Well the battle with the Nighthawk is over. She has succumb to her internal injuries after the oil filter failure. On the trip into work tonight she started knocking and loosing power. Guess the old girl has had enough. I was hoping she would hold together long enough for me to get the XT all straightened out and on the road but it is not to be I guess.

I was really hoping to get the Bladen Tag when it made it there but I have 2 broken bikes right now. But the time frame this one is standing I might be able to get something back together by then.

Bummer! Hope you get back riding soon.

So who else around here might be interested in getting the Beaufort tag?

Museum, City Hall, and Police Dept. in Belhaven, NC. Unfortunately, I was running pretty tight on time, and didn't get to visit the museum, which I understand is pretty cool.

Next tag coming soon....

Thanks, Ray! It was a great day for a ride, but did get a little chilly on the way home. Had about an hour and a half to go after the sun set.... Glad to be warming up finally.

I tell ya, I was surprised at the many great roads in that neck of the woods. Not all flat and straight like you might imagine. Some real sweet curvy bits, and of course some great scenery.

It was a good ride.

Yep, I got it, but on my camera vs. camera phone, and I kept forgetting to bring my camera in from the bike. Downloading them now. Be just a few minutes.

Bertie County Tag

I had a wonderful ride through the eastern part of Our Great State on Friday, and without a care in the world, stumbled upon this cable ferry.

Tag pic:



Note that tag pic is taken from the North side of this expensive river.

Also note that the approach to the ferry from the South is on easy, well-groomed roads. The approach from the North is just fine as well until the last 50 yards or so, which was mostly underwater. Water wasn't deep, and as long as you pick your path through you should be fine. My FJR did get a little sideways in one spot, but it wasn't too bad. I do recommend dismounting and walking through the mud puddles to find the best path. Water was only a couple of inches deep.

Good Luck!

It's nice out today. Sorry it took me so long to get this posted. Hope ya'll are all enjoying the beautiful weather.

Shot from the deck of the ferry, just for fun. This is not the tag pic.

And one more to show that the dry part of the road is fine. There is gravel embedded in that dirt. The wet part can be slick, but the foundation is good...

Yep, I know the one you're talking about. This was my first time across this one.

Thanks!
