That's too bad you have to work over the weekend. I was going to see if you wanted to got to the Tour de Tellico now that your KLR has gotten a taste for the dirt.

.. that would have been awesome .. (cough cough) .. man I'd love to go (shiffle) .. heh heh ..

.. yeah .. sadly I work the next four weekends and will miss the Tour and East Meet too .. but that won't last forever and I am already scanning the upcoming events to see what may hit in my favor .. I will be looking at some of the fall rides too and may burn some vac time ..

.. btw .. I scored a set of those ATV bags with a matching handlebar bag for about $13.00 on ebay .. thanks for the tip on those Joe ..

Stone Mtn , break 12:30

Martinsville VA Break (gas?) 4:00
Hillsborough 5:30

http://tinyurl.com/nc-foothills-tour-II

This is similar to an earlier ride but doing some roads that I missed and added one section.

The roads will be a wide range of straight 4 lanes to get there to smooth sweeping secondary roads to tighter rougher twisting roads to even a bit of narrow country lanes. Perhaps a few miles of gravel depending upon the feelings of those going along.

Give a shout if you are interested.

I am not expecting this to be a large group, only maybe 3-6

NCStephen, I might meet you for some of the Wilkes section. I'll have to see if I can get away. I'll probably meet you where you get off 421. Will you be getting gas there?
