    Makes three rides that weekend that I could do.

    A British bike ride, TSMR from Britbike.com, Armenia DS and Rick's.
    Cant be everywhere at once!

    Armenia it will be for me, but I'll make it to the others someday.

    Brit guys ride some pretty cool stuff for pavement.
    At any given stop, you're more likely to run into boiled peanuts than frappucino.

    Never forget riding 42 miles of BRP in a conga line with visability ending at about 25ft...

    {looking at lighting by Lucas...}
    I have never been more worn. not even on an Iron Butt attempt.

    Great bunch too!
    Bluegrass music live {riders!} under the gazebo at the hotel.
    Jars sometimes appear...
    Good people, good times.

    You know what makes you scream when you ride The Snake {Hwy 421 NC} with british bikes on wet roads while on a 400cc DS bike with soft terrain DOT knobbies?

    Dodging the pacman trail of shimmering drops of oil!
    LOL!

    It’ll be fun, fer-sher. Lies will be told and excessive quantities of adult beverages will be consumed. Throw in a bunch of ill mannered l, smelly motorcycle riders and what could possibly go wrong?

    It would be nice if Highpower90 and/or Hangingdoghillbilly could help out with guide services too. I know most, but they know all in that area.

    Wouldn’t take much to get me to do some guiding in that rocky, up high area.
