The Weather Channel has suns lined up through Sunday, or they did this morning.
sounds good to me
of course that's if I can get away from phreakwife for the day
now how can I piss her off so bad she'll be glad to send me away for the day [rubs chin in deep thought]
Saturday or Sunday?
I would like to ride this weekend! Post up the details.
I can probably do either day. I have to get some chores done.
I'm also interested in checking out other areas. I notice you're in Canton. I would be willing to head out to Haywood County. I have always wanted to explore the Harmon Den area or anywhere, really. However, I would be glad to ride around here if you want to do that.
Only 40 days until Brown Mountain reopens.
I'd love to ride Sunday if that's when you all will be out.
You got some nice dual sportin roads up there to share with a newbie ?
I'm in Charlotte so I'll have to leave early, but just say when and where.
In spite of the chilly forecast, Sunday sounds good to me, too. How does 11 o'clock sound? Can we start in Morganton? I'm flexible.
As it stands right now I should be able to ride Sunday. I will watch the thread and post up tommorrow.
tomorry don't look so good to me
Sunday around 11:00 is much mo better
pick a spot and if I'm even close to free I'm there (the wife is sick, so so my "free" status changes momentarily)
Pick a spot in Morganton
where ya wanta head?
OK, K-Mart @ 11:00 a.m.
I generally get started with Maple Sally Rd. From there, I'm sort of spontaneous but the general idea was to work my way over to Linville Falls and come back to Morganton via Old 105. I have been itching to check out this Pilot Ridge Road, purely out of curiosity. If I can, I will do some ice/snow recon tomorrow.
I'm looking forward to it.
Maple Sally Rd ?
Is that anywhere near the infamous Maple Grove Church Rd ?
I've been dying to ride that with some Dual Sports
The very same.
Wish we could make it tomorrow, but I have a sick daughter. Have a safe ride !
Don & Lesa
I'm questionable now too
phreakwife just got outta the hospital a week ago
last night she comes down with the dreaded intestinal flu, also known as the "Puke & Shits"
depends on how she feels tomorrow
also depends if I develop symptoms :eek1
not having any reason to pay attention in Morganton before ....
it looks like the K-Mart is off 181 going out of town towards Linville?
so you'll be the one inside drinking their YUMMY coffee?
the one with the fresh brewed coffee & just baked doughnut concession out by the road?
K-Mart is on 181 on the right heading north toward the mountains. It is the last thing on the way out of town, so to speak.
Hope your wife feels better.
:eek1 Accuweather.com doesnt show morganton getting out of the 30's all day Sunday
How hardcore are you guys ?
wunderground says 40's, but I ain't riding in Morganton anyway
check Little Switzerland or Linville for a better picture, now we're talking about 31 by 1:00PM
lemme find some snow pics
not so snowy, but icy and brrr chilly
That's cool. Given the temps, it might be a short ride, but I live here. My man in Jonas Ridge said the snow and ice were mostly gone.
If I were going a long distance for a short ride, I would bag myself. I will still swing by K-Mart at 11, maybe grab a biscuit.
10:00 and still only 36 in Charlotte
Please let me know when you are going to make this route again folks.
I have been wanting to meet some more locals and itching to try both old 105 and Maple Grove Church Rd.
Looks like the weather is going to be perfect for riding !(30 - 40) At least it's not 30 and snowing like last time. Hell I forgot, that was good riding weather too !!!!! Be safe !!
P.S. Takem' in some snow, toughen them up a little !!!
