Guys want to try this again?
When you thinking?
Any day is good for me
I'm going to be working in Tampa later this week and next. Can anyone recommend a motorcycle friendly sports bar to watch the Indy MotoGP race in Tampa this weekend? Any dealerships airing the race? Thanks!
Go check out tampasportbikes.com. they might be able to point you in the right direction
Got some motorcycle stuff listed on CL and it's local. Just thought I'd put a link to it here if anyone is interested. Didn't want to put it on the ADV classifieds as I don't want to deal with the hassle of shipping....
Checking in from Tampa. I'm new to adv bikes but not to riding. Need to meet some locals to ride with!
I just got a '13 F800GS
Congratz on the Bike. That's a nice ride.
How long have you been in Tampa? Do you know some sport bikers from TSB?
What part of town? I'm downtown...Channelside area. I ride a V-Strom.
I'm game for some occasional adventures. After my last solo adventure, I have decided that benching 400+ pound bike by yourself multiple times is no bueno, nor probably smart
Try a 550# bike.
Lets get something going. Even if we just meet up and shoot the breeze.
Sounds like a plan, Richolam/green swamp has about a month before the hunting season starts. I don't know about this coming weekend yet, since the dealership has my Tigger as a hostage (front hop issue).
Hate to say this....it'll still be hopping when it comes back. They all seem do to it at low speed. Mine does it around 38-40mph, real mild since I resprung the bike. Stock suspension was way too soft.

It does seem there is not straight solution. Is power sports your dealer?
Thanks. I'm from here originally but lost touch with everyone I used to ride with (sport bikes). I live in Temple Terrace so I either ride north to Floral City area on weekends or east towards Bartow.
Idk of any trails, just all the sportbike roads lol
I'll check this post often. I'm definitely planning to ride Sunday and possibly Saturday morning too.
I often take the GS in the same directions as you do and have the same problem. I know the roads for sport bikes (used to ride a 2010 R1) . Sometimes I end up at the Hess and shoot the breeze with some of my sport bike riding buddies but I usually just take off alone and explore.
Try taking your bike down to Myakka and surrounding areas. some good exploring there although not to many dirt roads.
PS. You probably know about the shamrock restaurant and their awesome burgers in Floral City
Just realized you're the same guy on TSB I was talking to. I like the roads north of me since I live so close. When I started getting into bikes I lived in Fort Myers and would rarely make the trip up here to do a north run.
I also spent some time in North Port and have family in Sarasota so I know some of the Myakka roads too and some offroading places in North Port but haven't done those on a bike yet. Looking forward to riding with you and others too! I want to put as many miles on this bike as I can.
Yea I know Shamrocks, haven't ate there since '09 and I drove by it Sunday on my way home from Gobbler. I wish I remembered the names of the guys I used to ride with. There was a Brandon with an RC (the Honda vtwin 1000 sport bike) and some others..
