    It felt good to be out on some twisty pavement....but you never know what may be lurking around the bend. :huh

    I wonder if he'll even be able to use much of TN now?....they went on a mission to pave every road in that state since he plotted the original TAT.

    :lol3 I don't know how many more rides are in that old thing...actually I'm thinking about getting another land barge :patch an old Gold Wing or something.

    Not Sassafras...Skyuka Mtn just above the junction of US74 & I-26..and yes, everybody needs a new bike! :norton

    what's the mileage by now on your DR? :ear

    gold wing? you need suspenders, regrow your beard, and a teddy-bear harness....

    :rofl An old 'wing would make a good 'tow vehicle' for taking a smaller dual sport out West. :wink: My old XS can pull a trailer but....

    Not sure the exact mileage on the DR but it's in the mid 40s....and 3rd gear has been broken for almost 1/2 of that! :huh :lol3
    ...still runs pretty strong tho....

    I think you should get yourself an Ural Hack with a "flatbed" and put the DR on it.... :deal


    and who needs a 3rd gear anyway? :D

    :lol3 If I had a hack it would have to be used for the dogs...and a Ural can only pull itself @ about 50mph...how slow would it be with a trailer? :huh


    Oh, 3rd gear?....yeah, you're right, who needs it?! :1drink

    [​IMG]


    Don't forget...that bike has a home-made ignition too. :lol3
