Will do!

I'm considering a smoker but I ain't enough of a man to ride a 300.

I dont care who comes but please just ride your own ride!! DO NOT FOLLOW ME INTO A TURN!!! Please.


We are all big boys and if some are keeping a faster pace then others or if somebody wants to head down a road that others do not then we can branch off at any time. No harm no foul.


Looks like I will be 2up riding my friends Triumph Tiger. He will be on a 09 White DR650 and we may have a 08 KLR650 and a Buell Ullyses with us.


919, I like that route. How much of it is dirt?
I am thesame that rode the Wr250, I still have it. I havent ridden it in a long time. I am a big Boy and I am ok with going where ever. If I doint like a road I can go another way and be ok with that. I havent ridden with the new wheel and Tire combo much but what I have done seems pretty good. So where do you guys meet up at?

I'm doing paved for now. First bike ever. A DL650(weestrom) 17,000 miles in two years is good for me. Yall can follow, or lead, I will get the hell out of the way. I'm gonna do a philpott loop towards Martinsville/collinsville since I grew up that way..... It is all good.

I went up there today. We rode about 250 miles today. So I probably will not be going. Wife might be ill if I go 2 days and not take her. It was a great day to be out .

Good meeting you guys today. Conditions were perfect! An epic ride!!

Hopefully we can ride up to Mortimer and Globe rd sometime soon. Miles and miles of dirt.


For those that didn't make it, you missed out!


Later....

Kinda strange. I don't remember a bit of fog, especially on squirrel spurr rd.

Fun times and the Globe rd area sounds like fun.
