I took a deposit on my APE last week. That bike is blast as you know, but when you're as tall as a giraffe the ergos just don't play so nice.

I'm not going to lie it feels weird being on the street again.

There are a few others in your area that know the roads I was telling you about. We used to ride every weekend when I lived up there.

Back in the late 90's and up until 2006 or so there was a huge sportbike scene that would head to the mountains every weekend.

Sperryville at one time believe it or not used to be bustling with activity.

There still are quite a few people around but none like to hit the mountains at a good clip.

This is from one of our rides last year during a warm day in December. The East side in VA was pretty dry but we had to slow it up on the WV side as there was some damp seepage coming down the mountain.

I recognize 33 outside of Harrisonburg.

I'll bring a few elbow draggers with me. Burncycle is a member here, and that can ride circles around most blindfolded.

Yeah... That was before I got way too fat to ride fast. Too old too, that last off back at the end of '14 took me a while to recover from and its slowed me down something fierce.

Sunday the the 15th is Bikes and Breakfast in Clifton. Unfortunately, that's more my speed now.

You'll be fine once you get back in a group that rolls. Let me know and I'll bring the Apes and R1's out for a mountain track day

Nothing like the sound of v4's and Crossplanes thundering through the mountains
