    Sorry fellas, I'm currently in route to TN (around Nashville area) to ride a D/S loop near Fly, TN tomorrow. I would have posted the chit last night but I was done prepping/packing @ about 2:30am. :huh I'm fookin tared. :deal


    Nevertheless... here's my pics...

    Wednesday morning... getting ready for the ride to Blountstown to meet up wif the P'cola FFs... :clap

    She wanted to come along but the cart wasn't street legal. :cry Too bad, the loop would have probably lasted 8 months if we would have waited for the cart to catch up along the route. :D

    Here's a few shots of the FFs negotiating a RR crossing that was being repaired. This road was supposedly "closed" but, umm, we knew better than that... :evil

    Neat old building we found along the route... IIRC, the 1st stop for the night was about 60 miles from this point. :wink:

    He looked like he was having a great time riding the Vee along the paved roads. :clap

    A few dirty pics on the way to Opelika...

    The first few days on the route, the dirt roads were a little dusty... they wouldn't get any better until the last couple of days of the trip...

    Posted, well, just because... :D

    Here we are along a few of the 4329 breaks along the route... :lol3

    Fookin dirt matches his goatee... hard to tell if it's dirt or hair... :rofl

    [​IMG]

    Interesting place along the route... I was a little concerned when he said if we wanted to see him discharge a black powder gun. I thought one of us would be one of his targets... :eek1 Instead I reckon there was a bullseye on the abandoned building adjacent to the general/gun/snack/beer/cig/notary store. :D

    Made it to Cheaha SP the second night of the loop...

    Now that's a bad hair day right there. :rofl

    Hey, looks like you guys had a great time, there's nothing quite like a multi-day adv ride with your buds. Glad everyone made it back ok. I was watching to see if anything went amiss, happened to be in Western N.C. over the weekend with a truck and trailer, woulda been happy to lend a hand.

    I did ride the XL around the house (Non ATGATT), on Sunday September 4th.
    That's the extent of my riding for this event. :lol3
