Hulee on her DR200.
James @jrm927 chasing David around the course.
Mo cone killing action:
Rodney threw his big GS around like it was a 250.
Stephen taking James's BMW around the course.
A rocket III would not be my first choice for this course but this guy did just fine.
Between rides was time for socializing.
I decided to do a few last laps around the course. David crashed right in front of me but he was too fast for me picking up his bike before I could stop, put my bike in neutral and turn on my camera.
Don @dredman showed up. I haven't seen him in quite a while. I wish I had taken a better pic.
Stephen and family loading up to go home.
We stopped at a BBQ place in Leeds.
I tried to used my arm as a selfie stick to get a group pic but like most of my selfies, it didn't come out very good and I missed two people in the pic.
I ended up riding home by myself. I didn't want to just slab it home and at the last minute I decided to try a different route home. Reversing the route home would involve a congested area and no really nice roads. I passed the normal exit on I 59 and got off at the next one just a couple of miles up the road. This exit was not congested and led to a nice road.
When this road ended I just started winging it and using the setting sun in the West as my guide. I ended up on some really tiny, out in the sticks roads but it was fun exploring.
I hit route 79 in Locust Fork and then resumed my normal route back home.
Win and his trusty steed strategically in the shade talking the finer points of motorcycling with Natalee
A few more pics from the ride home. Some one flying one of those powered parachutes.
Coming down the mountain towards Huntsville south of the Tennessee river.
Crossing the Tennessee River.
It ended up being a really good day. I got to be outside and enjoy the beeeeeautiful weather. Killing cones was a lot of fun and of course spending time with friends is always enjoyable!
Basking in the knowledge of the motorcycle oracle.
Win and David
Late Lunch Stop
Scroll Down....The man, the myth, the legend, in action.
Listen well grasshopper for the words of wisdom from the motorcycle Oracle

If there was a way to give this 2 likes I would.
I had a great time and was a better rider when I left than when I got there.
I went for a scooter ride with 7 antique Lambrettas. These guys ride hard. All smoking two strokes. I had by far the most power but laid back with some elbow room. They were swarming neighbourhoods like hornets. None of them under 55.
Someone posted a video shot by drone on the Motorcycle Alabama Forums. I tried to post the link here but it won't work. Maybe ADV doesn't allow Vimeo? So here's a link to the post in the MA forum: https://www.motorcyclealabama.com/rides/index.php?topic=4336.msg38151#msg38151
I figured out the problem. I needed to remove the s from https. Now the link works.
I feel like I should say, "I'm sorry for what I said when I was Hangry" to @jrm927 , because it looks like I am yelling at him in this pic.
I guessed "eww that's gross" myself
You don't look like you are yelling nearly as much as I do in this pic:
I have no idea what I was saying in that pic but probably not: "eww that's gross"
Man, great video.. gives me a lot better sense of what's going on than looking at the still shots!
Sorry I missed this.. would have been fun on that SG250.
I saw that from my dad a lot growing up, usually sounded something like this
I’m sure James deserved whatever he was receiving.
It occurred to me today that it's been roughly a year since @Thinwater invited me over to ride a motorcycle. I had never ridden one before. I ended up riding 3 of his and @Pepperlady 's bikes that day: DR200, Himalayan, and CRF250. I appreciate all his mentoring that day and since!
