KV, we'll have another rally, at some other time, at Ironhorse. For now Rebel Yell will remain at TWO.

If you're into 28, Cherohala, etc., we can run the Linzi Loop, which incorporates all of those.

So, you in, or are you out? Same question to you, Barry... I think the majority of the riding during Rebel Yell II will be offroad.

I'll try to make the Rebel Yell... I was thinking about heading up to West Virginia that weekend though.

Squidliest locations in the Southeast? Every swinging dick who owns a sport bike in GA, FL and SC runs 60, 180 and 129 in N GA. You have to make an effort to get to and run the Dragon. That being said, it's not my thing either. I just know a lot of people wish it were in their backyard.

Yes, but every swinging dick in the lower 48 who owns a sportbike heads to the Dragon and surrounding area.

BTW, KV, I am adding you to the list in the official Rebel Yell II thread, 'cause I know you'd rather hit TWO with some cool people than go to WV. Uh, yeah... :):

Don't worry, Barry... DirtDOG will take you on some shit.

As for riding, RAW asked me if there was going to be a lighter dual sport ride for those who don't want to follow DirtDOG into the woods (and I don't blame them). Any volunteers to lead that? I was thinking that group could do the easy fire roads and stuff, as they're plentiful in the area.

Me 'n' Mutley will be heading up a street ride (probably 300 miles, or so), unless I can find a small dual sport to ride, because, as I said earlier, he's done with the dirt.

Now I understand the BlownCJ moniker.
Say hello to your dad.

Linzi, Raw and others, I will be taking it easy and would be glad to lead a light dual sport ride as I may have Evicta on the back. The bush whackers can have at it on a seperate ride and let their rooster feathers fluff with abandon. I still have the TransAlp ride directions and I think there may even be a ride sheet at TWO.
