Sounds like Skippi, did it have a front fender?

Was it this guy, wearing a red Areostich? If so, be careful, I hear that guy's a jerk.



Was that you on the Honda wiht the white helmet? I couldn't see what model it was--guess that's the Superhawk? I like the way your headlight seems to project a line on the road directly underneath you bike!
I thought your license plate looked familiar, was wondering if I'd seen it in some pics here.

Ride safe, guys!
Been a big accident in Chesterfield every day lately. A person wrecked coming out of the parking lot of my work last night. I didn't see it, but it was apparently pretty bad. Don't know if he survided.
Day before, another guy hit a tree on Nash Rd. Dead on scene.
Day before that, another guy hit a dump truck on Chester Rd, I heard he's doing okay.

Had a 24 hour shift yesterday and a full workday today, you'll have to wait until tonight to see the full truth of the Goat Trail Mysteries.

Skippii, In the future please always place the letter "A" in front of the word "Guy" when speaking of a horrible crash...you scared me into thinking that our, soon to be retired, friend was hurt!

I really do hate to hear about so many crashes occuring...Crazy traffic? Drinking? Drugs? Poor judgement? Poor skills? Too much testosterone? Distracted moms in minivans? It's all scary and 3615 dead riders in 2010, Jimmy and the other accidents you listed makes me question the insanity of it all every so often...
http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/List_of_motorcycle_deaths_in_U.S._by_year

I really hate it when I get spooked...last time this happened, I went out and bought a convertible BMW. Who wants to go ride west on Sunday after church?

Good point. Fixed.

As for the cause, I have no idea about any of them. Forensics or investigation teams were outside our building for a few hours, so I guess they'll figure something out.

The day before, the report said it was a single vehicle accident

Yeah, saw that. Incredible that total strangers would step into help, even with the fire.

Perhaps there is hope for "us" after all.

Couple pics from the COG Ride in WV

http://roger123.smugmug.com/Other/Se...8980966_wBZzCL

Having problems with Vimeo, I uploaded a few videos but exceeded my limit, so I need to figure out what to do. I don't like YouTube as it blocked at work and it uses flash therefore all videos don't play on Apple mobile devices.

Thanks Roger. Looks like they've really worked on the FRs up on Sods. Last time I was up there they were nothing but rutty, muddy, trails that were slicker than whale snot.

Glad to see that ya'll made it back safe and sound.

Tommy, ya'll go up on the west side (historically the worst and accessible from 32), or the east side?

The east side is usually better maintained. I have been up the west side at times when it was akin to a PA Hillclimb with more rocks. Suspension shudders would loosen your eyeteeth... especially on a Connie. Regardless, looks like ya'll were having fun, and that's what is all about.

Guy, come on now, do you think we would do anything half assed like only use one of the roads?! We did get lucky though and go UP the smooth side and DOWN the rougher side. Only had to pass two Jeeps!
