    Why don't you come down to Poonfest II and hook up with the gang there? We'll be riding out on Sunday to points unknown.

    Guys - please post place / time for Sunday. I'm going to start the day with a short ride with other folks with antique bikes, but by 11AM that will be done. I was thinking about heading out RT 9, and riding south on the roads just this side of the Shenandoah.

    Well, we could go down to Poonville (AKA Charlottesville, VA) and meet up with Advriders down there. It's 1.5 hours from DC.

    OR, we could just get a DC group and go from this area west to some yet-to-be named twisties West of Harpers Ferry or thereabouts. It'd cut out a couple of hours of a "commute" to Poonville, but fewer Advriders... so less cool in that respect.

    I'm leaning toward hanging more locally but would be up for a Poonville trip as well.

    How about meeting at Point of Rocks, MD, then heading out to Berkley Springs and Paw Paw?

    Or, riding around fredericksburg, VA.

    Or, riding up to northern, MD. THurmont.

    Tons of choices

    :D

    Sounds good options to consider- when and where exactly? I might be up to it- havent made up my mind as to when and where I want to ride.
    Thanks

    Hey SM, I really don't know what the plan for Sunday is. I have obligations after 2:30 so it will be a short day for me.

    Crap !

    I'm taking my wife to B&B in Charlottesville for her birfday this weekend. You guys have fun. Lets all get together and put names to faces for the East Coast forum for the "near D.C." types.

    OK, so it looks like Sunday Poon activities are going to be short, so I'm sticking closer to DC.

    Here's the scoop: Meet at Mountain View Diner in Frederick, MD Sunday at 9:00am sharp for a quick breakfast and decide where to go from there. Directions/address of diner on their Web site www.mountainviewdiner.com

    Who's in? Scorch? Ishai? Jarvis? Kleponis? Ron? Etc? PM me for my cell no. and let me know if you're in.
