.
