    A couple weeks ago my uncle, dad and I made a run out to North Carolina & Tennesee for a few days of riding in the Smoky's Mountains. I thought I'd share some pictures from the trip.

    Camp - setup up at Ironhorse Motorcycle Lodge...

    Geez Steve - looks like a fair amount of fog/clouds rolling in! We hit parts that Saturday we were there that looked like that...plus some heavy rain.

    Yes, there was rain also...not a great deal of fun. I hate to admit it, I baled after 120 miles or so. I really don't mind the rain, but riding in continuous fog get a little tiring! :wink:
