    I heard they expanded it to 160 this year and already have over half registered and paid.

    :y0!

    I'll have all my parts tomorrow, including new rear tire with actual offroad looking tread pattern.

    Like to make a loop around the TG, hold the "whipits" of course. Sorry Doc. :evil Ever notice when your name gets used as a verb it's generally not a good thing?

    For all you retired, weekend workers or self employed inmates .... a couple of us are taking off early in the morning for some dirt and gravel up near Sperryville (211 and the Parkway). I got my butt handed to me over there a couple years ago so we are going back to re-explore. I think it was Dirtdoctor, Ed Andrew's, me and someone on a BMW. If anyone is interested in going let us know.

    Dan .... thats a nice looking tire. I have seen you ride off road without any tread .... imagine what you can do with that tire.

    @bastardBiker - I live around the corner from the TG, so could meet anyone at Crestwood or the back of the Martin's at Forest Hill after Poe's, I suppose. Strangely enough I've not ventured into there (TG) yet but keep being tempted to do so.

    By the way, Wayne Robertson has invited some riders to shoot down to VMP either this afternoon or tomorrow - they are running the speed trials. Expect to see him and Houston Smith at least.

    I can PROBABLY make it out. I will officially be in my new place Saturday, and despite having crap to move in I think I can slip out for a few hours Sunday. I wouldn't be able to make it out till probably 1 or 2 though.

    yup! Been waiting for the 705 to wear out to get one but the durn Shinko WILL NOT DIE.. Finally I had enough sliding around and ordered anyway.

    Chuck I've been wanting to check that area out around 211/Skyline Dr since you mentioned it a while back. Can you make a gpx track off your GPS.. or just grab us a few turn off waypoints if you think about it?

    Cool! Hope you guys can make it on Sunday. It'd be good to ride with you again Ric! Haven't seen ya since that first TG ride on my Ninja, IIRC.

    I'm headed to the creek at Bryan Park to get lit, skip some rocks and look for bugs. If any locals want to join me I'll be there for the next hour or so probably. Look at my previous posts for my phone # if you need it.

    Yep, I should be there. My TKC for the rear of the F800GS is here. I'll mount it this weekend.
    I am OK. My shoulder never turned black and blue. It hardly hurt today. My work season is definitely here and I'm glad I didn't get hurt so bad that I had to put off work. I could lose customers that way.
    After viewing that clip about 5 times I remembered a similar clip. It's also a little over 30 seconds...

    Enjoy!
