    I'll definitely be up on the BRP. Gonna hit the Aunt Sarah's on Rt.11 in Lexington with a friend like late morning.​

    Anyone?​

    (sorry Scorch, I know this is cross posted with the other 'New Year's Day' thread ...)​

    Plan to ride tomorrow but was hoping to get the (not yet tagged) DRZ out.

    Reddish Knob is tempting though :dunno

    What time frame for Reddish Knob? I am working until 04:00 Saturday morning but will roll out and hit the street about 11:00 so maybe I can meet everyone up there?

    Damn I want to go, but I'll be out riding that morning with a n00b friend who doesn't even like to ride down my gravel driveway. (You're talking about gravel roads to get there, or no?)

    Eh, maybe we'll get our ride over with early, maybe not. Reddish Knob sounds like fun.

    OK - when folks say deli they generally mean Ray's. I like MM better. More "atmosphere".

    See you there about 10am.

    No gravel! It is smooth sailing to the top via hard top.

    Be careful out there. Usually people get pretty rusty after not riding for a while, and when a good day comes along they try to push themselves one final time before putting the bikes away. Careful and enjoy.

    Cool.

    Now if only my buddy hadn't pushed our ride back to a 10:00 departure time before I read this ...

    I'll head up that way but I'm not sure we'll get there in time to meet up with anyone.

    :cry :cry :cry


    on edit: My friend might not want to go that far, so we'll see.

    Well, I'm going to cut my hair, shower, dress, and pack the baby and Lady Pamela into the car for a drive over to an aunt's house for a family party and not ride my motorcycle at all on a Jan 1 day in the mid-60's. :thumb You?
