Makes it look like you where flying a plane not riding.

Really makes a person wonder how accurate it would be in the woods if you had to hit the "I've fallen and can't get up button"

Nice pictures, those leaves make for a rough ride with all they hide.

Still riding 'blinded by the light' and bouncing around at random.
















Beautiful day for a ride though!!

I think it would be OK in that respect as long as you weren't under and overhang. The 'spots' generally hit where we've stopped for a few minutes...it has trouble connecting at speed, it seems.

Thanks and yeah...we got bounced around pretty good!

Looking for the tree where old Tom Dooley was hanged from.




Legend has it that he was hanged up there on the mountain where the three state lines meet.




























Much better with the sun at your back.

We descended off the mtn through the woods on a really rocky, rooty and rutted 'road' that was also covered in leaves.....moving pics eluded me.
















But we survived and made it back to civilization before dark!
















My trip meter logged 87.3 miles on the return....for a total just shy of 150 big old wide grinin' ear to ear smiles!

Thanks....it's always good to have a partner out in the woods, although many times I don't.

Same here...Having a ride partner is not only safer but allows one to ride in such a manner that you just can't get that silly grin off your face and you have help when picking up your bike is needed.

We had one of those epic days, good weather, good times, minmal issues.. Thanks




you'll neven know how many drops...

You might have to wait for 'em though as I may fall asleep before they get uploaded....
^^^^
This made me laugh out loud and scare some of my coworkers... Cause I do have an album of ADVTENN unassing that KLR on some of the same trails!!! Man I wish I lived closer to awesome riding areas like that!
