    This could have been the next tag....oh well, it'll stay on standby. :wink:

    I did notice that the cotton fields finally did get cut....and there was evidence of a little bit of business at the cotton gin in Fallston as well.

    I suppose there's more than one of those around. :lol3 That one is relatively new and is in the middle of about one short mile of sweet curves around the base of Cramer Mtn. Remember hearing about an armored car heist in Charlotte some years ago? The dummies bought a house with cash atop Cramer Mtn....pretty much said "Hey Feds! Look at me!!" :loco They're were several involved and the ladies went out and got boob jobs and the guys were buying new Harleys and trucks with cash...no red flags there seeing as how they were living in a trailer park the week before! :rofl


    On another note....

    Radiator repair is looking pretty good this morning...it may be next year before it gets tested though.

    I wasn't able to get much riding in over the holidays but I did have a few visitors stop by!
    Thanks for taking the time to have lunch with me folks! :clap
    Drif10 and family!

    Followed by Happy Riding and her Brother JGNC the very next day!

    He's actually the guy that beat me to the tag I was chasing at the white chapel. :lol3



    Between lunches I managed to get the Strom back together and taken back apart and back together again. :twitch :lol3

    Radiator repair is good...so far. :thumb But the fuel injection rail started leaking and then one of the o-rings on a fitting near the thermostat was leaking...got all that fixed and it was all tight on a short test run but the weather has kept me from getting too far away lately.


    I did, however get up to the Grand Opening party at a very cool little motorcycle shop that just opened in downtown Asheville!! :freaky

    Lots of ADV inmates showed up and both owners are already involved in this community as well! :thumb


    I have a bunch of pics of the place as well as some of the usual suspects that I'll start posting up later, hopefully today/night sometime......... :wink:

    Don't worry of you missed it as I've just today been informed that this was merely a 'soft opening' and the official grand opening will be later on this spring! :deal



    It was pouring rain down in the Charlotte area but when I arrived at 99 S. Lexington around 4ish it was under clear skies and bright sun. And who's bike do I find already parked out front?

    That's right, Happy Riding! :clap Hawk in the background and that's a BDXMPL playing with the trashcan.

    James aka Blink 152 chats with a couple of friends with his rally bikes lurking in the background. (he's one of the owners)

    Hunter aka BDXMPL (bad example) is the other owner. He's trying to give me the thumbs up, really he's not just flapping his wings. :norton His wife Cuttle on the left of frame tending to an awesome pot of jambalaya!

    This is the sight that greeted us at the front entrance....I believe the Panhead is for sale.

    For this being just a 'soft opening' Moto Vicious already has lots of cool decorations and memorabilia scattered around the shop....

    [​IMG]













    I was early and took advantage by having a closer look around the shop....sweet Indian, eh? :D

    [​IMG]













    They had kennyanc's sweet ol 350 on display as well. :thumb

    Front and back samples of the Moto Vicious t-shirts hang either side of the TV that streams directly off the computer/internet. Seems like I heard something about MotoGP race and the like. :norton
