    Only managed to catch the 3rd place victory lap wheelie on film though...

    Then it got pounded into my head that it wasn't just going to be rain.....this was a hurricane that was set to hit the track directly, although it would be down graded to a TS by then it would still be too much for my tent so we all packed up and went home.

    [​IMG]





























    The real danger for me didn't turn out to be weather but a right front tire that decided to turn into an egg. :umph

    Glad I was able to get that sucker changed before it came apart completely!! :knary

    Then last weekend there was a group of the ol DOGs (dual sporters of georgia) getting together at TWoS on Saturday night so I took Sunday off to ride over there and camp out. Did some stuff around the house Friday then decided to take the KTM out for a lunch run and try to grab one of the tagorama games that wasn't too far away.

    What I ended up getting was a performance award. :bluduh

    [​IMG]





























    But I did get the TAG too. :rolleyes

    [​IMG]





























    And lunch!

    Since I didn't need to be getting any more awards and the Srom still needs servicing from being out West....the little Sporty got saddled up for the run to Suches.

    If anybody is looking for a project? :deal

    It was pretty much overcast all the way to the Georgia border that day but it was nice and sunny by the time I got to Warwoman Rd.

    Had a good time that evening but then had to pack up and aim for home after breakfast....it was kinda cloudy for the good part of the day Sunday but the temps weren't too bad.

    I feel like I really should be in Telico Plains at the Old's Cool Fall campout right now but (warning: brief old man whine to follow) geez...I feel like I've been out on the road since June and all my days off at home in between trips have been spent prepping for the next trip....and I camped out and took days off unpaid each of the last 3 weekends in a row. Just couldn't get motivated to sleep in a tent again this weekend. :baby

    But it ended up turning out to be too nice of a day today to not go for a ride anyway...but I'm safely back at home and can sleep in my own bed and not have to wake up to the sound of the alarm clock tomorrow. :D

    Since it had been pretty chilly down here in the flatlands the past three nights I though there might be some good color up around Grandfather Mtn. so late this morning after it had wormed up I hopped on the KTM and headed for the Wilson Creek Gorge area.

    I didn't expect much color down low and didn't take many pics but the route went something like this: Playmore Beach to Maple Sally to Schoolhouse Ridge then down through Edgemont and up Old House Gap.

    A quick break at the top to pee and regain feeling in my hands....

    [​IMG]

    ...it was there that I realized my carry along extra oil bottle in the top box was empty....and that I should probably add a little bit before too long...so I detoured over to an auto parts place in Newland.
