I must have checked the box.

I have been getting notices for a couple of years. My wife got a letter in the mail but she does not have an account.

I almost have them memorized also.

There are two tunnels under the parkway. One is at the end of 311 where it intersects on the parkway. The other is at the end of 605 where it intersects the parkway. Both of these roads are on page 29.

And I know what you mean about jumping the water bars in the area.

I head out there about once every 2-3 weeks all year long for a day ride or a camp over/fish etc. The pedlar between 60 and the Lynchberg Reservoir is great trout fishing.. beautiful place :) It's my happy place.
Can you maybe post the road entrance on Google maps for those? Just control click then just hit what's here to get the latitude/longitude. That's all I would need. I just want to be able to find the entrance to those two roads as I have seen pics, but don't know where they are.

Same request as above!

Two sets of tires, Service manual. De-smogged already, but I still need to do the carb work as it is really running lean.

As soon as I get it plated, I'll be visiting the training ground everyone talks about.

The prep for the TAT ride can now officially start. Joe has had his bike for several weeks now, but still hasn't completed the MSF course.

Congrats! Where are the pics?

So maybe right off Patterson and 288? We can head to your spot first? Or the Tuckahoe one?

We can do that. I will have to do 1 though to be safe. I will be busy till 12 most likely. I can probably be ready a little earlier and be there by 12:30-12:45. If you want to PM me your number I can text you to let you know how the times looking if I can be there sooner than 1. And if you wanted to make it a little closer to 288 we could do Lane homes Parking lot, or that Putt Putt right off the interstate.

Sounds good to me too, but I am already committed to hooking up with a bunch of former work associates at the Pinewood for baked spaghetti.

Ya'll have fun.

Three is a lot of illegal riding out there. Please don't be tempted. Plenty of fun legal stuff. I have spoken with a couple of Rangers out there and they are very concerned with the illegal activity and the intentional damage to roads and areas off of the roads. It is really the Jeep folks causing most of the damage, but when they see a "dirt bike" in there they want to have a chat and see if you are plated. Do not forget that you are dealing with Federal Officers and, if caught being naughty, the Federal Courts. These areas are not to be treated like the area behind Martin's, etc. You will see tracks over tank traps, etc. Please do not add to the problem.

Saturday there's two. An out west loop through Monterey, and an Alhambra/Wiggins area ride. Nothing Sunday yet.

I can't go Saturday but up for Sunday if something comes together. Training grounds/ Chester-x if nothing else.
