See you there in a bit.

Sheesh, if you make a habit of that I might as well try to go someplace with my daughter... LOL.

No Problem, was just getting set to leave. That gives me time for another cup of coffee.

Haha! Well I showed up.

Thanks for hosting the ride. Riyadh and I thoroughly enjoyed it.

Was a wild beginning! Gravel, snow, slick roads. You couldn't ask for worse conditions. Though once we hit Fort Valley things lit up, literally.

Upset I didn't bring my GoPro because the views were simply staggering. The pace was excellent too; spirited but not stupid fast.

Here are two photos I took:

Good meeting y'all. Mount Weather lived up to it's name, LOL. Glad the whole ride wasn't that wintery.

Chill ride on some roads I haven't been on in a long time. Good times.

Riding with windblown revealed to me that warm weather is nice.

Saturday's forecast is predicting a high of 70F. So I'm considering riding up to PA to complete this loop

With the scenery and twisty roads it shall be a good time. Might trim it down to save time.

Who is game?

Roll call. Who is brave enough to join me? Heist has expressed his interest as seen in the chat bar.

Got two co workers coming in their bimmers.

Lets do it big .net

Edit: Leaving from Frederick at 8:00AM. Should take 8-9 hours roundtrip with breaks. That's a generous estimate, might cut it down

Negative sir. You know I do it big.

Two bikes and two cars.

Daytona, FZ07, 330iZHP, and a Cobalt SS.

Meeting at 200 Schoolhouse Dr Middletown, MD 21769 @ 800AM. Departing at 815AM.

Will probably get back around 500 or 600PM - being generous with time.

See y'all there

Got back an hour ago. It was north of 400 miles roundtrip for me. Roads were great with the exception of a few that were flooded with gravel and bumps. Ridiculous amount of footage to sift through and, um, edit...

I think Nova Scotia is doable on the Daytona. I took coolkhas's advice and sat two inches back from the tank, while gripping the tank, and it dramatically reduced back pain.

Really need instruction at the track regarding my cornering. I think my body position is correct but do feel slightly crossed up. Instinct is to apply pressure to the outside peg and not the inside.

I rode down around Warrenton,Marshall,& Middleburg with some folks from Northern VA yesterday. The Triumph needed a bath and I heard there was a free bike wash!
