I already knew the answer. Just wanted to hear you say it. What kind of mileage are you getting? I have an idea but am not sure.

Try it out sometime ... It really does help....
Good tip! Pun not intended...but I'll take what I can get!


Cliffy, Those tires look good! I'll be interested in hearing how many miles you get out of them.

A place to live.

Not sure if this is the best place to put this up, but I figured it needed to stay local.

http://harrisonburg.craigslist.org/apa/3800568743.html

And I have a large garage so I might be willing to let someone park their bike inside.

Interesting you should ask that question...

I am indeed heading up that way and was about to make a post to see if anyone from this area was as well. Sooooo....

I will be heading up for a second year of Durty Dabbers Dualsport ride:

http://www.durtydabbers.com/trials/w...Flyer-2013.pdf

This is a really well run event, and my trip last year was a blast.

I am planning to head up early Friday morning the 31st, and will be staying at the Hampton Inn nearby (room has two Queen beds, can split costs with someone to save money?). I will have room for one other person and bike in my trailer, anyone else that is interested in going and is local to the Charlotesville VA area or somewhere along the way to PA shoot me a PM and we can plan it out.

RR, are you local to the area up there?

A few of you cats got to meet this special little lady at BWDR last fall. She had a great time there and still asks how everyone is doing, you too Denis! She graduated this weekend from Longwood University and I just wanted to be the proud papa and show off a bit.
