I'm game, the planets need to get in line, last couple weekends my better half has been busy so I'm pulling kid watch.

Next weekend looks to be almost ideal. Anything planned?

I've been waiting on weather to ride again, that place gets extremely muddy. Nothing like riding from Yadkinville to King in the cold while being sweaty and muddy.

I'm in the middle of planning a route for this coming Sunday, was thinking about trying to make it out to to the West Jefferson/Warrensville area. My plan is to get over to hwy 88 making a loop around the mountains while looking for interesting diversions.

Any suggestions on rides in and around the area?

Will it be a dualsport ride or only paved roads?

I would prefer off pavement. I'm not familiar enough with the area to plot a specific route. My intent was to go explore the area and see what I could find.

I might set up a group ride with the Hooligans on Saturday to AAA farms, leaving from the McDonald's at Hanes Mall at 9:15AM.

Lets ride together soon.


Great to ride with you again Parker. I had fun and got to show you guys a few new places.
I'm planning on the Brushy Mtn./Ferguson/Champion/Millers Creek/Stone Mtn. loop tomorrow. Probably leaving Lewisville around 10:00 which would mean Union Grove about 10:30.

Ive got a potential buyer for the klr coming at 12:00 and i think sidewinder has the kids this weekend. Thanks for the invite though! That should be a awesome loop!

Yesterday i jetted up to Independence VA. took 58 to Damascus then 133 to shady and back 421 (snake) 58 has a ton of pea gravel and is slicker than owl shit. 133 and 421 are clear except the thawing has created rock slides on 421. The biggest being about cinder block sized. Whitetop area mountains still coverd in snow as well.

225 miles today, 67 to 21 north to the BRP down to 18, up to Sparta then back down to Jefferson. From Jefferson took 16 south to Wilkesboro then 268 on back to Elkin and home.

Here's a pic from the BRP
