I would like to hit as many dirt roads back there as possible. I'm guessing it's the route you guys tried last weekend.

I have off this Sunday, so... I guess I'm ready. My bike is geared for highway use, so I shouldn't have any trouble keeping up until speeds go over 100 MPH.

I have very little interest in any pure-pavement ride just for riding's sake in just about any sane direction we could head to on a one-day ride from here in south Florida.

I used to commute on a motorcycle every work day for over one and a half years, almost exactly 40 miles each way (so 80 miles a day).

There very well may be roads I'd enjoy (I'm open to suggestions), but as I still commute on a bike every chance I get (now only 3 miles each way for work ), I'm no weekender looking to just sit on a bike and ride to bars or restaurants.

I'll leave the final decisions up to others - just give me an idea of the planned route so I can google-map it and see if it's of interest.

Let me revise that - somehow it went from a 50% chance to a 20% chance.

Should be clear on Sunday!

...

although I'm nt sure I trust the weather website anymore
