Good to see you've been out riding! I'm looking forward to this winter down there. I put an FCR on my DRZ and it's ready to fly!

Photos

So, you want pictures. (Without pictures, it didn't happen!)
This is along US58.

One of our machines.This is our campsite at Willeville, a motorcycle campground off the Blue Ridge Parkway at Meadows of Dan. We had the place to ourselves.

Tommy and his machine. Ridden up to Virginia from South Florida.

Sunset in Meadows of Dan, VA.

An old mill we stumbled upon looking for my lost tools!

One of our side tracks.

Tommy at a lookout point.

The view from the top of Bear Mountain

Tommy, taking in the view.

It was well worth the hike up here.

Huge rock!

Jungle Tommy!

The swing worked!

This was one of our roughest rides. Broke the shifter here.

These are for Steve!

Those pictures are great. Tommy was telling how nice it was up there and how much fun he had.

I was wanting to ride up there this weekend but I couldn't find a cheap rack or a way to pack luggage. I decided to use my vacation time to finish up my jeep instead.

Thanks again guys for waiting around while we figured out what to do with my bike. thanks to Steve for bringing out that stuff, i can't believe that it held. a stick of that will be in my backpack for now on.

i had a great day other than the whole crash thing. after following Rob back to his house we took his new Jeep to see how she'd do..... damn thing is unstoppable. then he jumped on his bike and we rode out to his sister's house for dinner.

i'm feeling pretty sore, and i'm sure tomorrow is going to be way worse.

here's the pictures from today... i only have two from the ride.

Ermin trying to pump up his tire:


break time:


Rob and i Jeepin:


Mudding:


Trail:


thanks again everyone for your help and patience. Ermin post up that video!

I lost it in a turn and fell. It wasn't anything too bad, except for the broken clutch cover, bent peg and a little soreness.

Check out my Facebook page for the video.

It was a wet day but a good time as always. I ate it twice later in the day Alex. My shoulder is still feelin it too. Kyle I fell in some pretty deep water that completely submerged me and the bike.. I was water logged first few minutes of our ride lol.

i finally got around to fixing the damage from the crash. it was worse than i thought.



she looks good now though.


i haven't fixed the carb yet cause i've been focused on my Jeep.... something is up with the clutch and i have just been finishing up little things to make it "right". next is welding in floor patches so who knows when i'll fix my accelerator pump.

who wants to meet up thursday night? Tommy, John, anyone else?
