So sorry, I didn't make it Thursday for dinner. Ended up getting surprised with being laid off from work that morning... But I got a few irons in the fire already (hope one of them pans out soon) and a lot more time to ride for a few weeks.

I'm off tag hunting!

yeh, yeh...free. Just get up and walk out. Shouldn't be a problem...

Yep, 3rd Thursday. And if you keep an eye on this thread you can meet up for rides. Or if you are planning a ride let us know. Never know who might show up.

Don't know where to ride, new to the area with a brand new Tiger in the garage. Took off towards York in search of pedestrian dirt roads today, still trying to break it in and get my legs under me. Might take a while...

I live between Lk Wylie and Clover and was out riding today, could have shown you what gravel there is in the area..... There's not a lot but there is some here and there with more on the western side of the county.

Ride Video - Madness

My latest video, the making of which netted me a visit by a Union County Sheriff's Deputy.

He stopped by to make sure I wasn't doing "anything crazy" which I wasn't and assured him of such. Checked my papers and we went our separate ways.
