    Ok. Let's meet at the 2 Minute resturant in Zepherhills at 8am Sunday morning for breakfast. We need to get an early start because it is a long day. I hope Motodutch can join us and show us the northern twistie loop. I have the maps if he can't make it. Lunch at Poncho Villas Mexican resturant in San Antonio. Kieth, where you at?

    I would like to join y'all but I'm just 8 weeks out of prostate surgery and they found a blood clot in my left leg (getting old is not for sissy's) so I will be laying low for a while.

    Hey guys. Here's the plan for Sunday. Meeting at 7-11 on the corner of Apollo Beach Blvd and Hwy 41 at 9am. Gonna ride the DBM 41 South NY Pizza loop. We will hit all the best back roads in Gulf City, and Terra Ceia on the way to Parrish for lunch at Ferraras Italian Grill. Yummy. After lunch we will work our way to Duette and ride the Tail of the Gecko on the way back north to Riverview. Come one come all.

    What better way to rebound from a garage mishap than by riding this weekend maybe even both days? Ok don't answer that.. :)

    I've heard of and been around the green swamp along with having seen the 2uptouring page but I can't get a detailed enough view of streets and turns.

    Hence I may try the loops @motodutch shared a couple of pages back.

    Hopefully the traffic and snowbirds sleep in leaving the roads a little quieter...
