Beautiful day on Grassy Sunday.


I've done windy gap , tibbs and milma a couple times on a DR650. Once on trailwings. I'm kinda slow, but that is a pretty good challenge on a GS, I imagine.

OK Bluebye, I wasn't going to reveal this Tellico pic taken with a Kirlean Orgone Ray Camera, but people should know this before they head up Windy Gap on DR650's.

Hi Mike. We've had way too much rain over the past couple of weeks.
I wonder if these boys realize what that does to the trails at Windy Gap. Hint: Who says giggity, giggity?

Probably makes for very muddy trails. There was quite a bit of mud/water on the road between Potato Patch and Lake Conasauga Sunday.
