So I'll eventually get around to posting about the Fuzzy Beaver & the DualSportin the Free State event. But for now! This is a few pics from today's/yesterday's ride. I was poking about in the N. Ga John's Mtn area.

This is one of many switchbacks on Pocket Rd., lots of curves and I only passed one car on the ridge.




Lo! & Behold! A lake on the other side of Sugar Valley!




Truly an old school, honor system at display here, you can still find these types of places. The cokes in the old machine are still $.60



This lil coke machine was perkin right along, just waiting for a photo :p I didn't feel like guzzling a 12 oz. coke :/






Ice!!!!! Lots of it!!!! Woot Woot! Yes, I stole 2 pieces just for my self






Yes, I wanted a pic of me, it didn't turn out so well. So my braid had to do :p



Ooooo, I like cranes. How tall and dramatic they can be in eye



Ah yes, this is my beacon home. Lookout Mtn in the distance, just on the other side is home. I believe everyone has that special kinda landmark that is the significant point in the homestretch of the journey. When I see Lookout Mtn I know just how far from home I really am. I like that.



Altho, I was blocking several mailboxes and apparently one of them was an older ladies' in which she was waiting for me to move my ass bout taking a stupid pic. :p

First Solo overnight ride :D

It's been a minute, but I've really been struggling with taking care of my bikes which is why I've not been posting some trips on here. This past week tho I had an opportunity to meet up with some friends in Asheville, N.C. I have never been on a solo overnight trip, especially with people I barely know. The '81 Honda Hawk is my big girl that had been running well for the past month, so I made plans for Asheville!

Then Monday night (planning on leaving Tuesday morning) I noticed gas leaking from behind the carb on a gasket . So I panicked, and fiddled around with it. I decided to wait until the morning to see what the decision would be in either taking the car or the bike.
Morning came, no leaks! and I felt soooooo proud of myself. Woo Hoo! After figuring out the Wolfman Tailbag for 20 minutes, I was finally on my way to Asheville

These pics aren't great, but the iPhone is all I got



This was taken on 64 at the first TVA dam, my first break after leaving Chattanooga. More to come

Also, the main reason why my friends were up in Asheville is b/c they were doing a Micro-Brewery tour

This was taken across from the gas station I was filling up at, which had ethanol free gas. The Hawkette was a happy camper. My route was to stick to Hwy 64 until I saw signs for Asheville, since I don't have a GPS. It was super green in every yard and soooo pretty with the fruit trees blooming and forsythias, flowering quinces and other pretty shrubs.



This wayside off of 64 was pretty cool heading up into the mountains. This one is prettier w/out the Hawkette.




After further investigation of the wayside;









And also a trash can, it was kinda littered with trash around the spot, but still cool I think

Got into Franklin and had lunch at the Dairy Queen I love the grilled turkey sammichs they have, soooo yum.



Also needed to stop to re-charge my phone, I have no issues getting business done at a public place.



I really wish I had photos riding into Highlands NC, it's soooo pretty! The river gorge was over flowing and the waterfall into town was just magnificent! But I didn't stop



Instead of the typical self photo, I snapped my stylin and profilin shades.

I had finally made it to Asheville just as the sky was looking dark and menacing I was seriously worried that I would get caught in the rain. I had given my buddies a call and they were having a late lunch at Tupelo downtown. I didn't have a GPS, my iPhone doesn't even have a data plan on it at all. So I just winged it heading towards downtown on I-26 and kept going straight and found the place.

Now, these friends are IMAO/Indie guys that no nothing about motorcycles, except one does ride a scooter. But if something broke down on my bike, all I have is a leatherman for a tool to figure something out. I was sooo incredibly worried about my bike leaking gas again.
They did offer me a free place to stay as well as tagging along as the DD for them, while they had flight after flight of beers from the breweries.
I had the pleasure of being chauffeured on the way to Mt Pisgah brewery, borrowing some cool clear scooter glasses.


Sooo many taps






Every glass is one that Mt Pisgah makes and I don't know much about beer. I can appreciate fine breweries and tasting very tho. They had several yummy ones. I tend to like the porters or stouts.

Dude, so sad. Have you ridden out to Shiloh? If I remember correctly, it's near there, I rode through there while heading back home from the TN part of the TAT. They had an eagles nest close to the Visitor's Center, which was pretty cool!
I bet that would be somewhat scenic, just with no hills or mountains, not even bumps, but it should be green
