Thanks!
I have 3 load testers, and frequently load-test batteries. It's not really possible to load-test a battery
that is not near full charge, or will not accept a charge.... Any 12 volt battery that shows voltage of 12.0 or less
is "dead" for all practical purposes.

I'm heading out to the Bike Bash 2011 at the Dinwiddie drag strip with my boy. In addition to the drag racing, they have stunt shows, car/bike contests, top fuel motrocycles that will go over 220 mph (at 2:30 and 5:00 I think) food and fun. Should be a good dose of testosterone for my boy. $20 adults, under 12 free.

Get together Boyer Station 15-17 Jul

Posting this for the Richmind folks that might not read the Hampton Roads board.

Paul and I wanted to have a get together in WV somewhere, decided to head up to Boyer Station for the weekend (15-17 Jul), no frills, ride your own ride, but camp out together. No dual sport,, he'll be on a VFR and I'll be on a Connie.

Saw that Tommy, and trying to finagle the schedule so I might be able to get there. Simply too much "stuff" going on right now - but - I'll let you know if I can make it.

ADV Get together!

Alright, it sounds like Sunday works for a few people at least.

Sunday, July 17th - 1:00 PM
ADV Tacos Verde Get-together

2135 Megan Drive. Glen Allen, VA 23060
37.656728,-77.477034

Come one, come all.... just let me know if you are indeed coming so I can get a rough count. If it's hot, humid and nasty outside I'll try to have some moto-tainment for us inside.

Hope ya'll can make it.

Glad to hear you're coming. I have no preference on a side dish.. maybe some sort of rice?

Eddy's GS Challenge

Could either of the people who had GPS running on the 2nd tell me if this is anything close to the route we took? I pieced together this map from memory and the short time I had my GPS on. I did learn how to get my previously traveled routes into Google maps.

Oh, and if I manage to get up at a decent time, I might make it to Poe's.

that section looks correct...preserved so you can run the Wee right back in there i suppose. you might want to mention the gate at the bottom and "private road" sign. would have been real interesting if we had to turn around and ride back up just to get out. actually, the variety of bikes did pretty well on that road considering they weren't designed for it.

my GPS should have the track from the entire day. never tried to download to Google Maps, how do you go about it?
