Well what can I say, been having fun on the 690. It has taken many naps but I am quick to get it up. (If no one sees it napping, it never really happened) Which brings me to the first photo. Trailered Katie M down to Ashville, NC for a few days on the BRP with a couple other FFs. Tired and rushed to get the bike out of the PU, nap time in back of truck. Karate Chop from the rail of truck to radiator cap...almost decapitated the filler neck. Bummer, quick trip to Home Depot for some JB Weld. Next AM is repair time. As it is raining Katie M comes into the Hotel room for repairs. Inside Outside As we didnt ride this day we went to a Football game an hour away. As luck would have it my nephews team won the game. He ran a fumble back 60 yards for a TD. Woo Hoo. Go Tusculum The score at half time. The sun rose, the clouds parted, the roads dried and the temps rose. Time to ride. The BRP and nearby roads paved and unpaved provided thrills and smiles. Had fun in NC and made the return trip to NH uneventfully. Clough Park today. Took a new way out of the area and found some Class VI roads. One led to this sign Apparently these guys manage forest land. They seem to care not if you drive on their roads. Searching for all their properties.
