Hmmm. That happened to some folks yesterday.

If I ain't on the Beemer riding twisty's in WV I'll make it, not sure about riding the Bonnie though, she decided her pacemaker needed a change, Crossroads Cylces supposed to deliver me one Fri, hoping that's all it is and she'll be back on the road...ah vintage bikes...

Hey, since I'm here, I'd like to tell y'all that I'm boomeranging back to NoVA. Jobs = scarce here in Denver. Have been since May. Gonna run the Warrenton Cycling Center for a bit. Y'all come on out and say howdy!

Nothing in particular.

I have been having problems with tag mascots lately...

1: I was the last one to see Ali. Pretty sure an animal grabbed her.
2: I was the last one to see Dewey. Actually I placed him on my front fender for a picture and then forgot to put him back in my tank bag. He was long gone by the time I got back, although I think he is in a much better place now.



3: I was the last one to see Ranger Duck. Same as Ali, I think another animal got him.

Hey ORexpat, I'm pretty sure that was you Old Man River and I passed just west of Wardensville Friday around 4:30. We were on our way from Broadway Va to Gainesboro Va via Rt. 259 through Lost River, Baker and Gore.

Mighta been. Got camp set up around 1800 at Seneca. Tried not to waste too much time . . . . I don't recall much of the ride. Honest ossifer, I only drank later . . .

Wish I could have made it, hopefully join you all next time. The Bonne did not want to play this morning, still having probs getting it started, thinking it might be bad ignition switch.
