Here are a couple snags from today's video
(eventually I'll get a computer that lets me actually edit videos)

For Father's day, my oldest gave me one of the gopro chest mounts. I like the video from that mount better than the helmet mount.

This was one of the few times I saw JRNasty...(when he was waiting for me to catch up )



This was one of the other times...quite the graceful lay down



He wasn't the only one...

I ended up in the brush once



And dinged up the tail light dropping it after I clipped a tree with the handguard..



for a little 2 mph drop...it did enough damage



Not sure what it was today...no mojo or just off my game, but it kicked my ass today.
Shoulders are still a bit stiff.
Hoping to get out there again Monday morning....we'll see

Blaster, Thank you for the info. I won't make kickstand-up-time, but I appreciate the invite. Maybe I will see y'all out and about.

Cheers.

Day Trippin' to Michaux

Apparently, the theme of the day was "those that ride BLUE bikes".

Blaster:


KeithMcKenny


Porcupine


Billy


Meh, Yellow is fastest (and I sold my only blue bike last week...)


Water Crossing:
Billy Diving in!


Keith


Bravo on the save


Lil pit stop at Fort Ritchie








Dream a little dream at High Rock




Apparently, quite a few novice hang gliders don't "glide" so well off here..








About High Rock:
39.69599N / 77.51333W (End of Penn Marr High Rock Rd, Cascade, MD)
The Appalachian Trail will cross the road
Quote:
an opportunity to generate traffic and place western Maryland in the resort business, the railroad built a wooden observation tower in 1879. According the brochure, you could see 2000 square miles on a clear day
Riders Up!
Billy


Porcupine


Keith


Overall, I busted the lunch stop. There was no food there, however, never a worry. We went around the corner to the store serving the camp ground. There we watched a guy that had been hoofing the Appalachian trail since April eat and entire 1/2 gallon of ice cream while we waited for our burgers. He says he's gotten faster since he started, and now closes 20 miles in under 4 hrs

The track was fab (A big thanks to Lisa and Lakota). I think I might try to tweak the homeward bound track. Gettysburg was a complete zoo!

Aside from a passing shower on the trek home, the weather was absolutely B.E.A.U.T.I.F.U.L!!


PS I hear that Porcupine has a 100 mile dirt trek around Leesburg that maybe we can get him to lead us on

PPS GPX can be downloaded from "GPX Tracks Northeast, Southeast, FL"

excellent day!

Thanks to whoever put together the route,
Thanks to those that were able to follow it, mostly,
and thanks those that joined the ride.
That route is on the short list for re-riding in the fall.

Things we learned today...

One of the riders may have the BEST real estate negotiator EVER.

You really can stop and put on your raingear before it rains, really!

Gettysburg is a jammed up as you can imagine on a summers day.

Oh and check both the emails before riding. Sorry Gastone.

Excellent ride
Looking forward to the next one and my neighborhood rides should be on the list.

Ed

Dana, I was going to try and make it. Pm'ed Ed and told him I'd meet up with him this morning... then I didn't even leave the house. Painting and such for company next week.

Great Pics!

That looked like a great ride! Wish I could have made it...my Blue Tenere would have fit in perfectly.

Cheers

Super bummer. Hope most of the paint is on the walls and the dogs don't have zebra stripes

Fireside Chat with a top 10 Iron Butt Rally Rider!

Normally, we'd probably together over some fine food and celebrate. However, about 2200 miles sparates us geographically. So well do the next best thing! We are going to model this event after the series of thirty evening radio addresses given by United States President Franklin D. Roosevelt between 1933 and 1944. However, since this is the 21st century, we'll be using a modern teleconference system to get everyone together.

As this is a motorcycle forum, we'll tweak the agenda a bit from FDRs. Our guest speaker will be RFlagg42. He recently finished the biannual Iron Butt Rally (long distance riding) with 11,166 miles in 11 days for his prestigious 7th place finish . RFlagg42 has numerous other long distance rally finishes in 2012/2013 and he has extensively participated in the majority of east coast rallys.

In this fireside chat, we'll have some agenda items that RFlagg42 will be prepared to talk about. Feel free to post us any suggestions that you have or want to know about.

What: Fireside Chat with Rflagg42 on Long Distance Rallys
When: Either Sun 11 or 18 August
Time: 5PM EDT, duration about 1 hour.
Rendezvous Point: I will send you a PM which contains a conference call in number and passcode. The conference line can accommodate 250 people. You will be responsible for any long distance charges accrued on your telephone.
Agenda: Here's a first throw at a dart board for some talking areas:
  1. Of all the long distance rallys, which one have you enjoyed riding the most? Why? Which long distance rally do you recommend for a n00b?
  2. Can you briefly explain how you chose your routes? What is the methodology? What sort of time factors (e.g. rest stops, gas stops, traffic, etc) do you use to plan into your routes?
  3. Describe the method you use to correlate the bonus points to the GPX tracks
  4. Have you done any mods to your bike specifically for the rallys?
  5. What is the biggest point pitfalls? Have any anecdotal stories of "what not to do?"
  6. What is a ball park cost estimate you use for participating in a rally (entry fee, gas, hotels, etc)?
Audience: Long distance n00b riders or those interested in doing so

In:
Blaster
Dorito

Please let me know which date you prefer and if you have other agenda topics when responding.

That is a slick looking blue KTM. I have never seen one that color.
