Mopeds in Florida?

Anybody down in Florida with mopeds? I seem to be the only one within a 75 mile radius of my house.

Good for you,Tommy! Make sure you're taking the smaller ,slower roads. I'll bet there's a bunch of Mopeders down there close.

Re: Mopeds in Florida?

Iam in south florida. Mopeds are few and far between around me also. I only know of two other people and they're somewhat far from me (next county over).

Re: Mopeds in Florida?

Re: Mopeds in Florida?

Fort pierce, checking in.

Re: Mopeds in Florida?

Im getting ready to move to st petersburg . hoping to meet up with some riders there

Re: Mopeds in Florida?

Yeah, moped scene here is pretty lonely, I’m in Orlando. I ride to work some days, or ride with some vintage Vespa dudes, but that’s about it. I’ve meta couple of people that had mopeds, but not so much anymore. Dirty Petcocks in Sarasota are a good group, they ride on tuesdays if you are ever down that way.

I'm in the Masotta Key area. Still too far from the rest of you. Dirty Petcocks are an hour north but I never made it this season.

Re: Mopeds in Florida?

Maybe , could it be , why there are so few mopeds riders there ? LOL

Re: Mopeds in Florida?

I live in Saint Petersburg and run a bike shop out of my house, I've got tools, parts and peds on deck. Beach rides are the best. Folks are always welcome, hit me up when you're in town. Braaaap!

Re: Mopeds in Florida?

Is there anywhere SAFE to ride around Orlando? I know that north up there is a nice quaint bunch of streets with a lot of shops and no on e is allowed to drive fast. Don't remember what that are is called.

Re: Mopeds in Florida?

East Orlando not a good place (Curry ford/Goldenrod/East colonial) too much traffic and impatient drivers. N.441/Lee rd/Apopka/Winter Garden/Ocoee/Zellwood have great long back roads. Was going to go for a ride today towards Windamere but my variator nut came loose and disappeared 5 min after take off.(edited)

Re: Mopeds in Florida?

We have a secret truck moving your stuff back to Charlotte. For every load you take down one comes back.

Re: Mopeds in Florida?

im up here in jacksonville, our scene faded out. fl in general bad place for 2 wheeled devices, especially the big metro areas. wish brent was still around for his yearly ride in inverness.

Re: Mopeds in Florida?

The only people I’ve ridden with in Orlando are vintage Vespa dudes, but their scene has dwindled as well. I ride to work sometimes, but the weather right now is prohibitive.
