brp tomorrow early am

I will be heading up to the BRP tomorrow morning, monday the 14th. I will try to get some interesting pics while I am up there. I'll be on a gray wee, flat black Scorpion full face and white and black Scorpion cool rod mesh jacket.
If you see me give the secret V wave and I will stop to talk for awhile. If you don't stop I will follow you until you stop or I have to go to work.:biggrinjester:

It just figures, now that I am old and wise enough to stop and smell the roses, I would lose my sense of smell.

Enjoy the ride Mike!
I'm hoping to do the whole BRP sometime this summer, Skyline drive is just the small taste I've done so far.
Are you camping or hoteling it?

Good luck on the trip and enjoy. I rode the BRP last year. Its a very nice ride. :beatnik:

It's kind of strange, how the mountains pay us no attention at ll. You laugh or cry and the wind just keeps on blowing.

I won't be camping I live close enough to ride in the morning and get home in time for 2nd shift. BTW Jersey? what exit? I am from Monmouth county.

It just figures, now that I am old and wise enough to stop and smell the roses, I would lose my sense of smell.

Maybe I'll see you up there some time. There are quite a few V- stroms on the BRP.

What time do you expect to be where?

I went up about 6:30 Saturday morning, from my house, up 276, south on the BRP to the Highest Point Overlook - no traffic, save for a ST1300 who waved me past.

I will have more time than you to ride tomorrow so pick a route that is good for you and we can ride. Yes to Rosman, 64 and 178 ,7:30?
I will check back in the morning.

Mike,

Had a great time.

Thanks for indulging my weakness for Charlie's Creek Road.

Sorry I had to bail so early, just made it to the office by 9:35.

Maybe next time I'll meet you in Walhalla.
