Thanks Kevin. I heard somebody stopped by, but the message I got was pretty vague. "Some guy with a gray beard stopped by on his motorcycle. Steve somebody? I don't know. He had a passenger with him." Right. I did think of you and Rhonda coming home from your ride, but the description didn't fit at all.

Sorry I missed you. I'd love to hear about your trip and chat. Come see me by the fire sometime.

Oh, and congrats on the 3,000 posts . . .

Hey all. A little off topic, but considering the group, a good place to ask. I bet somebody here knows someone who knows someone who knows a little something about "distilling" clear liquids. I have only had limited success and need to talk to someone with experience. shoot me a pm with a phone number. Thanks.

Not fun! Sorry about your bud. Good that no damage was done to the human side of the man - machine system. Perhaps he will consider making an investment in something more dirt-worthy. A KLR?

Maybe we should combine our efforts. It might be like those two guys walking around and one has chocolate ond the other has peanut butter.

Yes, some time ago I saw a few guys on skateboards on 33W headed towards Brandywine. They had on full leathers and helmets. I was going up the mountain so didn't get to watch much but they were really moving. Last I looked, skateboards didn't have brakes !!!! I thought maybe the car in front and behind were running with them.

Is this legal?? Maybe if they go faster than cars??? More nerve than I have!!!!

Yep same thing I saw all in full leather and full face helmets. There were two cars with them (folowing). I guess so Noone ran up on them but they seamed to be going as fast as any car goes down that side.
Yeah the next time I can get for a fun ride not just Staunton to Harrisonburg (work). I'll post up to see if anyone is free.

Does anyone know a dude in the Burg that rides a red wee strom with teeth? He has gone by my work a few times. (R. S. Mongers) it's just that my strom is the only one I have seen on that street. It's kinda out of the way.
It's always great to see other adventure riders.
What's it take to be a cat herder anyways? Do you have like cats?
Why cats?
