Where is Sounding Knob?

Well and about the pig waller. It wouldn't have happened if the Mefo had of come in, if we hadn't missed the right road "Does this look familiar Karl?" "Yup this is the right way!" and if the cows wouldn't have churned up the sodden ground. Otherwise that KTM with a rear Scorp would have gone right through there with the DRZ, the WR and the little Honda.

Actually, I woke up with a smile on my sunburned face this morning just thinking about the weekend. The kid was chattering on about doing more ADV events before bed last night. He had a great time too. Thanks guys.

[QUOTE=Dirtmonkey8;24036499]What a great weekend. It was good to meet a bunch of folks, catch up with others and explore a portion of WV that just begs to be ridden. Thanks to everyone for making my first rally an unforgettable time.

Good write-up. Looks like the Bluegrass route was beautiful. LF was a blast. I burned home on 250 and 64. Thanks to everyone who made it great and helped me with the first rolling flat I've had since I first rode a mini-bike 40 years ago! I'll scan through my vids to see if I caught anything good before the lens got too dusty!

You know it's very difficult having a good time with this crowd.



I arrived tired after hours riding the bike in hostile conditions.






Hey I just got here




when a man loves a motorcycle very much he throws it on the ground and has his way with it.


JDRocks indeed:






Never rains.


Porn.

I don't eat pork so I missed these beauties that GreenFlyFarmer brought.


Scotty says "freeze dried food is only for emergencies"






Where's Yukon Cornelius?




Makes armpit fart:


Who's yer daddy?






no filter




will not end well:


Skippi, don't go 120 miles an hour on the way home, OK? Sorry about your trauma, but congrats on the new diggs.




Holley, there were a few of us that thought Loftus was riding your bike



Da Mayor


ElTigre the Merciless:


Love this guy.




Holy shit I need to take a break.


More here, then in a day or two, I'll update Mediocrity.

Great Time!

Good to see everyone again! Clarence and I had some additional adventure riding home when I got a flat just before hitting Rt.33. So we pulled the sheet metal screw out of the rear tire and changed the tube. It was good practice for my upcoming ride to Colorado. I have a theory about rear tire flats on my bike. It seems whenever I put a Michelin T-63 on the front, I get a rear tire flat. I think the tread design picks up shit on the road and throws it back at the rear tire. Last year we all ran Pirelli MT-21's on front and not a single flat among us with over 12,000 cumulative miles in 3 weeks. No more Michelin's for me!

Some pics:

Stopped for lunch at Southern Kitchen in New Market, VA on the way to Laurel Fork. It was nice to get out of the pouring rain. People in the booth next to us were whispering about all the motorcycle accidents they've witnessed. Terrific!



Soggy campground.



Ramp Ranger!



Serious business.



Sun finally came out.



Off to the Sinks of Gandy.



Our fearless leader.















Had a Honey Boo Boo.



View from the top of Spruce Knob.



Lunch!!! This place had a tribute to the X-Files in the men's room.



It really was the size of a baby.



Blackwater Falls.



All packed up and ready for the 5-0.



P.S. I'm enjoying H14 and Campcook's coffee right now. The Back Porch blend gets 2 thumbs up from me.

I did not take many pictures . I want to give a big thanks to Scotty Kevin Mike and Torks for feeding me and Wayne for feeding me and keeping me from getting lost.
I would like to thank everyone for helping make my wedding anniversary a blast once again.

Andrew if you feel the need we will ride Potts Mountain Jeep trail. here is a photo looking down on a easy section.

Directly South of Monterey, VA. We ate lunch in Monterey, headed East on 250, turned right on Sounding Knob Rd at the top of the "hill" and we came back out after some nice roads, creek crossings, etc. on Davis Run Rd which rejoined 250 just East of where we entered. Really cool road and very scenic. It crosses a rock slide just after the spur that looks like you are on Mars. It has a dead end spur that goes up to where the Sounding Knob fire tower once stood. Not very technical, but not a good road for all bikes. I learned a lot of new roads over the past few days. I really liked the gravel from Bluegrass Valley into WV. Really pretty in there and other than some potholes a very easy well maintained road that most any bike could take.

I have done that thing twice ..... the next time I am just going to pitch the bike down to the bottom and walk to it.

Halfplate wants to ride it . I do not find it that much fun on the 690 but I imagine it would be much more enjoyable on a bigger bike

If Andrew wants a new bike that would be one way to go about getting a new one.
