TN/WNC ride

Had a great time.

My mount:


Cool paved roads:


Cool dirt roads:


Cool friends ... Bill and Liz rode in to meet up:


Blistered the twists with this crew:


Cool Views:


Spring had not yet come to the higher elevations. The lower elevations were bursting with blooms.


My home on the road ... NOT ... but I like it:


Saturday nights lodging. We had a great time around the fire!


Let's hit the big road:


Let's hit the small roads:


Roads got smaller:


This is the end.

Thanks, Dan
Which bike?
Being friendly helps a lot. I've got a 2008 ktm xcf plated.
(didn't even have a spark arrestor. :) )

When you do it, just do the headlight, tail light and brake light.
You don't need turn signals in NC. But if you have rear turn signals, you HAVE to have front turn signals. (Stupid)

Very cool road trip Magoo! Looks like you're missing your old riding buddy Sweet Feed. How's she doing up North?

Pissed Reilly rd ... "-punks?-"

So there was a huge crew (read: horde) on Reilly gathered by a set up memorial or something near the waffle house. Then they held up traffic for five minutes doing burnouts and heading north - I estimated about 100+ of them... Anyone know what was up or have more info? (Tweets, vidjoes, facerbooks, youtubers?)

No. Not anything positive anyway.

They are checking a lead on a part or 2 that popped up on E Bay.

If it is them, then it has been stripped and being sold off for parts.

Seller is out of SC. Not too far from the state line. In a way I hope they found it and in another I hope it isn't and they recover the bike.

Sucks, sorry to hear that T6D. I guess with the weather getting better the seasonal riders will be out and thefts will be on the rise. But it blows to have someone enter your property and take it from where you rest your head at night.

We will ride from there to club Xscape for 2 wheel Tuesday to celebrate his life as a family. I again I ask that all who can make it out please join us tonight. If you have any questions, comments our concerns please feel free to contact me. Love you all and I pray that I see you all tonight.
Outsydaz Street Rydaz (I can't believe I just spelled that) lost a rider recently. That was the "memorial service".

Actually, I think it is in Saxapahaw. Not a bad ride up that way. It's the nice part if NC87.

It is. Pretty much between Greensboro and Raleigh. But on the DRZ the road could be made of Megan Fox's ass riding into a horizon of Scarlett Johanson's rack and I would still hate it after 100 miles.
