    I came across this when doing some research on a spring DS ride......
    Have you ever come across it in your travels?

    "this" is actually a road he is not supposed to talk about :deal

    The southern side has a private road sign (placed confusing on purpose), and crosses private property with an easement. The northern side is a bit more "official" :lol3

    Hi Cuttle-we met and had a few beers at Joe's place a couple years back at the Wha Da Hala rally....hope your well.
    So the dates we are riding around that area will be May 16-18 if anyone wants to give us a tour of the said "road".
    Thanks, BOIKE

    Hi Boike!

    I'd love to give you a tour (it's just a few miles up the road from me), but I am quiet busy with the RDV at this weekend:

    Rick's Eastern Rendezvous - you should come too!

    I usually work all weekends, holidays and whenever good shit happens so I didn't even think of checking the date.......woohoo I'll check it out the RDV site!

    thanks for the heads up....

    Winter came back and made us all sad :bluduh but Spring has reappeared for the afternoon. :flug


    Short spin after work today to grab the last of the blooming trees before the thunderstorms knock them all off this weekend.

    It was in the 20s the past two mornings so the grass is all dormant....could be a problem for some peach orchards too.















    It's not easy to be the only trespasser in this driveway on a sunny Spring afternoon.

    It may be awhile before I have a chance to ride again. :dunno Still hoping to hit the Old's Cool in April for a night or two and of course the RDV in May but I don't know if I'll get a chance to do any new scouting for it or not beforehand. :patch All is well, just have to catch up on some things around home that are unfortunately gonna need fixing sooner than later.

    Sorry to hear you aren't going to be riding as much. Looking forward to seeing you at RDV
