    I'll make it a point to drop by for a visit when I'm up there during the off season.

    Beautiful cool, foggy weather for a ride, I see.

    Don't worry, tedder would never say that to anyone's face--he's much too big of a pussy for that. He only makes snide comments about other people behind their backs.

    And yes, tedder, I would love the opportunity to say that to you in person, not behind your back where you couldn't hear it. :deal

    Yep, I've noticed that the "decent" weather can really thin out the Squids and the Squirrels. :D

    The parking lot at Deal's looks outright comfortable.

    Mike and his wife at Tellico Motorcycle Outfitters are the nicest people in town. He does a lot for ADV community.

    I had a chance to ride the Dragon last Friday. But, thanks in no small part to this thread, we ended up close by but with equally awesome (or better) roads all to ourselves. No cars, no bikes, no trucks, no cops and no photographers. Just warm weather, crystal blue skies and spectacular roads all to ourselves.

    So to everybody flocking there and leaving the rest of the state open, I just want to say thanks. :lol3

    I like Mike! :nod

    If you are traveling some distance to ride these roads, swing by his place as it is likely you'll meet some of the local ADV riders or be able to pick up that thing that you forgot to pack.

    Bumpers came out great. :thumb

    It's a waste of a perfectly good motorcycle. How stupid can you be to replace the rear suspension with rigid frame members? I really hope this bobber/cafe craze goes away quickly. The original cafe racers were about performance. The trend as it is now is to take a perfectly functional motorcycle, ruin the suspension, ruin the ergonomics, ruin the styling, paint it with a spray can and think you're badass.

    Man, y'all have have a rough weekend or the Metamucil hasn't kicked in or what? At least the guy is riding the thing.

    Not a problem. I have absolutely no idea where we were most of the time. We pulled off the highway, unloaded the bikes and just started riding down every road that looked interesting until it got late then dead reckoned our way back. We passed a Pisgah National Forest sign at some point and went over a dam somewhere else. That is the extent of my knowledge as to where we were. No GPS, our navigation method was "y'all think we can find a way to get over there?" :lol3
