    Are you referring to the Cornerspin class or the Sandblast Rally?

    Sandblast. I doubt you could break 40mph at Cornerspin!

    Brenda, if you are not aware, there is a rail-to-trail closer to home at High Bridge Trail State Park. Nice place to further test your new rig. Park in Rice and ride into Farmville for a nice lunch at Walker's Diner. Lots of interesting history about the bridge.

    Per a Virginia State Parks email: "Virginia State Park campgrounds have opened back up for tent and RV camping, yurts and camping cabins. We are still following social distancing guidelines and some restrictions are still in place." Following the link on restrictions takes you here.

    Jeremy you know how I feel about too many lights! :raabia

    It’s been a busy week in the Alvarez garage. Wing? Gone! Bushtec? Gone! No not the Duke! Yep, she’s been sold and she’s spending her last night in garage tonight. (I’ll actually miss her!)

    Monday I bought this GS from a 78 year old guy near Cartersville who is getting out of bikes. He did a two month, 20,000 mile criss cross trip all over the Rockies, into California, up the west coast, the badlands, across Canada, including Nova Scotia before heading home. Wow! What an awesome way to finish riding motorcycles. Respect.

    Admore small light bar under the plate and their LED kit for the Givi E360/460.

    Also the have bike specific harnesses for the C14 and DL650. Means no cutting into the factory harness.

    Will be ordering another top case kit for my E360 so I can wire that one up for the DL650. Wanted to see how they worked before ordering two. They don't use the Givi connector in the mounting bracket, instead they use a small locking plug that bolts through a hole you drill. They even provided the drill bit in the kit.

    So I sell a few toys, make a HUGE amount of new floor space in the garage, the wife is happy and I am happy with my “new” GS. Life Is good...and then a friend and former co-worker tells me about this sad and unloved Piaggio MP3 in her garage. It only has 3200 miles, its in mint condition and she has “only put about 150 miles on it in the last year or two. She should be out enjoying the sunshine with you Eddy!”

    Yes I am a sucker for crazy good deals on two, and even three wheel toys. She should be a fun play toy for the summer.

    I have a good friend in Lynchburg that has the 500 cc version and loves it to death. granted he is about/close to 10 yrs older than me but he was getting ready to hang up riding cause his bikes were getting to heavy. It has given him a 3rd or 4th childhood.

    Hey all, long time no see. What y’all got to say about motorichmond? I just walked out of extreme in Fredericksburg and won’t go back anytime soon. I called and talked to Erika, and she seemed pleasant and was helpful.
