Some beautiful riding you have in that part of the country. I have enjoyed many of your pics you post around the site so I will be following along here now....

VStromNC 08-24-2010 06:03 AM

Kevin,

Nice RR. I've been on some of those same roads on my Vee although I don't recognize the trail in the last series of photos.

I have to get some new tires shortly. What are you using on your Wee?

Jon,
That bumpy road was coming down from Old House Gap (oneninetytwo) You've probably ridden it on your KLX.

I've been running different tires on the Strom, right now there's a Tourance on the rear and an Anakee 2 on the front.

That's in downtown Casar, NC....I'm guessing that both of those cars are for sale as a whole or for parts if you're interested....

...but be careful, they just seen a Bigfoot up there in June!
