    for those that don't know where the Inn at Afton is http://www.theinnatafton.com/

    it's the hotel above the Chevron station at the intersection of US 250 and I-64 exit 99. it's at the southern of the SNP and north end of the BRP mile marker 0. usually on weekends the restaurant is open.

    Well- that was not the smartest thing I've ever done... I'm out boys- Nearly for good! The fucking rain was blowing so hard sideways that it was coming up under my helmet and coating the inside of my shield and my specs. Wind was pushing me sideways about 1/2 lane at a time. Leaves blowing all over the goddamned place- I couldn't see a fucking thing! Holiday traffic just made matters worse. I did just under 100 miles without actually seeing the road for about 80 of them. Something I learned working on the ocean years ago- don't stack bad decisions on top of one another- so I turned around. Sorry I'm not gonna be there- but that was some dicey shit out there tonight! Steve- I hope you didn't go out of your way for me... and I appreciate the invite. Time for a black and tan by the fire. You boys have a good time tomorrow- and be damned careful first thing in the morning- One way or another it's going to be slick out there.

    Jabba,

    Sounds like a good decision, better to ride another day. Glad to see you made it back safely, maybe you can do a small consolation ride tomorrow.

    It really looks (and sounds) like it's going to blow through quickly tonight, although I'll bet it's going to be right chilly in the am. I'll be watching out for the slick spots myself.

    Jestr

    Thanks for letting us know dude, I rode home the other night when the temp dropped 20 degrees in 15 minutes in this shit. I understand your decision.

    You can still do the slab blast in the AM and make it. Don't quit now, you got all them damn new electrics.

    Electrics? Was I wearing shiny new electrics? Well- they fucking suck!~ Couldn't even tell if the damned thing was on! WTF? Isn't Gerbings supposed to be the shit? I took the heatroller off and went full juice and I still couldn't tell if it was working. My neck was hot- that was it~ Shit's going back to Bob's tomorrow...
