Awesome! Very familiar with that area, though I've only gone up Rich mountain on foot. Spent one of the most miserable nights of my life sleeping in that fire tower during a huge rainstorm in spring of 2012. Highway 29 is a BLAST, my grandpa lives off that road in Spring Creek, and when my sister and I were kids we used to slide all around the backseat and count the squiggly signs. I have been in the Z a couple times but never on two wheels. Next time!
I honked on my way by your grandpa's place yesterday on my ride home!
Oh yeah I forgot I already mentioned all that in this thread! Hah. Good, he's coming in to town here to visit this week for the first time since I got the bike, and I'm gonna get a EARFUL about safety. But both his kids (my mom and uncle) had bikes for years, so he really doesn't have much of a leg to stand on. He means well.
I couldn't remember who and I almost stopped in front of the sign for a pic but 209 was empty and I was having too much fun. I'll get one soon, I'm on that road a lot.
95%. I requested that stand up riding be limited. Still a little sore if I walk too far.
Still able to wheelie though.

Some damn fine ones too, wish I got a couple on camera!
man after my own heart right there...
Thanks for the reminder. Did most of those roads today with a few friends. They never get old.
Nice. Where's that?
Went a little North and east today. Amazing roads in Avery county. See if you can guess which road these pics are from.
Between blowing rock and grandfather mt.
Love that stretch!!
You win! And, yes it was glorious. No cars seen either run.
( oh, and I did sneak a BRP pic in too)
What time did you take those photos? I went through there around 4. Did you see the Damoclean limb over the road right at the Watauga County line?
My photo is from just off Round Mountain Road, Blue Mill, I think.
I went through around 3:30 I suppose. I did not see anything suspicious limb-wise, but I was focusing on the corners pretty intently today.
We rode it yesterday on our XT225’s. I would recommend coming from the Rye Cove side as the downhill section to Trot valley is a bit gnarly. The creek crossing at the end is awesome.
I remember chasing you down through there one time... you were hauling!!!
Lunch run to Roan Mtn and Smoky Mtn. Bakers via Avery county. On the way back the road that’s always twice the fun.
