    2018 Fall Gap Trip?

    I doubt I make this. Coming in late Thursday and riding down was doable, but with the forecast the following few days....especially Saturday, I may hold off and save the days for better weather. May never come... but 90% chance of rain and temps in the 50s exceeds my threshold for discomfort.

    You can take the Tuono, if you want. Or I take the Tuono and you ride the FJR. Its an option, anyway. Might be a chilly option.

    This should easily have blown out to sea by the time we get there mid to late next week.

    As it stands now, I’m meeting you guys in Marion on Thursday night. I’ll be slabbing down on the FJR. Probably will get in around 12-1. Plan is to room with Pauly. Should be a fun way to cap off the season!

    Possible. Let me see what I can work out.

    Where are you guys staying Friday night? Getting this trip changed is looking somewhat difficult. Currently I get in at 5:30 pm on Thursday.

    I'll be at a conference in LA and I'm supposed to get back the 18th at 5pm. But I could take the red eye the 17th and be back in time. Let me see what I can work out.

    I had a WV trip planned that fell apart due to weather. If there’s still room in this trip, I’d love to join.

    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.
  13. 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.
  14. 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.
