No, there are no legal ones but with a little research into abandoned developements....Ta da!
Our new secret track! (we lost the old when they started building again).
So we can have warm weather, near nakkid babes and curves too......
I'll let you know how the new track works next week, the inaugural run is this Sunday.Our Secret Track

I had to work all weekend but my friends went and chopped at the jungle to clear the track and the line of sights on Saturday.
On Sunday they rode there and found a dozen bikers already doing laps.
Seems that "the secret track" is the worst kept secret in So Fla!
It's all second gear stuff and a friend on his R1 told me that he has no chicken strips left on his *front* tire.Not Secret Track

That place works out perfect for an "unofficial" track!
0.6 miles around, average lap 50 seconds or 40-43mph.
What you'd call a magic roundabout without cages and diesel spills. Very narrow, the runoff is inside deep bushes, that works very well. Three guys lost it so far with no injuries and very little scratches to their bikes.

Everyone did some 30 or 40 laps and melted both their tires all the way the shoulders. I kept easy and stayed under 5500 rpms all the way around. Funny thing is I didn't feel that I was leaning much but my front tire showed me otherwise. May be do that road is crowned in the middle so when you exit a turn you're leaning against a slight negative camber -another reason you can't power more without running off like many found out.

I didn't break a sweat and had a lovely time, it could hardly be a safer place for a little illegal fun but we may add a chicane on the main straight.
The temperature dropped last night to chilly 72 is sweet.
