I was late getting up to Frederick for the meet. 10:30 was the time, and I woke up at 10am. Took off north on route 270, and was doing about 85mph. It seems like everyone was in a hurry, cars were passing me like I was standing still. Saw 3 police cruisers giving tickets.

Got to the harley shop off of 355, and no one was there. I remembered something about a restaurant, and went up and down 355 trying to find it. Out of the corner of my eye, I saw a bunch of ugly gs's.



Layering is the key to staying warm.



Bmw r7/5 with a sidecar






We have been on all of these roads, but it was just nice to be out riding.


Cityclip crash site






Did some minor offroading





2 gs's, 1 speed triple and one bmw with a sidecar







high rock, 3 hangliders ready to take off. It was freezing up there.

Y'all are crazy. It was much too cold to ride a motorcycle today . . .



























. . .

Road closed? Why?




Hey, Steve, Lime Kiln Rd. is still a decent path.

What's with advrider as gs's? Why do you all pick gs's? And not beautiful speed triples?

CItyclips gs1200 had a bit of a problem, it seems like the fuel thingy would not open when he inserted the key, maybe it was frozen. But he had to unbolt all the hex bolts to get fuel in there. Sucks.

It was definatly a good ride, Eap did a awesome job leading us around. He knows the roads pretty well. I was warm most of the time, until we got off the bikes at high rock. But when We got back on the bikes, it was perfect. Thanks to gerbing's electric clothing line.

I have yet to meet a bike I didn't like, that bmw with a sidecar was sweet, wish I had a ride on it. Maybe next time.

Hmm, a fz1 as a adventure touring bike? Maybe http://www.advrider.com/forums/newre...e=1&p=1137108#

I love Lime Kiln. One of the few roads that is better after they paved it. I try to work it into my commute occasionally.

Back before they paved it, I encountered a herd of cattle on the Snickersville Turnpike end (the old pavement). The farmers were moving their cows from one field to another and I ended up coming along just as they all came out onto the road. An interesting experience.

Looks like you guys had a pretty good time. I was comatose from all the food over the weekend.

It doesn't last very long but it is fun. I usually end up riding it east-to-west but yesterday I rode west-to-east and realized it's much more fun that way--faster, with better sight lines.

I rode home from the folks' place in Richmond yesterday. It was damn cold but I couldn't resist taking the long way home, hitting some roads I hadn't sampled in awhile.
