Virginia National Forest Maps

In case y'all Cat Herders aren't aware of these, here are links to Virginia - George Washington and Jefferson NF Maps. Some great rides up your way!

Great resource - 56 maps that not only show the Motor Vehicle Maps in the National Forests, but also show thousands of secondary paved and dirt roads that are near to or pass through the National Forests (and incredible scenery).

Link to PDF with all maps:

It's true - I downloaded those about four years ago. Only thing is, they're kinda hard to read and lack some of the info that the national geographic maps have.

But they're worth every penny!

Push an old pin out and see how it is worn. This is after 30k miles.

Yeah. On this bike at least. Haha.
The pins looked fine when I pushed out the one to break the chain. And yeah, its got that white "fresh chain" lube on it. Haha.

I thought the one you got excited about (with the creamy white lube) was the new one.

But no stretch and the pins didn't appear worn? All it really needed then was that link with the broken rubber ring extracted and replaced by a master link.

You'd think with all those miles you're racking up that you'd be learning to ride more aggresively by now. But don't push it too much lest you end up in a ditch somewhere.

On my XRL, the chain was toast after about 5k miles. Broke-apart toast.
