    Sunday is about 50/50 for me right now. Decide where you are riding and I will try to make it. I am going to ride tomorrow from around noon until 6, in case I can't ride Sunday, and end up rideless for the weekend....

    How about just meet in Danbury between 12-12:30? At the general store or Dan River restaurant? Anyone is welcome to come, I guess we will probably just hit the tip of VA and do some light gravel road riding or we can venture a little deeper if y’all want. :D

    Going to meet today at 1:00 at Sarah's Fox Creek General Store on highway 16 North. It's about 3 miles north of the highway 16 and highway 58 intersection. We will ride west of highway 16 toward Damascus and Elizabethton, TN on NFS roads.

    Wish I could make it today extreme, tell Sarah I say howdy. I have nowhere in particular to go tomorrow Wiley, so wherever is fine with me. Anyone else want to get out?

    Glad I showed up today to meet Brad and Wiley. Learned some new roads of all sorts. I need to get that WR250R ASAP. Great ride, guys!

    Great meeting you too Steve. Sorry I didn’t really have a planned route, hope today’s roads were good enough for y’all. That Africa Twin is beautiful Wiley, I love that bike! Next time, we will get “lost” a little more. When we split off from you Steve we set the gps on home but tried to make it work for it because we kept splitting off on “interesting” looking roads haha. Made it home just before dark, even with the late start still got in around 230 miles or so. Only pic I got today lol

    The late start just meant we didn't need to put on extra layers. It was cold this morning! My tally was 268 miles per the GPS.

    We had some strange temperature inversions this weekend. Warmer up high and cool in the valleys in the morning. I was in LS (3700') Saturday and it was 55 at 8:30 am so I drove to the apple orchard in Bakersville where it was 38! I got back to LS and it was still 55 so I rode the Parkway all the way to Weaverville to meet some friends to ride and it was nice all the way; warmish, no tourists that early. Thought about meeting you all Sunday, but that's a tone of miles west to east on a chilly morning. Steve, glad you got to meet Cheap. He's a good guy when he's not dropping your MC.

    Hey tireatr, next time you're near Weaverville and need a riding pardner give me a holler. I'm just over the river on the West side. Lots of rides happening 2-3hr East or South of here but few venture into my quadrant.

    Hey Viper. I'm in Little Switzerland and will do day trips as far west as Franklin, northwest to KY North east to Wytheville/Bland, and south....not much worth riding south except in the Winter.
