Good times.

Cool guys. Good conversation. The stories about riding the TN portion of the TAT have me wanting to plan a similar trip.

I am out of town for a while, but might be able to make a Tuesday March 31st GTG.

Grass Roots BMW

Just for what its worth, me and a friend are gonna ride up to Grass Roots BMW in Cape on Saturday to go to their open house and demo ride. If anyone wants to tag along we are gonna meet in Arlington around 6 am on sat morning and head up there. Take the long way and get there around 10ish. Do some riding eating and hopefully score some door prizes. Leave there around 2ish and be home by 6ish. I will post later this week and ya'll know when and where we are meeting.

Also for what it is worth we will be on thumpers so we will have to stop for gas at least once before we get there. So if you are wanting to go but in a hurry you might not want to ride with us. But we will definitely have a good time.

I wish I could go. Work is kicking my butt right now.

I am going to be heading to Barber for the superbike races (1st week of May) in my truck in anyone wants me to drag a cooler or gear down there.

Have fun in Cape.

SQTT,

Sorry to hear that you can't make it. Me and Justin will eat a few extra BBQ Sandwiches for you. Good luck with work!

Heh... I'm looking for somewhere to ride today, and I remembered your plans.

6am? F that. You guys are nuts. Hope you had a good time. I'm gonna have to go someplace else. It's re-enactment weekend at Fort Pillow, maybe I'll head up there.

Jamie

Well we made it up there and back but it was an interesting day. I got to the meeting point at 6am and no one was there. However I had 2 voicemails from the 2 people I had confirmed going. One said his bike was puking coolant and would be late the other was 5 miles west of me broke down. So I gassed up and headed to meet Justin and try and help him fix his bike. I got there and he already had the bike in pieces in the parking lot. Long story short we got it back together and running but it was making some strange internal sounds that bikes are not supposed to make. So he was a no go. At this point the other rider had his coolant leak fixed and we headed to Cape. We didn't leave till 9:30 so it was almost 1pm when we got there. I think we got the last of the pork chops and a few potato chips. They had a good turn out. I looked around for some fellow inmates and did get to meet GuzziFreak750.

The food was good and we had a good ride. It did rain on us for about half the ride home, but all was worth the trip.

I would love to but I just had hurnea surgery this week. I don't think I will be riding for a few weeks.
If you end up going post some pics so I can enjoy it since the only view I am getting this week is from my recliner.

Maybe we could do a Pickwick camp-out and ride at Pickwick in a month or so? I am game anyway.
I am with XR650RKING, we need to do another dinner ride.

End of May 10th week or May 17th week!

Does someone want to get another one together?

I'd be game the end of the May 10th week, or anytime the week of may 17th?
