Just called the restaraunt to let them know to expect roughly 20 people. No problem if we are a few more, or less.

Glad to hear no major damage to you, or your steed, occured! Ice and prayers!!! Really hope you make the ride tomorrow.

Crap Ethan! Glad you're OK! I too went down today

but I was on soft grass/mud off Ballahack Rd at low speed. Sort of washed the front wheel out on a rut hidden beneath the grass . Nothing harmed but my ego ...

Happy New Year Everybody!

Virginia Beach awaits this morning. Temperature at 0600 is a balmy 40F (it is January, after all). Temp is rising as the sun is coming up. Mid sixties today for the high!

See you soon.

Nice Ride, Happy New Year all, had to bail early since I'm cooking a pork shoulder and some black eyed peas....there some other roads I spotted that would like to hit again, we'll have to do this more often, take a little ride and then do some coffee.

Nice ride, was good to get for a few hours. Bronco was a bust, body was very rough, too much of a project for me right now.

Great Ride

It was a great morning for a great ride. I enjoyed meeting everyone and am already looking forward to the next time. Here's a few pics from this morning for anyone who wasn't there.
