Yardstick is so you can get an equal reading. I will post up the link when I get to a real computer. This only works with a twin.

In other news I did it! I bought a 2012 adv wee!! I just need to go pick it up sometime...

I'm trying to post this video my buddy shared of the "fiddie races" down at the Deals Gap store last month. Looks like a hoot and I'd love to try something like this. Here's a link, and I hope the video shows.

Afternoon gentleman and ladies,

Im in need of some help. Im looking to plan a riding/winery adventure in your area and am looking for some recommendations. Id like to find a winery with lodging or at least somewhere to stay within walking distance. Good riding around the area would be awesome but unfortunately no dirt as shes on a Honda Rebel.

Any advice for a Virginia Beach couple?

That ADV Wee looks sweet! Congrats, I think you've got a jewel.
I believe it would greatly benefit from a bash plate, though.

As for the sych'ing tool, the goal is to make them even. Since there's no need to measure any values, there's no need for a stick with markings.

There's tons of wineries between Va. Beach and here, although most are East of the Blue Ridge. We have Cross Keys and Bluestone in the immediate area. You probably already have the printed winery map, but if not, you can get some locations and info here. I really don't know about lodging; it all depends on your budget and propensities. Anything from camping to motels to bed and breakfasts are options. I'm unaware of wineries with lodging onsite. A wine tour sounds like an awesome idea especially for a couple. Enjoy!

I've seen that bike before.

Congratulations on the new ride!

One thing is for sure. I will be taking the long way to work tomorrow and heading to summit point after dinner. Should be a good 180 mile day.. need to find some gravel. Hehehe.

Dad and I installed rear spools for a rear stand and also the zuki hand guards. Should work well for these 30 degree mornings. I will do the barkbusters eventually.
