Looks like it's gonna be clear and sunny tomorrow so I'll most likely try and ride somewhere up this way. Will try and post again tonight when I know a little more, but you're welcome to tag along with me and anybody else I can round up if possible...

Barry and Kevin,
Post up where you're going to be riding so I can tag along if I am able.
I have been up working on the KLR into the wee hours of the night.

I'd say so if you're posting this at 4:18am! Man, what were you doing to it...a complete rebuild?! I haven't talked to anybody else as of yet so I'll be making a few calls to see who I can round up this morning.

I also have to get to the shop and finish up my handlebar installation before I can go anywhere. I mainly just need to adjust and tighten everything down...I hope. "I hope" being the key words there. Seems like every time I work on my own bikes there's always something that goes wrong and takes longer than expected.

Anyway, I got your # so I'll call or post more on here when I know what's going on...

Yeah, knowing us it will be a little later than 10 when we actually leave. More like 10:15-10:30 range.

So, I am leaving in about 5 minutes, takes me about 40-45 mins to get to the shop. If you leave before I get there just give me a heads up by phone what direction to head and maybe I'll see you

Monday Ride, May 12th



Anybody still interested in a FR type D/S ride?

Just another heads up as it looks like it's gonna be a great day. Rain Sunday will have the FRs looking real good on Monday, which is forecast to be sunny and cool.

If you head out and miss a meeting spot....click the links below for our likely route......it should be easy to see fresh tracks if you're trying to chase us down. (to know wether to wait or run)

Meeting spots and route

9am Texaco in Fallston (hwy 18)

zig zag some back roads past South Mtn maybe visit an old fire tower and continue up past Lake James to Old NC 105 up the west side of the Linnville Gorge maybe explore a spur road if it's open. Then stop for lunch and give others a chance to meet up. LINK

12noon Famous Louises for lunch

then head down toward Wilson Creek (rte very flexible) maybe run FR192 and Maple Sally and whatever else is in between or that time allows. Then to the next meeting spot. part1 LINK part2 LINK(map doesn't show Maple Sally as through, but it is)

4:15pm at the gas station in Collettesville

route after that point TBD

All are welcome to join in or split away at any point you wish...maybe we'll see ya Monday.
