84 to 81 is the way to go. There is no reason to fuck around with NYC and NJ.

Would love to join you guys but that would mean ditching my sport bike friends.

Jake - Ozarks are awesome - smooth twisty roads

I would swing WVa, Kent, Tenn, Ark, OK, Tex on the way down

then La, Miss, Ala (Barber stop a must), Ga, NC - Blue Ridge Pkwy on the way North

I would use Slab as needed, but as little as possible.

I need to speed up surgery - but I may be able to swing it

I will know within the next 10 daze.

That sounds like my group's exact plan...but backwards.

Sadly as a teacher I can't get the time off. I am flying out. Though being off July and August I could in theory ride to Laguna and Indy and anywhere else I want in between.

I guess I'm just going to leave whenever and do whatever and get there on Thursday. Sounds like a plan to me.

I'm Out :(

Spoke to Doc - Surgery will probably be in mid March & I'll be out of commission for 3 months or so.

But, I may try & swing Daytona or Dominican Republic for a boys trip

I was in a head on cage accident in Oct. '11 - Some drunk drove the wrong way on a hiway in NJ & whacked me good. Never saw him coming as I was going up an incline - Broke both lower legs, a femur, ribs, + more, thankfully I don't remember accident.

I was in hospital for a month & rehab for 2 weeks -

From my femur break, my left leg is now an 1" shorter than my right, so they are going to install a femur nail which will re-lengthen my leg.

I've not worked since & its tough to walk for long periods or stand for long.

But I can still ride
