heading to deals gap tomorow.
leaving the store between 10:00 am and 10:30.
I expect to be back at the store around 19:00 aka 7pm.
i probably will not stop untill I reach the C.R.O.T. 110 miles from the store.

I ride recreationaly mid day at least one day a week, every week (usualy 250 miles or less) + one day every weekend (usualy 350 miles or more).

I would really like to hook up with some of you guys, however during the week is damn near impossible for me.. My main ride day is Sunday and usually push out between 10 and 11.. I usually ride 276 out of Greenville, to 288 to 178, up to the NC line and back.. I learned the loop this past weekend, so I may start doing that as well..

Too short of a notice for me STRECTH I would need at least a days notice to do a all day ride. The starting time is not a problem it's the return time, by the way I think you will be getting wet today if you go to Tennesse, enjoy the ride and becarefull.

I'm going to be riding this week. For me it depends on how my work schedule goes as sometimes I'm off during the week. I know it's supposed to be raining, but if we don't get what they're calling for and someone's going out let me know. Even if it's just a short jaunt.

Friday is supposed to be pretty rainy. I'm riding today if anyone else is going to. I'm going to head out to cycle gear, grab some chain lube (sorely needed), and then head out to the store. Anyone else? Oh, and if any of yall ever see a silver VFR800 at the store please come up and introduce yourselves. I always feel akward going up and talking to groups I don't know.

out today (thursday) playing on 178/215.
I saw someone on what looked like a ninja heading the other way, not sure who it was.
he did a little turn around jesture with his finger and pointed behind him.
I thought there might be a cop so I headed back to the store.

I've always felt that helmet tapping was universal for cop. does anyone hear use a different jesture?

I'm staying up by Deals Gap through Thursday -Sunday in Stecoh? the V-Strom Rally. Lst year there was about 100 - 80 bikes - 75% Stroms.

It's big time fun. camping is nice. Rooms may be booked.

The big Deal this Year is that they will have a Professional Riding Instructor there giving a free clinic, some one on one stuff. It's free.
I rode with her recently and it really changed the way I now ride.She's very entertaining.

Susan Galpin, she is fairly well known in this area at has done here thing at TWO before.Here semiar class is " How to execute corners before the Execute you" She rides fast and is in her mid-60's, Iron Butt Competitor,National MSF Instructor,Racer.....

Amos,
the DR is awesome, I hardly ride the Strom. I havent done any of the brake stuff or even the fork brace. I need a little help.

The DR took a little time to loosen up,and many oil changes. It's set up too lean and I need some help there too. It's still very quick, torque'y, fast handles good and has the poorest excuse for a seat.

When we have a sitter for Audrey, I can usually get out on the Friday(and sometimes the Thursday) before the weekend. Normally, we usually post up the week before when we have a sitter.
