started to make the ride over this morning, but went on a bicycle ride instead. Planning on doing a few of these, but I've been on call the past couple of weekends, so I need to stay close by..

Yeah, safety is always first. Riders concentrate on riding safely.
Riding to catch up is not necessary, because someone will always be waiting at the next turn.
We can't get a full ride in if we have to stop to get someone to the hospital.

Yes, yes, & yes.
It looks like we will be having at least 2 rides this time:

WEATHER PERMITTING

1. Apparently Igajohnnymac will be leading ride #1 either up or down Hurricane Creek, then presumably onto other similar "roads" that he either already knows, or can find on the maps or GPS that he brings with him. Bring your maps & GPS's in case he forgets his.
Bring your knobbies or dual sport tires if you want to go on ride #1.

2. I have to stick to pavement for at least another week, as I am not totally recovered from a neck ailment. I will probably bring a KTM 990 Supermoto R for ride #2.
Street or mostly street tires will be best for ride #2.

3. Any others?

And by all means, come for breakfast even if you don't want to ride.
So far, it looks like bacon & egg biscuits, sausage & egg biscuits, & tenderloin & egg biscuits are probably the best deal ().

See PAGE ONE for timeline.

Rasser Sasser Frasser!

My bad, I was out late in Asheville reliving some 20 something music at the peel. I will be going tomorrow Sunday June 30th, if anyone is interested. 10am wheels turning from the meet location in trust. Will go through H/C top to bottom, then go loop through buzzards roost. Perhaps a ride through the little dragon.
