Up here in PSL the riding is pretty decent along the coast and intercoastal. If you're close enough we should meet up one weekend for a ride.

Hi John, Sounds good. I live in North Palm Beach County, but I just bought my CB500F at the Honda dealer in Ft Pierce and drove through PSL on the way home on US1. Nice ride.

I am really liking this bike, just feels very solid, easy to ride and just enough power.

I think there is an Air Show near you next weekend. I may ride the bike up there and check it out.

Hi Mark,

Ocean Blvd up Jupiter island is a nice ride. Then at Hobe Sound you can take old Dixie thru downtown Stuart and around thru Rio to Indian River Drive which is a great ride up to Ft. Pierce. I generally run up and down Indian River and Hutchinson Island on the weekends. It's a nice relaxing ride which helps clear the mind.

Let me know if you come up. I'm always looking for an excuse to go for a ride. I'll PM you my cell.

It is a fantastic place to live.

Are you in the Treasure Coast?

I just moved to the west coast...grew up in Tennessee and my father in law lives on Ozello Island....There's a twisty road 12 miles long that runs from Crystal River to the island that's a hoot...Rode my 500 from Chattanooga, Tn in a winter rain to ride it...About 60 miles north of Tampa, 20 miles north of. Homasasssa Springs...You can google it and catch many previews on YouTube...Also a good restaurant right before you cross the causeway to the island....Worth the trip...just watch for sand on road washed up by high tide if conditions are right...My wife's dad owns the big wooden house across the bay from the restaurant...

Another rider from South Florida here.

Took the ride from Ft. Lauderdale down Highway 27 - Krome - To US1 down to Key largo this past weekend. Fun ride, even in the rain!

Wish we had more rural areas to ride with less traffic though.
