When ya headed up? I drove the tail today! Not on a bike though :( in a jeep. Check my spot in my sig. I'm staying at Fontana village for the weekend there is a BMW rally group of folks up here too. Talked to a guy on a 950 Adv today, he was the only orange in the area I saw. Might see you guys around. Be safe!

Penton Steel Tanker

SingleTrackJeff,

I'll be happy to remove that old steel tank remnant thats just "laying around" off your hands.

I'm always needing something for these old bikes.

Let me know what you have.

Thanks, John

I have rode the Dragon and Blue Ridge Pkway a few times but I believe my favorite ride up that way is the Cherahola Skyway. The turns are spread out just enough with positive camber banking that really make them a lot of fun to ride.

Yeah, I was blown away after riding it from Tellico Plains. I agree mo betta than the Dragon, BRP and Blood Mtn (fun wise). The BRP is hard to beat for the vistas.

Have fun up at Tellico on the Dragon, BRP, Cherohola Pkwy, and everything surrounding it. Awesome riding there, I go every spring for a week to drag knees/pegs on the Dragon and then DS through the mountains!

Plan "B" for cutting bars. Buy a $5 metal cutting blade for the miter saw and bam! Bars complete.

I assure you that Inept is NOT lonewolfing it... I am sure he is well taken care of and I wish I was up there with my crew because I know they are having a blast. You and Phil will have fun especially if you love curves like I do. Just remember to watch your speed and crossing double yellow lines....not that you would do any of that stuff.

Check it out, it's cool. It's good to know the history of John Penton and how he got Penton motorcycles started in the U.S., and for current KTM riders to know their heritage.
Just be careful on those things!
