    Looks like a cool movie if it ever gets out.

    My first enduro bike was a 1971 125cc six days steel tank Penton. I still have some of that bike laying around.

    Phil and I are departing on our second annual Father Son Fall Beast Ride. Up to the Smoky's and Deals Gap etc for a few days.

    We are Tail Virgins but looking forward to checking off the square.

    I know Inept is lonewolfing it across Northern GA. Barney and WR are planning something and of course next weekend it is the Vintage days....

    Everyone ride safe and post up pics...

    When ya headed up? I drove the tail today! Not on a bike though :( in a jeep. Check my spot in my sig. I'm staying at Fontana village for the weekend there is a BMW rally group of folks up here too. Talked to a guy on a 950 Adv today, he was the only orange in the area I saw. Might see you guys around. Be safe!

    A British Engineer just started his own business in Afghanistan. He's making land mines that look like prayer mats.



    It's doing well. Business is booming and he says prophets are going through the roof.

    SingleTrackJeff,

    I'll be happy to remove that old steel tank remnant thats just "laying around" off your hands.

    I'm always needing something for these old bikes.

    Let me know what you have.

    Thanks, John

    I have rode the Dragon and Blue Ridge Pkway a few times but I believe my favorite ride up that way is the Cherahola Skyway. The turns are spread out just enough with positive camber banking that really make them a lot of fun to ride. :deal

    Yeah, I was blown away after riding it from Tellico Plains. I agree mo betta than the Dragon, BRP and Blood Mtn (fun wise). The BRP is hard to beat for the vistas.

    Have fun up at Tellico on the Dragon, BRP, Cherohola Pkwy, and everything surrounding it. Awesome riding there, I go every spring for a week to drag knees/pegs on the Dragon and then DS through the mountains!

    Plan "B" for cutting bars. Buy a $5 metal cutting blade for the miter saw and bam! Bars complete.

    I assure you that Inept is NOT lonewolfing it... :D I am sure he is well taken care of and I wish I was up there with my crew because I know they are having a blast. You and Phil will have fun especially if you love curves like I do. Just remember to watch your speed and crossing double yellow lines....not that you would do any of that stuff. :wink:

    Guys, Those are some very nice classic vintage Penton Pix. I'll try to put some of my own here so everyone can have a good laugh. It's possible others on here have some of those classic photos they would like to share too.:huh
