Hey Mike while you are at it I need you to check my tire pressure and valves
Goose- I've never been to that one, I know the one on River Rd is descent. Try the other one we discussed down behind the Bank of America...Aviba or some thing like that. Another not Sushi but Vietnamese and excellent Restaurant is MeKong on Broad St. One of my favorites and try the Beef & Chix Grilled Platter. You will not be disappointed I promise.

Wow. Been going there on/off for the better part of a decade and have never had a problem with the quality of food there, though they can get ridiculously slammed so the wait can be another story. Sorry your experience varied.

I am riding today, can leave around 11:00 and be gone until dinner...Big bikes, little bikes, street, dirt, mixed, fast, slow, whatever...I don't care, I just want to ride and have an excuse to get me out of a all afternoon trip to "build a Bear" with 14 Girl Scouts! Help me!


Let me know...

Wish I could help a brotha out...but my window of opportunity to ride is from 9-2 so will going to the Richmond BMW Riders Club breakfast meeting at 9:30 at Babes in Carytown and maybe joining that group ride. All are welcome, the ride usually starts about 10:30. I need to be back for an early Thanksgiving Feast with my side of the family this afternoon. Have fun everyone.

Hey guys...
If any of you inmates get out on the big bikes ride up to Orange VA. Brenda is going to jump around noon. Would love to get in a ride in after she/we jumps. I will have my phone with me. Its a beautiful day in Orange VA. Please show her some support. For goodness sake she is jumping out of a perfectly good airplane!

Im leaving the house around 10 to slowly make my way up and around Lake Anna then over to Orange.

Dan .... if we get back earlier than expected Forest Hill sounds good to me. If not today Im up for it anytime tomorrow. Lets stay in touch.

So I beelined to Orange, but as an alt to 64/15/20, I took the following route that I would be happy to repeat on a bike: 64 W to 208/Courthouse Rd N to 33 W briefly in Louisa to Ellisville Dr / 669 N to Monrovia / 612 W to 20 N the last 3 or so miles.

Chuck, good grief, I launched off a perfectly good ski run with a paraglider on my back without a whole bunch of cheerleaders ...it was simply way too fun to miss out on! :) Will send you a note when a rough jump time is established.

Wish I could have helped...Have 25 people showing up at the house this week and the washing machine took a $hiet yesterday. Guess I know where I am heading today, and not on the bike.
