    some little temporary help for my worn out cush-drive... finally an explanation for the tight spots on my chain.
    I guess Jeff at @procycle needs to put one of his fancy red ones on the side for me

    Um, err, didn’t quite make it home. I think the clutch decided it was retirement age.

    At least I have a tree to wait under.

    BBQ sounds excellent. Kim rode on home and got the truck. Many, many people stopped to offer help.

    so, that was yesterday after the Guzzi rally.... lunch in SC. Just because.

    "dog is my co-pilot"
    and yes, he is tethered, but he hates googles and will rub his head on my arm if they are one (at least he is smart enough to face backwards if it's dusty or rainy)

    How was the BBQ?

    I've eaten at the cafe in the back of the gas station next door but haven't tried anything from that trailer yet...

    slow, but good. Great smokey brisket and pulled pork, fried Okra was delish

    just the jalapeno poppers were "meh"

    Porter loved his lunch too :D

    ended up going up Cumberland with Alan and @enduro0125 to spread some more of Hunter's ashes
    (I wanted to do go to Ophir where @NC Rick spread his ashes before, but that was too far)

    I think we picked a good spot. Miss that damn man...

    Union Canyon... how hard can it be???

    [​IMG]

    [​IMG]

    not too bad

    [​IMG]

    I did walk some sections first to make sure I can ride it both ways... I may be an idiot, but I am not stupid

    [​IMG]

    [​IMG]

    well, I was going downhill... that water-crossing was not bad at all, but it didn't look like it was getting easier and down the hill the crossing would be bigger. Nobody knew were is was.it was afternoon, so I played it save and turned around. But I am going to go back and do it on a lighter bike.

    Finished up at Hartman Rocks - for some softer single track fun

    [​IMG]

    [​IMG]

    till I ended up on the wrong trail.... luckily it's not one way and nobody saw me turning around - again :lol3
