YES! I want to go! Anybody else want in? It will be full by Sunday morning!

Of course, we could round up some Richmond ADV'ers and have our own overnight camping trip somewhere else for a lot less than $135/person! I would prefer this!

Patch Us In

Brenda was lamenting today that we don't have a cool name and a patch/decal. SMIBs, Cat Herders, BWDR, etc. And we got nutin'. :-) Any graphics artists/marketeers among us wanna come up with our own cool logo? Make the rest of the area drool with envy?

Maybe whatever name Guy comes up with for the lunch gang? (No pressure, Guy, but the name needs to be great. LOL)

I'm sorry but, I have paid for the S500 many times in the past....I joined the AMA just to participate....the price this year is just too much for me....let the out of town-ers pay to play, a majority of those roads are open to the public plus, I know locals which can guide me to bigger & better and less crowded..............that being said, if you've never been go for it!
It will introduce you to a great bunch of riders and some awesome terrain...it is just a been there, done that, for me...

The cat herders camp out took me to Long run rd & Vepco Rd this past weekend.....pic from the S500 2010....rode the 990....same place no price....

I wanted to do the 500 this year and then a family obligation in the form of wedding type activities filled that date. But I'd go back and ride those roads the 500 takes in. I think I can find most of them.

Actually I'm riding the 990 out that way this morning. The is a bicycle race in the Mt. Solon area and some friends wanted help running a relief station. Apparently we are camping at the old C and W Stokesville depot right there by the iron bridge over the river. Should be fun.

Bill Robinson was from Richmond, but not sure of your reference to Raggedy Man.

I love love love the Croaker Spot.. I'm in!

I've never been, but always hear poor reviews of Byrams (under both old and new management)

I found my nut. My wife had it the whole time! No.. The zip tie worked until I got home and found a new one. I was thinking though.. Why didn't I just remove part of the assembly on that side before riding away? It doesn't really do anything once the axle is tight.
