Yeah, the weather channel is showing no rain for today and tomorrow, and then isolated for Saturday.

It looks like I'll be riding all 3 days.

Let me know if anyone wants to go along today and/or Friday.

One way or the other, I will see you all Saturday, WEATHER PERMITTING.

Thursday turned into a deluge.
I think this area is becoming a rainforest.

I am putting in a window AC unit in the basement to keep down the humidity and mold. I am not getting water in basement, but the high humidity is ruining some of my leather gear, not to mention the rust potential on the older bikes.

UPDATED AGAIN ON AUGUST 3, 2013

########################################

RE-RELOCATING TO GOSSET'S GROCERY in Leicester
(The term "grocery" is misleading because it's more than that)

This new location has several advantages:


1. Huge outdoor canopy with lots of picnic tables under it.
2. Lots of motorcycle parking right where you eat.
3. Faster better cheaper breakfast outdoors.
4. Any size coffee for $1.00
5. Two blocks closer to Asheville.



%%% Greater Asheville Motorcycling Area EVERYSATURDAYMORNING Breakfastmeet&Ride %%%

WHEN: Any or every warmish, dryish, Saturday morning you choose to show up,
9AM for breakfast and/or 10AM for rides (a possible variety of rides depending on what type of bike you are riding that particular Saturday)
WEATHER PERMITTING. No prior planning necessary: just show up or not.


WHERE: GOSSET'S GROCERY IN LEICESTER
across from Leicester Automotive
(From Asheville NC, ride NW on Hwy 63
to 2741 New Leicester Hwy).


WHO: Advriders of the World, living in or visiting the Greater Asheville Motorcycling Area. Please join us any Saturday.

WHAT: Three Choices:
1. Ride to Breakfast (9am), & ride home afterwards.
2. Ride to Breakfast (9am), plan rides during breakfast, join any group ride after breakfast (departing about 10am).
3. Breakfast at home, meet at 10am for a group ride.


WHY: Why not? FAST access to dirt, gravel, and twisty paved roads. Why plan rides individually, when we can meet same time same place every week (or not)?

PLENTY of parking.

It's Friday 8/9.
Weather forecast for Saturday 8/10 is looking a bit dismal.
Surprise, surprise.
Maybe August 17 will be better?

Yeah, at Gosset's, weather permitting, just a little earlier for breakfast since they are very fast there.

Its up for sale soon. I promised to get rid of one when I got the strom. And these are prior to the light rash from a low speed front washout, you can see that in the rim pic.
