A shout to all DC Metro V Rodders..Well it's getting to be really nice around here, even though summer doesn't want to leave. On our last ride with the Va crew and MD riders, oh!!!and Biker Bill from Pa...there was some interest in getting together for a ride towards Skyline Dr. The date in mind is the 20th or the 21st Oct. The leaves will probably be in full Fall foilage or close to it. I'm thinking meet at Hooters in Fairfax @10:00 AM either day is fine. I'm thinking lunch Mexican or Italian after the ride. So get your days in and see how many of us can get together for the Fall Ride to Skyline DR...

Alright which day will it be?????

Skyline Dr Ride..

Lets go with the 20th. I'd like to get a head count and see how many of us are going. I'm hoping this ride would generate more interest to get out and ride before it gets really cold. The Revolution engine just loves that cold intake temps...so lets get out there and ride. I'm open to any suggestions on meet time.10:00 or 11:00 AM at Hooters in Fairfax or at the stealer. Breakfast at Denny's anyone..???? Anybody..??? Maybe I can post this in the general V Rod section and see if more riders from the area can see it.....

I'm interested. Lets see if I can get a kitchen pass... I'll grab SandorSnow (got 4 kids) and my buddy Jarhead on an '03 and see if they'll make the ride.
Note: My Jarhead bro (I was regular Army) and I did Skyline a few weeks ago. $10 at the gate to make the ride...

The earlier we meet the better. I suggest we take 211 to Thornton Gap. The switchbacks on 211 heading up to the gap are awesome, and the southern part of the drive is much better from here. Just my 2¢!!

FWIW - I just came through Skyline from end to end - the southern half was in mid-paving and had gravel pressed into asphalt as a surface - and no lines. Call ahead or stick to the northern half.... :2cents:

We can meet Bill @ Front Royal then head south. It's up to you guys if you want to get off at Thornton Pass just to run down and back up the Mt. back onto Skyline Drive. To me it's worth it, I love carving the switchbacks.

Looks like I'm alone on this one. Don't know what's happened to all of the Md. riders, we won't have many more days like this left in the year.

We'll be @Denny's @8:30 if you're up for breakfast on Sat. Maybe we'll p/u some stragglers on the way out to the mountains. Can't beat the weather for mid October. See you on Sat...
