    KTM MIKE'S FRIDAY OCTOBER 3rd RIDE Weather Permitting:


    SAFETY IS FIRST: Please, no crazy stuff, no tailgating. Ride at your own safe pace, someone will be waiting at the next turnoff.

    RIDING TOGETHER: If the guy in front of you stops, please stop with him, and everyone behind you will stop too, then the leaders will return.
    This way breakdowns will not end in chaos. This ride will move fairly quickly, but it is not a race. Work together.

    DEPARTURE: MEET 930am, at the entrance to Campground. DEPARTURE 945am

    BIKES: Supermotos, Adventure Bikes, Dualsports (You will need some ground clearance for the rocky steep stuff. No cruisers, no dressers, no elephants)

    TIRES: Dualsport Tires (Street Tires OK if conditions are dry. Knobbies not necessary)

    TIRE REPAIR: Please bring your own tire repair materials.

    ROADS: paved ROADS, gravel ROADS, rocky steep ROADS.

    FUEL: Please fill up your fuel tank the night before. Your range should be at least 80 miles. Please bring cash for gas because many rural gas stations do not accept credit or debit cards.

    LUNCH: Carry snacks & drink in case of delays. We will try to stop someplace quick & not fancy around lunchtime IF that turns out to be possible.

    SPLITTING EARLY: If you decide to return to camp early, stop and tell the sweep. Bring maps so you can find your way back.

    I know Freddie from ETSU about forty years ago. He lives in the maze.

    Scooter says Black's sells beer. I think all those little stores do.

    Don't they also sell beer at the little former gas station up 107 at the intersection of Blue Mill Road (the first end of the loop)???
    That one is really pretty close to Old Fifteenth and Catnip. They even have bands in there sometimes.

    That is the fox den, they dont sell beer (but have gas and good food). The shack was only store in Del Rio that had it and its closed now but word is sombody bought it and is reopening it. So theres a chance it may be open by then. Closest beer is Blacks, Bridgport Mkt and Stateline Bar and all are accessible with very little hwy, but then again haulin it back to camp may get a little tricky in a few spots.:D

    They stopped carrying PREMIUM gasoline a long time ago, so I stopped going there.
    Have they started carrying PREMIUM gasoline again ???

    (KTM's use PREMIUM, so for the last few years, I've been going to Black's instead).
