Pictures or they don't exist.

Welcome. Take a ride West of Suffolk over to the Jamestown Ferry. Stay off 10 and take the back roads.

I ride a VFR 800 and a BMW GSA. Please feel free to contact me if you want to meet up. I am specifically itching to hit some two tracks or at least some dirt roads with the BMW. Thanks!
hope to ride with you some time

Here are some pics of my rides. The GSA is an 06. The VFR is an 03, purchased last December with 800 miles. It now has nearly 18k. I love the VFR.






Thanks! I look forward to meeting you guys.

"Different riding" up here? Well, that's one way to put it. Another would be to say "strait, non-twisty, flat, boring riding".

Welcome.

Welcome.
Oh I don't believe so if yo stay off the main roads. I road a new to me gravel road on your side of the water.

It's raining but the rain suit worked. That's why it's a rain suit.

Welcome.
+1

Now I did a 700 mile loop on Sat. slab to Harrisonburg 33 into WV, lots of twisties then 250 and south through the mountains and slab back.

If you can deal with a few hours of slab you have some incredible riding both paved twisties and FS roads.

Either of your bikes would be perfect.

I ain't no kid. (I do not believe I said that. So it must be true). The Seca does gravel.. Don't like real loud music and diet soda taste bad.


And your in Yorktown why didn't you go get the tag. Now it will be on the NC border. It's all your fault.

I get that alot.

I've been absent from the tags lately... too much work. And this next week I'll be down in Duck every day. :(

Our FNG should be starting next week, so hopefully that'll lighten my load up so I can enjoy the finer things in life.

Thanks again to Tommy for helping me get the deal done this weekend for his '01 Connie, and to Paul for meeting me 1/2 way to take Tommy home. Too bad we didn't have time to stop at Jeb's. Maybe at the next tech day..

I would, but we'll be in the company truck. I'm not allowed to take my bike down.

Personally, I'd rather stay down there for the week, rather than driving from Yorktown to Williamsburg every morning at 5, then from WBurg to Duck, work, then Duck to WBurg, then Wburg home.
