You all do realize that people bike on that road up to snowshoe. There are also many people that drive up and down that road, so cutting some of those turns is a bit reckless. Please drive with a little more sense when around a resort like that.

Looks like there was a decent turnout. I would have made the trip if there wasn't a home game for Marshall.

Yes, I do realize. Realize more than anyone on this forum. That's why I took it upon myself to take lead and make sure people could have fun without worrying about cars/bikers. Don't forget we all had 2-way radios.

With all that said, yes, your very right. Driving cross lanes is dangerous and I don't recommend to most, especially on a road your not familiar with. Due to the the situation and the fact that I know the road like the back my hand, I took upon myself to drive like that. Sorry if I offended you but don't take out on rest of group. I'm really the only one that was probably driving like that due to my experience with the road.

I wasn't calling any individual out nor taking it out on the group, I just wanted to voice my opinion about the traffic in the area. Just looking out for the well being of the group and community that this forum represents.
If my post made anyone mad, I apologize if I sounded blunt.

Had much fun as well. Nice to see how many came along, especially considering the weather.
Just now recovering, considering I got up at 2am Sunday to drive to Summit Point for a track day with the Mercedes Club and back that night.
Overall, about 850 miles driving in 2 days plus the track time eek
Well worth it though Smile

Completely agree with this!!  A mishap would certainly kill a good cruise.

had a good time. hope you all didn't wait for me too long at dinner, I've driven that road enough that its lost its luster (maybe not as much as Thurston Very Happy ), plus we had to set up camp out on the ridge.

Holy crap was it cold Sat night

Not gona lie we did look for ya after you disappeared. Waited about 10 or 15 min while Thurston drove back down the hill to make sure you didn't wreck or something. Its cool though. Just next time if ya could let someone know before heading out. We have had trouble before with people just leaving and not saying anything and then the rest of us are waiting for no reason.
