    What's the plan? Wifey want's to Ride.
    The Istachatta/ Sleepy Hollow loop is always fun. I usually tie it together with Tail of the Grouper at Ozello Key.

    Anyone want to try and meet up at Ace Cafe on Thursday? Been meaning to check out bike night there and with fall starting this week the weather should hopefully be a little drier. I am thinking around 7 PM.

    Ace Cafe was interesting last night. Probably 500+ bikes. All the normal Florida stuff like Harleys, sport bikes, and groms.

    A group of adventure riders called GlobeBusters showed up. Its a world traveling motorcycle adventure tour company. They road from Ace Cafe in London to Ace Cafe in Beijing and then to Orlando. 20k+ Miles and Orlando was their finishing point. Talked with one of them most of the night. Really interesting stories. They were also showing pics from the trip on the TVs over the bar. Glad I went.

    Captive in Flatistan...
    Haven't put my Fuoco on the street yet, but if you don't mind being seen with scooter trash, I'd like to check it out. I love pulling lookylous from the Harleys to the diminutive 3 wheeler...

    Microtom,

    I was at Ace in my Ural sidecar and saw your bike since I am always checking out the ADV/DS bikes .
    I have a DRZ and know some dirt roads in Clermont, and some in Ocala area.

    Hey @ruans187 I saw you pull in. At least I saw one Ural. The was a cool rig.

    Going try to make this a regular thing. I am thinking first Thursday of the month could be the advrider night at Ace Cafe. Hope to run into you and some others Thursday.

    I'm always up for a ride, if anyone else is. There's some off pavement riding between winter garden and clermont called 5 mile road. Few different roads that can be fun. I've been down most of them. I like to wind my way through, then head up CR 455 from clermont and over across sugar mountain road.

    Then head back down 561 and into winter garden.

    Good couple of hour ride.

    Some of the sand is deep, most is fairly well traveled. Does get really nasty after a rain.

    Few times some of the good 'ole boys bring in trucks / jeeps and I think try to get stuck on some of the hills. Some pretty big ruts.

    Let's ride!!
