    that's why we went yesterday..... :norton.

    bike ran great: much smoother cornering, most of the roads I wanted to take were closed, and the guys complained about my lack of consideration to speed limit signs :hide

    Sounds like my style, slow down in the straights, and accelerate in the corners. :clap

    Too bad half of the roads where closed/unpassable: Paint Fork, the tilted bridge, and S. Toe River (the gravel road - due to a landslide)

    somebody joined me for a change:

    [​IMG]

    started off putting my "gardeners" to work: they fell behind a bit lately

    [​IMG]

    as usual not many riding pics, when I ride with others. We started out on Paint Fork, but it's blocked off due to construction... the detour took as back to HWY19 2 miles from our house (after 20 miles of riding) :ace :lol3

    First stop on the S Toe river. The cool little bridge got dropped into the river for safety reasons... and now it's really slick and deep in the water :umph - we all passed trying to cross it.

    two little clowns joined us

    [​IMG]

    and my first time playing with Mica... I know it may not be anything special to you guys

    [​IMG]

    got really good splitting it (he kinds looks like Anthony Bourdain in this pic...)

    [​IMG]

    the pic does not show it, but the water is running over an old wooden, slick and algae overgrown bridge at this point (with big holes before and after the wood)

    [​IMG]

    next stop/turn around: S Toe River Road at the fish Hatchery: closed due to Landslide near the Parkway :lol3
