You got it!

The schedule will probably be: Arrive on Friday night, camp somewhere, ride Saturday, camp somewhere, ride a little Sunday, head back.

AFAIK.

I just hope my favorite camping spot will be open... and I hope that it rains some so I won't break a leg off the rope swing.

Gabby- Passed ya on the WV side of 50 after dad and I crossed the new bridge. Where did your travels take you today?

Dad and I went to Athens Cycle Center. Dad thinks he wants a Hardly-Ridable to add to his garage. I think he's nuts. I can make a "bike" to the same specs with scrap metal, hammer and lathe. Every Christmas after he gets one I'll buy him a pirate costume from the Halloween clearance rack. Anyhow... we then we rode down to the Wild Horse Cafe in Pomeroy and had dinner and then back to the 'berg. It was a nice ride, 230mi, too much black-top for me though.

My travels consisted of DuPont and St Joe to see my grandad. Nothing too exciting I'm afraid. At least I'm not looking at a Hardly-Ableson..

Yeah, I couldn't believe we were looking at Harleys. I was kinda duped into it. I thought we were goin to look at KTMs! We were in the shop lookin at the Harleys and some douche bag comes in and yells "Who's on the BMW's, you're parked in our way!" There was plenty of room to turn around for *most* riders, but they couldn't seem to maneuver their pigs around. Had I not been with my overly kindly father, I'd have appologized and told them I forgot Harley riders couldn't ride well enough to get around another motorcycle in a parking lot. I have little use for a Harley and even less use for the majority of people that ride them. If you want to see a tough rider, he's the one with mud on his tires, smile on his face and more miles on his bike than your car. Odds are he'll be an ADV rider

I did get to look at the KTM's a little, but if I you combined Herewego, Gabby and WVHillbilly's garages you'd have a bigger shop full of orange bikes I guess AOMC has spoiled me! So much orange in that place I need sunglasses! I'm glad it's offset with a little 'berg blue and some red white and green.

bholmes What time were you at Athens Sport Cycles? I was in there around 1PM on lunch, unsuccessfully searching for DRZ400 parts. Next time you head that way, let me know so we can do lunch or something.

You weren't the only BMW there today

Just wait until I build my Harley. You'll like it... You might forget that I'm going to build one though by the time I get to it. Let's see garage, house, RD, and... hopefully a GS. (Haven't ridden a KTM Adventure yet though)

Haha by the time you build your harley ill be senile enough to like it at the rate I'm. Goin :lol I like the adventures alot. Ride one if you get the chance. Far better suspended off road than the GS but i like the GSs better on road. The 1200GS are worlds better than my 1100 too btw.
