    Heading off on that route in April. It will be my fiancé's first long trip on our new Wing, so very excited about it.

    Riding the HILL as some of us call it is wonderful with the fall colors.
    Seeing some of the restraints in your ride report you owe it to your self to stop by Pam's Hateful Hussy in Talihina, great food and fun surroundings !

    Cool writeup!

    I rode the Talimena just by chance a couple of summers ago, by virtue of picking the squiggly lines on the map. :D It was the highlight of my day. That was part of an 18-day cross-country excursion on my Weestrom. Had lunch that day at the Hateful Hussy Diner in Talihina and as a bonus was treated to a parade as I ate my burger.

    Here's the relevant section of my RR:

    Great pics! A good buddy and I rode up from Longview, TX and had a grand time on that road last spring. Cheers.
