Agree! I'm just across the VA state line in Galax, and I'd rather have fantastic mountain riding 9 months of the year than flatland all year long!

Have a great time!

Hope everyone there has a great time. :clap

As for me, just got the estimate back on bike repair after last week's accident - $2K (replacing forks and various other bits). :puke1

No, not a spam bot. (I've never been called that before - usually it's much, much worse!)

You'll like the NC700x!

There are some good buys on used NC7's - I picked up a 2012 with less than 7K miles and $2500 worth of accessories (just what I was looking for) for a bargain price of $5300 in November!

Good luck...
