Trip to the Deal's Gap - short story and pictures

05/19/2009 6pm
First I had to help some friends to load their bikes on trailer and than I left to meet my bud Adam in NJ


05/20/2009 7:00 am
Stayed over night at his house and early in the morning we were ready to rock


first stop skyline drive Adams friend Pit and his wife


I'll get my friends to post more pics from skyline (that is the only one I did )

05/21/2009
meet up with the rest of the crew in Roanoke VA
so now we had 6 bikes and 8 people total.
Time to hit the Blue ridge parkway

We had to stop often as they were working on the road




good timing for a smoke


some nice flora along the way


and break for lunch


it was dark when we got to Deal's but luckly I've called ahead and the keys to the rooms were waiting for us

after coffee we said good buy to the Deal's Gap




And hed for BRP to slowly make our way back to VA
well it was - nice






We stayed in the same Hotel in VA and it the morning those guys left and the trailer and I spend 11 hours and 620 miles of working on making my tires flat

ps. got ticked in PA " for not following a properly posted speed limit sign" those guys didn't even knew how fast was it, and I was followingh the traffic o well 109 bucks down the drain,

I hope it wasn't to boring

Jerry
