The annual OR gap trip

Recommended Posts

I am wondering if we will be doing a OR gap invasion trip this year? Or is that not going to happen this year? Usually this was planned by Casper and he seems to have abandoned this site that he created. What do you guys think?

If you plan it, they will come.

Last couple of times someone else planned it. So if someone steps up, it will happen.

Okay. What dates would work for the most people? Do we stay in one place or a different location each night?

Dates don't matter to me. I vote nomad. We drive past too many good roads just to get to Fontana.

I'm looking at going down the week/weekend after the 4th of July. Sometime  between the 6th and 12th. Very tentative haven't gotten time off approved yet. Not planning a group thing because I might be meeting other friends down there. So like I said it's a very tentative date and plan. Mostly likely 2 nights in the area and the rest nomad back up the BRP for the trip home.

My plan for July is to ride to the west coast and ride the PCH. Only have tentative plan at this point.

That’s because of you and Becky’s cruise addiction! Lol My plan is to camp and take as long as I need.

WV.  Stay a night in Elkins, and a night or 2 in Buckhannon and explore.  Pretty much every state route in the area is wiggly with little traffic.

I agree with Tony. I plan to spend time exploring WV this season. It's right here. Why go all the way to the gap? If I miss the gap.. I can go next year.

I rather enjoy the gap areas atmosphere especially the last couple times I've gone down and stayed at the resort/campgrounds right at the dragon. Last fall I went down by myself and camped in my little tent and enjoyed the fidey races and camp fire at night with a lot of like minded folks. Get up in the morning listening to sights and sounds of bikes and riders. Head to the grill fro a hot breakfast till the morning dew lifts and temps come up. Kinda relaxes me just thinking about it. Meet a few new friends every time i do that. Take a couple days to get there(twisties), couple nights at the dragon campground then a couple days ride home (twisties)sounds like the perfect extended weekend to me.

The Monongahela NF and the G.W./Jefferson NF areas of WV have some GREAT Big Bike ADV off road-ish :bikefall:style routes that have easy exit access to

Hotel/Food/Beer/Shower/Rest/Beer. Also great asphalt twisties.

I did have a bladder stone removed recently. They found it when they cut my nut off.

I think your anesthesia was playing tricks on you. They said your nut was the size of a bladder stone.

As you know by the pic on your phone of my one remaining nut that is not an issue. If you are still unsure ask The Whale. It knows very well which of us have bigger balls.

I can hustle that bike just fine. I just do it with a little self-preservation instinct. Your skull, unlike your scrotum, is chock full o' nuts.

I road that bike like I did for 75 thousand miles so and did just fine. I will text you the number of the doc that removed my ball, he will give it to you. You need it.
