Hooter's Fall Show

Well, I decided to enter the fall Hooter's show and see how I do. Today there were more Sporty's than any other class, including the 2000 purple 1200 chromed out sport that took first in the summer show.

I bumped up one spot from the summer show taking 2nd in the 1200 custom class, purple won again.

(I won Best in Class against the same purple sporty at the UAW-GM show)

7th Annual UAW-GM show

After the ride yesterday I remembered about the UAW-GM car & bike show. Since there was some rain on the ride I didn't finish cleaning the Sporty until 3a.m.

I arrive at the show and find out that it is an open judging. By the time all of the custom choppers and other bikes arrived I figure I wouldn't get anything but to my surprise I won the Best in Class award.

Good friends & a great ride

September Skyline Drive

The Virginia XL Forum enjoyed our best ride yet through the mountians on Skyline Drive.

Nothing broke on R.D.'s bike and aparently his APB has been recinded and was not hassled by the MAN, so it was a bonus day!

Except for a little rain I had a great ride, met some more great people had a great day and can't wait to do it again.

Just a Sunday in the Mountians....

R.D., Andy, Mike and myself went on a nice little run through some twisty backroads towards Skyline Drive. Clear blue skies and cool temps made for a perfect ride. Probably saw well over 200 other bikers that had the same idea we had. Every time I ride that area I just can't get over how beautiful the vistas are.

Had a good laugh at a rest stop when a federal park ranger stopped and searched R.D. when he thought R.D. had just lit up a joint. I guess he just looked too dangerous to leave alone.

This was a good run to get ready for the ride on the 17th when all the Virgina XLF riders meet up in Orange for another Skyline run.
