Epic Spring Ride West
First big ride of the season!
I will be at BUZZ COFFEE 830am
LEAVE BUZZ COFFEE 930am for the ride
This will be a long one to kick off the season, 150 mile ride! For those who did the October ride in the rain, this is a similar route to that rainy day.
ROUTE = http://rideplanner.harley-davidson.com/rideplanner/road.jsp?roadId=600089&locale=en_US
110cc + Vintage and Modern Friendly pace. 45mph cruising speed and 55mph on the faster roads.
Safety Gear- if your new to the group, its nice to see at least a DOT helmet, pants, good shoes. Jackets are suggested. No fake helmets and flip flops please.
We will roll through Clifton, Fairfax, Snickerville Turnpike to Mt. Weather, up and over the windy mountain, and back down to Marshall for Lunch. then back through Centreville and from there we can split, or I will be taking the Fairfax Parkway back to Alexandria and back up to Buzz.
This is a fun ride and the roads are great, once out of the busy area, there is mostly open space for just us to enjoy and ride, few lights and stop signs!
TOP OFF GAS BEFORE BUZZ - 1st Gas stop will be Marshall about 2/3 through the ride
CHECK TIRE PRESSURE
CHECK OIL LEVEL
HAVE A BACK UP PLAN - Have someone you can call if you have a break down or any issues. The group has no way to get you and your bike home (AAA is only $130 a year for 100 miles of towing for car, motorcycle, scooter)
Look forward to seeing everyone, kick stands up at 930am, get there prior if you want some coffee and snack :-D
