Sorry, we've been in hibernation kinda at both shops. Been doing some trail work in the National Forest & on my property. Also, trying to spend as much time with the family as I can because once season starts, I'll be busy.




Here's a special I think I can post with out getting in trouble.

We have a few Firstgear Men's 5.0 Kilimanjaro Light gray jackets that are on close out. There's one XL and three 2XL's. They are on sale for $189.96, shipping is $7.00

Sorry for the poor photo:



There's also one Women's Med 5.0 Kilimanjaro in light Gray and one XL Women's 5.0 Kilimanjaro in Hi-Viz. They are on sale for $189.96, shipping is $7.00.

Old photo when I had a rack full of the women's Kili's.



We've got a good selection of Klim Traverse Jackets and Pants right now; however, the rep told me they are going to run out this spring and the next shipment won't be till July. Klim is also sold out of D30 armor right now. I've got a bunch on back order.





The new Firstgear Kathmandu jackets and pants are here too.

Most of our prices in the shop, I'm not allowed to post due to MAP rules from manufacturers.

I've got a shipment from Klim in route & I'm hoping there's armor in the shipment. Not going to hold my breath though. They told me late spring / early summer before their next shipment. I've got one set of jacket armor in the shop yet.

Mike

I saw on Facebook that the bakery said Tellico Plains was hit pretty hard by a tornado yesterday. Did you and your wife's business get hit???? Lots of prayers out for everyone that was affected by the weather this week.

Glad to hear Mike and all are okay. I stopped in last year while camping in Tellico, and the folks there were great. I will be back this summer as I only live about 45 minutes north of Tellico.

Cherie & I are ok. I was here when the Tornado came thru half a block from the shop. Hid in the bath room at the back of the store. It did sound like a freight train.

There's quite a few houses destroyed on the hill behind us and over on the hill behind the police station. The phone company lost a brick building just down the street. The KOA is GONE! I spent yesterday chain sawing to help a friends with their blow downs. Lots of really nice trees got wiped out. The tornado traveled up Hwy 360, & it looks really bad just North of the Shell Gas station. There's still some road blocks up to keep out non-residents.

I'll be back at the shop on Thursday.

Thanks everyone for your concern!

Mike & Cherie

Back at the shop today. Phone line was out for most of the day; but, it's up again. A few bikes out exploring the Cherokee National Forest today. Saturday weather should be great!

The White V7C is no longer white. I wanted riders to see me in their rear view mirror as I catch up to them on the Cherohala Skyway.

Cherie say's the new color is going to make people vomit.

Moto Tuner Taillight

Hi Mike, I met you several weeks ago on a Sat and you showed me the new taillight on your Duc 620. I have an 07 Duc MS. Just put it on and it is great and such an easy install. It came from Mototuner and I highly recommend it, Thanks for your help.

I stopped at mike's shop last week and picked some very nice soft bags for the bike. He has a great shop and always very helpful! Sure wish it was not so far from home.

There will be a couple Triumph 1200 adventure bikes stopping by the shop today around noon if anyone wants to drop by to see them.

I'll post a few pictures.
