    What's the agenda?

    I have to cage it to Bedford in the afternoon, but might be able to work in a ride. It's a longshot, but I might be able to do it.

    Trying to get 2 days work done today. I'll know more later this evening.


    UPDATE:

    I will not have time to go to the mountains tomorrow, as much as I'd like to. Just not enough time in the day. I'll actually be on some AWESOME roads tomorrow. Kennedy's Ridge in Bedford County - great paved roads with very little traffic, and even better gravel and dirt roads with hardly any traffic at all. But, to no avail. I'll be in a monsterous V-10 Ford Excursion.

    Well it looks like the weather has opened up another window Sunday. After a 12 hour day at work today I think I'll rest tomorrow and give it another try Sunday. Anybody game?

    I'm in for Sunday on the Ninja. It would be good to meet you all and see what else Mike has added to his quarter-concours:lol3

    Besides the hard cases, nothing yet. Although Mike (gtiv20turbo or something like that) is starting to manufacture a 'max protection' shield that is much larger and made with wind protection for the hands built in. Looks really good for cold weather riding, but I already spent my X-mas money for a heated vest that's on its way. :thumb

    Made the mistake of using Google checkout on this order instead of right from the Motorcyclesuperstore.com web site, 'cause Google has taken 2 days (and counting) to get them the money, despite having already taken it out of my account. And they have NO person you can talk to on the phone, email only. Very weird, and I definitely won't be using them again! :becca

    Probably...it's the most interesting way to get out there. We can always add a few more back roads in the mix getting to Buckingham. :ricky :ricky :ricky

    Ben Melton tells me you are trying to get a group together from the Valley. I'm sure we could easily make it to Montebello by 10:00 A.M. We'd need to head back from the Buena Vista area by 3:00 at the latest to make back before dark. That would give us about 5 hours to ride around out there.

    Awesome! I will plan on meeting you at Montebello at 10AM. So far, I haven't had any takers yet for the ride from the Valley. My boss on his DL1000 may join along depending on how his drywall/insulation work goes tommorow in his garage. Look forward to meeting the faces behind the names.

    Hopefully whatever weather comes through Sat night won't leave treacherous conditions up on the BRP. Only one way to find out

    Yeah pretty cold if you were leaving the capitol area around 8 or 8:30. Whatever you guys decide is fine with me. As long as you can get back to your area before dark its cool.

    Also, if anyone happens to drop a VA Tag in this area, that would ROCK!
