    I will see what I can do about pulling it up. I am not too tech savy with the GPS :D but I got the idea by using google maps. Essentially, I took Switzer Lake Rd to FR 85. It's off of Rt 33 in GWNF.

    and the video from the ride:

    anyone up for some low key riding around the gravel and paved roads of Aldie/Middleburg area tomorrow (Sunday)? I'm thinking meet at 11 am or so say at 7-11 on 15 and 234/Sudley Rd. or somewheres there about. Maybe do the stream crossing, ride for couple hours. Maybe grab some lunch.

    Anyone up for a ride this Sunday morning? Looking for mostly paved, a few gravel roads are ok but no dual sporting on the VFR, no super long distances just a couple of hours around, out at 9, back by noon kind of thing.

    If you're getting those outstanding results from MC campouts, why change what's working? :D

    Dirt or street? I don't know the roads up that way, so it sounds like an opportunity to learn some new routes!

    Thanks to Porcupine for leading me to some new roads and a good greasy spoon. I don't know if Ed noticed the woman next to him literally pouring a cereal bowl of gravy, potatoes, and bacon over some biscuits. I'll have to get that next time.

    The Europeans just happened to be there, was fun watching the poor sods try and push start the BMW.

    Good ride, good lunch & good company.

    I'm not sure gravy goes on the crabcakes but...well...maybe???
    and I pretty sure push starting that 1200, and they were gone for a long time, worked up an appetite.

    Now go count those KLR parts and mark sure nothing is missing.

    Next time.
