Thanks everybody.

It was a great time and I had the perfect travel companion.

Eddie, the day we went up was clear, it had rained the day before and rained the two days after we went up.

Rob, I wish.

Mica, damned if I know. Somebody probably had a little heater running up there somewhere, it was pretty chilly.

Cool photo! Cool place!

On another note. I was riding up 33 into VA over the weekend and saw the craziest thing I have ever seen! Three guys going down the mountain on skateboards, yeah skateboards.
Anyone else see this? Anyone former the Burg know or hear of these guys doing this?
Great day to ride though. Stopped at the dam. There were hundreds of yellow swallow tail butterflies. It looks like they were all geekn' out on the sand up there. (minerals)




I need to find some people to ride with. That way this crazy stuff isn't just coming from me.

Nice bike.

Post up here next time you go for a ride. There's usually someone looking for a reason to go riding.

+1 on the bike and ride.

I went out at lunch with my buddy here at work. Pavement turned to gravel and he turned shiney into scraped. Dumped it in turn and boogered up the left side. I guess that's why they don't advertise the Honda 919 as an adventure bike. He's fine, but understandably disgusted.

Hey Dave, we stopped in at your place Monday on our way home from Maine. You weren't home from work yet so we told the girls hi and headed home. I started a ride report, the link is in my sig line.
