Mike,
If IRRC you didn't get banged up all that bad, did you?

ATGATT works! 

Them pesky deer can ruin a nice day! Hopefully we all can avoid them during Dog Days..............

I'm already starting to think about the Gelato in Staunton!

Of course the gelato will be after dinner at Snapdragon Pho.

Yes my 14 years old, Aerostich, Two Piece, Roadcrafter suit did its job well.  The saddle bags and fairing took the brunt of the initial impact with the road.  As I rolled down the road I did not make contact with any guard rails or sign posts so what bruising I got was minimal.  I even had sense enough to keep my hands against my chest so I hardly scuffed my gloves.

Will someone volunteer to run down to the Visitors Center and pick up some visitors guides?
The center is down near the fancy Hotel.

You might need a dozen or 18 to share with the group.

tks,

See  :beerchug:everyone around 2
Twenty years from now you will be more disappointed by the things that you didn’t do than by the ones you did do. So throw off the bowlines. Catch the trade winds in your sails. Explore. Dream. Discover – Mark Twain.

On Friday, JR, Jason & I rode down to Bedford, Va to visit "The National D-Day Memorial".  Here are a few of the photos I took.

Great job organizing the event Jason.  :beerchug: Got to meet a lot of new folks not in COG.  It's everything you advertised it to be, and I'm really glad I finally made it down.  :motonoises:
