Feb. 10 - Adventure Bike Ride Report

It turned out to be a beautiful day for a ride up in the mountains. Advzebra and I rode north on Table Rock Rd, cut west across Rt 183 and then rode south on Old NC 105. Was a bit slippery in some spots where it was wet and muddy. Came close to losing the front end at one point while standing (got the front tire in a rut) and was forced to dab to save it. Guess if we were riding a trials course, Advzebra won the day as he rode both sections clean to my 1 dab. Finished the ride with burgers at Jake's back in Morganton.

Here are some photos from Wiseman's View facing west.

Some of us like to overthink things 'round here, Banjo.

Would be great to see ya man, hoping to make it out as well.

Gonna be a little chilly - high of 42. But what did you have in mind? I am free between 12 and 3. Maybe just a little cruise through some trails on the SC side?

I look forward to seeing those for sure. Are we doing the "meet at Tilted Kilt and then head to the show" thing? I need to pull my head out of all this work crap and read back a few posts, I guess!

Yeah. Too soggy. I'm out for tomorrow.

Now, let's get this Tilted-Kilt-Motorcycle-Show thing lined up... Looks like meeting at Tilted Kilt on S. Tryon around 11:30 AM on Saturday the 23rd should work. Spend 60 - 90 minutes there and then head off to the show.

Who's in? Let's get a fairly accurate count if we can. Post up!
