RIDGEFIELD, N.J. (1010 WINS) -- We'll have great weather over the next few days as we gear up for summer, and the holiday weekend. Although the highest gas prices in four years are not that exciting.

It could be a tale of two traffic jams with working stiffs clogging the roads as usual and the day-early holiday road trippers piling on. That's why the Hard Knocks Motorcycle Club got a very early start. And where are they heading? South of course -- but all the way to the Florida Keys?

"If we can make it there, yeah, why not? To the last mile marker why not? That's a good adventure, should get a bike and try it one day," a club member said.

They may run into some wet weather along the way. Conditions are supposed to be nice through the end of the week, but storms on Sunday and Monday threaten to turn cookouts into washouts.
