On the calendar.
Show up on time, do your best and don't grumble about the outcome.

This is going to be a 9 day solo trip for me starting Sept 2nd. VA, WV goodness on the way down to this...http://advrider.com/index.php?threads/smokey-moluntain-500.926507/
Sparta Friday night, home Sunday.


I'm very interested in your route.  I have a nice paved / gravel road route for my Saturday day loop.  What are you doing Saturday of the meet, a portion of this route?  If not, are you interested in my loop?


Current plans are to ride the SM500 Monday-Wednesday. I'm on the fence about whether I'm gonna make a run down to Barber, or just enjoy that whole area Thursday/Friday. I have no plans for Saturday, so maybe I'll just fixate on your tail light.

Sweet!  I'd love to get a couple of folks to join me in traveling the "roads less traveled" especially the ones around Burkes Garden, Mt. Rogers, and continuing on the ridge through Troutdale, Sugar Grove, and Cripple Creek (all in VA)

Did anyone get a confirmation email from Alleghany Inn?  I have no proof that I booked there.  Nothing on the credit cards, no email.

I just looked in my "travel" email folder and I did receive an email from the Inn.

Reservations are made. I am heading back home on Saturday the 9th but I should be getting down there mid-day Thursday with all day Friday to ride around.

FYI, when booking online it indicates the ESTO17 group code has expired.

Damn I want to go. But I'm going to be on holidays. ...in Nova Scotia.
Maybe next year.
My GPS just told me to turn left, then turn left, then turn left, then turn left.
Now you know why I vote the way I do.

My ringie-dingie thing rang yesterday, and the voice on the other end of the line said I have a room to stay in.
