    During my last stint of "Harley Riding" I didn't see many dirt roads, not because it bothered me in the least, but because many of the people I rode with weren't into it (they'd do it, but they didn't like it).

    I love to ride those quiet back roads, either with folks who don't mind just wandering around, or by myself. A few weeks ago I had the chance to get away for a Saturday and go poking around in the Virginia hills in Floyd, Carroll and Patrick counties. I had ridden these areas for years, but mostly the small paved roads. This time I tried to find every dirt road I could. :evil

    A great area to just wander and get lost.

    I found my way onto the BRP eventually and lunched on some tuna and crackers.

    It was good to get on the bike. I hadn't really ridden since getting back from BYOB over a month ago, between working long hours and the repulsive heat and humidity, it just didn't happen.
