I know... I find this to be the perfect excuse for hording
close, Blue Mountain in Weaverville
A wonderful establishment!
cold ride this morning... and it's almost time to play hooky
You spelled hockey wrong.
Nice! I'm taking my Bonneville out for a spin tomorrow, i've got to convince my buddy to go early(he doesn't like the cold)..
I found this road, HWY 197 on my way back to Fl from NC last week. Just by chance I found it - I had planned to ride from Marion, NC and part of the SEAT before slabbing it back to Fl. On my over to Hot Springs, NC I saw this road going south out of Burnsville, and thought, "why not". I remarked to someone it was one of the best motorcycle roads I have ever been on. Amazing.
I meant to add some context to this and a quote...I was trying to quote from a post around page 60 or so.
Anyway, amazing road.
love that road - it can be on either end in 20 something minutes
I love it, too!!!
The photo of the switchbacks doesn't come close to doing it justice, though...what an excellent ride!
This was the only traffic I saw on a Monday morning....
So I stopped and watched. The loader pulled forward, backed up, pulled forward, backed up...then he sees me sitting there and waves me through. I stopped and asked if he needed me to hook it to my bike :)

I can't find the original video I made about 8 years ago, but I re-did it in 2015....
(there is a gate to the development and if you climb up on the pillar you get this view)
oh and I just put the hack into a ditch....
and I wasn't even on it
(It's fine, I rode it out)
They were moving in my new McMansion. I hope to be moved in by next Monday.
Sounds like an adventure ride to me. Got it out with a one wheel peel.
some pics from yesterday - the plan was to switch bikes in Black Mountain, which is 20 min from work
somewhere on the BRP
If you look closely you can see the hill I live on just west of the big interstate cut in the distance
228A near Little Switzerland
I know, I know, I said that bike it too nice to ride on gravel... but that was the most convenient connector
time for new rubber, since that thing is seriously embarrassingly flat (I guess Kansas and Indiana will do that)
Zen Moto in Black Mountain. Earl put the smoke back into the hack for me...
@Honkylicious got me a baggy
oh and the story about the hack in the ditch...
Since I trailed the hack to Zen Moto I didn't have any ballast in the chair - and that chair is light. No huge deal, just a thing to remember. On the way home a trash panda ran out in front of me and I grab a big old handful of front brake (brand new ss lines) and no rear/chair ... bike wobbles (off course), chair comes up, I lounge halfway into the chair to get it down.... coon is fine - my ego slightly dented. All good - just a reminder.
Get home, park in front of the gate and let it idle; checked twice that it's sitting just fine. I walk to the gate and it takes off backwards ... it basically does a 180 around my car into the ditch. Without hitting my car or the culvert. The two other options were: down the road into a hill or off the bank across the driveway. Lottery ticket time?
glad it got new tires... I wobbled it right out of it and parked it in gear
You can’t blame me this time.
not this time - it's the runaway hack
and time for
the 2019 RDV thread is up....
