    speaking of sxs's

    Friday I loaded the buggy and busted a tire on the trailer

    made it to Walmart with the tire and wheel by 6:10 (called ahead) website said they closed at 7


    but they turned me away, long story short I found a over priced wheel and tire at tractor supply

    6am Saturday we were on the road, royal blue here we come

    4 hours later we rolled into the hotel parking lot & unloaded

    then rode over to where the rest of the bunch waited at a cabin at a campground on the other side of 75


    hugs and laffs we were on the trail

    pretty place

    by the time i'd got to the top

    the broke axle had wore a hole in the wheel

    yelp I was on a roll

    we jerked the axle out threw it in the back of the buggy

    borrowed a wheel and tire

    still had a great day

    even robin was having fun

    but they did call around and find us a place in spruce pines

    we rode over and as we pulled into the lot, bill stopped short, jim ran into him and dropped his bike:muutt

    my dumbass helped pick it up before I thought of taking a picture :baldy

    as we took turns checking in with 2 nice ladies running the desk

    I admired the local crafts

    [​IMG]


    I think it was pine valley but it's on the right bout a 1/2 mile from Walmart (give or take)

    decent priced decent rooms, nice folks

    we unloaded, rode on into downtown spruce pines

    [​IMG]

    so we walked in the ac felt awesome

    we ordered some drinks and a appetizer

    when this guy walked up & said do you know mattew and tommy

    I said hell I know you, we're both members of the M.O.B.


    don't know if he's on here or not (but I bet he is) another mark


    [​IMG]

    from there the gal i'd talked to earlier said we had to try the drive inn

    so we rode out of town


    [​IMG]


    & u turned onto the upper loop tru town

    when we realized we sorta in a parade

    there were 2 of these

    [​IMG]


    the drive inn had a good crowd and a band
