Sorry to hear it. There is plenty of worthwhile pavement in the area. You're sure to enjoy the trip, even if it's on a road bike.

A few miles from work RPM goes up and speed goes down. I managed to get to a safe spot on the shoulder under a light but though she would shift fine she would not move under throttle and in gear. Also temperature shot up to a RCH under the red. I think I fried my almost brand new clutch. Probably have 2000 miles on the new plates. Got her hauled home. Back-up plan is to take a street bike.

No sweat, there are a few others for a paved ride.

Bikes packed, getting ready to head off to work. Will be leaving after work today and heading west (staying in Bedford). Then we'll have all day friday to wander the mountains before arriving friday evening. Looking forward to hitting Backmountain Road near Cass.

Rode the Beemer to work today. I'll be riding the KLR commuter bike to Romney. I'll be on the green 1st gen loaded down like a rented mule.

Looking good. There will be a bigger contingent of Stroms this year. We have another one on the road today from Ontario, Canada, and some others from Trooper heading our way.

Talked to Larry (general manager) at Romney this evening. They have setup the showers, made dinner plans for Saturday and will have a coffee and electrical charging station setup by tomorrow. He seemed pretty excited to have everyone show-up.

Ride safe everyone. See you this weekend.

Talked to Larry, a very friendly accommodating GM, told him that this can go National . I would like to swing by tomorrow morning and meet the riders if I can get there before take off, or maybe join a short on road ride (though I going off road) . Still deciding if I would camp in Romney or CV....

Hats off to Dirt_Dad for spearheading this.
A safe and enjoyable ride to all.

Crap - literally

It's 8:30 and I just finished helping my son dealing with a sewage flooded basement in his apartment. Other people's toilet sewage. I guess we've all been there, but . . .


Despite two scouting trips and looking forward to starting out with a group first thing, it's not going to happen. Discretion being the better part of old age, I'm beat and not going to contend with deer so that I can set up a tent at midnight.

I ought to arrive around 9-10 am and hope to have lunch with whoever is hanging around.
