Anybody from hereabouts interested in heading down to BYOB 2013?

Just curious. My SO likes me to have a riding buddy when I go far from home, and this year it is in Asheville, NC on June 27th to 30th. Just checking.

If I break the 758 miles down into 70 mile increments, it would be doable, so no.

Several, and probably a few chuckles, chortles, snickers, and guffaws as well.
I will follow you any where if you bring that Dalwhinnie stuff.

Let's pencil that in, we can discuss more at Hiawatha.

It's on my calendar. I want to ride to new locations next year, and groove with the groovy by golly gosh.

1/2 assed maybe in. Depends on how next year shapes up.

I'm not much of a rider though.

Perhaps we can find some groovys on the way down.

I have gone down around Chicago a few ways that are not too bad. I found that the roads get better right across the border and down a bit in Indiana.


Once I get close to a route picked, I usually use Google mapping and turn on the earth view to see where the wrinkles and water are, the roads in those areas are usually the best. I then adjust accordingly. I don't want to add hundreds of miles, but if we can see some stuff, that is always nice.

We get any more, this could become another rolling rally.
Who knows, perhaps my brother and OU812 are in too. Grainbelt? Klay? I don't like riding in large groups though, but we can break down into smaller groups and meet up at points. That helps separate the fast and half fast riders.

Not what I meant. No matter though. I think freeflow put it better.

BYOB has been on my list for a while, though I fear it will be too warm for my northern sensibilities in June.

Subscribed.

Grainbelt has a bike? I thought he was just the ADV token drunk.
