He was not going to make 3 days of hard riding. From Fly’s we went up Leipers creek to Bear Creek then down to Thompson station. Big $ in that area.

    A continuation of @oldskool63 post from above. Little round tripper to Alpine, TN and back to NoMS.
    Up to the Danville Ferry, over to Alpine, back down to Center Hill Dam and a little Natchez Trace Pkwy to Pickwick Dam.

I said no, I meant to come here! Had a guard goat outside but I didn’t get his picture...he didn’t look too friendly!...KLR turned over 33,000 miles on this ride...

    I thought goats and KLR’s were related? :imaposer

    We honestly call my buddy's KLR "Da Goat"
    Myself and several friends all have them, and I gotta say, for my budget, if I could only have one bike, my green KLR is completely safe. I have no plans of ever getting rid of it, but rather continuing to modify and improve it. Mine has about 33k on it as well, and has seen a lot of spectacular places, and about 30 different states.
    It is a near perfect bike for TN with so many types of roads. :cool:

    Chief,
    I agree...I own three bikes that cover all types of East TN riding, but if I could have only one it would definitely be the KLR...cheap to buy...cheap and easy to maintain...fun for the dollar ratio is high...

    I'll keep the hot and dry as long as it wants to stay. I'm not ready for cold and wet. All my hobbies are outside kinda hobbies and cold/wet kinda ruins it. Maybe I should move to New Mexico....
