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

Thanks for the recommendations guys. I have the TKC's on the DR's dirt setup and love them. I'll be leaving the 17's on for the trip but think it will be best if i get something a little more dirt oriented. Believe I'm running some Shinko street tires on it right now.

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

I'll do some gravel if on the wee! I do have a fresh set of tires already on the multi...so if we have great weather like we usually have then I'm riding it! (Multi)

The wee goes if the forecast is wet, and also hoping to extend the trip this year and possibly leave Sunday with Glisson and whoever else wants to make a 7 day trip out of this. We would try to plan on meeting up with the Tuesday crowd that evening just watching as the plans come together as we get closer!

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

I've got a room with Kirby for Wed and Thur. Anyone needing a roommate for Fri and Sat?

Who's riding down on Wed?

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

Ed: I'm planning on heading out Tues with Dice and at least one more and staying overnight in Abingdon, and then rolling to BRMC for Wed night. If the weather window looks like sh-t on Tues, then I'll prolly decide to roll straight thru on Wed with Dice et al. I've got reservations with Bryn (Soutie) thru Sat night in a cabin but in the event of foul weather, he's said he may decide to bail on the trip this year. If he's a no-show, I'll have an extra bed, but I can't tell you anything definitive until last minute. Sorry….

No worries on the weather, I'm sure it will be sunny dry with high temp of 78 everyday with low temps around 58*!!

Leaving Tuesday as well officially, and hopefully to arrive at the BRP camp on Wednesday is the plan.

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

Brad and I are in. The plan is to ride with the Bannister Bunch ( Or is it the Harrison Herd??) but-- subject to change.
SOOO Fair warning--DOODS!!
I have an assignment to check out a place called Conastee Falls in Brevard for a possible future place to get senile and assume room temperature (or outside temperature if she makes me live in the garage-- unless the garage is air conditioned or heated in which case it would be room temp-- or, more precisely, garage temp.).
But-- I digress.
A month ago-- Accuweather said rain every day. So, I decided to go elsewhere-- maybe spend the week in Chillicothe-- taking in the sights. Alternately, I thought about going to Yellow Springs and flashing hairy legged and armpit Lesbians until I was arrested (or beaten up).
But then-- I got sucked in to Accuweathers little mind game of predicting increasingly beautiful weather-- until-- just today, they did the "Gotcha" thing and reverted back to predictions of severe thunderstorms, earthquakes, locusts and pestilence. BASTIDS!! I hope they die from syphilis and scabies!!
In the end-- I'm going. My battery is now officially ten years old, my Pirelli's are 5 years old and should offer about as much grip as a 20 year old pencil eraser (or about as much grip as my 4 year old Avon's did at Daytona).
They are squared off from two up straight line e-way riding but-- it makes that abrupt transition at turn in's a real adrenalin rush! I knocked some cobwebs off the BMW last weekend and went for a ride (it's 2 years and 500 miles past due on it's oil change (see reference to "she" in the dying in a garage above). First curve I took it was like-- lean into the turn-- still going straight. Lean more-- still going pretty much straight! Lean even more-- whoa-- wobble wobble wobble--HELLO HI SIDE!! (almost).
With any luck, I'll even out the wear. I need an air filter plus-- I think my helmet buckle is almost rusted through.
PS-- I am bringing drugs! (Bystolic, Plavix, 81mg asprin and Chantix). If I so much get a pin prick-- I'll bleed out before you can call 911 (that is-- if anyone bothers to call 911).
Anybody got room for my BP cuff?
I saw all the warnings about Chantix so I bought a gun. I figured-- if I got this overwhelming desire to commit suicide, I didn't want to be left with having to beat my head against a cupboard. However, I decided not to bring it-- just in case I got the urge in the middle of a ride and take everyone out in a heavy braking situation(I am concerned for everyone's safety! Can I get an "AWWW and a hug?).
Hey-- Santiago-- you ain't coming--AGAIN-- are you (Biotch!). Someone tell me cuz I'm too lazy to look.
