    Planning is coming along! We will be traveling west to east on the upper route. We will attempt as many advanced sections, shown in red, as humanly possible! Dan I emailed you the GPX[​IMG]

    This really looks cool. Id like to ride with you guys, im in Warrenton, but Im as green as it gets. Even if I could go with you guys on that trip, I currently would never go cause I would screw your trip up after I died on it. I did a good bit of the Shenandoah 500 and loved the wide open dirt rocky road part. I also enjoyed the woods part but that was my limit and I did fall 4 times which was fun for me. Id like to go back to those woods trails on my wr250. But I would also like to go back to the dirt road parts on my Triumph. Or some rides up to Luray and back. Im very comfortable on pavement.
    Im happy to ride to work all this week, today is beautiful

    However, riding Moab is one of those places you can't swing a dead cat and not get some incredible footage.

    Unnamed riders gathered at an undisclosed location this morning. Rode some private single track and ATV trails, explored some new (dead end) trails, got stuck in a creek and took some poser pics that make us look like jackasses (nothing new).

    What more could you want on a Thursday in December?

    GW Forest for dirt/forest roads. There's a bunch of good gravel Southwest of ya in the Culpeper/Madison area. You have a GPS or a way to view GPX files?

    When the spring comes take the Tiger up to Dolly Sods. Lots of dirt and gravel there. There are dirt roads over the mountains to get there. Plenty of camping.

    Unfortunately no exciting ride reports like Dan and Austin but mid 30s this morning on the ride to work and I have to say Hippo Hands are the best damn invention ever! I don't care how goofy they look when your hands feel like they are next to a roasting fire riding down the road.[​IMG]

    Does anyone want to ride Monday? Looks like rain on Tuesday... prefer big bike (heated grips). If not, I may just tool around up near culpepper or go ride cub run rd and up into Woodstock tower area ::shrug:: Maybe look for places in Northern Neck?
