    Well, Bert, before you totally make up your mind about the (so-called) "dull/uninteresting FL roads" without even trying them out, here's what I suggest you do: come down to the "interior lakes area"...

  15. F3 front brake issue - pulling sharply to one side.

    I have about 18,000 km (12,000 mi) on my 2017 F3L. A couple of months back, while winter riding in FL, I did a 'hard' stop one...
