As soon as she said she was ok, I told her thumbs up.
David on his Vstrom 1000.
I was down and gone before anyone got back from the creek. I wanted to go ahead and try and get out of the way of the dual sports.
@TheSweeper. Just watched your 421 vid. Nice. The Bristol side is now finished. Haven’t seen it in such good condition since forever. In fact the entire run both mountains is Barber quality surface since last year.
I've been up a couple of times sense they paved it. I love that road! As much fun as the Dragon without the side show.
Rode it back in June and it was a fantastic ride. Planning on going back next year again.
We never had to wait long…. I for one always need a break!!!!
I think it might have made her top 10 days EVER....in her short 16 years of life!
I don't have one of me on it, yet. LOL Just got it home and cleaned up a bit.
Maybe that explains the big smile on Hulee's face all day.
I didn't post this pic because it is a bit blurry but it's still a great pic so......
As for your new bike, great choice If I was looking for a new streetbike for myself, the Z400 would be near the top of my list.
I'm impressed by anyone who rides a big adventure bike on that trail. I was glad to be on my 300 pound KLX.
That Tiger is a really nice looking bike.
Right back at you!
One of the reasons I set up and post these rides is because of all the great folks that keep showing up. I could go out and do all these rides by myself but sharing the adventure with other riders just makes it more fun for me. If I occasionally have to wait for slower riders or spend time helping fix a flat that's all part of the riding with a group. Helping other riders have a fun ride something I really enjoy doing. Looking back at my 40+ years of riding I can remember having some really fantastic rides because someone else took the time and effort to set up riding events and/or lead rides.
I think it's fantastic that Hulee came along! I was impressed with her riding skills. And waiting the few seconds that we did a couple of times was NO problem at all, seriously. I was also impressed with the other big adv bike riders: the Himalayas, the V-strom, and the Tiger 800. Had a good time spending time with every one of y'all. Like Thinwater said earlier: "y'all some good folks, the lot of ya."
And the ride made me more determined to get something at least 250 pounds lighter and more suitable for off-road. After seeing the trouble y'all had in the whale snot, sand and rutted trail, I'm glad I passed on going down to the river with y'all. Riding that big 600 pound Super Tenere 1200 at age 65 sure makes me heed Clint Eastwood's admonition that "a man's got to know his limitations." And thanks again klaviator for organizing another great ride.
Congrats Natalee, that’s a cool looking machine!
Thanks I’ve been happy with it so far.
I can't believe it's already fall. It looks like a busy month coming up. Here's my riding plans for the next month.
I'll be heading to Tellico Plains Tomorrow for a few days of Dual Sport riding. Plan on riding to Deal's Gap on Thursday.
The following weekend is the Barber Vintage Festival. My plan is to go Saturday and maybe Friday as well.
10/16 Saturday. I'll probably set up a local Street ride
Maybe back to Tellico the weekend of 10/22 - 10/24.
After that just local rides for a while.
Its good to be the king.
Hey @Thinwater and @Pepperlady thank you so much, this is awesome! My wife and Bert loved it too. You meet the nicest folks on ADV Rider.
No, its good to be retired!
