    Stopped into Nashville (nearest international airport) to leave the bike while I took a side trip to Hungary. Got some new tires at Bloodworth Motorcycles and found a photo op at Marathon Village before leaving town again.

    True. Several locations in Knoxvegas sell their bacon. My favorite location to pick some up is Cork's in Turkey Creek! :-)

    The historical markers around the state can be interesting--especially those about the Civil War.

    Did that! The C14 and 690 have departed. Really wanted to be down to one bike. The AT is my compromise.

    By the end of next Summer, I should know if this is the right bike. At this time, I'm confident.

    Cool! I'd be interested to hear what you think about it along the way...especially as compared to the C14...

    I'll try. Right now i can tell ya the cruise control is going to be missed. There is a throttle stop thingy.

    Also, and as expected, the AT isn't egging me on to ride at 100mph. You know that simply inadvertently leaning on the throttle can run up speed with the C14.
