DAMN MAN. I hate to hear that. I guess I am not alone to have been run into by the Tall Forest RATS. Glad you are ok.

Alright, settled in at home in front of a fire now. It was a cold ride back. Actually, it wasn't that cold, but I left when it was warm and didn't ride in winter gear. I had some Under Armor thermals in my backpack, and had to stop and put them on as the sun set.

So, I was riding on 55 East about half way between Newton Grove and Mt. Olive when I got hit. And trust me, I was the one that got hit. I was running WFO on the way there...well, as WFO as you can on a sidecar rig. I was in the middle of a sweeping right curve and was hanging off the bike. All I saw was a glimpse of brown on my left, then it felt like I got donkey punched. I got hit in the back of my left shoulder blade so hard it knocked me off the bike and halfway into the sidecar. I lost the bars for a quick second, which means I lost the throttle, which sent my sidecar around my bike and me into the oncoming traffic that didn't exist. I grabbed the throttle with my left hand, pulled myself back up, and recovered the rig before I left the asphalt. I saw the back end of a whitetail running into the woodline as I pulled myself up.

There was a few drops of blood on my bike. I think the deer had been shot, was running, and just didn't see me. I don't think it really attempted to jump over me, but with me hanging off the bike, it just barely made it over the bike, and used me to push off on to finish the leap. It shook me up a bit, but I was laughing about it a few minutes later.

All in all, it was a boring ride out there. I figured I would just grab the two photos and haul ass home before dark. I got the ABC tag, then missed my turn on the way to get the ENC tag. I was pissed, then I saw this!



So I went inside....and I found this!


Yep, it was a release party for their limited edition Silent Night Imperial Stout!


I sampled, and then bought my limit to take home. So really, today turned into a 300 mile beer run.

My guess is he was trying to bikejack you to get away from hunters. Never did trust those damn deer.

I was going for the old iron furnace, but couldnt access it due to a locked gate. Major bummer.

The tag is the eastside of the courthouse.....the "grab" is the westside of the courthouse. Not the same. .................................................. .................................................. .................................................. ..................

eggy tag

I thought one of Va. flatlanders would have jumped on it before now. Guess we are going to have to hatch a plan to bring him back off the coast. He was hoping for a ride with a honey on a ural or at least in a sidecar, hint-hint. Of course you know eggy, he is happy on anything as long as he is riding.

Well I'm out of this game until Sampson county. Not enough time for me to do the longer runs.

A.C.T.G. for me it is then.

Wow! This one is really starting to move. Does that mean I should be watching for Macon Co to get posted??? Hey Augie, LMK when you're heading over and maybe I could join you for a bit. Macon is in my back yard.

I will most likely come up off rt 11 on 276 to brevard and the parkway to 74 if its open. I have a buddy going with me and we may ride over toward robinsville in the afternoon. if you want to join us that would be great. let me know and we will set up a meeting spot.
