A little late but here's some pics...

Checked in Friday morning with the wifey...



Inmate IHF (wanker) sent me a track to Buzzard's Roost. I'd never been there before so I had to check it out. Nice twisty roads to get there...















Stopped at the crick for a photo op...







Buzzard's Roost... ADV baby!







What a view!





A nice place to stop along the route...





More nice scenery...







Back at casa "Z" for the weekend...









Saturday's weather wasn't as good but we decided to make our way to Roan Mtn to check it out...





It started to rain and we forgot our rain gear.
We stopped at a local wally world and picked some up. There was a Mexican restaurant around the corner and we were a little hungry...





Still raining...



We headed over towards Roan Mtn with a few stops along the way...





Got up to the top and we find this... Oh well, we'll have to check it out another time.



Nice scenery on our way back to camp...







We got back a little late so we decided to get a bite to eat at a local restaurant where it was nice and warm. We had a great time and met some good peeps. Thanks for putting the rally together Silke.

Three weeks in a hard cast, three in a walking cast. Ditched the walking cast last week...no running, jumping, or sexy high heels until the end of December. (Yeah, whatever!!!).

Ankle is still a little swollen but I can finally bend the big toe that I dislocated, and popped back in, so now I can pick up the dirty clothes from the floor!

Raised the front forks on the bike so now the suspension is back to stock. New chain and sprockets, new turn signals...the front faring needs a little band-aid but other than that she's good and I was riding the day the hard cast came off.
