Off Topic ~ Sorry

Is anyone in the area using a TT GPS mount?

My GPS is my iPhone in my pocket. And I sell GPS units, you'd think I'd have one!

As long as we are off topic and talking accessories, is there a store in the area that stocks a big selections of accessories for DS bikes?

I want to go see and touch this stuff rather than just get stuff online that I hope will be what I want.

The biggest selection I've seen would be at Morton's in F'burg. May not fit your ride, but you could at least see the product. Lots of clothes there.

Okay Earlysvillians, time to get your ADV on and venture South again.



Those numbers mean anything to you Oldnogps?





Two posts by my bike, look at the base of the one on the right.

Hmmmm. So we have mountains, a vineyard, and a pond. And it's in southern Albemarle.

Not exactly. "Next Season" in the year, there will be lots of apple trees blooming in this little "depression between uplands, hills, or mountains."

"Next Season" "Depression between uplands, hills, or mountains" Rd.

Also, the tag is indeed in Albemarle, but mere yards away from Nelson.

Does that make it clearer?

(you can also plug coordinates into mapping software I am told...)

Randy - I know where it is but those funky GPS coord things don't mean much to someone with the user name of "OldnoGPS"
I guess you were out and about when I came by your house, blew the horn, stopped and played with your dogs. I was down by the tag spot on the long way around coming back from Wayne's. Great day to ride.
P.S. - Darden Towe (as in the park) was married to my cousin and was a great guy. Yeah, I'm a local.

Yes it was an excellent day to ride. I was taking off layers at every stop. Sorry I missed you but there was tagging to do.

Holler prior to next time. Would have joined you and I really want to check out that WR. Never know where I'll be...

Announcing your intentions won't keep you from being Bruced, but you'll have a good ride down there in any case.

Happy hunting!

Probably not, but it should still be a nice ride on a nice day with a pretty lady and a cool bike!

Grab Made

VABuckaroo and Sexy Boots picked up the Brain in south BUFU Albemarle county this morning. Great road it was on.
Details to come once pics have loaded.
Hint: There's a good place to eat near the new drop off.
