I'm thinking that fully loaded bikes should stay on the tarmac. I do have a forest service road over into Lost City (via woodstock tower rd from my place) but Rt 55 or Rt 33 would be most fun. I've got plenty of maps for folks to look over. You have your GPS too so we should be able to find cool roads or find our way to Boyer Station. Rt55 to Rt28 is my vote at this time though.
There have been a few other reports that I have read of the first 885 and 955 engines had a problem when dropped on their left side. My Sprint has the 955 version and was dropped on the left and hydro locked. It is still running. The Tiger had problems.

Will do. I will probably start a new thread in the next day or two to ask folks that want to ride down to BYOB from the Northern Virginia area.
