I noticed that Sebring International Raceway was hosting a track day Saturday and mentioned it to Lostboater.

He suggested we meet at the Jacaranda, spending three nights, so we could ride the area.

I rode down on my Xmax, now called the Big Ugly. It’s very poor wind protection was evident on the way down. I will be putting the big Puig back on it when I get home.

Track day was a disappointment as the guard wouldn’t let us in. We watched for an hour from outside, then rode to Zolfo Springs for Mexican lunch, followed by a ride to Frostproof for ice cream.

Happy hour and rib dinner on the balcony at the hotel.

This morning I found Ken’s scooter out when I went down. I went west looking for photos in the early sun.

The Big Ugly. Fine scooter, but styling and wind protection were not considered in the design.

Eating good on the scooter trail. Two of the riders in my group have the Yamaha Xmax.
Big wheels - keeps up real well at highway speeds. I think they are hard to get. Sean in our
group had to order his and wait 5 months.
