I'm a former power lineman... I think they're purty.

This pic makes me think of pumpkin pie.

Hey Kevin. I hear you ran into the previous owner of your Wee... Ol' Roy is one of our local riders. It's a small world!

That was a fun chance encounter! I was asking him what he thought about that Tenere he was riding when he recognized the strom.

There's actually quite a few guys from where I work that ride motorsickes....most of 'em cruisers though. But myself and these 3 other old guys buck that trend a little bit and have considered ourselves more in the sport-tour category, although some may not be any faster than cruisers.

However, these guys never feel that their year is complete if they haven't been to Deals Gap at lest once during a riding season. Also health problems have kept the 4 of us from making the trip together over the past three years. One guy battled cancer then pancreatitis? and the another had shoulder surgery the another had his hip replaced, so I'm the only one that hasn't been out of commission lately.


The 3 of them set out on Wed morning and I took off early from work and met them at the Phillips Motel in Robbinsville that evening, then we did out tourist duties in mecca and rode the dragon's tail and the Cherohala Skyway on Thursday, spent another night and out raced a storm front home today.


Only took a couple of pics on Wed.....first was a pit stop to check some traps.














It'll still keep the Strom out...














...and what do you think the 'other' subject may have been?

Getting suited up for 'battle' bright and early on Thursday.














Up past the lake.....














...and it's official!



I believe that '09 was the last time the 4 of us had stood there together.

Business must be good as the shack looks a bit more permanent now.
