No good riding? Depends on where you are in the state. North of Tampa there are definitely nicer back roads then down where I am in the center part of the state.

Yea we dont have nice mountains and such. But there is some nice rides around. Plus side is you can probably ride 300+ days a year or more if you aint afraid of rain.

I rode to and from work 50 miles round trip almost every day for years only on one occasion did it get so bad I had to seek shelter at a gas station for 2 hours because the road was under water . Car where going in the ditches along the road. Iriden in a long of rain. It,s most dangerous when the rainy season just starts and the oils make the roads extremely slippery . Sounds like You know how that is.

LOL Yea I still follow the old Boy Scout Moto. Be prepared. Rain gear rides year around. When I was stationed in Oklahoma it was same thing. I had a few times out there and Texas had to just pull off in an underpass and wait it out. When frogs go by ya with life jackets its bad.
