Larry, thanks for putting this together! I'm in for sure, although I'm still not running a CT on my 2019 DCT. But my buddy Richie said he booked us in the bridal suite so I just couldn't resist. See you there!

Glad you can make it. I went to Darkside rides spring and fall for a few years before I really converted. I had tried one a few years before, but didn't like the Toyo Proxis tire. I sold it to Darksider #29 and ended up #1199. You'll probably make a lot of guys jealous sharing the bridal suite with Richie. Rose petals and bubble baths!

Yes, that Richie does make 'em jealous...if he just wasn't so shy...

I went DS on my first four Goldwings...my number was 975...got lots of miles and smiles out of those CTs!

I just love the way the DCT handles with the stock tires, so haven't been motivated to make the move...yet.

Hope to see some other DCTs in Chapmanville and compare notes!

It is 50 days till the ride in. The weather is getting nicer, finally. I noticed, looking through the Darkside forum threads, that this is the first post in 10 days. That is awfully quiet compared to the old days. Why is that I wonder. All that wisdom and humor that used to be shared here is silent. Has it all been used up? All the old names that were on here all the time are almost never seen. I'll bet nobody can remember the last video posted of a task being done, a bike rolling down the road, or a guy falling off a rock! I know the guys I'm thinking of are getting old, but I think they're still around. Maybe if they can't talk politics they have nothing to say? Well anyway I miss the good old days as much as everyone does, but here's to the future. Counting down to the ride in.
Hmmm. Us old farts do lurk a lot. And once in a while I do post something helpful. Anyway, thought you might enjoy some videos from the Spring DSRI in 2017, riding one of the best motorcycling roads in the country. Sorry for the wet conditions, but we had fun anyway!

Hi Elrod, hope life is treating you good. And it's amazing I can ride these roads all day, but can't even watch one minute of video without getting dizzy.

Something I learned from Murgie: NEVER turn off your camera!

Elrod, Larry leads us down gravel roads like the start of this almost every DS ride we're on.

Anyone else notice that Elrod shared videos but didn't say he'd come to the ride in? Like to see him. Been a while. Same for that other guy, Murgie! Richard, Joe, Kevin and others afraid of commitment?

Trying to work it out. I have had a few things occur in my life that has prevented participation in a while. Sorry to disappoint folks.
