    Not really a ride report, just a few days, a few photos, a few roads, and riding back home on an old bike that's more than a few years old.




    On the fourth day, God created old motorcycles, and his work was good.


    On the fifth day, God created Tazewell County Virginia, and his work was good.


    On the sixth day, God created the the roads in Tazewell County Virginia, and his work was good.


    On the seventh day, his work was done, then he rested.



    The old motorcycle.

    Nice! :thumb

    So I bet running up there with virtually no brakes, hand shift, and foot clutch, was an eye opening experience! :evil

    Many pucker moments? :ear


    I love riding up there! :nod (actually I hate it!):lol3

    Definitely makes one chuckle when people complain about the lack of "feel" on their dual Brembo set up !!

    She looks great Don, and great road pics too, now if we can just get you to fix up a video cam on the old girl so we can get some sound to go with the vision, then maybe you can head back out and do it all over again..:evil
