Friday, Sat, Sun ride

Short notice ...... sorry.
Todd and I are heading down towards Asheville tomorrow to hook up with a friend or two riding up from Atlanta. We usually stay in Little Switzerland and ride that area. If anyone is interested in joining us let me know. We can still add at least one to the group to fill a hotel room.

The weather is going to be awesome.!!!!

Maybe we can make a trade, socket for chain rivet tool? (got a new ZVM on the way)
Thanks guys I will try to catch up with Dan this weekend and return his chain tool and borrow his socket. Jeff, I very much appreciate the offer, but I am not sure when the part will arrive. I thought the huge socket was going to be hard to summon up. You guys are unbelievable.

Nope, the BMW is at Morton's on consignment and my KLR sprung a oil leak. It took Ron Ayers almost 2 weeks to get me gaskets. I'm also in the middle of re-wiring my old Guzzi so that isn't running either. Hopefully I'll have the KLR running by the end of the weekend.

I had big plans to pick up the Nutzy (USA T-O-R) in Cumberland Md today, and then continue down to Canaan to Joe's weekender there, and stick the Nut to Rella's fridge tomorrow, but work once again ruined that, then figured I could do an early morning assault from Ohio and get it by 10 a.m., and still hit Rella's, but alas an inmate from Front Royal ran up this morn and grabbed it....
Might wanna keep an eye out for him... you could still drag him over to Rella's... I'll shoot a note to HBN, and keep him updated.

ride safe, tell momma me and Dona said hi.

I went this afternoon. CBT lites are too narrow for me I found out. They have plenty of gloves suits and boots to try on, but if you buy anything, they ship it from Duluth free instead of using the limited on hand stock.

Great riding destination tomorrow: WV Roadkill Cook-off in Marlinton

Just noticed this today. Sorry for the late posting.

Saturday, 28 Sept 2013, Marlinton, WV

Autumn Harvest Festival and WV Roadkill Cook-off

Mountain crafts, heritage music, lumberjacks, cloggers, Possum Trot 5K run, country fair, ducky race, etc.

And as see on Food Network, the Travel Channel, and Discovery Channel, the WV Roadkill Cook-off starts at 0900, with judging at noon. Last year's winner was the porcupine stew cooked by the Flintstones.........

Here is the link for the festival

Hope someone from Richmond can make it.

So a friend of mine wants to get fitted and wants to ride down. He bribed me into coming along with Maryland crabcakes. So I'll be riding down tomorrow night, after 8pm.

We should get in right around midnight.

I'm guessing there ain't no campgrounds round them there parts is there? How about a cheap fleabag motel off the interstate?
