Recently got back from a trip to Deal's Gap, good time ! Great roads coming and going, found some stuff I'd love to revisit. Ended up with 1335 miles, 1/8 inch chicken strips and great memories. Back roads all the way, only had to jump on the 4 lane for a few miles.
It was Mazda Miata weekend at the gap, awesome good looking sport cars, club members said about 450 - 500 were expected to show, all hotels in the area were sold out. They were a good bunch and allways used the pullovers when I came up on them. On the down side, I didn't see a single other Z bike all week.
I pack 4 sets of undies, socks and t-shirts, shorts, sweats and shoes, toiletries; it's really all I need, traveling light but comfortably. I squeeze an electric vest in there for the fall weather.
somewhere in the south west corner of VA
