I didn't get a whole lot of pictures from 105, because, well.... Its really fun doing 50mph on a gravel road you've never ridden before!
But the views were awesome, highly recommend this road!












the damn at the bottom of lake James


couple more roads, and I stumbled onto 70 towards old fort. Having ridden down I40 on my out, I decided I needed to figure out how to get back up over the hill without the interstate. The map showed a road that seemed to run up to black mountain, by way of Andrews Guyser




Just past the guyser the road (mill creek rd) turns into dirt and climbs up the grade, under a couple of pretty cool railroad bridges, and dumps out at Ridgecrest (the religious camp you can see from 40 on top of the hill)

it had been a long day of fun, 260 miles, and 30 bucks in gas. Time for a wedge beer!

sunday afternoon, and nothing to do. may as well go get a beer....

when you live at the base of one of the most fun approach roads to the BRP, its often the most logical way to get somewhere..

view over towards Brevard


and my valley from above


and the beer was good too!

spent 4 days on the BRT (http://advrider.com/forums/showthread.php?t=632804) last week! up for 3 days on a fun mix of dirt and secondary roads, then an ironman back home. 330 miles down the parkway in 1 day. that wasn't as fun!

here's a few pics...








a husaberg holds 2.1 gallons. when you use 2.1 gallons, this is what happens...


ill work on a full report soon
