My name is Herman.

Most of the time, we will be there around 10 AM ...and stay there for 1 -1.5 hour ..and then go on the bike to find a place to get something to eat...because the food is not really great at Poe's.

This mine. ..the photo below is with the New Seat.

I'm in Norfolk and have been thinking about going to the Quaker Steak and Lube in Newport News. I heard its mostly cruisers but I'd like to check it out. I think every Wednesday is their bike night.

No it wasn't me. I don't know anyone else with the RC and I've only rode with one once, guy had flat black fairings on his. Would love to ride with some though. I normally ride out Hickory to Ballahack Rd. and such .

Erbgottie,
Are you in Dayton, next to Bridgewater, Harrisonburg? If so, I'm only 30 miles away from you. We should get together for a ride, I went up 250 to Monterrey, down 220 to Franklin WV, then 33 to Harrisonburg over Memorial Day.

Oh yeah !!!!

You guys need to get together most definitely, and get the roads warmed up for us !!! There is one other guy up in sugar grove that would be interested but I can't think of his screen name. I'll remember and hook him up on here too!!! He is from Tidewater but got mover to SG, and LOVES IT !!!

I have been home the last 2 weekends and Lord willing be home for good in 2 to 4 weeks !! :D Nt long after that I'm gonna be out there with you guys. Might take a week or two to get my bike strength back but I'll be there :D

RIDE SAFE GUYS !!!!!! Hoovy

Hoovy, glad you are getting stronger. I'm organizing an informal rally in September for the CBX boys in the ICOA , I'm tentatively looking at Monterrey, or perhaps Franklin WVA, if you are up for it, I'd love to have you join us. We ride all day, eat well, drink beer at night.......................HEAVEN!!!!! it's always a help to have more "local" tour guides to show off our local "honey holes" :D

Just trying to let people know who are in the general VA area, there is going to be a CCS/ASRA races on the 24/25 of September down at VIR. I was wanting to go on the 24th (Saturday) just wondering if anyone else would be interested, let me know if you are and we can try and set something up.

You are mistaken...it has been enjoyed and put to good use. That bike taught me everything I know and if you went to the CCS races at VIR in September you would have witnessed a decent demonstration of the lessons taught, but on a RWB 1000RR.

Anybody still around the Richmond area? I'm picking up another RC after selling mine like an idiot to the guy who goes to bike night. Unfortunately this one will be all track. But the gf and I go to QSL quite frequently, she rides a naked bed linered Ninja 650 and I'm usually on the Super Duke. We rode an orange KTM supermoto there a few times last year.

Sad in my book!!!

It may be used for what it is built for but not attractive to be at a bike show. And if you think riding the track and sliding across the track destroying your bike is cool, we just have different tastes. I have spent MANY hours at VIR and have a couple track records so I know the thrill of the track. I even have a east coast championship in American Iron. I think a dedicated track bike is the way to go there. I remember seeing the 650 and thinking " WHAT?" But hey dif strokes for dif folks, and that was different :) Love the duke but don't remember seeing it. ENJOY !!!! HOOVY
