Great day to slow ride and take the paths that typically end up on some mountain top and you are staring a some hillbillys front porch

Tenere in it's element god it was cool here could have sat there for hours


Came up on this field and the backdrop told me to take a pic.


I wish mississipi gravel was like this, not dust and just fun to ride on


And finally this being a big election year I thought this sign was appropriate


Beer thirty right now....

Today has started out interesting with many finds. First up was ran into my old '06 Wee the 3rd and final owner, Kevin. She rolls over 104,000 today, uses a little oil but never had to have the valves adjusted. Suzukis are great bikes.


Next up I found this little cemetery by accident, I took a gravel trail/road off 28 right before the gap. Went about a half mile up and came up on a forest rd gate. Turned around decided to take a leak. While I was pissing seen a no horses sign and noticed a well beaten path up over a small ridge. I walked up and came up on this

Well taken care off no current graves most were buried 75 years ago. Found it strange as to how much the power company paid to put that transmission loins through there. Graves were small no tall people and a child or two.

Then it was on to explore some more areas I normally overlook and ride by.
Ran up slick rock rd right off 129 before tapooco lodge this is looking down on 129 from above may not be too clear sun was flipping out the iPhone


Road was promising and offered an outlet but that was short lived came up on another gate. Could have went around this one but the ground was slick and wrong tire for the day actually had trouble turning the big mule around on this one. It was steep and damp pic doesn't show it.


Back on good gravel now and headedfor lunch. Clouds rolling in so rain must be coming. May try some more passes from Robbinsville over to Andrews this afternoon.


It's been a great week, love the big Tenere!!

Yea BW I've known it for years and followed his travels with it on ADV just never met him in person. We had a good chat and a very fast ride up to the overlook, he is a good rider. No cops, no harleys this morning just me and him dragging ADV bike parts all the way to the top. I originally sold it to a former moderator on here Lobby, he kept it until it had 28k on it then Kevin acquired it. I sold it with 16k on it and the givi top box still shows the scars from my '05 vstrom 1000 crash. The jesses bags were notion the 1000 that morning and wen on to live on the Wee.

I decided I would go visit EBW this morning; I haven't seen him since he's been out of the hospital.

I left my house about 5:30 but that's a little too early to be knocking on someone's door. I figured I would head north of Jackson and make a little loop back to his house.

The rain was kind of off an on.



I was going to eat breakfast in Flora but I wasn't hungry when I got there so I kept going.





I was starting to get hungry and the closest town was Rolling Fork. I made my way to Chucks restaurant. Since I was in RF I grabbed the State Tag.



Then decided to take the Teddy Bear tour.





I left there and headed toward the river.




Then gradually made my way back Southeast.







After 300 miles and 7.5 hours, I made it to EBW's house.

Knightwork, Bob, and I met for breakfast today, and went for a little ride.

I had a 5 hour route planned to from Brandon to Columbia to Monticello using primarily back roads.

We left Brandon and made our way towards Harrisville.











Just on the other side of Harrisville, this guy was having some difficulty.




Several of the roads I had plotted were gated so we had to reroute on the fly.
