I get my tires mounted at Suzuki of Sarasota, near I-75 Exit 205.
That is not particularly close to Ybor City in Tampa, but it's a nice store.
If you are here over the Nov 12-13 weekend, check out FLC2C 2011
Several of us will be participating ... you know ... the usual gang of idiots,
as they say at MAD Magazine.
If you happen to ride US-321 south from Columbia SC,
you will like State Highway 3 from US-321 to US-301.
If you ride US-301 through Georgia, you may prefer "The Woodpecker Trail"
which means you turn right from US-301 onto GA-169, south of I-16,
then when GA-121 joins in, stay with GA-121 all the way to Florida.
You go through the part of Georgia that I call The Scrotum (look at the map!)
and enter Florida on FL-121 near Macclenny, the seat of Baker County.
FL-121 takes you through a busy part of Gainesville, a slow ride.
Instead take FL-16 through the prison, and rejoin US-301.
Near Ocala, take CR-326 to I-75 for the last 100 miles to Tampa.
I reckon I do not need to tell you what not to do in Waldo Florida.
PS If you have a tire emergency, I have some worn tires that have
enough rubber to get you home safely. Free to a good home.
