Dave, you need to bring that 990 to Raleigh one weekend. I can show you all three of our turns. I'll even ride the KTM for you if you're not comfortable turning it yet.

Congrats on the new bike!

New tag. After riding deep into Floyd county with a particular water crossing in mind I realized the phone/camera were back at home with my wallet. Sad but true, so I cruised up the street to a local swimming hole.
Combine these terms :
The season we are in.
Faster than a jog.
What you do in this hole.
What cavemen hit cave women over the head with.






RAT is at the left edge of the fence/rock wall, inside a brick. If it were me, I'd take 221 to Ran Lynn(mind the construction and new traffic patterns) and go almost to the end. The swimmin hole is on the left. NVTS

Bruced. Brick moved, no rat.

DaveO,
We must have just missed each other. I stopped by the Swim Club on my way home from work and picked up Ms. RAT.
I don't have Smart Phone technology, so I took photo evidence and got home, but have misplaced my camera cord, so I can't post the evidence. Y'all just have to trust me on this till I retrieve my cord. I'll be able to post the pics of the grab and a new tag tomorrow (Wed)

Good suggestion, but I don't have a "trash" bike to take to Runnett Bag

It's all good, pfestus1. Checked the thread leaving work, at about 7:20pm. Saw the tag was placed (or posted) a few hours earlier. Only 20 minutes from home, I extended my commute to grab the rat. As soon as I pulled up, I knew it was gone. So what time did you grab it?

Thanks. Just got it Saturday. Moving up on 200 miles. I am really enjoying it. I still love my KLR, however.

Dave), I left my work at 7 pm, and was at the tag site about 7:30. It was just off my path going up Bent Mountain.
Congrats on the beautiful KTM!
I'm busy this morning, but will get out for a ride this afternoon to find Ms. Rat a new spot.

Beautiful floyd county ride ahead

OK, I just got home from a very nice ride thru some of Floyd County's most beautiful roads.
Christiansburg Pike runs from Floyd to Pilot. Leave the Pike at:

AKA Thunderstruck Road. It is a nice gravel road and will take you down along the Little River. Eventually you will pass this junction:

Keep going on Thunderstruck, following the direction of flow of the river.. and then you will come to this junction:

At this sign, keep following the river for 2 miles to the end of the road at:

Look along the bottom fence board at the very end of it where it goes into the ground.

I put Ms Rat in a plastic bag to keep her dry and covered her with some debri.


When you leave, I recommend taking Sower Road. Its beautiful also and will take you back to Christiansburg Pike closer to Pilot.
