It's supposed to arrive on 05 Sep, clear customs and be delivered on 16 Sep. I hope they are right this time but I'm not holding my breath.

I took T & TC tagging while we were in WV. Here we are grabbing the Appalachian Tag on top of Spruce Knob.



...and making the drop at Cheat Summit Fort.

Well, someone did say recently that my exhaust looks like a gatlin gun. Reminds me of the Ron White skit. Can someone find and post that for me? Talks about his BIL getting up at 5am or something like that, spreading deer urine all over himself and so on and so on. Then he says, I hit one with a van going 50 miles an hour. Hilarious

I have pics of the deer hair stuck in my boot from the last one but it doesn't show up very good. Reminded me of BPs handguard with the feathers sticking out of it after she hit a buzzard. Just a heads up her bike is for sale as is Kevins/BC/Badcolds Strom. Check the fleamarket.

RTE Proposal -Chesapeake City MD Fire House



Hey you FFs,

I took this picture a week or so ago on a phototagging mission to remind me to invite you to an RTE. It's a couple of weeks away, but if you got nothing to do on a Sunday morning......

I'll post a reminder as we get closer to the date.

No problem, Chris. I gotta talk to you about rear shocks and windscreens some time.

One of our WV ventures this time was Real Estate (for Wayne).

We checked out this place in the outskirts of Franklin.

I rate the driveway as a Category 6 on the Whitewater Scale.





Tom was getting a "feel" for the place.



Here's Wayne offering some seated assistance to Tom as he fixes a rear puncture.



Camp Wayne....the first place on the left.



We flooded the Alpine Lodge, as usual.



Some roads are 50' wide and smooth and others you'd need a rope and a rock hammer to get up.



WV is some of the best riding paved/dirt you might ever want to experience. Lookn' forward to the next visit.

Unfortunately the piece of road between us and Warrenton, VA is the least desirable pavement on the planet. IMHO

It was SLiP's. He told me today that after we all left he packed all his stuff up and realized he had a flat as soon as he pulled out of the campground.
