    Melton, Mudmanajl & I are meeting at Rte 60 Flat
    Rock Sheetz in Powhatan Sunday at 7:30 for a days ride.

    We haven't picked a route yet but it will head west.
    The twistier and more scenic the better.
    Knowing Melton, you might want to bring your bathing suit just in case.
    Unless you want to use the one you were born with...

    Anybody else interested? :ricky

    Come on Freak. You really should wait until this Fall when it's cooler to cut down the trees. You wouldn't want to get overheated doing that kinda work this time of year.
    Lets :ricky instead.

    No thanks...I cut down 13 oaks by myself 3 years ago. One of them had a 3 foot diameter stump. I had five cords of wood excluding the limbs and tops when I was finished. The back yard looked like a tornado went through it. Now I'm down to 2 or 3 a year when it's nice and cool. Good luck and be careful.

    Man, another SUNDAY ride!

    :baldy

    Oh well, after TRYING to keep up with you last night after the movie, I guess y'all would leave me behind within 2 miles of Flatrock anyway! I never saw you again once I got around the Tahoe at Broad & 288! "Where'd 'Stom go???"

    That WeeStrom is fast! :eek1

    Have a great ride, & be safe.

    I'm sorry Jimmy. I checked my mirrors when I got out on 288 but couldn't see the headlight behind me any more so figured whoever it was must have gone straight out Broad street. I didn't know it was you. I would never intentionally just run off a leave you. I ride a lot more sedately in a group. Honest :getiton

    No worries! I'm just busting your chops a little. I saw you ahead of me on 288 - probably 1/4 mile or so. My bike has just under 700 miles on it, and I want to keep the sustained rpm's under 5k for a few hundred more miles - that puts me at an indicated 75 mph.

    As far as your sedate group riding style.... I'm betting there's a busted up 'busa that would disagree! :wave

    I might be up for it, but is this going to be a mix of street and dirt? I just have two street bikes.

    Street. Neither of Melton's bikes are off road oriented i.e. K75 & Ninja 250. I will say he does really well considering. Come join us :ricky
