Ok guys, last ride of 2012! You didn't "winterize" your bikes or anything silly like that did you?? Get your cold weather gear on and come out for a few hours!

Date:
Saturday, 12/29 (If the forecast is for rain, or worse, we might use 12/30 as a rain date.)

Time:
Flexible for now but likely KSU @ 10:00. Subject to change depending on interest.

Meet up:
Starbucks (Lansdowne Town Center)
19353 Promenade Dr, Leesburg, VA

Pace:
Normal/Relaxed but not parade pace.

Terrain:
All tarmac this time (unless interested folks really want to do something else).

Route:
TBD - Maybe out Lime Kiln to Snickersville and points South and West. Or perhaps up 15 and out towards the Brunswick area.

Post up if you're interested.

I might be in, depends on what the wife is up to that day. I don't winterize anything ever, so that's not even an issue.

...but you guys will have to promise not to make fun of my broken brake lever.

Right now the forecast for next Saturday is 70% chance of snow/rain mix. If the forecast doesn't improve we may have to postpone this. We'll see what the weatherman says come Wednesday or Thursday.

BTW - Who all is going to the IMS show?

Is the IMS any good? I've never been to a motorcycle show, wasn't sure if it was worth the time to browse it.

Ok, so the forecast for Saturday is not good so let's push this back one day to Sunday. As long as the roads are dry on Sunday I think we'll be okay but please check here before heading out just in case and obviously if the roads are covered in ice Sunday morning, we're not gonna go.

Updated info:

Date:
Sunday, 12/30

Time:
KSU @ 10:00am. I'll be there by 9:30 or so to have a cup of coffee.

Meet up:
Starbucks (Lansdowne Town Center)
19353 Promenade Dr, Leesburg, VA

Pace:
Normal/Relaxed but not parade pace.

Terrain:
All tarmac this time (unless interested folks really want to do something else).

Route:
TBD - Probably out Lime Kiln to Snickersville and points South and West. Or perhaps up 15 and out towards the Brunswick area.

Yeah! Looks like other than a little wind (and cold, duh) we should be in good shape for tomorrow! There will be another 4-5 people from ADVrider joining us (all friendly folks) as well so we'll have a good group.

Ed from ADV put together a good route so he's going to lead. I think most of us have ridden with him before; not sure if he'll be on his Strom or on his KLR though.

Get there a bit early if you want to enjoy a cup of coffee and shoot the shit a bit before we head out!

See you all tomorrow!
