Thanks. Don't know when that will happen. Her schedule stays full with more important things. I'm pretty sure the beast needs a starter valve sync. The good news is that it's rideable for the moment.
I'm planning to meet a couple of Canadians on Sunday before the spring ride. Three days on the best roads. You should join us.

Maybe we can meet you for day two and three of the ride, the previous weekend we will be at VIR watching the MotoAmerica races.  Possibly meet you somewhere on route on Day one, just see how it all plays out.

The Beast has its own strategy. I hardly ever have time for bored and as little as I ride, nearly no maintenance.

I tried to book a room yesterday after work. The guy said I had to call between 7 & 3 to talk to the person doing the VFR bookings. Tried calling before work & during my two breaks today. No one was answering the phone. Finally got through after work, 4:00 EDT and got put on hold for 15 minutes. I was then told that there are no rooms left, VFR or otherwise. GRRRR!

 

Guess I'll be making other plans.

I called yesterday around 3-4pm and spoke with someone AS I REALIZED I FORGOT TO RESEVE MY OWN ROOM! She gladly took my reservation and said they had about 6-8 rooms with queen beds left for those dates. 

 

I would storngly urge you to call again today. 

 

I hope to see you there!

In other news folks, I have tried to take this ride and make it about local businesses as well as the great roads.

so with that being said, we will be getting kegs of beer again, but this time it will be Amber Ale from Lazy Hiker Brewing Co. which is based out of Franklin. 

We will also be catering a full meal for Saturday dinner from a locally owned BBQ restaurant. 

 

You wont want to miss out, so PLEASE REGISTER ON EVENTBRITE!

 

Thanks!

The registration closes on May 5th so my printer has time for the shirts. If you can't swing it by then, let me know via P.M. and we can figure something out.  Just an F.Y.I.

Ahhh! The one weekend I have a wedding this summer. I would have loved to attend otherwise. Any possibility of purchasing a shirt without attending the event?

I can't believe the Self Promotion here!

I like it!!!!!!! Looks like a very nice 5th gen up there with Beetle Bags riding 2-up. :-)

 

If we go with that one, I might want extras.
