great turnout

1st off, thanks Russ for a great ride. All in all, I ended up with about 100 miles of gravel and connector roads.

I didn't take as many pics this time, mostly just at the stops, but here are some:



Mills River campground at 10am (I was fashionable late - but at least I was not last ). 12 bikes total.



"collecting" after the first road



some stopped a few hundred feet earlier





Horseshoe Rock:









Wolf Mountain Road (my new favorite road in this area)



on the new Tiger





FancyIndigo



a bit later Joe's bike decided to disintegrate: first his exhaust fell off, then he lost his kickstand spring



since he shouldn't be caught in the woods without a spark arrestor, we suggested to him to take the parkway home (he'd fit in just fine with the Harleys )

well, one mile down the road we caught up with them: flat tire (sorry - I should not laugh)

we left a tube and pump behind and carried on



the last "survivors" (people dropped out at various stages)



To bad the road I found was voted down as "we would get the bikes impounded"
