and still qualified 2nd on the grid this weekend in Assen. Marquez is amazing. Got the chance to watch him up close in Austin this year.

We all going to be hearing about him for a while to come.

You come around the corner, see this in your lane... what are the first words that come to mind.

This made me giggle.


And for the record, I think I would be saying something along the lines of "Jusus F***ing Christ"

LOL!

And that article on the Cruiserface affliction was also very funny, if a bit sarcastic. Or because it was sarcastic, I haven't decided yet.

Yep,that's me and my monkey heading over to Cade's Cove via the Foothills Parkway with our bicycles. After riding the loop on our bicycles we exited Cade's Cove via Parsons Branch Road. The bikes are handy because of all the inconsiderate drivers who stop in the middle of the loop road instead of using the pull offs kinda like the pirates parading on the Dragon.

I was a deputy sheriff in a former life and bought my own bicycle because the department bikes were not maintained.




Double warning signs on Parsons Branch


One of the eleven low water crossings on the PBR.
Used 2wd twice on the steep climbs.

I'll be up that way next weekend. Is Parsons Branch Road worth the trip? I've not done that road, but riding 90 miles of pavement for 9 miles of gravel on a holiday weekend seems like a bad idea.
