    Getting a new German Shepherd dog early Saturday, and selling my 4x8 trailer immediately thereafter. Soooo... my weekend is shot for riding. Need to get the dog (10 mos. old) acclimated to the house, wife, and me, before Monday.

    I may run out to Todd's "Shootfest" with the dog, but that's about it. There is also a R/C plan "fly-in" at Bealeton's Flying Circus. Planes with up to 10ft. wingspans that hit 200mph. Oh, and ducted fan jets, and possibly model jets with real turbine-ish engines. Take the dog there too. Good roads near Bealeton.

    Stop on by !

    I may be interested if it isn't pissing rain. I hate setting up camp in the rain. Meeting Friday evening or Saturday morning?

    I'd be inclined if the "head out Friday" plan evolves. Got to be back in poonville mid-day Sunday.

    Would this be an on/off road venture or just pavement?

    You had a good plan there Squig (rhymes with squid!). Steverino needs to get ready for the big SWVLDW ride so don't crash his pad or he won't get it done. :evil

    I'll see you in Beckley at the L-cheapo motel, the one next to the TB :thumb I'll be heading over there Friday afternoon. If you can't leave till Sat just say where you want to meet.

    Where are the rest of the hornies? And WTF happened to Cityclip or Arron whatever his name is?

    You want to hook-up and shred some backroads with me Sat? Bring some swim trunks and we could grill out and take a swim in my pool afterward.

    Anyone else?

    OK. I'm in for a Saturday ride (too slammed for a two-day). Where's the meet point/time? Where's Scorch BTW, Portugal?

    PM me your cell for logistics.
