    Several of us here have either been to RawHyde, the BMW PC (Performance Center) or other schools for formal training. I would be happy to show anyone what they taught me, share the training DVD with you and tell you what you are supposed to do in certain situations. Doing it all beautifully is a different story. Going to these programs only means that you spent a bunch of money, not that you are a crazy good GS rider...that was proven a few weeks ago when I got humbled in the finals of the GS Trophy. There is a plethora of excellent, very experienced riders in this area who could share their skills.

    Jeff, I am also bouncing around an idea that I could discuss in a PM.

    The exchange is most amusing to onlookers though. :D

    I've said it before and I'll say it again: IN! And DIBs! :deal :D

    May-be. Would Nicole be able to join along? If so, I might be up for some easy dirt with her while the guys tackle other fun, if she'd be up for same. (Still haven't found a DR200 FS in the area, but then again I forget to look... is there any way to get those craigslist tools to email you new ads based on your search terms?)

    I will not even say anything about this weekend to her...or maybe Sunday...she is in class all day Saturday & if I said you wanted to go she would try to skip class...not good for the patients. I will say something about Sunday if you want...

    I've got a couple Richmond ADV stickers left. Chuck may also have some still. Will bring what I have with me next ride. And thanks for putting Nicole and I in touch!

    Hey Guy- what time will you guys be out at Natural Bridge & when will you be returning?
    I'm working Roanoke Thursday and then a case in Blacksburg Friday morning. I will be heading back around 12 or 1 so if I knew the route back you are taking. I might slide in an it would give me one more reason to ride the bike instead of riding in the cage.

    Todd, we'll be there for the entire w/e, returning Sunday sometime. Still waiting to hear if the Blue Grass Ruritan club will be having their buckwheat and sausage all-you-can eat breakfast this w/e. We've always tried to date our event with theirs, but they changed the date for the last couple of years and we missed it. If it's on, then a number of us will leave NB and ride up there to pig out, then head home.

    Holy smokes! Over 350 people in front of me waiting to vote. I've been in line almost an hour. No way in Hell am I getting out of this line! My parents didn't leave everything they knew and owned to travel to greatest country on earth to have their kids and grandchildren live under the oppression of a undocumented, atheist, socialist, liar and his idiot sidekick who is suffering from early Alzheimer's...go vote!

    Bikes are cool!


    10:31: Arrived at the school to vote at 0725, finally seeing patients at work! THREE hours to vote and get to work! Crazy...
