    How was the air back there?

    I get dirty looks from people on that road even when I'm grannying it. Maybe the people up there just have an angry look to them

    Hmmm... maybe we could take a different route tomorrow. Dead Indian takes too long though, I've taken more than a few "long lunches" because I thought I could make it to Buck Prairie snow park and back in 20-30min. Hmmm...

    Just as an FYI I had the residents of old66 and the Mt. Ashland access road call the cops because of excessive speeds and excessive noise. So I suggest changing routes, or at least cycling through Dead Indian, Greensprings, and old 66.

    (those times were on my street bike though so maybe they are nicer to cars but I doubt it)

    I don't think we were doing anything cop worthy. It was just a nice, spirited run up the mountain. I rarely even left 2nd gear.

    And I should also add, exactly how many times have you had the cops called on you on your bike? You're a bad, bad boy, Troy.

    That guy with his daughter after the overpass looked pretty upset- and I don't think it was just because he was a scraggily mountain-man. I don't know about you, but I was going from 1st to 2nd right there and making quite a bit of noise... I'd be up for a greensprings run, or hell, this is my last week here so I'd even hit up old 66 again. It has so little traffic and is such a blast, it's really hard to pass up.

    If we took it easy and stayed away from WOT on the straights, I think we could still take the twisties without raising a stink with the mountainfolk.

    Greensprings is the safest place to make a lot of noise and go fast, as long as you don't mind not having guard rails and whatnot. Oh, except the S-curves just before the summit. The people in the houses there aren't very big fans of loud vehicles, either dragg'n knees on a streetbike, or squeeling tires in a car. But other than them Greensprings is a safe bet.

    If i had ANY tires on my car i would join you guys, but I don't, and i know i wouldn't slow down even though the drift/blowout potential would be very high.

    Guard Rails? We don't need no steeenking guard rails!

    Old 66 also doesn't have many, but then again there are trees to catch you, unlike greensprings... where the cow pastures 250ft below is where you'd land.

    Dammit, it's OLD 99! Greensprings is 66

    The springs takes too long for me to join, I can probably do D.I. though. Should we just plan on meeting at the Chevron at 12:30 again and then decide where we want to go?

    If anyone else can get there then, I'm down, but how about later this evening? That way we could make the greensprings/dead indian loop.



    ...BTW, Cade called it Old 66 first...

    Where's the suby Marty? .... I could bring my dig. camera and get a few pics- but three subies would be better than 2 subies/ 1 BMW for that purpose, even though I know you said you need to wring that one out a tad...

    Dammit, that's Troy, not Cade! I'd be down with an evening run around the loop. I don't get off work until 6 though.

    So saturday is rolling around and I just found out that I don't have to work this weekend. How does the schedule look for the up-pipe install. It's a shame to have that thing sitting around for 7 months without slapping it on.
