In Sugar Grove, Virginia

On 29 October I stopped by a small market in Sugar Grove, Virginia, and met a guy who said he is from Florida. Was riding a 2012 Wee - black. Looked almost like mine except his had what appeared to be high-grade engine / crash guards and same-brand skid plate. A very nice fellow. We chatted for a few minutes but I didn't think to ask if he frequents this site. Was traveling with a guy on a HD. A Sportster, I think, but I didn't pay much attention to it, though at a glance it too looked nice. They seemed to be having a good time.

I see many Stroms on Highway 16 in the Marion, Virginia area. A couple / few weeks ago at Hungry Mother Lake visitor I chatted with a guy on a modified SV. Guy had made his own side cases and I think it had been converted to a single-seat bike (if they all aren't single-seat). Said he'd had a Strom before, I think, but found it a bit too tall (I'm guessing SVs are shorter). He and his two buddies, all from the Atlanta area, I think, really studied my Wee before we said our goodbyes and parted ways.

Was that Suger Grove WEST Virginia, next to the Navy Base for sale? The rider you met wouldn't have been me but I ride through there on occasion.

Wow, someone else knows where that base is? My ex-wifes best friend & maid of honor, her dad was the commander of that base in the early 80's until he had a MI and passed away. The daughter got married to a cook on the base then she passed from cancer. I've NEVER met anyone who even knew the communications base was even there!

One trip out in a VW in the winter, we stopped on the Virginia side at the general store at the bottom of the mountain. I asked the guy what the weather was like at the top...he replied snow for sure....I got in the car and told my wife he had said it was clear up on top....I took a few rib shots as the snow started to fall and it would have been ok but I got my foot stuck between the pedals and darn near went into a guardrail at the top when I couldn't hit the brake to slow down!!

good times.....
