    Yeah man, thanks for running that ride zeroselect! Ended up having a wonderful time, minus the little mishaps :rofl Heres a few of the pictures I captured for the day:

    After most the people headed about, a few of us decided to go play in the water

    Great pics! Ah, looks like I should've hung a little longer with you guys; would've enjoyed playing in that big puddle. Where is that btw since both rides went to it but I missed out?

    Me and the SXV guys were taken it leisurely when the big guy (sorry, didn't get his name) got a case of "go-where-you-look" and tagged a guard rail at the hairpin at the top of Snickersville Turnpike. F'ed his front wheel up but fortunately he was able to ride still. That cut short the exploring he was going to lead so I took "IAMBLK" (love that) south on Bull Run Mountain road for some more gravel time. I didn't see him 'til we parted ways at 601 but he said he had a good time.

    Hope to ride with y'all again soon.

    Anyone up for riding this weekend? Havent checked the weather, have a few places in mind but others probably know a better route. Maybe another meet up at Sheetz then off to a trail or maybe even Peters Mill Run/ Taskers Gap. Been there since Tuesday came back today but definitely interested in going again, with people. PM me if anyone wants to ride but I wont be able to get back to you till 6am, work 930-6am Friday-Monday.

    Lets ride! :ricky

    Big RTE in Marshall on Sunday. I plan on a few hours of dirt afterwards. Sure there will be plenty of activities to chose from.

    Don't mean to be posting so much, but there is a mainly HD ride meeting up at Spankys/Shenanigans in Leesburg at Noon. Dualsports, etc. are totally cool. Im on a muddy bent up KLR myself.

    WHERE:
    Spankys/Shenanigans Pub: 538 E Market St, Leesburg, VA

    Staging is most likely around back by the tiki bar. If nothing else comes up I will be there with a friend and then everyone there is my friends friend, so it should be nice. I don't think there will be any offroading involved but there is a party in Lucketts after the ride either the ride goes to it or there is just one afterwords I'm sure is open to other riders.

    See you at Spankys @ Noon :freaky

    I'm leaving Leesburg Red Hot & Blue around 9:30 and taking the loooong scenic route to the RTE in Marshall. ETA 11:30.

    Yes there will be dirt and gravel en route. Nothing bad just local roads.

    After lunch, since nobody will still be talking to me,
    I'll take a different route home.

    Join if you care to.

    I gotta a hankering for some crabcakes.

    And I have a slightly different route to Shepardstown.
    Then on to Berkley Springs and Westward and South.

    Leave Leesburg Red Hot & Blue at 10 AM
    all asphalt (unless the attendees demand a reroute)

    Any Players?

    Trouble with commitment...?
    just show up. (but don't be late.)

    If anyone wants to check out some cool motorcycle skills, the Mid Atlantic Police Motorcycle Riding Committee is having a "rodeo" at the Dulles expo mart this weekend. I don't know the exact schedule of events, but I caught these guys doing their thing a few years ago at the Walmart parking lot in Fair Lakes, and it was pretty cool to watch. Great motorcycle handling skills on display.
