    That was my dual sport before I got the DR. It is a nice gravel-running bike.

    My guess would be that tress fell over and Gvt. shutdown prevents clean up so they just close the roads. Paved bent creek road had trees down laying partly on the road and people were driving around it.

    I dont have any spectacular stories or anything, but Sunday here in WNC it was about 62 degrees. I rode to the top of a mountain near Joyce Kilmer to the Maple Springs Overlook. The sign has said closed now for 2 years, since the fires. As many of you probably know, the observation deck is fine to walk on. You guys know where this is?

    It's a bacon-dict. Just a poached egg, muffin, bacon and hollandaise ...

    Never had it sounds delicious. Well I've had eggs, bacon, and a muffin. Just not all together at once.
