How is the riding in the Tampa area?

I may have the opportunity to move to the Tampa area working in St. Pete.

I ride sport bikes, but as luck would have it, I am getting old, fat, and due for a new bike.

I ride a lot and commute to work now regularly on my bike.

I have spent most of the last 2 months in St. Pete and my only hang up in just moving is the area riding.

Will I be OK if I get off the beaten path?

Moved out of Pinellas County about 15 years ago. Traffic is horrible. I live in Brooksville about an hour and a half north of St Pete. Lots of twisty roads up here as well as state forest land to ride dual sports in. Pinellas isn't much for an enjoyable ride, but most areas around West Central Florida have some good riding.

I will be in Auburndale this winter. I would like to see some of them there twisty roads. I'm a old sport bike rider but these days spending time on a R1100RT.
