I have a free pass for tomorrow and am heading toward danville in the am if anybody is down to ride. I'm sure the rainstorm tonight lubed things up.

Tar Hollar Ride

I want to reserve Big Ohio tomorrow as my personal 'bike extractor'.
He's big, strong and since he rolls around in the dirt so much, I'm assuming he likes dirt.
I'll only need him below 1050' of elevation. Above that, he's a free agent.

Luke, you had him to yourself last week so you'll need to wait your turn.

Steve, I'm planning on a light-duty day for you - no overtime.

See you in the a.m.

Since this sounds like a big bike ride, I'm planning on riding the F8GS down for some fun.

How do you like your fork swap so far? I still haven't decided what I want to do with the forks on mine.

Almost packed and ready to go but I have to tell you I'm feeling a little dainty this weekend so nothing over knee deep! Also, riding the small bike so I hope I don't hold everyone up...

I'm riding a 450, Steve rides a 520. I'm not sure what you consider a big bike. I do expect mud and some water - and not much road.

The more the merrier. See you there.


Steve - I'll bring some extra tampons - we'll be good.
We'll let Luke lead into the depths if there are any, and then make a decision.

It feels a bunch better, but I'm not sure it's completely dialed in yet. First DS ride on the forks last fall led to dented a rim and bashplate. Forks were soaking up stuff real nice, they just weren't resisting bottoming out ... at all.

I've reduced the air gap to 100mm from 130mm so we'll see how it does tomorrow.

Smoke if you got'em. See you there.
I thought I read that Luke was bringin' the 950 ...

I'm pretty sure I can go where that thing goes.

He did say that originally, but he just posted that he's bringing the little bike.

Musta changed his mind.

I may show up. Unknown at this time.

Ok, I'll see you guys tomorrow too. I'm shooting for 10am arrival time so Luke does leave me behind! ;)

I'm bringing the WRR and don't like to go above 45 mph on asphalt because I don't want to burn up my tars.

No, I'm bringing the 950se. Don't remember saying I was bringing the little bike as I don't have any little bikes.
