    That’s very possible! East Port Marina took a beat down from the same Feb 6 rain. I talked to the owner Sunday and it was the floating trees from the West Fork that caused the damage. He’s going to rebuild and move everything over a bit, toward the East Fork.

    Out riding with Pops this weekend...

    "Hey! Look over there! That looks like a cave!" :wink:

    "Let's see if we can ride in..." :pynd

    IMG_7294.JPG

    Well... we did, but not very far. Had to turn around in the entrance. 30 feet or so and it dead ends :muutt

    IMG_7295.JPG
    The next crack in the rocks was too tight to try. Maybe we'll cut the bars and try next time :dunno

    IMG_7300.JPG

    What a cool spot. We've been within 1/4 mile of this rock formation, at least half a dozen times.... but somehow missed it every time! It's permanently on our "loop" now :thumb

    "Cave" riding in Tennessee, less than 20 miles from home :ricky It's kinda like "Rock City" ...but you can take motorcycles! :lol3

    Cumberland County, Tennessee. It’s part of a trail system we’ve rode for years, but has recently been logged ...so we’re re-exploring the area. If you’d like to ride up some weekend we would be happy to take you there!

    Here's my take on the matter. There's more to explore.

    I don't see the point of taking the bikes into these tight places? I'd get off and walk...Squeezing the bikes in and roasting the clutch to go slower than walking speed for 20 yards until you get stuck and have to back out seems like a pain in the ass.

    Just riding around and saw a crack/hole and went to explore. As an old enduro rider I like tight spaces. I sometimes find it easier to stay on the bike than trying to find a flat solid spot or tree where my bike won't fall over. My joy of exploring far outweigh any pain. It's a Honda so no plates were harmed. Also my son wanted my photo in "The hall of the mountain king" so....

    Passed by here many times but this time we stopped. 55 Chevy I think. Beautiful day for a street ride, we saw many riders out. 195 miles of fun with my son. 20200301_134412.jpg

    I got out for a quick ride near home today. Only 36 miles but it felt good. February has been so wet and cold that there weren't many opportunities to ride.

    Still a few flakes hanging around at the lower elevations.

    Still plenty in the mountains.

    I’m hoping everyone is OK, after last night’s storms.

    I just got to work in Lebanon, and pretty much nobody is here, apparently several lost houses here.
    I live 40 miles away, we just had a pretty strong storm and some flooded roads, but no damage that I noticed at 6am.
    Drove the pickup to work in case flooding was more than my little car could handle.
    Sitting in my office in the dark now...

    The area around 109 is pretty well trashed.. the auto auction as well as several businesses are demolished.

    I'm near Gladeville and work in Smyrna. No damage around me but some of the guys who work here and have to come through Lebanon could not get here. As Don said, 109 maybe still closed and 231 has debris everywhere.

    I certainly feel for Middle Tennessee, we had a big one rip through West Tennessee in 2006 that took 28 lives. It hurts for a long time. :2cry

    I hope I'm not kicked out of the club, being so close to Ky, part of my ride was in the blue grass state. I rode up to take The Trace through Land Between the Lakes yesterday. Boy, was it a good day to be of work! 20200303_112108.jpg 20200303_112049.jpg

    TVA must think that old turbine blades make a good tourist attraction. This one is at Pickwick dam.
