Back to Thursday's mellow brunch run.....

Had Julie not been tending her shop the General Store in Todd, NC was our 'plan B' it made a good 'plan A' rest stop too.















































We swung by the HD dealer in Wilkes as there was supposed to be a group of antique bikes ending a ride from Wheels Through Time there before continuing on to an event in Denton the following day. But we were an hour or more too early so we just took a scenic route back up the mtn to camp......

Let's just say that I tried my best to knock some sense into the ol boy.
He didn't say where it happened, and I haven't talked to him in about a week. I just saw something he put up on FB. What a knucklehead!

I want to wait to do the 100 @ 100. Maybe by then I can learn photography.

He actually ran into the back of me during the ride I led on Saturday......but somehow I didn't crash!

It's funny now....but it really scared me to see him lying in the street motionless. It was a big relief to see him get up and seem to be OK... wasn't long before the tweetie birds singing around his head were obvious to anyone within earshot though and that earned him a night in the hospital even though he didn't look like he a scratch on him.

Here he is wondering why he doesn't have a headlight.














I don't think anybody can question that that lid saved his life!














Even his bike appears to only have cosmetic damage.......

Yep...but thankfully haven't heard of anybody else taking pavement samples.....pretty sure there were a few minor drops on the trail rides though.

Several rounds of late night rain on Thursday made for great riding conditions....on the gravel roads, very tacky and NO dust! I'm happy to announce that nobody got lost, hurt or broke down on my Friday ride and umpteen people lined up for it too!!














Roadside regrouping and pee break.

It was damp and foggy overcast all morning but no rain. Then just before reaching our lunch stop the skies began to clear.














It wasn't too much longer before the remaining haze burnt off....














Lunch in Volney, VA

He's been given the honor as being the first inmate I've had to ban from the "Late Train" also known to the miscreants as the "Hangover Ride"

I didn't take many pics during my rides...they would be repeats from the scouting runs anyway, just more blurry.

Couple more in Volney



























After lunch pee stop.

Just a few more from Friday's ride.....








































The only casualty of the day was my own rear tire...noticed at the end of the ride.



But believe it or not, just like down in Daytona on my last brand new rear tire....it didn't penetrate through far enough to cause a leak!!
