    Yup, 613 and others into 33 and then CR24 and CR21 up to 220 and down to Monterey - pretty ride.

    Understand on the timing. We generally haul ass down 250 or 33 when we are in a hurry - either way it's 3-4 hours to get back.

    We have started looking for a trailer since the GMR to make life simple - drop off the dogs and cage at her Mom's, ride, have fun and then swing back pick up dogs, load the bikes up and come home. The 88 mile trip to back and forth is becoming a PIA.

    Beck wants to stay home so I will probably ride the F650 (it feels neglected - 5.5K on the RT in 4 weeks, 30 on the F650) so I will be going slow.

    I was thinking about heading out to 211, over the Gap and to make some time get off 81 just south off Harisonburg on exit 240 and go across to 42, then 747 and 730 to US250 at White's Store and then up the hill to Monterey.

    If I leave the house at 8, that will put me in Monterey by noon, and in Sperryville sometime after 9:30 (no Valentine 1 on the F650) and New Market/81 around 10:30 or so.

    Saturday, Steve and I meet up with philspace for a little journey through the hills. Ran over to Monterey VA and had lunch with some to the Twin Valley riders out of Roanoke.

    Phil was in the hills for the first time with the thumper and kept bouncing off the rev limiter :lol1
