First off...GNYHUF, I needs yer phone # since I could not get a hold of ya this sunday ;)

Anyhow, spent about 3 hours on the bike. Took a ride to the beach but it was crouded as hell so we rode up General Booth till we got to Princess Anne. Then we headed to Pongo. Nice place down there. Lots of farm/swamp and big ass houses :D
We stopped at a grocery store in North Carolina to get a bit to eat before heading back.
The only bad thing is that some of the roads were dirty in the corners and I also heard from a friend that there have been 2 guys that lost their licence for a year when they got caught speeding in Pongo. Soooo, we rode around right about the sped limit (most of the time)
Fun was had non the less :yesnod

The weather was perfect this weekend. I was in Richmond all day on Saturday and I think there were more bikes than cars on the road.:riding

I think I saw no less that 200 bikes on the road in the time I was out. Every kinda bike you can think of was out there. The only thing I didnt see what italian sport bikes but then again they cost more money than the average sportbike ridder can afford.
Anyhow, cruiser riders are A OK with me. They all waved back with the exception of 2 or 3. Infact there were more sportbikes that did not wave out there than cruisers :)

Yeah, everyone seemed to be in "waving" mode on Sunday with the exception of a few, and even those I'd put down to the rider not seeing me. :)
I also got a ton of head nods :)

I would but this is my sis's first bike and she has only ridden it a few times last year. That's why I'm bring my R1 to ride with her a little so that she gets the feel for being on the bike again. No mountain roads for her until she shows she can handle it:scared

I understand that. Maybe take her to Pine Mountain. Not really a mountain but some nice views and a smooth road over it. It has some curves but nothing you wouldn't find on any other backroad anywhere. Ya'll should check it out, plus it is pretty close to columbus.

Yeah, five of us went for a Sunday morning ride too. Now, I just need
to get tires for the Gap. I can start to see the line in the middle of the
Dunlop.
