That sounds like a good idea Jeff.

Probably better than my FB idea.

Same thing they're always looking for...MONEY!

Did 350 miles on the Tiger yesterday, tho a lot of it on FS roads between Murphy, NC, Tellico Plains and Robbinsville. Didn't see much traffic or LEO's, they must have all been keeping mom happy!

I did more backtracking yesterday...Tatham Gap road closed, River Road closed just South of the NC/TN line. If I'd been on the DRZ or the WR, I'd probably have been able to get through the construction area, but was not about to try and take the Tiger through there with just DS tires on it and by myself.

Nope, but I did see 2 State Troopers on 400 late afternoon pull over 4 to 6 sport bikes that went by me like I was standing still, and I had the cruise set at 80....

Hey Mike...I gotta get over and ride NW Ga and NE AL, sometime, never have spent much time over in those parts! Think I'll need to make it an overnight trip, too.

Any thoughts on heading out West late this Summer? I'm game for another road trip to CO or such.
