    Road up through Lake Placid yesterday. Took a few pics along the way. What a beautiful and relaxing day it turned out to be considering the crappy way that my day began. :clap

    Damn; that's our turf.
    We were at the View for lunch yesterday too. They have the best Reuben sandwich.
    Then went on to http://www.henscratchfarms.com/ to buy some good homemade wine.

    Camille and I are trying to revive her Suzuki.....It starts at this point but when you twist the throttle it dies...... Seafoam next try...see if it is the carbs....new battery and has gas so she is itching to ride but as we all know bikes don't like to sit too long......

    :puke1 Looks like a wonderful day for a ride......

    Mambo you must be working today and Dave congrats on your new place where ever you land.....

    Catch up with you guys later....another day......

    I am going out for an errand run now at least.....

    Thanks Paula!

    Main jet clogged? Sea Foam, in about 2 or 2.5 ounces per gallon of fuel, and 40 miles of riding (if you can get it going) can work sometimes - but it takes miles or a long time of running to expose the jet hole to enough cleaner to make it right.

    This is some of South Florida's finest trails. You have to be a little creative to find them. They are South of Jane's Scenic Drive. (Start south of the West end.)

    Ugh... west Florida shouldn't be in this thread teasing us easterners.

    It is all south Florida... but it ain't.
