Hey Tabor ,
I forgot to send a link to the Asheville-WNC Adventure Rider thread. Post up there for a Sunday ride, still lots of nice weather for it. How late do you work on Wednesdays?
Shane

What a day!!! I choose the perfect day to play hookie from work

It can not get better: 9am in the driveway



tiny bit of gravel



I-26 over Big Laurel



On Big Laurel





checked out this one road.... well, I kinda knew it will end somehow



shoot!





dead end roads can be fun anyway!



Cutshall Town Rd



spendy place on 212, but once in a while I get a little "treat" for me bikes...





Franklin Mountain



somewhere in TN









my first destination: East TN tag



this place swarmed with grasshoppers



and I ended up with burrs in my hair - not fun getting them out with slightly "longish" hair...


heading back down... great fun road

Nice pics. I should have played hookie too, as it's in the mid 70's and sunny.

I know you needed some 'me time' inside your helmet, glad you got it (at least a little bit of it).

Gotta get me some too.

work?
afraid so... (I am at work right now )

yesterday was considered a "mental health day" (and reduce comp time)

here are rest of the pics:

Viking Mt. (below the tower)





Lone Pine Gap - above Paint Creek



Brush Creek Road



some failed attempt of a self-timer shot (no fished were harmed at the slip )





on Fubar Fugate road to get over the river



no pics from NC209 - that's way too much fun to mess around with the camera

short stop at _anatic's to drop of some stickers (which turns out I left at home )



can't wait to move in





on Hwy63



- if you look closely you see AVL way back there.... and the Wedge (my next destination)



well, just after I took the pic the bike decided to take a nap - and I was not even near it



turns out, it came in pretty handy that my cable broke the last time I was out: it's much easier to pull a freshly lubed/new clutch cable with one finger

so, 200 miles, a clutch lever, couple of Pils at the Wedge, ... live is good

So it's not enough that Shane lives on/near the roads he does, he gets a room with a view besides. Nice.

I have ridden all those roads several times, I showed it to some NC riders, along with Lonesome mountain, they still can't believe a yankee has showed them several good roads that are in their back yard. They nicknamed that stretch 'Richards ridge"

Did they pave the pull off in the carousel turn on BL, to keep it free of gravel?
