I asked.....

I asked the weather guessers out in Wakefield if we could tour their place as part of our New Year's Day ride. I doubt they'll have us on a holiday, but, hey, asking is free. I'll let you all know what they say!

On that note, UpST8, it is time for you to find that rose and get on the ball planning our New Year's Day ride. Quit shirking that RESPONSIBILITY!

Yup, agreed. Cold is OK, icy we stay home. Are you guessing that'll it be icy?

I am hoping for dry conditions, but I do love the mountains ya know? Altitude would mean the chance for icy conditions to be greater and the mountains also means for a 400-500 mile day......so, I will try and find some good eats with a decent flatlander ride there and back. Total miles between 250-300?

Meet up point will most likely be the Daily Grind in Town Center just like last year. Sound like a plan thus far?

par tay

Do we want to do another night at my house some time this winter? I'll find some new movie, make chili and wings and I also promise to drink way too much.

I'm thinking some weekend in Feb.

In the cold, 250-300 miles is about right. But in these parts, who knows what the weather is gonna do.

Definitely in for the Sandblast Rally, riding and camping is cool or packing up my van with locals and beer works too. Really looking forward to it. Ashamed to say looking more forward to the cars.

Weekend after should work for chili/movie/bagpipe night.

NYD Let's keep it real

Hi Guys,

Just a wee bit busy lately, but coming out of it. I finally got my 05 KLR to start on the choke, third time cleaning the carb did it. For all ya'all - DON'T let your bike sit, today's gas tends to gum up real bad, it's taken me way too long to get this new bike sorted out after the PO left it idle for too long.

So NYD ride. I'm not interested in a distance event, figured it's guaranteed to be cold and we pushed things pretty good last year, with that slow ride up to Duck. I figure meeting up and riding for 1hr or so then eating somewhere to warm up is good. Probably not the adventure some of you are looking for, but It's more an exercise in just getting out and starting the New Year on two wheels for me, and I want to spend time with my family too.

Williamsburg would be good, but I don't know any restaurants there. Richmond maybe? but that's is really getting too far for me. Virginia Dinner may work, don't know their schedule though... I'll call tommorow if I remember.

That's my .02 and worth every bit of it .

TWKLR
