It can be done two-up. I wait at turns for the group to catch up.

I only have a few basic ride rules.
1- Ride YOUR ride at YOUR pace.
2- Don't leave the ride without letting some one know.
3- Ride YOUR ride at YOUR pace.
4- I wait at turns for the group to catch up.
5- Did I mention -- Ride YOUR ride at YOUR pace.
I can get around 140-150 including reserve. Truthfully, it does sound like a lot of riding for me. I got no problems staying in and drinking/playing guitar.

Speaking of which, I think I might take one of you guitar donors up on that for ease, if it's no big deal.

It IS! Especially with a group of mixed abilities that doesn't know the area.

A handful of riders that share a similar style and it's a piece of cake, it helps to have a flexible route for group rally rides...DAMHIK

It's why we're leaving early. If it were up to Backwoods we'd be hitting the road about 7:30. That's when he showed up at my house last week for a 9:00 departure time anyway.

We have twelve rides lined up for this year.

See post #4 on page one for times and places of departure.

Please print out a copy so many people will have the information on them, and can help those who don't.

Thanx

I'll be doing this loop on Fri leaving at 830am (no idea where lunch will be at this time). I will be riding a Yamaha FZ1 so this is a 100% street Ride.

Might be interested in this one,if not Bob - depends on how many riders... I may have to leave Saturday so a nice long twisty ride would be nice... My range is 180-200 miles.

Bar-b-que

Ridgewood Barbecue
900 Elizabethton Highway, Bluff City, TN (86 miles from Laurel Springs NC)

Hours:Monday-Thursday 11:00-7:30 Friday & Saturday 11:00-2:30 & 4:30-8:30 Closed Sunday
This is some of the BEST bar-b-que in the south, but its not in NC. It will be worth the ride and I can show you on the map, some good roads to get you there. All Paved or a combination of some big bike friendly forest roads.

I'd say just call 'em up and and have them "transfer" the money to Woody's (or write you a receipt) - and keep me posted if there are any issues.
