    OK guys let’s try this again…. I’m trying to get the word out early for next summer. We should try to figure out 2 days one for the ride and one for a rain date. This way we can get time off work for those of us that need to.

    I’d say a week day so there’s less traffic. I’ll do some research and see when everything opens up for the season. The first trip last year we went a week too soon, and there was nowhere to eat or restrooms open.

    I’m down for it. For weekdays – any Monday and most Thursdays are good for me, other than that – I usually work Saturday, and off on Sunday.

    Mondays are good for me, or a Sunday.

    OK guys after checking the schedule at Skyline I have picked 2 dates. First date is June 10th with a rain date of June 24th. Both dates are a Monday which should have the lest amount of traffic. We can work out a time to meet as we get closer. Let me know if these days work for everyone.

    @dubv Without promising anything, I might be able to make it out there. I’ll be in NC in June anyway and should have the 1000rr i’m picking up fixed up and repaired by then.

    Well I found a nice 1000rr, it’s a 2007, and runs flawlessly. Idiot gunned it from a stop sign and skid it down the road and now mommy won’t pay the payments and he has to sell it. lol If we can work out a price, i’m picking it up, and rebuilding it over the winter.. If everything goes right I should have it by the 2nd week of January (going to vegas first week), and then can start tearing it apart. I’ll keep you updated but i’m going to NC with it when it’s done, might as well stop by and partake in the festivities. I’ll keep you posted.

    @sk33m101 I believe @hubbard2a lives near the eastern shore you guys might be able to meet up.

    @borderline4laska ABSOLUTELY!!! The more the merrier?!
    Skyline Drive is a 105-mile road that runs the entire length of the National Park Service’s Shenandoah National Park in the Blue Ridge Mountains of Virginia, generally along the ridge of the mountains. It’s definitely one of those “bucket list” rides for most motorcyclists like Deals Gap. If you can make it it’s well worth the trip!

    I watched that whole video.. that road is amazing. Id really like to go. And also Im going to deals gap the first week of April. It will probably be a 2 or 3 day thing. Ive never been there, but Im really excited. Let me know what days you guys figure out and Ill look into getting the time off. VA is a 10 hour drive there for me so.. Id probably come a day early and crash in a hotel for a night , or pitch a tent or something Lol. Thats what I plan on doing for deals gap too because after riding so long Id rather rest before riding the good roads.
