I “liked” but not the last part
Stuff happens. Glad you are okay. Parts can be bought and installed.
How do you like that retro rear fender kit? I want to get a blue one as soon as they are back in stock.
My ride ended on a sour note about 2 miles away from home. I turned right at a stop with a view so not really a stop and I the rear got loose which I usually catch My butt hit the ground and I popped right up and stood there watching the bike slide, in a bad way Nobody hurt and nothing that doesn’t belong to me got damaged so that was all good. Play stupid games and you win stupid prizes sometimes.

I feel the same way, thank you.
I like the DSA Concepts rear fender, works great and I think it looks great too.
Glad the damaged parts were the ones that don't bleed.
Glad that you're OK.
Hey guys I want to give an enthusiastic thumbs up to Hunt’s Lodge Motorcycle Campground in Telico Plains, at the end of the Cherohala Skyway. Excellent cabins with power, heat, and AC - PLUS mini fridges and microwaves. Big clean bath house, towels supplied for my use, including some old ratty “bike rags”. Lots of tent and hammock camping as well. Free coffee, oatmeal, maps, and there are spare moto fluids available too. The guy running the place was welcoming and showed me around. A+ would stay again!
It’s only an hour and a half ride from deals gap, via the cherohala skyway and other really fun roads.
Ironworks grill has a nice outdoor patio and decent local beers on tap too. Just bar food, but totally passable.
Just down the road is a little road side stand that's been there forever (I've been riding the area since the late 90's), Tellico Beach Drive-in. Great burgers, good o-rings, and you can grab a picnic table next to the river. Love supporting friendly local folks!
Been at work trying to catch up.... hope you ok, sucks about the bike, but it can be fixed a lot easier than you. still looks like a epic ride..
Having a great time exploring old stomping grounds... and making new ones!
Also finding lots of cool breweries.
I recently relocated to the Charlotte area and your vids are inspiring me to head a little west. One thing I'll give you kudos for is your videos don't mess around. You show the beautiful road you're on with non-intrusive music. Straight, to the point, no gibby-gabb back story about the road, just you, your bike, the road and some subtle music. Perfect.
Thanks for the compliments! Yes, go west, young man! The entire western sliver of NC west of Hickory is chock full of great paved and offroad treats to explore. Also the northwest corner of SC is good as well as northeast Georgia. You have a lot to explore, get going!
Great road. I'll be riding it next week
Give a shout if you want to tag along a locals ride. I’m in Little Switzerland. I am also in Charlotte and could give you some pointers on good roads getting TO the ridge where the better riding begins.
I will do just that. And will ya look at that? A town in NC called Little Switzerland. Who knew?
I’m mostly doing local riding due to my other two-wheeled obsession (triathlons) but I’m bowing out of the season after mid July. Too many miles to explore on my V Strom.
@JRowland Here are the fruits of the last couple of days. https://www.relive.cc/view/vdvmDZo1mNq https://www.relive.cc/view/vQvxBGL7mB6 I really need to get better at this but I had a great time today any many thanks for the invite! Guess who almost ran out of gas getting back.....
