You guys coming from the north east just taking I-81 down? Looking for some more scenic options, time permitting.

There are plenty of better options. Just look for the squiggly lines on a map. I have found those to be the best.

I'm with you. I hope to be able to come back home with a "souvenir." I plan on leaving the Northeast Monday morning. We are once again suppose to get a snow storm Monday night so I'm hoping to blast through and end up south enough to just deal with the rain.

Did that this past summer when I headed out west, discovered 14A doing that. A lot easier then though as there were less boring lines to get in the way out there.

Might be time to get a GPS I can load tracks onto...which hurts my cheapness.

Screw it, tank bag and printed out directions will be sufficient =D

FYI:

Olympia Moto Sport & Klim Spring stocking orders will be here next week in time for the March Moto Madness Rally.

We also have Firstgear and Wolfman Luggage shipments that will be coming in before the event. Powerlet's Spring order came in this week. ROK straps are in route already too.

Not sure where we are going to put it all. We ordered a ton of gear.

We'll be giving a lot of gift certificates away at the rally and will be open at 7am Sunday for those that want to use them before going home.

Klim is giving away a Traverse Jacket & Pant at the Rally. If you win it & it's the wrong size, you can exchange it at the shop for the correct size and color.

Trail 81 & 82 will be cleared of all blow down from last weeks storm before the rally starts. We're going to hit 82 this weekend and 81 on Wednesday. I'll post a trail report when we are done and I've ridden each of them.

Hey Mike, do you think you could stock some "popcorn" at the store?

Man I can't wait! I've been packing what I can and trying to get everything else that I'll need to pack sorted in my head. Planning is EASILY half the fun of taking a trip. I plan on arriving Thursday, but if Wednesday is a go, I may see if I can finagle my way into showing up early. May take a flyrod, may not.
