    We started around Lake James, which we almost take for granted, but it's SO good! After a shred down Fish Hatchery, Rose Creek, and 181 it was off to Maple Sally....mmmmmm, mmmm!

    Maple Sally was bangin' as always... and the color was impressively autumnal even at this late date! After a few minutes we were no longer cold :thumb Who says you can't drift an upright twin 650?

    Maple Sally couldn't be in much better condition... Gaston rips through some (more) turns... the scenery is can be a bit distracting, and now isn't the time to lose your line!

    We proceeded up Edgemont - Lucky does better on roads with more sweeping turns - and ended up on the Parkway amidst what was left of the snow. Gotta love high pressure, as I'm pretty sure we could have seen Charlotte from Grandfather!:wave

    I was hoping GG would post the Pineola Calzone... Gaston does his best to reduce landfill by NEVER taking a to-go box! I guess you'll just have to put up with a Sky Blue Sky... cheers!

    The view from Comer's Rock is worth the walk to the top.

    This is always such a heartwarming sight... at both the beginning and the end of the day.

    But even with his ECWS camo gore-tex I could see where Gaston was heading!

    It wouldn't be "dual sporting" without at least a little of the dual...
