Thanks for a great last ride. 40 miles of speed and sand. Will keep in touch and post up when I'm in the area.

Thanks Hatch, enjoy those mountains.

Sorry I missed all the fun.

Godspeed Bruce.

KTM still down waiting on reworked head and cylinder.

Just got back from three days in North GA and NC. Awesome except for the fukking freezing RAIN which pissed on our parade Thru Fri and Sat.

I am out next weekend also.

You dont quit riding when you get old, you get old when you quit riding.
I don't always ride street bikes, but when I do I prefer VStroms

No worries Vic. I'll be back in Sept for training. I'm sure we'll meet up then. Hope the bike is running again soon. Your missing some good dirt days.

Hey Vic, if you can ride one day this week, let me know. We could do some splor'n on the 650's or if you wanna go with smaller bikes, you're welcome to ride the 500, 350 or 300, take your pick, I'll ride whatever, I like em all. The 350 is running really well now since Gimmee tweaked it a bit. Rode it yesterday with RH, Moab, Skid, Gimmee and Waysheer. Did have some trouble keep'n up a couple times but it was no fault of the bike. Those f---ers are way too fast for this old man.

What say you?

Let me see how the week goes. I might take you up on the offer.

Thanks

We just came back for riding to, in and from North Caroline for the past 4 days. Ran across a few other Pcola riders too... small world! It was nice meeting you, Curt Timm...you will forever be spoiled from riding in the mountains now!

Where did you all ride? Street? Dual sport??

Barney, Papa Wheelie and I had a great trip to the N Ga and NC. Rode mostly pavement but had some great Forest Roads and covered a lot of territory.

Yea we got caught Thru and Friday in the RAIN and it was COLD up there.

Still - its a great area to ride and the motorcycles were already out in droves...
never saw anyone we knew.

Our cabin was near Clayton.

Im headed out this Friday to Arkansas for a couple of weeks with the wife and bring the DR so Im going to explore out there.

Here we are at cabin


Starting on Forest Road in NC


We did a lot of this

Talking

Honey doos, flood and moving "college boy" back to 32514. Sometimes life gets in the way of riding. But did all that to be clear this weekend.

Track Day...Sat 5/24 Ed Bargy School JGP
Sun 5/25 Backward (reverse, clockwise) track day JGP
Mon 5/26 Reg track day JGP

I can prolly ride any of the three days, just not sure if I can do a track day at this time. Track bike has a clunk, rattle, grind noise in front end that I'm unable to locate as yet.

Yeah Kev, where the hell were you Sat???
