I saw in the news a few months back that a guy in the local area was killed while flying his helicopter like that. He's friends said he was a superb pilot...I think a gust wind made him lose control of it.
Sad

No but I have been invited back in the kitchen before! It is clean! Back when I used to go there once a week I got to talking to the owners. Thialand was going through a civil war and they were showing it on TV. They cried as they saw their people killed on live TV. It was crazy.

I order either Panang or Pad Num Prik Pow. Both are EXCELLENT.

Little help?

Folks,
Myself and a couple mates are looking for forest service roads to ride our GS' on Saturday. Any recommendations?
Coming in from Va Beach and D.C., due to the forecast weather our trip to WV has been changed.

Thanks in advance.

Me too #21 this year!

For anyone interested Black Creek is not having a limit this year on weekday memberships (5 day). Hard to beat $100/yr. Regular membership (7 day) are $150/yr and I think it's limited to 850.

I too have a Tenere. Kinda new to the area (from Hampton Roads), but I did get a chance to meet Mark (NJ) at a local bike shop while getting my S10 inspected. He was a nice fella, shame he is moving back up north.

You can get on Forest Service roads STARTING about an hour (actually more) from Richmond. Look around the Lynchburg Reservoir as that area is all graded gravel. You can also cross Rt 60 and find more to the North.

I own the same. You will love it. Put a streamlight tach light on it for night time home intruders. It's ambitextrous and super bright. Fits the picatinny rail very nice. Steady or strobe capable.

Aren't you zoned A-1 where you live? Why do you need a firing range? Other than not pissing off the neighbors.

Getting lost can be an adventure

But I doubt this pilot is going to enjoy this adventure or what comes after:
