Shooting for 9:30 at the St. Kierns parking lot. Take I-81N to exit 119, Highbridge Park Rd. Turn Right go a mile or so and as your are coming down a long hill, lot is on the right. Kick stands up by 10.

Got it. I've stayed at the Comfort Inn a couple times at that exit. They have decent rates for FRO pass holders, btw. I think $85 was what they said.

RIght now I am looking good for the easy/old Saturday AM ride at RAC :thumbup:

I also know some fun/easy trails near the 901 BBQ bar/grill not too far from there. And that place allows RAC parking and serves GREAT cheesesteak !

Bummer. When I arrived, Jim pointed out that my rear wheel looked funny. It turns out, I had broken a spoke at Mountain Ridge and all of the spokes were now loose. Oops. I spent a while tightening them and suited up to go ride with everyone. On the very first turn, I locked up the rear brake and stalled the motor, which isn't a big deal except the the magic button decided to quit working. I told the two guys behind me to continue on and I rode back to my car. I fixed the issue (bad main ground) and waited around a while, but eventually left to head home. 6 hours of driving for 500 yards of riding. You can't win them all.




On the plus side, I stopped by a dealership and bought my wife a newer 2011 Suburban to replace her high mileage and rusting 2003 Suburban.

Sorry to lose you in the early stages, Judd.
A couple of other guys broke off very early, too.

The last 6 of us hammered away chasing Skinny-J for hours (all hail the venerable KDX!).

Got some video of a sizeable hill climb worth sharing....

Can we get Joe with the KDX to post some footage from his GoPro 5 Black camera? I'd really like to see how that image stabilization looks compared to my older camera, and to some of the even newer cams...

Is anyone in contact with KDX-Joe? Can we get him to post some video from the last ride? He had a cool camera....
