Heading up 28 to Deal's Gap.
















Color was much nicer in this area.

What a fun trip!
Thanks for taking the time to show me around.
Only some sprinkles on the way home, but the heated gear got a little work out.
The mutt was happy when I opened the door.

Glad to hear you made it back and dodged most of the rain!

Keep em coming

Kenny,

Between your pics here and Cuttle's thread, you guys keep my mouth watering to ride some of these roads. I live in N. Wilkesboro at the foot of 421, got to get my work schedule straightened out to put some real quality time on the "recently new to me 99 KLR".

i have put 2500 miles on it doing the commute (only 5k on it total), but would love to put a lot of miles on it riding the roads you guys ride.

thanks to both of you for posting up such great pics.

Hey Kevin!

Where is Devil's Courthouse? Looks familiar in the pic, and I think I stopped there on a long bike trip several years ago.

Hi Mark!

Devils Courthouse is on the BRP very near where NC215 crosses. Down the South side of the mtn on 215 there's a dead end FR that climbs back up towards it that accesses a popular hike to Courthouse Falls.


Reddog* posted his states traveled in 2012 map elsewhere and made me jealous. Didn't get to fill in too many states this year and doubt that I'll be adding anymore in Nov-Dec...

So here's my 'moto states' for 2012....funny thing is that I logged more miles this year than I have in a while, just riding around in circles I guess!

It's nice to see a map with colors other than red and blue.
