OK. First off... That is not my place but if y'all want me to put up a sign, I will. Don't know what the real owners would think. Might go after this tonight if I can get done with cabin chores early enough. Man is it hot!!!

Probably way up in the mid-70s or so there, isn't it?

Haywood county Grab

Sorry for the crapy pictures but my beat up camera is on it's last leg.







These were black when I got home to look at them. My LCD screen is shot so I can't see what I have until I load them up onto the computer. I had to pump up the exposure with photoshop. You can sort of make out the handlebars on the bike in the first picture.

I had a great ride and I was saving a lot of lives with those pipes. I didn't see the banner when I turned in so I rode all through the campground looking for the banner. I thought it was hanging on a building in the original post so that's what I was looking for. No one said anything but I sure turned some heads. As you can see, it was quite dark when I got there. I took the Parkway home and even stopped at the highest point to gaze at the stars for a moment. I was worried about deer on the road but then I remembered that they could hear me coming from the next county. Speaking of next county, I'll have to get a Henderson County pic since I don't have any file photos. Maybe I can grab one tomorrow after work. Now I'm hitting the hay.

Thanks for the Kudos guys. I'm already making plans for the Henderson County tag. Since it will likely stand for a bit (long way to Hertford Co.) I wanted to pick an interesting and memorable one. I think I found it. Now I just need to get a couple hours with daylight so I can go get the pic. BTW I forgot to mention that the Haywood tag was at Blue Ridge Motorcycle Camp in Cruso on Hwy 276 just a bit North of the Blue Ridge Parkway. I've ridden by there many times but have never stopped. Very nice looking place. I can see why folks like it. Very quiet until some bozo comes in and cruises the place with straight pipes.

Henderson County Tag

Sorry for the delay but today was the first chance I had to go get the Henderson County Tag Pic. I know I got it in under the wire with just 19 days to spare. I couldn't get the one I originally wanted as someone decided to close the road and make it a pedestrian only trail. Oh well. This one should do nicely and it is outside of the gate so it is night tag friendly. Who's going to commit to the long haul for the next county??? Shouldn't need anymore clues than in the picture.

Now you've done it. Every time I suggest that I might run long distance, someone takes it personally and grabs it before I've even gassed up.

Well, if it is any consolation, I'll be at BURP through Sunday. So a grab for me would have to happen Monday sometime. If someone grabs it, then that frees me to flip a coin for which way I'll go after BURP.

But if no one grabs it, then duty may call.

There are a good handful of ripe tags right now. Some good combo grabs in there too for anyone with the time.

My riding is limited to trips to the grocery store for the short therm. Go for it you long distance types.
