    Looks like an awesome day Cuttle.

    We tend to ride east of you guys more often than not due to our schedules, but Missus Sweet' loves WNC. We gotta head that way soon.

    Great pics. It was a WET day on the mountains yesterday. I was doing a bit of trail work and couldn't believe all the water flowing everywhere.

    Might have to get out on the bike a bit this afternoon before the cold & snow returns.

    today, I decided to go off by myself - I blew of the boys (sorry guys), decided to have a late start and just put around in Madison County... which turns out to be a good thing (more about this later)

    Sunday and late start also means my hubby wants "Eggs Bacondicts", so I guess I'll start with the food pic

    Thanks girls! :clap

    Let me tell you about a bit about Madison County: it's rural. Rural - like 3 towns, 2 of them have 3 traffic lights, 2 bigger grocery stores. Some of the kids spend over 90 min on the bus to go to school (unless it's cancelled for icy roads). The whole county has 452 sq miles, and tons of little roads.

    So, running into people you know on a back-road is not something that happens every day...

    Either way, I just got back from Paw Paw, crossing the French Broad and I see two guys pushing a yellow beemer. Looks familiar. :huh.

    FUCK!!!! There is Shane, holding trotting down the hill after his bike. :eek1

    He went down on oil and banged up his shoulder.

    helmet is done too

    not perfect, but I made a sling work with this

    Dave got the bike in the meantime - he likes it, sorry Shane you left the keys in :lol3

    And a few hours ago...

    For now, he is living on our couch till Urgent Care is opening tomorrow. I'll keep you guys posted, but the guess is a broken collar bone.

    Hell of a spot to do an oil change. Good luck at the clinic, hope it's nothing serious.

    Dang, sorry to hear (and see) that. Shane, maybe you'll get lucky and it's not broken!

    Nice teamwork up there, you guys. :clap
