    There's a Sheetz at 3 & 20 now? Wow, i guess it's been a long time since I conjured another route. It was fine a couple-three decades ago, then it got too congested for my liking so through the back country it became.

    Yikes! I just realized I had my intersections discombobulated. I was picturing 33 & 20. :baldy
    I know the Sheetz at 3 & 20. All that went in long after i went to Germanna. Though now i bypass that corner using the road behind LOW.

    Good thing I wasn't going out to ride with Buckee! That could'a been a long wait.

    You missed a good day, rode lots of Madison dirt & gravel before flushing out the knobs in Hughes River then heading up the mountain to Rapidan WMA. Ever have a bad day fishing and wonder what's killed all the fish? It was like that all over Madison, swear I only saw 1 or 2 vehicles on the back roads & trails, like everybody was at church all day long. How bizarre, how bizarre.

    So lonely the DR fell asleep on Blakey Ridge - no harm done but thinking that particular trail's not for soloing anymore. One of those "this tragedy could have been prevented with a brain" revelations as the beast back came up at the edge of the abyss...

    Just a great day!

    Sounds great, and as said before I'd like to explore that area, just tied up. When you posted up I thought there's an opportunity I'm forced to miss.

    Dan, did you have a DRZ for sale? I've got a buddy recently looking. His DR was stolen last night in DC. Second time in 4 years. Previous bike was a 990.

    What year?

    If it's a 2003 or newer with a hydraulic clutch, you need the clutch lever from these guys.

    It'll be the best $70 you'll ever spent on the bike.

    Mine is a 2002, but the previous owner installed a hydraulic conversion.

    Hey, does your front wheel have a 17mm axle and a cable driven speedo? If so I might have a spare front wheel for your bike if interested.

    Will do. We are leaving Ruther Glen (gassing up) about 9am, then heading to the newtown rd/360 intersection to ride 14 down to Dragonville SF area and then back north, so we will hit stumptown at the end. Anyone wants to join you can meet us @ruther glen Mr Fuel about 0930.
