    It used to be kinda rough and rocky with a few puddles and what-not after the second gate...but it's been graded and graveled all the way to the end now....even though these pics may be from before that gate yet...

    No run to the mountains this week as my old beater of a car had been acting up and needed a bit of work, also it looked to be rainy up there this morning anyway. But I did manage to take the Sportster out for a little scenic lunch ride in spite of that and as it turned out...the colors around some back roads here locally were better than what I'd seen over the past two weeks up in the hills. :D

    Just getting started over in the Kings Mtn parks.

    Nice work, Kev. I was up lower Tn>>NC way this week and didn't see anything nice.

    Did see snow on the Cherohala, but the Colors were marginal at best.

    It was sunny this morning while I had the mower out mulching up leaves but by the time I got cleaned up and ready to take another little lunch ride it had clouded over and was looking like rain. And rain it did...but not before I got in a little 50ish mile ride on the old DR650 (having the mower out of the shed allowed access to the old beast) :D

    After sitting in the dark for months she fired up on the 3rd kick and ran flawlessly so she earned a few glamour shots for that. :toney

    I probably should have waited until now to ride as the sun came out after that shower and I always struggle with taking pics under a gray sky for some reason.....but it was a nice ride.

    [​IMG]
























    If I just focus on the underbrush and skip the sky maybe it'll be OK?....it was a nice thought anyway. :lol3

    On second thought it may be a good thing I rode when I did...posting from the back porch now and it's getting chilly out here!

    Apple Rd. in Kings Mtn State Park....gotta putt-putt through here on the weekend as there's always horses to watch out for and today was no different. I usually avoid it on weekends for that reason but I wanted to look at potentially pretty trees so I went anyway....

    When I do encounter horses I stop and shut the bike off. The lady waved me on through though so I fired back up and idled past.....

    My parting shot of the day is from the neighbors at the top of my street....those two trees should really pop in the next week. :flug

    How's this? :dunno

    [​IMG]

    Still not at full peak but with rain forecast for the next three days this may be as good as it gets this time around.....























    ....and with that being a possibility I decided to run the mini around a little bit right after work today. :D
