It's so hot right now we are going to chill in the pool and hit the road a little later.

Your an amazing young man, just imagine when you return to school & they ask everyone what they did over the summer!
Great idea

I'm sorry I missed ya'll as you came right through here. Actually I went for a ride on the Trace just yesterday. I probably just missed ya.

Be safe and enjoy the ride.

The Trace was fun.The best part was the Tennessee end lots of nice sweeping curves that Chadd and I like to take as fast as sensibly possible with a young boy on the back.
I would loved to have added another 20 mph but I had precious cargo.

We are in the Marriott in Tennessee tonight we average 300 miles a day.

Many more and Chadd won't be smiling.

Heading to the Blue ridge mountains in the morning.

Chadd's been in the hotel pool now for hours and every time I go down to check on him he wants to stay longer as he has made a bunch of friends cause I parked the bike right at the entrance of the hotel and they came in after us and think Chadd's really cool doing this ride.
Last time I went down they asked what kind of bike it is.

I told them an MZ 1000 SF and they said it looked like a HD road king...OK

I hoped he would be up to it but I was not sure.

This is the Tennessee river

Well after five hours in the pool last night this is what my riding partner looks like at 10:30 am.





Once he got up he went back down to the pool.The pool has a spot where you can swim inside and outside.He had never seen that before and thinks it's cool.
I just asked and checkout is noon and it's 11:20 now so I either ask for a late checkout or stay another night...

Well after a late start yesterday at about 1:30 pm we pushed on to try and burn some miles.
The pretty roads were not an option.So on we went.
All of a sudden it looked like a storm and sitting in traffic was not fun so we parked the bike under the bridge and sat in the grass for a while.It turned out there was a bad accident up a little further.

Well I sat in the grass,Chadd had to give his ass a break I guess
