DS ride tomorrow morning starting about 9:00 am from the Crabtree Falls Parking lot off Rt 56. Just down the hill from Montebello Store. Just show up. Maybe you could do it on the strom, if not it should be very entertaining anyway... for me

Hey I have a good friend who lives in Sterling and rides a VTX. His name is Tom. Do you know him?

I might be there on the DR if I can't get these lame dicks in C'ville together

Is this a loop? Trying to figure if I'd trailer the dr down (hold off with the mud slinging about the trailer YFFs, trying to save my tires and have ridden enough miles this year to justify a few pulls!)

I'm picking it up tomorrow morning. Never ridden a DS before so it might be better for me to get a little practice in the local sandbox before I try to follow someone offroad. How's that for lame dick? :ymca

Of course, I could always take the CBR1000 ...

Yep, loop. We're trailering from Richmond so we'll be back where we started by the end of the day. hopefully. The 2 guys that REALLY know their way around up there bailed. Hope to see you there. I'll pm you w/ a cell number.

Well Shrep, major tire distributors can't get tires here quick enough for the former potentate.

Thumpy, Grimm boy and I will be there.

Man I feel like I screwed you guys! Wish I could've talked to you before you left. Sorry for taking you up that goatpath. It was a shortcut. No, really it was tougher steeper and more loose than I remember. "Gene the noob" had no hope of getting up there and it wasn't a good idea for your big bikes either.

When I came back down to look for you guys I found Gene all hot and sweaty struggling w/ his upside down bike on that real steep part. Lonnie said, "those two guys said 'tell that jackass from the internet that we're done w/ this bs' and they headed back to big trail". Then they called me 'The Internet Jackass' the rest of the day.

So I went haulng back down the trail to find you to tell you it was just a little further till we hit hardpack and asphalt but y'all were gone and I wasn't sure which way. So rode down the backside of the mountain, took dirt/asphalt to Lowesville for a burger. A very kick-ass burger from this little gas station - convenience store - game weigh station that we already knew about. Then another killer dirt fireroad (big wide and flat) to the top of another mountain where there's a microwave tower, rocky outcrop and a killer view. Anyway it would've been great after that one rough bit. Sorry I didn't tell you the plan before youleft.

No problem man. Those baby heads under 4 inches of leaves were a PIA. Never knew when you were going to hit one. If we'd known there was an end we'd stuck with ya. We had a good ride though. A few pics and more commentary on the big trailer ride coming.

Think I'm gonna stick to fireroads for now.
