Hampton Roads Chatter
 
Well guys it seems as though this tag stuff has sparked quit a bit of interest, THANKS UPST8. I've had a blast doing research for the current tags as well as looking at stuff to do for the next one.

I'd like to banter back and forth on that thread but it makes it harder to follow. The Richmond gang has a "Chatter" thread and now we do as well!!

I didn't search to see if we already had one??!! I'm on my third or so cold one so don't hold it against me:freaky :freaky :1drink

I'll be back to work on the 30th so all my fun will come to an end, 12-14 hour days on the ship (CVN 65) doesn't allow much for much fun stuff. I just rolled back to sea duty from a GREAT shore job at Norfolk Naval Shipyard (I was able to put 19K on the Wee in 12 months) and I'm still in shock:eek1 :eek1

So let's see where this goes.............

Welcome, what do you ride?

Hi roger,

I'm riding a Ducati Sport Classic. That being said, my 'tagging' will be limited to paved roads only. :lol3

Welcome Dana, Hang out here long enough and we'll help you get some proper rubber on that thing, a bashplate and some handguard and a set of panniers. Ready for action!

There are no goat trails here, so even the dirt is doable on just about any bike.

Thanks for the welcome guys.

I have a tank bag. That's a start right? :evil

Great Idea for a thread Roger! Glad everyone is having fun with the Tag game. I can see it going on for along time and getting more and more "interesting" :thumb Welcome Dana and anyone else just tuning in. This is a great community filled with some outstanding men and a couple chicks :lol3 . Hope to see a good turn out for the New Year's Day Ride started by TWKLR.

:ear Now who is going for that tag tomorrow??? :ear I'll be out around those parts for a short ride / lunch with my wife. Asked her what she wanted to do with her day off. She said "Let's go for a ride" :nod I married the right girl for sure!! :ricky

Turnpike Road near Natural Bridge, VA. N37 49.319 W79 37.837

Mapsource shows it as paved, we were on a Concours Owners Group (COG) Ride, road turned to dirt then got into the mountains, nice on a Strom but we had a few C14's, c10's, FJR's, etc. They were troopers and all did the ride. Never know what to expect on a COG ride:eek1 :eek1

This was our annual Brrrrrrrr Ride:

One of these days I need to learn that Tiny URL stuff:lol3 :deal :deal

Thanks for the info Roger.

:deal For tiny, smooth looky linky thingy......

Make a word like this.....LINK.

Copy your URL, Highlight the word you want for a hyperlink, then insert hyperlink. Your word will unerline and become the hyperlink.

Does that make sense???

make it easy :freaky

roger123 12-26-2008 11:08 AM

OK, it looks like I have this link thing figured out, thanks.

Now what's the best way to post up ride routes? I posted my Franklin ride here; Franklin Ride file number 105494, but you need a way to read GPX files. I know all serious motorcyclists can do this but some may still be in the stone age!!!

No Tommy, NOT talking about you. :lol3
