EagleRiders in Orlando Made Our Day!
Today was suppose to be a rainy day in Orlando, so pre-planning for inside task had already been scheduled. As most Floridians know, the weather reports are not always 100% accurate, it turns out, today was one of the most beautiful days in Orlando and a perfect day to ride a Harley.
Tony reserved a Harley Softail Custom from EagleRiders in Orlando. We arrived this morning, the staff had the bike ready, check in and a brief orientation of the bike had us on the road in not time.
Today was an amazing experience. We began our day taking the beautiful back roads that we would not normally travel in a car. We made our way through Clermont to Tavares and into Howie-in-the-Hills. The winding roads were lined with beautiful old oak trees that waved Spanish moss in the wind like hair blowing in slow motion. Small country homes nestled on acres of land with horses roaming the fields, baby goats and occasionally someone mowing their lawn with a riding mower.
One of our favorite roads to travel was Hwy 455 in Montverde, FL. The roads presented themselves like the ones we have traveled in the mountains, beautiful winding roads, majestic countryside with beautiful wildflowers lining the roadside.
We ventured to Mount Dora, where we stopped to enjoy a quick lunch and continued our journey back though the town of Winter Garden. Even though the sun was setting in the west, we were not read to park the bike for the night. We continued riding into the night, after we stopped to bundle up in the jackets we were able to rent from EagleRiders for $15. So glad we did because it was unusually cool tonight so the jackets made the ride more pleasurable.
We've made our way home and are ready to plan another day trip with EagleRiders.
