Mr. Rat said he wanted a ride on a real motorcycle. I got the old Hog out and headed south.



This intersection is just a stones throw from the Parkway. Squirrel Spur gets real squirrely south of here so be sure to ride the whole thing if you haven't been on it 100 times like some around here.



Look behind ths tree under the rock for Mr. Rat.

Happy to see you got the grab after all!! I have not made it to a Paintbank breakfast yet. Maybe next month, my 1 year anniversary with TVR

Damn, I was just on the BRP all afternoon between Roanoke and 58. Did you make a stop at Mabry? I was riding a black FZ8 dressed in black with a black dual sport helmet.

I rode the Parkway from Tuggle's Gap down to Groundhog Mt. then Squirrel Spur up to Meadows of Dan where I stopped for gas. A storm was coming in so I went back to Tuggle's then Rt.8 to Christiansburg then home. Rode in the rain for about 10 miles then got out of it. It was great to ride all day in such warm temperatures for March!!

This Rat is a true Hooligan... As we sit here to take in the view and plan the next hiding spot... He is trying to convince me to take him across the state line..... He said "Take me across the border.... They will come for me"! A true hooligan.

We didn't go far today, just upstream for a little adventure:



The Rat wanted to hang out by the river a little more and watch the fishermen. His nest is in the guardrail with some leaves :)

Too funny, that is were I originally going to hide the RAT. My gas light (no gage) came on at the beginning of Squirrel Spur... I was in need if fuel so I opted out.
I figured the NCTOR would be grabbed with the RAT, not too far apart.

Fuel in Roanoke area?

Hey Guys- sorry for the hijack...

Anyone know if there any any stations in Salem area that are selling alcohol free fuel?

The market on Apperson that used to sell ethanol free gas is closed. I don't know of any place in Salem that sells ethanol free. There are several places listed on pure-gas.org that sell ethanol free.
Pure Market at 2131 Franklin Rd
Snappy Food Market on Liberty Rd at Plantation
Plantation Market 7372 Plantation
Garden City Grocery
Express Stop 3509 Plantation.

Smith's General Store in Copper Hill sell premium no ethanol.
