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.
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.




See you there this Saturday,

WEATHER PERMITTING.




FAQ's:

# Yes, there can be more than one ride, depending on who shows up on what kind of bike. For instance, if 5 or 10 guys show up on dualsports, and 5 or 10 guys show up on streetbikes, then they would form 2 different groups for 2 different rides that Saturday.

# Yes, bring your friends.

# Yes, you can post it elsewhere.


# Yes, bring your maps and GPS's

I have never seen so many Timber Rattlers in the road as I have this year. I wonder if all this rain has anything to do with it. This one is on Crabtree Mountain Road, and appears to have at least 10 rattles and a button. I couldn't find a treebranch long enough to pin him down with, without getting close enough for him to strike.

Grapevine has been in shambles for the past few years. You almost need smoto or knobbies to get through a couple spots. How is it now?

Lumpy, grainy, patched-up pavement with gravel, rocks, & sticks all over it .

See you there.
Morning looks good.
Bring raincoat in case it's raining at the end of the day.

Something in the title of the video is incorrect. That bike is one of three, not one of four.

Jamie James's serial number system is confusing because he began each series with the number 2 (his final AMA pro racing number) instead of the number 1. (That's why the guy in the video couldn't figure out where the "other" bike went).
Thus the bike in the video is the third and last bike, number 4.
The one I showed you yesterday, John, was the first bike in the series, number 2, which was on the cover of Cycle World some years back. Jamie let me ride it BEFORE it was on that cover. I'm sure it is the fastest bike I've ever ridden.

Tuesday's forecast looks good at the moment.
I will probably go riding if it stays that way.
