I've got to make it to the next one. Looks like a good time was had by all. I see some scooters so at least I will have company...

speeking of the next Poe's run...

It's the first sunday of the month correct?

BTW, went for a ride this afternoon, saw what looked like a fellow ADVer on a Silver Wee with a white DS helmet headed west on 250. It was about 3:30 near zion's cross roads. Anybody on here?

No. It is the second Sunday of every month. Usually runs about 0930 to around noon.

If the weather is nice, get there early before all the cruisers show up. If the weather is cold, it will only be the real riders there! Lots of beautiful old machines to look at too.

You're right, the 2nd Sunday. Anything like that in Hampton Roads? We Richmond folks would love a nice ride down there to meet up sometime.

Don't blame the YZF, cause if I remember right, the KTM also had a 'wheel well skyward' heading down route # 1 that day...

Looks like you all had a great time. I should have ditched metal detecting today as I only found a few spencer bullets but it was fun. You all have a great week. I'm heading to Staten Island, NY via cage

Free to a good home. My EEE PC 700 2g surf model. I've had it for a little over a year and for some reason it's stopped getting power from the cord, so can't be charged. Bought a new cord and it still doesnt work. So I don't know if it's the connection inside or what, and I didn't want to just 'muck around' and make it worse. If you have some computer repair experience it might be worth your while...

BTW I installed WinXP on it, but still have the original Linux disk if you want.
Now that I have the iPhone, it's not needed... Just lemme know and you can come get it. No I'm not spending money to mail it to you...

I can eat any time but I can't ride in the mountains anytime...well... almost . 60 degrees plus ... I can see making a loop to WV. If I can do it in single digits, the 60s will be a piece of cake.

You know, you could always head a little further south.... though I do think I'm a bit slower than you'd like to ride our roads :)
