Weather finally broke down here and just in time for Piratetoberfest. You should add another 1000 to the odo for some shenanigans (see below pix) and wings .


Yup that's a Husky tank and Track Master rear .

Or how about a 1/2 a GSA?

Well....I trimmed the end off that upper radiator hose where it's been leaking intermittently, looking for some 'new' rubber to clamp onto. Appears the hose isn't my problem. The radiator itself seems to be what's leaking.....now...maybe it's a good thing I'm not down at Biktoberfest right now.

I wondered when you were eventually going to wear out a "hard part" on that bike.

Maybe you should start a dialogue with Suzuki NA about your miles and riding habits. They may want you as an advertising asset. Then you could slip them the , "Oh BTW, my radiator started leaking at 115K". Maybe some sponsorship kind of help - you could be their first 200K Strom rider with a little support.

Missed ya at the Old's Cool Rally.

Zipped through some high cotton before getting to the twisty stuff.....
















The cotton gin is still operating at full swing in Fallston.

Some twisty back roads around South Mtn to Lake James on our way to the Linville Gorge in the background.

Joining in with the leaf peepers on the BRP.....colors were better on the lower roads though.
















Many trees are already bare except for the boring brown oaks.
















Don't despair, there's still some color....

This may be my favorite over the shoulder action shot of the weekend.
















Apple cider is popular this time of year....
















The best part of the BRP is still the roads leading to it IMHO ...here we go down 226A

A fly by of the pavilion as we go back up NC 80
















No more twisty shots climbing up...but I am happy to report a very 'low traffic' run!


Table Rock and Hawk's Bill atop a distant ridge in this fly by from the BRP.

















Looked like it would be a nice day atop Mount Mitchell.
