I see the Continental divide trip on your calendar and would love to join in. My KTM 690 burned to the ground in the Utah desert last June so I need to give it another shot. My background is road racing but I love the dirt. I would say I'm only an average dirt rider and stay away from the nasty single track as my 50 year old bones don't hold up the way they used to. Thinking about Buds creek this weekend. to watch, not race

Hope to hook up with some of you soon

Don
Welcome Don. Initiation involves you handing over the keys to the MS... just so I can make sure it's SMAR worthy. You can thank me later.

Don,

Rule number 1 and a very important one....never take ANYTHING gastone says seriously! You should give the keys to me.

I completely understand why. Is it doing second gear wheelies on a borrowed bike?

At least I didn't call you at the hotel for a wake up call.

I thought that was a requirement when riding a borrowed bike

Oh stop it now

I can see I'm going like you guys already. As soon as I verify your account balances you are welcome to take the Duc out for a blast. You couldn't ride it any harder than I do. FYI The second gear wheelies are better while standing. When my 690 burned my buddy was riding it. He felt bad.

Please extend me the same courtesy and take my posts with a grain of salt.......and a shot of tequila, then lime, but only with the cheap tequila. The good stuff requires none of that. I barely recall drinking homemade tequila from old wine bottles at Mikes Sky Ranch in Baja Mexico, but I digress.

I suddenly feel like a margarita. Anyone know the Cats eye pub in fells point ? My favorite dive bar. Used to be a biker bar back in the day from what I'm told. Live Blues every day of the year. Saturday afternoon around 4 is a good time to stop in for music and a drink after a day in the saddle. Or now for that matter. Hot one today.

Ride this weekend ?

So, what good will it be to verify the accounts are at $0? Couldn't we just tell you that now and forgo the formality?

ride today

Had a great ride today! down to Sperryville VA had lunch. It was raining south so. we headed north on Skyline Drive to beat the rain. Temp dropped to 67f (had to stop and change jackets). Took backroads from from Front Royal to Whites Ferry. Hit the Beltway for a little bit,too much traffic, Jumped off took more backs roads to Governors Bridge Rd. then home. 347 miles no offroad. My riding buddy was on a 1800 Wing. I am off on mondays. If I am not out sailing I am out riding. If anyone would like to ride or sail let me know.

From the looks of the Spotwalla page Rflag is in Florida. I'm still trying to figure out a good time to do a ride to mile 1.
