Madstrom,

That sir is one nice looking motorcycle. I like the change from the Red Baron to the Black Knight.

Thanks for the nice photos. I took one shot of you crossing the ice and I blew it. I'm sorry for the blurry photo.

I love my Jesse bags. Solid as a rock. Great crash bars. Easier to pick up the bike.

Here's a few shots from this weekend.

A little non pavement with a few gates thrown in.



Some pretty scenery








Then after 4 gates a little ICE just to spice things up a little .
Looks like you guys sampled Capito Hill Road. Stuff like that (hidden in grass) was what helped put me down the other day.

We loved hosting you guys. Now I need to get another quart of the blueberry 'shine. Man we put a hurting on that jar, and vice versa.

I'll bring a fresh supply next time I come out.

The ice was just short of Johnstown Road just down the hill a few yards from Moyers Gap Road. All we wound up doing was going cross country from your place back up to Moyers Gap Road.

I think we all agree people get in trouble when they DON'T ride their own ride and try to push it too much.

I'll just add in a couple of hours in the trip planning with you

No problem. My wife does the same thing. Whenever I say something will take me a certain amount of time, she just doubles or triples it....

"Instead of running, let's walk down there and do them all"

Yeah, I'm pretty much the same when it comes to speed in off seasons. Too much uncertainty out there with the road conditions.

But I tell you what, you get Greg on that Ducati Elite, in a peloton on the Moto Giro, and he is bent over and running with the best of them...

If you start the inside view a little sooner you can watch both at the same time.

I have registered and reserved a room with a balcony. If anybody is interested in splitting the cost of the room let me know.

Happy New Year.
