I like to just play it by ear. I have no time schedule and no particular place to be. But it is typical for me to be on my way at least by 10am.

If you get out, just send a pm or email (it all comes to my phone eventually) and I'll send back an "I am here" if and when I receive it.

Sounds like you had a nice ride. I have always enjoyed that area great little loop. I decided to ride the tractor until I ripped the right rear valve stem off bush hogging.
So I jumped on the bike and went over to Sunken City Brewery to check it out , it was so-so. I would avoid that area (Smith Mountain Lake)until well after the fourth way to much traffic.
Anyone riding today?

Goosecreek and Draley


He's back off the disabled list. We did 130+ mile loop today starting at Peaks of Otter, down Sheep Creek, and eventually ended up at Robinson Gap, and headed back on Pera Rd.



He said he was listening to Eminem, but I saw him stuffing an M&M in each ear. The good news is you can eat them when you're done listening to them.

Had a nice day next time maybe we will have better luck at the swimming hole.
I like m&m's almost as much as my beer

Other than just a couple of camping excursions, I mostly only do day-rides within 75 miles or so of the Lynchburg area.

I would like to experience an ADV trip on my KLR, but I have not figured out the mc-camping thing yet (at least not smoothly).

So, I have a compromise for a 500 mile trip with no camping, but still free accommodations...

Starting today, I am off until the 8th of July. I am considering a little ADV-trip during this time, using as many back-roads and forest roads as I can (I prefer dirt roads) to get to Cumberland, MD., spend the next day tooling around my hometown and visiting with Mom and Dad, then return the following morning, the same or a similar way (another 250 miles).

I think each way can be done in 1 day with an early start. No camping (I don't have enough gear yet) so can travel light, eat and gas up in small towns, etc.

I suspect that I will have to do this alone, but I am putting this out there just to see if anyone is interested in tagging along. It is nice to have company and it is a huge safety factor too.

I will be watching the weather forecasts for the week to see what the best window of opportunity is.

PM me if interested in what should be a relatively easy (but 2 full-days) ride.
