Video: 2018 Mid Atlantic Meet
« on: June 27, 2018, 07:37:31 pm »
I spent last week down in Asheville, NC at the Mid Atlantic Meet. It is a meet for the M109R Forum. I currently have a leak from the threads on one of the fittings for my air ride on my M109. My Wife's Spyder is in the shop for some warranty work that is taking WAY too long. Since I had extra room in my trailer, I brought both the Magnum and the Connie. We had 5 ridding days there. 1 day was rained out, so I rode the Connie 2 days and the Magnum 2 days. (My wife prefers the Magnum for 2 up riding. If it was just me, I would have only took the Connie. I had so much fun riding it down there! It just doesn't get much better than a Concours on the twisty mountain roads in that area!

Before anyone questions why I trailered the bikes down, I run the raffle for the meet. I had lots of boxes for the give aways. Needed a trailer for all of that stuff alone. We also do easy ups, chairs, coolers, grills, etc in the parking lot of the hotel in the evenings after the rides. I normally bring extras for the guys that ride in. You will see what I mean in the video below.

It is just a quick edit with some video and pictures mixed in. Let me know what you think.

Looks like some beautiful country!  Out here, the hills are brown and dry.  No rain, but every day is a good day to ride.  I like the pic of the “ball and chain”!

Yeah, he is a friend of mine that I ride with all the time. He lives about 20 mins down the road from me. They got Married on Thursday in Maggie Valley. 2018 was the 11th Annual Mid Atlantic Meet, but that was the first ever wedding during the meet.

Anyone notice the radar on my phone in the last video clip at the very end of the video?

Not until you pointed it out...didja get wet? Or was that the beginning of what caused the rained out day.

Poor bunny wabbit.

Some nice lookin' M109s there.

Nice friends makin' fun of the sleeping guy. I hope he said (upon seeing that photo) "If you all weren't so boring I could have stayed awake."  ;D

We didn’t get wet. That was on Saturday and there was a forecasted 0% chance of rain that day. (Thursday was the day that got rained out) everyone left their rain gear at the hotel since it seemed it wouldn’t be needed and there is zero storage space on an M109. I had mine with me and would have continued on. We were doing the waterfall route. Everyone else decided they wanted to cut the route short and head back to the hotel. I was leading and there were comments made that there was no way we could outrun the storm. I proved them wrong!    :thumbs:

I posted more info about the rabbit in my Angel GT tire thread if you want to take a look.

Definitely some nice 9’s there. There are some that make mine look average at best. It is unbelievable how you can have that many of the same bike in one place and other than the ones that are still unmolested (stock), there are no two bikes that look the same!

Mike, the sleeping guy, got as big of a laugh out of that picture and the rest of us.  :rotflmao:

Just curious. What did everyone think of the editing? Just wanting to get some feedback on that aspect as well. I’m thinking about possibly doing more videos on some of our rides if the editing is acceptable. I tried keeping a fast pace to the video with a mix of stills and video combined to keep it interesting. I think it is probably a little long at 6 mins, but is difficult to squeeze a week of riding into less time than that. Most of the videos I will be doing in the future would probably be day trips or weekend rides. Videos would probably fall in the 3-4 minute range.

Anyway, let me know what you think. Thanks!
