    Poor you going up to NY. I was wondering where you were at. Come on out next time for sure. Bring your "cousins" if they're up for it. I did the NJ ride, had a blast.

    I'm riding up to DC tomorrow...

    anyone have suggested routes or roads to avoid? Right now I'm taking 29n to 28 to 50.

    And believe me, I'd avoid 29 if i could! :lol3

    I've never ridden it, but--taking Rt 20 north to Orange, and then 15 north to Culpeper, would at least avoid some of the worst of 29, and only leave you with a bit of 29 before 28. Not that 28 is ideal on a busy day, but I guess you don't want to end up on I-66 on a 250....

    Or, if you have time, from Orange instead of 15 you could take 615 (Rapidan Road) to 522 north to 3 west to 29 in Culpeper. 615 is a nice route, but I don't know about 522.

    Dinner - I would be interested in meeting for a dinner/ride somewhere near C-ville. With the days getting shorter and sunset before 6:30, the sooner the better.


    Mathias - lets go for a ride, check out the ninja250 site. Goldfinch from Lexington has a yellow 06', we should get a group shot :) Check out Mike's Touring Windscreen

    Hey guys - just got back from 2 weeks in Spain and Portugal - very happy to see (feel?) that it's still warm in Cville!

    I guess Hardy is on the TAT somewhere freezing his ass off on that KTM - anyone hear from him yet?

    If anyone wants to ride/meet/get a bite to eat, gimme a shout

    I'm taking a ride up to D.C. after work today if anyone is heading that direction looking for some company.

    I head up there to see the lady friend about every other weekend, so the offer is almost always on the table. Just stinks that now it is dark around Madison/ Culpepper.

    also, I work at Gropen on Market, so meeting at Belmont BBQ should be a tradition!

    Cool. Aren't you closer to Jinx's PitsTop?

    I'm usually either on Preston Avenue or on University Avenue.

    Yep, I'm about a 3 wood away from jinx. I've been getting a little addicted to the hot sauce at Belmont though.

    Another Cville BBQ meetup locale though.

    Just digging out guys, and would love to meet for a little Belmont, whether it be lunch or dinner. Wednesday sounds good, Fox - who else is in? Flash?

    We usually do 1PM.

    Guy's I'm sorry to say I won't be able to make it unless we switch this to friday 2PM. :(

    Got to do a quick 2 day run up to NYC.

    We'll have to do it again soon. Gas I wanted to hear some of your Europe stories. I heard from Hardy, he's doing good out on the trail.

    Someone who is actually going confirm a time so that the lurkers and last minute people know when to come if you are still going out to lunch tomorrow.
