Hey Tom, I just noticed your ride. What the hell did I miss? Did you get rid of your tiger? Looks like you and Wayne had a fun day of riding WV/VA.

Yep Lance, traded a Tiger for a Tiger. The oil needed changing and the ashtray was full on the old Tiger so it was time for her to go.

+1000 mile week-end (mostly in W VA). It was great.

Congrats... I miss the lines on the ol' girl but nice to have a new one to ride around. When I was doing the trans lab last year, two of my ride mates from Michigan had New Tigers and were fans. Their's was white... I thought yours was a Ducati... Must be the curse of the red better than orange

More WV Pics

Before dinner Sunday, I showed Tom some of the South Branch Valley north of Franklin.

Reeds Creek Rd.








Mitchell Mountain Rd.




Sweedlin Hill from the top of South Fork Mountain.


It was shortly after this we saw the BIG cat. A 5 to 6 ft long cat.
It had a very long tail. We both saw it.

More Mitchell Mountain Rd.






Yeah, a big cat in WV.

Even More WV Pics

After dinner we headed back to LF.

We stopped at Spruce Knob.


The Sinks Of Gandy from the top of the cave entrance.
Tom is standing at the bottom of the hill by the cave.


90 degees to the right.


Another 90 degrees right and you have Yokum Knob.


Back at LF.


Monday morning just outside of Glady.


We probably saw 200 deer, 50 or 60 turkeys, a coyote, a bald eagle, and that cat.

Glady Rd.




Seneca Rocks.


Breakfast at the Gateway Family Restaurant in Riverton, WV.





Back in Maryland.






I'm done now.

Hey Wayne,

You get that seat done? Got an air stapler you can use if needed. Just did a seat for a buddy this past week end . Now he's gotta get that bike of his sold and off my battery tender and out of my driveway. But that's another story...

Anyone been thinking about owning a mid 80's Honda cruiser? Good battery and newly recovered seat .

I was thinking about you before I decided to take that road back to the campground. I figured Tom could help me if I meet the same fate. Turns out the ST is not a bad DS bike.

I will probably order one this week. I'm waiting to see if there is an ADV discount.

I think I have a stapler I can use. I'll let you know.

I'm positive that is what Skierd and I put on his Yamaha before he went north. Think he got it from another inmate.
The seams where the side panels and seat panel came together were starting to come apart, loose stitches. Saw genuine surprise on Dave's face when I reached into my tool box and pulled heavy duty nylon thread and an equally heavy needle out. Stitched it in a jiffy. Wish we shot a picture or two, it looked really nice.

Cycle World Magazine contacted me earlier this month and told me I was selected to ride one of the Ten Best Bikes of the Year the "Ducati Diavel". I just got back from Fredricksburg and all I can say is what an awsome bike. 162 hp Crusier. What a way to spend a Sunday afternoon.

Thanks Ducati and Cycle World Magazine.
