Well alright then.
I live pretty close to you in Gastonia and have a Daughter and son-in-law in the Clover "sticks" area near McGill's..... I recognized some of the places you have been..... Nice pics!
Don't be surprised. I can travel down most roads in WV and when you cross the line into VA, they generally turn to crap. For one of the poorest states in the country, it definitely has good roads.
Glenn...don't forget us little people when you become a millionaire!
Thanks!...and what are you waiting for?
Thanks!...maybe WVA doesn't bother with sanding an icy road?
Thank you...and Welcome to the board neighbor!!
Oh yeah....Mark, thanks for the new avatar?
I couldn't resist when I saw it on the shelf.
I didn't even notice him.
NIce ride. Nice bike!
I'm surprise it's not the NEW avatar
I didn't make it down to the Texas hill country this year, had too much other stuff fall on the same week. Then as a consolation I had hopes of joining GlennR on a trail ride scouting run but I wasn't able to get the old DR ready in time due to thunderstorms.
What did get done is the Strom is wearing some new shoes.
Out scrubbing them in on back roads near Lake Lure.....
It appears the dial got bumped into fisheye mode.
Decided to take a break in Asheville's 'River Arts District'
Ran into BDXMPL and Cuttle at the Wedge......and ended up crashing on their couch with one of their dogs.
Thanks again for the hospitality!!
I didn't get any pics but we did some more RDV scouting....this time it was testing breakfast recipes. Several more joined us for that including kennyanc, _anatic, HalcyonDaze..and they each had a sweetie with them too...I had the dogs and cats.
Then we rode up to Black Bear to do some final figuring etc.....traffic jam.
It's looking like Spring at the resort now!
Heading out from Dennis Cove on Walnut Mtn.
More signs of Springtime on the mountain.
Just out having some fun.
anytime - you are more than welcome!!!
Keep up the good work. Your photography is very inspiring.
I have been catching back up on this thread to get myself pumped up for my next trip. I am heading up that way May 13th through the 15th in search of random back roads in WNC. Probably going to hit NC 215 and NC 281 and whatever other "wonder where this goes" roads I can find. Of course the cross county ride from Savannah to the mountains is nice too.
So, how many more miles are you planning to get out of the Wee? Do you have any thoughts on picking up your next sled?
I'm on my way up to BRMC this afternoon for the Old's Cool Spring Rally and maybe a stop at the Vintage Meltdown tomorrow (weather permitting)

p.s. note to self: wear sunblock, dummy...just because it's not hot outside doesn't mean you won't get a sunburn.
Friday afternoon was about as nice of a day as you could ask for to go riding.
Destination Blue Ridge Motorcycle Campground site of the Spring Old's Cool campout.
mark1305 and Happy Riding
She just completed an SS1k on that bike last week riding back from the Texas Hill Country....with 7 hours to spare!
Mark and the airhead he rode up from Florida.
There's always a few new bikes that seem to sneak in too.
