    One of the things that inspires me is when others also take an interest in being a ride leader. Good on you. :clap

    When I first purchased Klim, there were not many choices in gear that was inherently waterproof. I have been really happy with Klim's performance, as I have ridden through some of the heaviest rain possible in it and it doesn't seem like one drop gets in the jacket. Having said that, Klim just doesn't quite fit me right. I'm between sizes and the sleeves are too long for me.

    Now that other companies are providing competition in this space, I need to try on some other brands.

    I am thinking about riding out to WV next weekend for my first motorcycle ride since the surgery. Anyone else interested or are planning on being out there?

    On my way home from a fun first trip to the OBX. Had fun driving on the beach. Might go back next year and rent a house but will definitely be "off season".

    Speaking of broken ribs, Gail is now in Santiago Chile waiting for his bike to arrive. Plans on riding the Carretera Austral again.

    No. He said it was really expensive. There were a few roads he wanted to ride. I think he went to a HUBB event.

    I thought he was planning to get back to Russia at some point, but he's also 4 1/2 years into this trip. I'm sure the "fuck it" factor is high at this point....

    hey fellas I'm gonna pick up my tags at JT Motorsports (Frederick MD) @ 1000 hrs tomorrow morning, and then head west up through Berkeley Springs WV and down into Seneca Rocks. I don't have to be back to work until Tuesday so I'm just gonna see where I end up. Feel free to meet up with me and join for as short or as long as you like -- or if you have any road suggestions, etc. here's my route for now:

    Virginia International Raceway didn't disappoint today. 6 unfortunate souls did get the dollar tour of the grass runoffs. One GS lost a windshield, while the S1000 didnt crash nearly as gracefully.

    The Tourance Next tires have been superstars. Amazing traction on the GS, wet or dry.

    Tommorrow should be a hoot, and we even ride with a crisp snap to the Fall sunshine.
