Did anybody sleep good last night? I had to make myself stay up until 8:00 .

Glad everyone had a good time and thanks for the great breakfast.

Hope to do it again soon.

Hey Troy, here's a link to the mirrors I have...

I did not see them as a seperate item, but I'm sure they will work with you. They were ~$25 each when I bought the bar guards.

My neck has been killing me lately so I don't want to use the helmet mount with the extra weight & wind drag going right to my neck.

I'm uploading a video as I write this but, it takes around 2 hours for videos to upload on youtube. I don't know how to post a video directly from my computer to ADVrider but, I will post the link ASAP.

I hate that I didnt finish the weekend riding with everyone. It looks like we missed several great sites. What road was the house picture taken on?

We are going to head up to LBL again in a couple of weeks when the weather is a little better.

Again It was great getting to meet everyone.

Haven't had much chance to get online, trying to recover from missing work Friday still. I was literally doing work in between loading the bike on Thursday night/Friday morning, and shut the computer down less than 10 minutes before Troy rolled into the driveway to take off.


I had a great weekend, glad that everyone else did. Got to ride some incredible areas, hang out with some awesome folks. Thanks to everyone that attended, shared items, cooked, etc, etc, etc. Made for a very memorable weekend, can't wait to get out and do it again!

Sorry for heading out so early yesterday, had dinner plans that kinked up the weekend a little bit, next time I won't let that happen. Wallachian Spikes, I hope you didn't have to sit around by yourself for very long!

I pulled the bike into the garage, unrolled one pannier and grabbed my toothbrush, and the bike is still loaded up otherwise. Tonight I get to unpack and wash it, tomorrow I get to fix all of the stuff that is wrong with it now! hahaha (brake light switches are both acting up, something is squeaking at 35mph, and my right turn signals stopped flashing about halfway home... I think that the bulb housing corroded due to all of the water).

Thanks everyone!

Pulled the gear off the bike & left it on the floor of the garage.

Great time, great folks, great place to ride. Can't wait to do it again.
Cool, glad you made it down that way, it is a great road, and I too think it's even better than 232.

sandalscout- "Wallachian Spikes, I hope you didn't have to sit around by yourself for very long!"

No problem. I had just enough time to pack up the camp site & read two articles in the new Dirt Bike magazine before my wife showed up. I was the last ADVrider out of "B" loop & the place looked great. I'm sure the staff will be glad to have us back again.

My first video of the event: http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=KIfT8...=youtube_gdata

I've still got video of Loretta Lynn's Spring trail ride to upload but, I should finish that soon & focus on this weekends ride next. Sucks that my wind screen blocks so much of the trail, next time I'll take off the glass piece or find a better place to mount the Gopro.

Excellent. Chris did a great job of cleaning up the ashes from the fire, couldn't even tell we moved the pit up there! Betty (at the office) seemed to be genuinely glad we came out.... Gotta be the most respectable bunch of drinking bikers ever!

Wish y'all could have hung around for the rest of the weekend. The weather definitely did a 180 from the way it looked when you headed out. The church in Mike's pics is at the end of 415 off 122. The house and barn are toward the end of 135 past the intersection of 136. Let us know when your back up this way, there's always some of us looking to ride.Till next time,

I can't believe this, but I only took 3 pictures and 2 videos all weekend!

If the segway video looks okay (took it on my phone, copying now), I'll get it online here in a bit.

Crud, not sure why the embed is only showing sometimes.... I've linked them, let me know if they still don't work.


Here's the merged tracks from my GPS from Friday to Sunday:
