    This view really shows how the upper color is already gone while the lower trees are still holding lots of green.

    BRP traffic was pretty heavy so I opted for a run down Old 105 :ricky

    The Linnville River comes out of the gorge and feeds into Lake James. The riding around the lake aint too bad either....looking back.

    Then down to Asheville for a quick stop at 'Wedgeday' :D

    I get that there's a lot of double yellow passing opportunities up there....should one be so inclined. :patch





    About 350 miles......with the final 100 on 4 lane in the dark...(it's more fun to sit in traffic on the BRP) :lol3

    I rode the BRP for about 25 miles north from Rt 221 last Thurs. when I left Mars Hill. There was a little more color around GF Mtn then.

    I think it was harder for him to convert his accidental video into a pic, than getting the 50k at 5rpm while doing 50mph :norton
