    Interested in dropping by for the road rides. I don't do the camping thing as I live out in the sticks anyway. I can build a fire in the front yard next to the stream, drink beer, and when I am done go in the house for a shower. :lol3 Seneca rocks is a nice day ride. After hitting Seneca Rocks you can head over to Moorefield and cut down through Trout Pond over to 259, then head through Singers Glen area back to 33.

    I am about 35 miles from Harrisonburg so feel free to stop in H14XL, I live in Orkney Springs, VA. Just send me a PM if you want to visit, lots of dirt roads nearby but my Multistrada is a road machine only, I'd cry if I dropped it (again) so the dirt is all yours. I dropped it New Year's day when my foot slipped in a parking lot waiting for Hburgninja.

    The campsite is down a gravel road with some exposed rock seams and softball sized rock in places. For any "road" riders @ this event - it may be a good idea to meet on 33 @ the turn for Skidmore Fork lest ye wind up scratching fairings, bending levers and tasting dirt:deal

    Thanks for the invite. Sounds like you need a dual-sport real bad.
