I am planning on riding Thanksgiving day either out of Harrisonburg or Strasburg. I can meet someone at either location and do a 100 mile ride or so on the paved roads of the county. Anyone interested?

50 degrees, partly sunny, and a holiday...can't beat that. I'm up for a couple of hours sometime around 2pm 'ish (5 o'clock dinner). Probably stay in the Augusta/Nelson Co. Give a holler if you want to ride.

I'm going for a ride tomorrow from Dinwiddie to somewhere. Maybe I will see some of you all up there. I plan on being on the blue SV650S but might take the DRZ400E up to the Robert E Lee Wayside off RT 60.

Coffeytown Rd.

Anyone been up to Hog Camp Gap. Nice dual sport riding off Coffeytown Rd.
The bald mountain tops make for spectacular vistas. But you have to get off the bike and hike.

T-day Ride

Got out and rode yesterday...just long enough to clear my head. Did some BRP and found a little dirt. Looking forward to connecting with Henecton and the rest of you in the future. I'd post the pics, but apparently we have disk space issues. Mebee later

We need to do another tech day.

I need to check my valves (they're almost 4,000 miles past due!), put on a new tire (also past due), install raising links, and clean the air filter.
We can do it at my place, but it will be cold.

Worst case scenario, we split it up and do Wed, Thurs, Friday at noon for one hour a day.

Does the garage door close? Does it have lectericity or could we run a long extension cord to a small heater?

Um...haven't you been here? Helping me use an air compressor under the garage lights while listening to the radio?
Yes, it has electricity, and yes, the door closes.

What he is leaving out that being it is the "Valley" there are three squirrels chained to an excercise wheel powering a generator out back.....
