Buy a metal cover for an electrical box. They measure 4″x4″x 1/16″. cost is $3 or $4. tie a string in one of the screw holes. Make the string long enough to reach your handle bars. That way you won’t forget it, and after you rite your bike you can pull the plate up and store it somewhere.February 28, 2018 at 8:22 pm in reply to: Movie titled "Winter's Bone" starring Jennifer Lawrence #8236

My FNG year was 2009. The movie was in 2010. It is possible “Stray Dog” was on the Run in 09.
So much going on my FNG year. The years run together after awhile.
I’m rolling into Warner Robins Wed. evening. One other rider from Southern Rt. fuel team will also be there this year. They are asking for volunteers to help with the traveling VN wall Thurs. morning. Probably signup for that. Not sure when the Volvo truck will head down from Va.. If they leave on Wed. I might meet up with them around Wytheville. I’ll check tomorrow to see when they will leave Va.
Arrived home last night around 2100 hrs. 7464 total miles.
I can tell you what works best for my wife and me. We wear polyester “Tactical pants”, fishing shirts, underwear, t-shirts and socks. Fishing shirts have sun block built in. All can be washed in tub or sink, hung over air conditioner, and almost always dry in the morning. We wear a set of cloths, pack 2 extra pair of pants, 2 shirts, 5 under shirts, underwear and socks. Our favorite tactical pants are Spec-4. Like the pocket configuration. Everything is in front pockets hence I’m not setting on a wallet and less chance of losing anything. My wife doesn’t need to take a purse anymore. As a side note. Don’t laugh, but I sometimes wear a athletic supporter. Helps keep “the boys in place” We share the top bag in tour pack, use 1 saddlebag for overflow, and dedicate 1 saddlebag for cold weather gear. Top bag on tour pack is for rain gear. We take 1 set of wicking type long underwear, a fleece vest, and fleece jacket. It’s all about layering and light weight. Plus all insulate better when wet, and dry the fastest. Extra cold weather gloves. Wet is bad enough, but COLD and WET with a hundred miles to go is not pleasant.April 26, 2017 at 4:54 pm in reply to: Is it me, or has there less posting on this site???? #5065
Might be a good time to start subject specific threads.
1) What to pack
3)Riding in pack formation
4)For H-D riders…knowing how to start bike without fob …extra key and fob
Many more subjects, should start now..8 and a wake-up before I head West
Got it. Would make for a long day or will this be over how many days ? Good rides. The first time I did Rt. 16 was around 1983. The road was a little narrower then, and I was in a long nose Western Star pulling a 42 ft. flatbed. Total length 60 feet long. I was on Rt. 52 last fall between Wytheville and Bland Va. The section between Big Walker and Bland had deteriorated into a lot of lose gravel. Maybe it’s been resurfaced by now. Lots of twisties in that part of the country. Burkes Garden off Rt 61 east of Tazewell is different.
I have to ask: what route is “Claw of the Dragon”? I’ve been on Rt. 16 from Tazewell to Marion Va. which is referred to as” The Backbone of the Dragon”.
My wife Deb. (Bluebird) and I will be leaving Ohio with the bike in tow, arriving in Phoenix late afternoon on 12/28/2016. Will be spending some time with a few of the Southern Rt. team. Probably head back to Gods country Jan. 1 st or 2 nd. Planning to ride a little with Homer, Hot Rod, and hopefully Geoff. Would be great to see those who were not able to make Kerrville this year.
