    Anyone in the Lynchburg area wanting to go up to the Shenandoah 500 in early October?

    I'd like to go up early Saturday and return that evening, or I'd be down to tent camp Saturday night possibly if you want to ride both days...

    If you have a truck or trailer with room for me and my bike I'm willing to pay gas!

    Also, I have tickets for Overland Expo East in Arrington the following weekend in October...tickets for Friday and Saturday...if you're interested just let me know

    Anyone going down to Va Beach this week end for the festival?
    I am jumping on the bike after work on Friday and heading that way.

    Which festival? I'm on Army duty out in Missouri and will be going to Chicago to visit my brother and then we're going to the AIM Expo in Columbus, Ohio this coming weekend...

    Still looking for a Shenandoah 500 participant willing to go up next weekend on Saturday...

    Also have tickets for Overland Expo the following weekend 11-12 October; that's just up the road from Lynchburg in Arrington...

    This doesn't seem to be the most active group of locals.....

    Despite the fact that only Goosecreek and I post in here consistently, I will again be an equal opportunity afforder of opportunities...

    I came across this announcement and if anyone is interested in rolling out to this let me know because I may be going:

    Frontlines Eurosports of Roanoke is hosting a group ride and camp out this weekend at no charge. The group ride will focus on gravel roads and the Blue Ridge Parkway. All are welcomed.

    The second opportunity I will afford a fellow local inmate is the Overland Expo East in Arrington...

    I have day passes for Friday and Saturday, however, the extra day pass I have for Saturday may be spoken for already.

    That means I still have one available for Friday, next weekend...

    I plan to ride up there from just north of Lynchburg Friday and Saturday morning...

    Opportunities afforded...

    I know goosecreek said he's booked solid through November so we'll see if anyone else is willing to activate....

    I rode with those guys from Forntline last year. Be prepared to haul ass! It was a fun time, and I'm not known for riding slow....

    Finding myself pretty much only on dirt bikes this summer. I'll burn up the pavement when winter settles in... :loco

    I'm currently rebuilding a dirt bike for my Dad, so all my free time has been going towards getting him back on two wheels :thumb

    I've never ridden with that outfit but I pop in that dealer once in a while when in Roanoke for other reasons...

    The famous, or infamous depending on who you're talking with, Nate Jennings is gone and a new guy, Pat, has taken the helm of sales there...I shot the breeze with him and he seems legit...

    It sounds like they are going to be rolling off-pavement during this ride which is legit...I plan to take my CRF250L Rally...I got a BMW but want to give the nod to the Honda...we'll see if I am persecuted for not having a roundel on my bike....

    standing by for guidance and commentary from @goosecreek

    I forgot, two years ago I bought an inmate's ticket for the Twin Valley Rally which this dealer sponsors...I did a demo ride with the crew from this dealer so I guess I have ridden with them; the demo ride was cool and not too fast

    Nate razzed my buddy and I about getting real bikes ( I was on a XR and my buddy was on a WRF), but it was all in good fun. Those big Beemers can fly in the gravel, but they sure hit the ground hard when things go wrong!

    I'm tracking @toddzacker as a KTM loyalist....would a BMW starship allow such a man to lead their expedition?

    I'll have to check. I might be able to ride out. Can't camp for sure. Busy here.

    I've only ridden with @shinyribs in the past year pretty much.

    @goosecreek what you been up to?

    And Glenn thanks for all the open invitations. Really. I have wanted to accept many times just have scheduling problems.

    I'm local to Roanoke these days but Lynchburg isn't far.
