I went to the classic motorcycle days a few years ago. It was a good time. If I can swing it, I may go this year.

A fund raising event, in memory of the VA Tech victims is taking place the weekend of April 27th. It is a ride from various locations to VA tech. This is the sixth year of the ride. It's called Hogs4Hokies, but they welcome all types of bikes. Some of the key individuals that help organize the ride don't even own HD's.

Antique'ing in WV

My fiancé got an invite from a co-worker to use their cabin in Lost River for the weekend. I threw the XR on the back of the truck and tooled around the mountains between Lost River State Park and Bryce. Great weekend to ride - I know I wasn't the only guy out there riding - as I passed XDragRacer in the Land Cruiser on Saturday.

Behind Lost River State Park by the Howards Lick intersection.



Exploring Snyder Ridge between Bryce and Lost River. Just got the Antique tags for the 25 year old 88 XR600R



Judge Rye Road

Judge Rye Rd always a nice ride.

Thanks to VAC, Frank and others I did the KLR rotor/ss brakeline upgrade yesterday, so now the KLR stops like a loaded dumptruck rather than a frieght train

And thanks to Mrs. VAC for the awesome food spread

Anyone have any decent 21 and 18 inch dual sport tire take offs they would like to part with? Looking to find a set for a DR350 I just picked up. Trying to get it up to snuff with minimal cash outlay - so the cheaper the better

Thanks,

David

Ride back from Laurel Forks

For those of you who made LF, it was a great time! I had a blast riding the roads and stirring up the dust. When I left Sunday morning I took the long way home, I took a bunch of side roads and let them lead me to wherever they took me. And I finally took a bunch of photo’s.

The scenery was gorgeous and the pictures cannot capture the splendor of views.









I found this house with the octagon section interesting. There were actually a few of these houses in that town. Mooreland if I remember correctly.



Lot’s of cool looking barns in the area.



More shots of the country side.





And I happened across Dinoland!
