NOVA to Seneca Rocks Festival of Fives ?

Anybody from NOVA headed to the Seneca Rocks Festival of Fives this weekend? I'm contemplating an early (~5AM) start Saturday AM if anybody is headed that way.

You should see brother Jerry (he is the rally bastard) and pfestus1 there for sure. Saturday many will be at Blue Grass for the big hoe down to support the library. I might ride out there, wave and drink one of Jerry's beers - maybe on the F650, just to really piss them off

PS - be careful and don't bend over, they are a tough bunch and the really like sheep 'cause they can't talk

Yep those two'll be there for sure - usually where the one is, the other's not far behind...(Pfestus on the far left, Jerry on the far right)
keep an eye out for Pfestus and his rig
somewhere between Seneca Rocks and BlueGrass, Va - Sorry I won't be able to join you all.

The /6 strikes again! I suppose I should be glad that it crapped out in my driveway rather than halfway to Seneca Rocks.

I gotta get a new(er) bike.

I have to make sure the new-ish job is gonna be around for the next year before I go spending money on (another) toy. I am keeping an eye on the mid-90s ZX-11s passing through EBay, and would suspect that sooner or later one of them will end up in my garage. Cheap bastard that I am, though, I'll most likely buy at the bottom of the market / Nov-Dec timeframe.
