DEPARTING FORM LEESBURG 7/8/2006 - July 4, 2006, 08:38 AM

The plan is to leave from leesburg about 9:30. From there head north and west though VA, WV, MD possibly PA. Ride will be in the 400 mile range. I don't of any good meeting places in Leesburg, open to suggestions. Dragula says Sheetz is bad, I agree. I think there is a Starbucks across the street.

Once again this ride will be for more expirenced riders. No one will be left behind. Post up if you are interested. If we get more than 7 or 8 riders I will most like break it up into 2 groups.

Panera sounds good to me. Where is it. I don't know the names of all the strip malls in Sleezburg.

No particular "pace". I am not one to go fast in a straight line. I try to keep the speed to no more than 10 over. When the road get twisty go as you wish just wait for us slower riders at the end. I have had no speeding tickets in 12 years and plan to keep it that way.

Rronin,

I have been on one of these rides with Space, the pace willl be good and he was actually toting a passenger on the back. I figure if he is riding by himself it will be a good upbeat pace. It will not be as fast as the pace was when I was riding with you guys. Hell, I was bouncing off the rev limiter in 3rd gear at 120mph. hee hee!!!

All,

You can count me in!!!

Later


OVER? did you say "Over"? Nothing is over until we decide its over, was it over when the Germans bombed Pearl Harbor? Hell No!!!

I might be in for this ride too.

Also PRonin, I THINK I was in your group when you led in Newbie ride couple months ago.

I am pretty sure that you remember Jonathan who wrecked his bike. (if you are the right person ) I am the one who was riding blue/white R6, friend of Jonathan's.

Is this a tourer type of ride that tests the fortitude of one's ass cheeks? Or will there be reasonable stops? I forget to breath on a lot of those west virginia twisty roads. 400 mi is a long time to hold one's breath, and I don't want to be holding my ass all day Sunday

But the wife (wildflwr) and I are looking for a good ride Saturday morning and would love to join up.

speaking of wives, mine will be in class all day. So time to take out the girlfriend. Although this will push me a bit past my break in point, I think it'll be worth it. I should have my GPS up and running on the bike by then. Count me in for now.

400 miles - so i guess I'd have to actually get gas once.

I have no problems with my ass. If you have to hold yours after a good ride you may want to get it checked out. I usually stop when someone needs fuel. for me thats between 200 and 240 miles. Most of you can only make 150 miles or so. I maybe 2 up as well.

Kone, if you are looking for a noob ride this ain't it. We are not going to be blistering the tires but it not going to be slow.

I am real familiar with Leesburg. How about meeting at the shopping center across from Costco. I think there is a gas station there.

Space, don't worry.

I read your post and understood it's not a noob ride.
As long as it is not one of those fast&furious type of ride, i will be fine.

Is anybody going to Leesburgh from Fairfax area(springfield/annandale to be specific)? maybe we can meet up somewhere and ride togher.

Hey Space, if you've made this run before, how long did it take?

I've got about 8 hours max to and from my house; any longer than that and my dogs are going to leave me presents in my living room.
