    Rob, if you are coming from Haymarket, try hooking up with these guys somewhere along the route as they will be the closest riders to you heading to the RTE...

    Look at post 1447

    Or...post in the thread Wayne linked and ask about the riding plans for the inmates coming out from the big city.

    I didn't make through Afton last night. Ended up leaving a little later and didn't feel like trying it in the dark, especially since I didn't know what I would find.

    Here's the event which preceded the phone call to Blaster:

    Water doesn't look terribly deep from the video, but it was about 6" over the cylinders on the GS. Only problem is that the air intake is about 3" over the cylinders. Oops. At least it was December. It took Matt and I more than a few minutes to drag that heavy pig out of the soft bottom, frigid creek. Thanks to the kindness of a good samaritan we were able to drain the oil and put in fresh stuff to get home. At night. While soaked. In December. Twas a nice cold 2 hour ride home.

    If we can't come up with another ride (and I'm useless at this point), I'll probably skip out on the Saturday ride and try hitting the RTE instead on Sunday afternoon.

    I'm itching for some dirt though...

    just in case anyone else was planning on meeting this morning, most of us are out or doing our own thing.

    Enjoy the warm weather!!

    Banshee and I are still hitting the skyline cafe near log cabin on 33 at 545 or 6 tonight for a little B day dinner.

    Spent the whole day cleaning bikes and sprucing up the garage. I think I got a sun burn. Ain't it great?

    Ecubed and I were going to cage it down. He just called and said he wouldn't be able to make it.
    I'm leaning that direction now as well. I have a couple projects I really need to finish up.
    I'll see you all in Marshall tomorrow.


    Happy Birthday Banshee!!!
