    I can help fill a day including Hurricane Creek if that’s how you end up doing it. Running that and some other fun stuff as a loop Saturday. I’ll post the track afterwards if all goes well but whatever you need my way I’d be glad to help.

    Ok Saturday anyone coming to ride let’s meet at the 209 Cafe, there is plenty of parking either around back or on the side.

    Haywood 209 Cafe
    (828) 627-3331
    https://goo.gl/maps/GBMu9Gtbr5H7S3rG9

    We’ll leave there at 10 and head straight to Hurricane Creek. Here is roughly the route I have planned, I say roughly because there should be a few riders who know the area and we may improvise :-)

    Your screen name is ringing a bell from years past?? Cant remember exactly. Were you into the Supermoto scene here in MI??

    Also, I'm in love the area. Been riding around there for almost 20 years. Loosely eyeballing real estate in the area and weighing pros/cons of NC vs TN (:ear).

    Took a spin up Lakeview Drive and then river road to knock the dust off the bike

    The weather is fantastic. Great visibility.

I already told them I be there... :dirtdog :devildogYOU are not going unless you get your chores done, but wife I got new tires for my bike I need to get them installed so I can go. I DONT CARE!!@!!! the grass needs mowing and clean the driveway, don't forget to take the trash off. Can I go if I get it done... I WILL THINK ABOUT IT!!!!! Make you feel like teenager again . Man its fun to be a grownup. So I mowed the yard clean the driveway and got the trash loaded up...drop it off on the way to work tomorrow. and still had time for a short ride. Bad thing got to work tomorrow and didn't get my new tires on. Really don't care still going riding Saturday...:lol3 IMG_0744.JPG

    I took half a day and got most of my chores done today. Got a little ride to the tag office and the inspection garage, fall has definitely arrived. Gonna be some wet leaves and rocks, get that front tire done at least. No pressure :-)
