I did my first Dog Days last year and enjoyed it. The roads were superb. And the restaurants and discussions were great.  Thanks for setting this up again along with the fair warning about the rooms.  :motonoises: :great:
Silver 2011 C-14. Previous rides: KZ-400, KZ-750, KZ-1000.  Keep the rubber side down.  Ride Fast......Live Slow......

I'm glad you enjoyed yourself! Staunton is by far our favorite destination for a weekend getaway.
Something for everyone. Great riding, a very affordable motel in a great downtown setting and wonderful places to eat!
BOOK THOSE ROOMS.

I booked a room for three nights. Thur - Sat.
Desk Guy could not change the reservation name to me, so still under gsjay.
When he asked for credit card info, I told him to keep it under that name also........................                                                                                                                             just kidding  :nananana:

Will be in WV the week before and wind up in Staunton for DD. Looking forward to it!

Just called and not blocked yet. He said to call Bob in the am. Does this mean I have to open my beautiful eyes at an ungodly hour  ;)

I got tired of the winter hanging on, so I headed down to Staunton for a long weekend of riding. I mapped out new routes and for the ride down hugged the eastern side of of Skyline Drive from Front Royal to the start of the Blue Ridge Parkway. What beautiful countryside, and twisty roads.  For the ride back, I took the ultra divine route 250 into WV and headed up to Senaca Rocks. Jason knows all of this of course, which is why this place is his stomping grounds.  :motonoises: Bob says hi.
