8/16 Route 33 Ride Report - August 16, 2008, 03:54 PM

Not much to but say but........HOLY SHIT!!!

What a road, pretty unbelievable.

The ride out SUCKED, we just slabbed it on 66 and 81, but it was well worth it when we got out there. We made several passes over then took a lunch break at Fox's. After lunch we made a couple more passes the headed for home. Some of the group just slabbed it back. Stretch, myself and three others (sorry guys, don't remember names) came back via 211, made a pass over the mountain and worked our way back to civilization via various backroads.

Speaking of 211, my apologies again for my Bozo pass on the inside, I though your were drifting wide then I saw you coming back in. Completely my fault...I'm a fucktard.

Oh, and unlike yesterday's Frederick ride, nobody crashed!

Thanks R6Speed for putting this together and leading us out, and nice riding with you guys today. Awesome time.

Here's a link to a few pics...

Nah, you knew it wouldn't be!

We had some really good runs up and down 33, it was one of those days where things just felt right. From the very first pass it was on!

sweet f-ing ride today! the highway really sucked, but carving up the mountainside was pretty badass. luckily no one went down in the group and it was nice to keep my tools under the seat this time, where they belong.

my rear tire is just about cooked, i limped home ok and the cords are starting to show throught the center of the tread . it sucked having to take it easy on the way home, but once i put some new rubber on the wheels i'll be ready to tear up those huge sweepers like time.

nice meeting you guys, we need to do that again. taty, no excuses next time

None at all. We didn't hang out there, though. One pass, headed back home.

We were gonna do another pass but we were all pretty beat. I know I was. I was fooling around in our area Thursday for a couple hours then did Widow's Friday ride (7 hours). So after all that then the long day today, I was DONE!

Oh yeah, Stretch's tire was the other reason we didn't fool around on 211. It was a little sketchy by the end of the day, with the cords hanging out and all. He definitely got his money's worth, LOL!

a massive burnout to finish it off sounds like fun, but i don't really want to clean molten rubber off of my swingarm. i would be rolling out tomorrow if it wasn't for the stupid tire, unless anyone wants to loan me a bike?

Have you ever tried those on the street? I'll be needing a new set soon and am debating Pilot Races or Supercorsas. Just wondering how they'll be on the street?

I don't know...I'm pretty beat and I think I'd feel like I was pushing it a little too much. There was some hard riding yesterday and today.

i've seen them on the street, but this will be my first set. they're the older dragon supercorsas, not the diablo supercorsas. i've heard a lot of opinions, but the general consensus is that the diablo sc is the stickiest (in pirelli's line) you can get without needing tirewarmers, but you'll get < 1000 miles. the dragon sc should get closer to 2000-3000. this is, of course, just what i've heard, so YMMV. i'll let you know how far they get me in a month or two...if i can make it thru 1-2 race weekends and a few street miles i'll be happy.
