KB - well played, great pix of the swamps and old south.

I do think it's a stretch calling that part of the state Florida. More like Gorflorbama. Frost? WTF.

Wanted to make that one but too much life going on this time of year. Perhaps BQF in Feb?

Fu...I hate you couldn't make it!

You do know there seems to be one campout per month in ANF this winter, don't you? Dec, Jan, BQF? (don't see a thread yet), and again in Mar.

Unfortunately the date in March conflicts with Bike Week so I doubt I'll be making any of them in ANF again this winter......unless nothing comes together for ONF during Bike Week.

Thanks for the kind words!

I'm registered on XS11 but haven't been on much lately...and didn't know about that get together.

"the pig" has made a few runs across wolfpen gap though

Please stop

Dude,

You have got to stop posting pics of the southeast, especially NC! Too many people will get the wrong idea. The roads suck, the moonshine is of questionable origin, and I haven't met any friendly people here yet!

Seriously, I think I've ridden every inch of your pictorial. Been living and riding NC my whole life. Thanks for the journey...

Hey man!

You should have come out for the Charlotte / Pizza / 3rd Thursday's last night.

3 of us that were there decided to meet again today for lunch then take a little back roads cruise around the neighborhood.

So we met at Courtney's BBQ in Clover around noonish and I was stuffed leaving that place!

That's JoeyBones on the far left and once again I forgot a screen name.
(I know your looking and I remember your real name so post up!)






That early 80s CB900 makes a neat scrambler though!

I should have taken more pics of it...here's a crop of that shot to show his custom skid plate.





It's been cold and/or wet most every day since I got back from Florida two weeks ago so today's 50s and sunny provided a much needed opportunity to shake some cabin fever.





Same old farm road for me....but new for them.






I need to come back and try some more sunset shots at this old cabin sometime.....






I'm right on the state line looking back into the "good" Carolina in this shot.







We did about a 75 mile loop with as much of this as I could link in. Of course they did more miles than that total as they rode down from Charlotte.











I even gave away a few of my little hide outs.






Lake Crawford still had some ice floating along the shady shoreline.











I find everything about this 15 acre tract of land to be a bit strange... It's only been a year or less since "improvement" began on the tract, which is completely surrounded by park land.






Today there was a guard dog stationed at the gate. Unrestrained but he stayed on his side of the fence and barked at us, even though he could easily get out....it looked like he had a food and water dish.







One of these things is not like the others......





The answer is A






My parting shot for the day.....






Thanks for coming out for a little ride today guys!

I enjoyed it!!

Mr. Banjo...

I had a fantastic time today and your photos captured the day perfectly. I'm sure "Livermush" will chime in here and agree that we can't wait to meet up and ride with you again!

Kevin a great day, good weather, and a kind soul to share some remarkable roads. Don't worry I can keep a secret, it's the the people I tell who can't.JK
Thanks again, and look forward to riding again.

You're too sweet.
