Welcome, rboett! The area around the Withlacooche is where BMW NA held their GS gathering back before Bike Week 2002. It offers a lot of challenges and I would not ride some parts by myself. Regarding Dade City et al, that is a very nice area. I was over near St. Leo college last year and found the roads to be surprisingly good! And, it's a whole heckuva lot closer to Fast than Daytona. There are obviously a few members around and if you are organizing something, count me in!
