VA BEACH VA
My wife and I checked the weather ... it looks like rain upon starting (40% showers), which becomes scattered showers at 30% a bit closer to Fred-burg. By the time we leave Fred-burg, it's supposed to have stopped raining there, though we may ride back into some scattered showers around down toward VA Beach.

I'll go either way, not only to help launch this inaugural event but also the check out the weatherproof abilities of my new Klim Kaddidlehopper pants. My wife said her going would depend on how hard it's raining when we leave ... but that she may go anyway as she's been looking forward to this quick trip (having something to do with how rarely we ride short distances).

So, Scott ... if it is indeed raining in the am ... you might want to checkout how far west it's raining before you execute a "candy-ass" cancellation maneuver. wink rofl

Still 11:00 am, still Blackstone, yes?

I spent a fair bit of Q-time at Morton's today, and the bike is hummin'. Ditched the wimpy-ass scooter horn for something more, ahh, robust; the 6K is done slightly ahead of sched; and I've loaded up on precious bodily (maintenance) fluids. Now for a nice steamin' hot cup 'o joe....

Craig, I concur! The proper execution of a "candy-ass" maneuver is obtainable only by a select few. It takes years of training to acquire the mental fortitude and degree of skin thickness required to withstand the ensuing ribbing for attempting such a maneuver. thumbsup

Fathom- yup, still Blackstone. Still 11.

Interesting factoid I discovered by looking at everyones profile:

All of the people attending our little event enjoy motorcycles and coffee. What a small world.

Sun is shining ... and the radar is looking pretty clear between here and Fred'burg. We're getting ready to leave, having a morning cup, a small bite to eat, and then hopefully leaving by 8:00.

The sun is shining, I am IN! Heading out around 8. GPS tells me my route takes about 3 hours. Looking forward to seeing and meeting everyone!

Just joined in the spring, and am happy tp see this event so close by hope you don't mind a last minute addition heading down from the Annapolis area, it's still pretty foggy around here! I like motorcycles and coffee too

I'm afraid Donna will have to sub for me -- got some bad Indian food last night, and am feeling like I've passed my "sell by" date (as did the chicken in the dumplings, or so it would seem). Very bummed, as I'd g-mapped a nice route that roughly doubles the travel time and dodges the slab. Have a cup for me; I'll try hard to make the next one.
