    Goose- I've never been to that one, I know the one on River Rd is descent. Try the other one we discussed down behind the Bank of America...Aviba or some thing like that. Another not Sushi but Vietnamese and excellent Restaurant is MeKong on Broad St. One of my favorites and try the Beef & Chix Grilled Platter. You will not be disappointed I promise.

    Wow. Been going there on/off for the better part of a decade and have never had a problem with the quality of food there, though they can get ridiculously slammed so the wait can be another story. Sorry your experience varied.

    I am riding today, can leave around 11:00 and be gone until dinner...Big bikes, little bikes, street, dirt, mixed, fast, slow, whatever...I don't care, I just want to ride and have an excuse to get me out of a all afternoon trip to "build a Bear" with 14 Girl Scouts! Help me!


    Let me know...:ear

    Wish I could help a brotha out...but my window of opportunity to ride is from 9-2 so will going to the Richmond BMW Riders Club breakfast meeting at 9:30 at Babes in Carytown and maybe joining that group ride. All are welcome, the ride usually starts about 10:30. I need to be back for an early Thanksgiving Feast with my side of the family this afternoon. Have fun everyone.:D

    Hey guys...
    If any of you inmates get out on the big bikes ride up to Orange VA. Brenda is going to jump around noon. Would love to get in a ride in after she/we jumps. I will have my phone with me. Its a beautiful day in Orange VA. Please show her some support. For goodness sake she is jumping out of a perfectly good airplane! :D

    Im leaving the house around 10 to slowly make my way up and around Lake Anna then over to Orange.

    Dan .... if we get back earlier than expected Forest Hill sounds good to me. If not today Im up for it anytime tomorrow. Lets stay in touch.

    So I beelined to Orange, but as an alt to 64/15/20, I took the following route that I would be happy to repeat on a bike: 64 W to 208/Courthouse Rd N to 33 W briefly in Louisa to Ellisville Dr / 669 N to Monrovia / 612 W to 20 N the last 3 or so miles.

    Chuck, good grief, I launched off a perfectly good ski run with a paraglider on my back without a whole bunch of cheerleaders ...it was simply way too fun to miss out on! :) Will send you a note when a rough jump time is established.

    *EDIT: Thank God I wasn't stupid enough to try and take the GS today. I had a ball trying to keep up with Dan while running the Chester Dakar and then we headed over to Forest Hill. That is some seriously good riding 30 minutes from home! I was still running the worn out street tire so I was all over the place, including a impressive get off into a rut and a stall/tip over in some stinky mud that soaked my left sock...nice. Back home safe, going online to order a real skidplate and some lowering dogbones for the DRZ. We need to get a group out there, it would be so much fun to chase each other around. It's technical in there with a nice mix of single track, mud, sand and some steep climbs and decents, with deep ruts thrown in to make you pucker up a bit!
    We saw a guy who crashed his bike who was really hurt and had to be rescued and carried out by his buddies in a Range Rover.

    Yeah Eddy, good time! Far as I'm concerned that's about max possible fun for minimum time investment. Let's rally some troops and do it again soon. I'll bring a camera next time if you're gonna keep doing those photo ops. :evil

    You guys rode past us, I had the YZ250, Dave had his RM250 and Jeff was on his DRZ. Dave and I have been 'training' for Harescrambles there for the past year or so and have cut in two 5 mile loops, one on each side of the Chippenham. You see all kinds of bikes / quads / trucks....you name it.
