Which day you going?

Im up for either of them. Natural bridge is alot smaller than tower city thou.

Rode the pits today, man no one was out there. Had a blast! You can get in there with some gs's :)

Well - wherever we ride dirt lets go hang as a group. I don't care where we go, but lets go.

Dave... you have to bring the WR, not the Vstrom.

The poodle excuse only works once... How heavy is the poodle that your wife needs you to pick it up?

If I can get the 6k service done on Friday, I'd like to crash this little soiree'.

Tires are down to nuthin' and was gonna put on a set of Pirelli Scorpions, but might just have to hit that third set of TKCs if we're talkin' a fun ride!

BTW, Scorch, I rode 80 miles of gravel roads in Loudoun County today, and another hundred of street,,,,,,after working. The strom is supabad w/ the GPS! Today's ride would have been killer on one of those KTM supermoto's at Harolds. Hmmmmmmmmmmmmm.

FYI, my court date is Wed.
I saw that post on dcsportbikes, sure looks tempting. Id love to go. If this falls through im on it like flys on crap.

We just can't let witold lead.

Hey, when Barry's wife decides to make him get a poodle this Sat. Lets go on that new river ride.


Hey man, you got the gps set up a bit weird. You should zoom out a bit, and have the detail higher, so you can see if those roads end or not. I like getting my detail at 0.8m or 1.2m. Thats good enough to know the roads keep going. Usually roads that end, end on 0.2 to 0.5.

Gravel roads on the gps are dashed lines. Id love to do a route that is all gravel, but since I have a street bike, it will suck.

We should also hook up with stonewall, he knows gravel roads from Montrey all the way to taskers gap!

Xsquiggy, scratchin dirt. Stonewall wrote this on madrider. He lives in montrey, va. Has a huge farm. I think he knows trails all through out, if we dont do the street legal thang!

Are you talking about the Terrapin and Rattlesnake trails on the South Pedlar ATV trail system? Those trails aren't too far away but there is no riding at Natural Bridge, it's just a huge tourist trap.

Will you all be on street legal bikes? You could come here in the same amount of time or less and go on a much better ride. The boundary trail over there is 11 miles but the other loops are a mile or less.
If you get here early enough we can go on a 200 mile loop.

He knows trails and chit. Besides, how about just putting a plate on the wr? You got tons.

Dave was the only confirmed rider I had. And my wife. So, with Dave bailing I'm taking the wife to Taskers. More the merrier.
