After 3 great days of riding with Reddog* Sunday morning rolled around and it was time to make the solo trip back to the house. Thanks for making the big loop to include me in your ride!

Crossing back over into VA















Nearing the town of Blue Grass

Back in NC and happy to have successfully dodged all the rain showers.















What spot captured of the entire weekend...















....and of two days exploring.




Need to make it a point to get up to the Canaan Valley and #72 next time in that area.

That 3 days was a blast.

No real order but here are some others from my 2300 mile loop.

2012 Suzuki Dr650 Day Ride

I did a day trip on my Dr650 yesterday. Put the back-pack on and went for a ride to a small town. First time country ride, for me.

Later on I did this:

I got out for a little ride today myself, happy to report that I didn't fall off. Also didn't hit any rain and logged almost 300 miles this afternoon.

Storms were tracking on a NE angle today with gaps in between so you just had to keep that in mind as you rode. No sun here, just sunflowers.

Made it through the South Mtns dry and around Lake James as well...looked like my luck could change atop the Blue Ridge though.....


















Ate a mid afternoon lunch at the Italian place in Pineola then aimed for Mortimer.

















The weather looked like it would be OK for awhile yet down that way....

Pineola Rd is fun on the bigger adv bikes.

















Nine miles down the mountain and I run up on this.

















The Strom aint going over or under that one....and it aint moving without a chainsaw.

I guess that riding an up and back on 181 isn't too hateful.

Back down to see if I can get back through the South Mtns dry again.

Not too many pics but a fun afternoon spin nonetheless.


















Mortimer is at the crossroads of 90...so close and yet so far.



Who knows...I may have been closer than that even?

We just missed you out there today. Scrambling through laurel and greenbrier has me feeling like I've tangled with several cats.

Glad you missed the rain.
