Thanks for the offer Chris... you were just a little to late. Got an offer already, she's not real pretty and her name is Ron. Sorry Ron just kidding about the looks.

Take the time off. Sleep on my couch. We'll ride down together.

Re: 14th annual 2014 BRP Trip After Labor Day Trip

IN! I just need to figure out when I can come down. My son's 5th birthday is on Thursday. I might just make the trip Friday morning. Gonna check with the wife about what the plan if for his B-Day and I'll get back with ya.

Parker: When do you plan on leaving?

One of these years the dates will work out right so I can leave with the Tuesday crowd.

….but for those yearning for a fun DS ride on gravel, check out High Knob Rd running from Norton to Fort Blackmore, VA. I'm surprised that there's even a street view by Google, but check it out. Think we can talk Dice into this adventure?

https://www.google.com/maps/@36.8668153,-82.593385,13z

High Knob Rd. Looks inviting!!!

I'm definitely in for this! I didn't get to hit any gravel last year and I think a little part of me died.

Re: 14th annual 2014 BRP Trip After Labor Day Trip

Well after much debate, and some prodding from Geo and Glisson, looks like we are gonna be joining this year. Not sure what day we will be coming down. I'm hoping we can make the ride Tuesday with everyone. If not we'll make it down Wednesday for sure.


For the guys that plan on hitting gravel what kind of tires are you running? 80% street 20% dirt or something more aggressive?

Damn!!! There's gonna be so many riders this year--many of them new (to me, anyway)--we're gonna require name tags, at least for the benefit of some of the older folks….either that or you'll just have to accept the fact that I'll be addressing most of you as "Hey dude" for the bulk of the trip.

I'm not at all uneasy telling you that I've always thought of you as a younger, better looking version of Fabio….

I run the TKC's on my KTM 640, they work great in gravel and on the road just short tire life.
I do plan to ride the KTM down at the sacrifice of comfort to and from vs the Norge.

currently i am running a dirt knobbie on the front and a trailwing on the back of the drz400..... if i ride the DRZ, i'll probably change out the front for Heidenau K60 Scout Front Tire http://www.sporttour.com/products/34...ut-Front-Tire/

if i resurrect the Vstrom, it has Shinko 705's on it

Awesome! It'll be good to ride with ya!

80% - 20% are fine for the gravel I've seen down there. I've run Tourances down there with no problem. I have Tourance Nexts on now and am curious to see how they'll do.
