Ok, Eap lives in Gaithersburg. Citiclip in D.c., and Story is in Mclean?

Why did we meet in Frederick, damm. We should have met like in Germantown or Gaithersburg. Or point of rocks ... next time lol

Not enough maryland riding on this forum, we got to do some riding on the eastern shore, it seems like it might be warmer there

My father lives on Virginia's eastern shore. It is seriously flat over there, and for the most part the roads are straight. An hour in WV will get you better riding than a day on the eastern shore!

I don't mind riding on flat, straight roads. I have been to the eastern shore many times, its not bad. Other than the roads being generally straighter, there is great scenery and alot of fun to be had.

I think you'd be happy riding around the surface of a tennis ball, if you could do it.

The Eastern shore is OK and the oysters and crabs are about the best! But be careful because a JABBA lurks there!...

I more prefer the forests in the Md panhandle - there’s some nice opportunities and you can pop back and forth to West By God and to Pencilvanya too. We gotta meet out at Bill's place

in Little Orleans, MD for a hamburger or fish sandwich and cut through Greenbriar State Forest over to Old Town, MD. and beyond….

You mean cut through green briar forest as in on the gravel atv paths??

You know, when I was riding my r1 through that stuff I didnt have problems, but on the triple the exhaust is lower and scrapes stuff.

Just the other day I was riding around, when I had to go through this little foot path, and I got stuck on a rock, I had to rock it back and forth so I could get it out. Sucks :(

I need to get another bike if Im going to ride with you nutters.


hmmm, r1 or zx10r??

There are those atv or ORV paths but your triple should do fine on the regular forest roads...

Go west young men- go west! I usually do! There's little to be seen here- except a shitload of geese and enough hunter orange to choke a billygoat. Nice flat water on the bay today tho- wish I had my kayak!
