Ss1000

Count me in on the SS1000. Not sure which bike I will use but Im still interested.

In regards to riding on Saturday. Im leaving Richmond fairly early taking 64W to 250 west to 220 north out of Monterey. From there I will be exploring northern WV until I get into PA. The wife the running a marathon in Pittsburgh on Sunday.
If anyone would like to ride along let me know. Feel free to turn back at any time. Around 350 miles from RIC to PIT.

A 20 hour high-speed slab fest? Pain, fatigue, suffering, flat spots on my tires.. Where do I sign!

I want to do a SS1000 sometime this year as well...either before or after Jul-Aug. We'll talk, Chuck wants in too.
Nice camp. Was there many times when my girls were in Scouts.

Submitted for your approval. The latest addition to the Classic Bike Pool Hall and Garage. A 996S. #330 of 500 produced.



Sure it's on loan, but that doesn't mean it won't get a parking place of honor in the CBPH. Just rev'ing the engine would give a dead man a woody.

Gorgeous... Love the sound of those engines.

let me know if you need a starting witness, Since I've got a SS1000, I know the drill. document, document, document and more document keep the route as simple as possible.

and give me some heads up on when you'll be starting. I've received e-mails the night before, 1 and 2 days prior, and it's like WTF?

proper planning prevents piss poor performance, don't for get the P's

Any rides planned for Saturday? I'd prefer street/gravel over trails as I will probably ride the DL.
Is it Hatton Ferry time?

Now there is an idea! I remember a couple years ago when it was supposed to close and we tried like 6 weekends in a row and it was closed every time because the river was too low. What time and where you want to start?

This MD used to be East of 95 but is now in Farmville. He was my Ortho Doc when I had a titanium rod inserted in my tibia in 2005.
