    we met the owner, her 2 dogs thelma and lousie

    2 dudes and a gal, that had partied there the night before

    private club and we joined


    [​IMG]

    one dude was purty hammered and wanted to ride with us


    :scratch i told him it probably wasn't a good idea, next time

    that was after he'd tried to tell us it was a top less bar we needed to take off our shirts



    as fearless says when red bud is the voice of reason :fpalm

    they were pretty funny


    we waved good bye to the club

    zipping across the mt much like this morning the new to me indian seems to drag more than i think it should

    [​IMG]


    even before we started up this morning it had dragged then going across it drung

    maybe 7 or 8 times, but the thing is some times it feels like its hitting near the floor boards where it should, but more times than not it seems like it's dragging some where in the back

    which is something i'm not used to


    we rolled into helen to late for some tubers

    how about a fuzzy lady


    [​IMG]


    we were thinking we'd stop there for a minute and still get home on the edge of darkness

    but jim parked first i rolled up beside him and said

    your boy's here

    he said what, i said look behind ya

    we were parked right beside his suv :lol3

    i told em again how i thought my bike was dragging on the back side

    laid down in the parking lot to take a look and sure enough i think i know where i'm hitting now

    i'm not sure what the solution is

    i was bitching about it a few weekends ago & will said if it's dragging on the front and the back

    the bike might not be the problem :lol3

    Looks like we all were up there this weekend. Wife and I stayed in Bryson City. I left out Saturday to check out the new section of the Foothills Parkway. After riding the Gap, took a right on Foothills, and the rain started. I gave up on the new section and booked it for the cabin. This was at Newfound Gap. 58 degrees and soaking wet are a bad combination.
