We're riding on Sat instead...

And rather than Liberty, me and Kazlab are going to ride to the Mountains for the day.

You still in Sal?

We'll meet at the the Citgo (i believe) on 15/501. Take highway 64 to pittsboro, and get off on 15/501. At the top of the exit ramp, you can see the store (fairly good size gas station). We'll depart from there back onto 64, and hit 421 straight to the mountains.

So once again, post up bitches.

Come on you poseurs...it's time to hit the mountains...
I know that area like the back of my hand so it will be a good time. We can take some backroads, the Blue Ridge for the scenery, head toward Valle Crucis and in between where all the ski lodges are...Don't care...I have til Sunday morning to get back :2devil

It's almost exactly 3 hours from Raleigh to the Blue Ridge Parkway at the top of the Mountain at Deep Gap. From there we can head anywhere you want.
Thats with a couple of pit stops. Its pretty much all straight highway, 64W to 421N with a merge of 421N and I-40W from Greensboro to the West side of Winston Salem and then 421N peels off again straight to Deep Gap.

I've never done 3 straight hours non stop (for the most part anyway) on anything. Longest straight ride was to Myrtle Beach at around 2.5 hours on the way down.

6 hours just riding there and back, and probably 3 to 5 riding around/resting there. I can feel the pain already.

So are you in Sal?

I am not gonna tell you its an easy ride. It is long. But the scenery is great. Boone is a college town for those that like college girls (sal) and its an experience.
The problem when me and Nate rode out was Nate had to be back by like 5:30 and he tells me this at the base of Grandfather Mountain at around 2:00 in the afternoon. So we jumped on it and after a straight shot down I-40 at 80MPH the whole way, we made it just in time. My hands were curled, my feet were numb and my body ached. But damn that was one of the best experiences I've had. So knowing I can take my time, it will be a breeze. And I do thank ya nate for going out there with me.
Hell, I've done the day ride myself once. Not to the top but just about, to the foothills in Wilkesboro. Another 20 minutes from there to the top.

Leaving out at 9:00am sharp from the Citgo i described earlier in the post. Should be back by 9pm (i guess? Kazlab???).

And wake your ass up early so you can go with us. To hell with sleeping the daylight hours away. I'd like to ride up there before the temps reach 10,000 degrees. Leather gets damn hot. :D
