Hello adventurers. I have a question. How much do you think a 2003 DRZ with 13,000 miles that is in pretty great condition sell for? I may be picking one up, but at the price I'm paying I'm debating keeping it, and instead flipping it to fund a purchase of a WR250R at some point.

I will second Osaka if that's around where you'll be. The owner is very well known in Richmond, and some of his other restaurants are even more popular. Wild Ginger has the best lamb you will ever taste, he owns the Blue Goat which is a European Gastropub down at Libbie and Grove, and he just opened the Fat Dragon on the boulevard off of Broad Street. You can't go wrong with any of them.

I remember that Thankfully neither you nor the bike suffered any serious damage.

Is it a new building or just a new business in one those buildings on the right just before heading down hill to Lowesville?

Google maps has the address listed in the wrong section of road. Follow it NE a bit and you'll see it under construction in street view.

I'll happily leave the bike at home if evening eats of this sort pop into the rotation.

Old building, but they updated it quite a bit. Right on the road, so you can't miss it. It's within 1/4 mile of the elementary school (to the south of the school). News owners, redone, etc....

Thanks, I'll have to check it out today. I was going to ride 56 so this will work on my RTE loop today.

After the RTE

ToddZ and I are meeting to find/ride some dirt roads south of the James. We'll be at the BP on the south side of the Ben Harrison bridge at 1300 if anyone wishes to join us. It's just going to be an easy backroads search for dirt, working our way south and east. We may take the ferry back acorss when done.

I was really looking forward to the RTE today. BUT our nationwide network provider decided to crash their core routers that serve both our data centers. Looks like today won't be counted as a vacation day. Not a good start to 11 days off.

Did any plans for tomorrow ever crystallize?
