    Yeah, I saw you. I mentioned to Tony that I didn’t think anyone else has a yellow F4i with tail bags lol!

    Blue Ridge Parkway to the gap

    I rode the BRP last year with my wife for a hundred miles or so, then took 421 back North and spent the night in Bristol. While I had a ton of warning about LEO presence, I didn’t see any during my time on it. And yes, the speed limit is low. But I stayed at comfortable speeds of 10-15 over, and got lucky to not have haf any trouble. I’ll tell you though, that pavement and those curves just beg you to take them faster. Its a beautiful road. And mid-week, traffic wasn’t bad. But just the threat of a ticket kind of tempered my enthusiasm. Still worth the ride though.

    Thanks Matt. I may take you up on that. I think Tony and my plans are still tbd, but rolling with you guys is an option we considered. Once we nail things down, I’ll let you know.

    No worries, Tim. I think my plans kind of changed also.
  5. I understand why you did what you did, made the call you made. And I know you have a tough job, and I don’t blame you. I just have a hard time placing all decision making on some percentages that are impossible to interpret, and are consistently completely wrong. Last weekend was a perfect example, at least in Central Ohio. Thunderstorms were called for all weekend with chances no less than 80-90%. And it didn’t rain a drop. It may rain all day tomorrow, and be beautiful Sunday. Hopefully it is. I just think radar is a better predictor than Vegas style odds, and would make the call later. All good though.
  6. You do remember last weekend, when they called for 90% chance of rain both Saturday and Sunday and it was dry as a bone? You can't make rain out decisions more than 12 hours in advance, this time of year. You have to base it off of the existing radar. Just my 2 cents.
  7. I'm in. Fast or Medium-Fast....whichever works best logistically.

    Saturday 5/5 or Sunday 5/6 ride

    What time are you headed out Justin? I still have a little to do on the FJR, but I can probably finish it off tomorrow evening after work. Maybe I could meet you in McConnelsville.

    What’s the deal with the FJR rally? I have one of those things.

    Saturday 5/5 or Sunday 5/6 ride

    Finally have the bike ready for the season and as long as the weather holds, I plan to get out this weekend. Anyone want to join for a SEO ride? I'm figuring 78, 676 and Marietta could be involved. Flexible on times and meet spots. Post up if you're interested and we'll throw something together.

    2011 Yamaha FJR

    FJRs are a different animal, Tim. People put car mileage on them. I bought my 2013 with almost 30k miles and then promptly put 10k more on it. You don’t find them with sportbike mileage. And routinely find them with 200k miles still running like a top. This seems to be a good example.

    You have room for me to tag along? I think I’m going to ride the FJR down and Shannon and Shana will trailer the Tuono. I think. She can’t leave until the 21st, and I’m wanting to get down there sooner. Plus, I rode the Snake in the dark, and in the rain last year. I’d like to ride it in a little more optimal weather.

    I'm planning to ride the FJR down, and Shannon is driving the truck. If you need to offload some gear to be hauled with 4 wheels, we can probably arrange that. And I know they, and possibly I, plan to do some hiking.

    Just confirmed our room. Shannon and her friend Shana, and I will be down. June 21-26.
