Sounds good..

that gives me an excuse to ride some back ways to camp (yes, camp is in Amherst County).

Let the record show that I'm very jealous of all these day trips while I go drone away at my corporate sales job.

Remove the mirrors. If we left around 0500 that would give us day of riding.

I'm in sales also... lucky me that one of my customers in Blacksburg is a BMW rider, so I have to ride to his place.
The rest of the time I just as screw it...in riding not working today.
Oh yeah, and I can't forget my favorite customer"Dirtdoctor"...inmate in Richmond that I try to make it to the Friday RTEs with.

Yes, clearly

When I was in sales and needed a day off, I just "went on a sales call" those "calls" typically lasted all day.

Now, I'm the boss and this desk is like a freaking anchor. having an assistant is worse than having a wife!!! My assistant keeps better tabs on me than my wife. Even worse than that, they get on the phone together and chat away. Needless to say, I can't get away with anything

I'd much prefer outside sales, but I'm inside for now.

yeah, I'm talking about some sort of training program. I've had two people recommend them, though out of country riders, Canadia and England. guess they have them there. I've seen those things I think you're talking about - those demo/competition rides? yeah, pretty crazy control with those big bikes. cool to know they have the competition/demos at least. too bad no training.

There may only be one held a year that covers Hampton Roads. But yes, the courses are pretty neat.
