    Sounds like a plan.

    One warning, the boys go down for their naps at 1pm we don't have to be done by then, just lower the volume or deal with one angry Momma.

    I'll pm my address, everyone is welcome.

    OK, I'm going to get some header wrap for my new-to-me GPS so the kickass routes I put in it won't burn my fingers.:D

    Don't worry Grimmy, I have no intention of putting any ugly wrap on the the outside of my pretty pipes. The Ducati ('06 Multistrada) has a couple of slip joints in the exhaust system. The stock gaskets don't last or work worth a crap. I am going to use the wrap in the slip joints. I've already had some success with wire wrapped steel wool - I was thinking the header wrap stuff might be better than the steel wool.

    Myself and one or two others will be doing the Sherando/Coal Rd./jeep trail/Montebello loop on Sunday. We'll be at Afton between 12:30 and 12:45.

    Anyone else want to come along?

    Hey all,

    Big thank you to Bowtie76 and XCRider. You guys taught me a lot today, and helped me get a new tire and chain installed.

    I wish I would have known I needed new sprockets before today, but oh well, I'll them ordered this week, and installed before I ride very much further.

    Also, thanks VABuckaroo for the Heidenau recommendation, did great its first 130 miles on pavement, gravel, and dirt/mud.

    Also, the purchase from Rocky Mount http://www.rockymountainatvmc.com/ was a great experience, I recommend them, good service, fast shipping, easily trackable, better than expected.

    Overall a great day,
    Thanks again.

    J.R.

    No problem JR, happy to help out. Give me (us?) a shout when you get the sprockets in if you want a hand replacing them, or just someone to watch you & drink beer while you do the work! :D

    Anyone familiar with Horseshoe Flats Campground in Scottsville? I just found it on the map and thinking about trying it out on an overnight trip soon.
    Thanks.
