Per the weather guessers, this coming weekend looks perfect. Huge high pressure over the center of the US.

Sounds perfect, with a little dirt/gravel thrown in for good measure .

Ferret, your ride plan sounds almost like the darkside ride-in we had this past weekend at Marlinton WV. Even down to eating lunch in Monterey VA. Jammer brought us the best riding weather you could ask for.

I must have missed this. Sorry Murgie.

Yep that's the restaurant we ate at. Nice little place. It was packed and stacked when we were there.
