Eh?

I'm no engineer, but my first though when i saw the airport photo was "ooo windsheer". Could have saved someone a few bucks if they had asked me..

Appreciate the offer, wife is just warming up to dirt, she rides a F650GS, which is a good thing because i am on a GS now too, and did a lot of dirt on my Boxer Cup, and explore even more now!

I know most of the paved stuff, in fact showed some friends from Charlotte that ride up that way 20-30 times a year, Revere and Lonseome Mtn, Crabteree, Beaver Dam and few others, and they still cannot believe a Yankee found roads they did not know about. Also introduced them, and me, to PawPaw, Big pine, Bear creek and the little roads in that area this year.

Maybe we can meet for a cup of coffee, of bite to eat at the Hippie cafe in Marshall, or the diner in Hot Springs, we can take a picture of Pie and send it to Mario, (Mark) so he drools all over the mail the rest of the day

Hi Cleanerman

Nice to meet you the other day (I assume that was you in Hot Springs).

And yes, I should have posted a disclaimer about what types of bikes are best for the Grapevine road. I bet you gave the guys on the Harley's a workout

Yes, that was me in Hot Springs. I found your tractor.



Great views from the top of the mountain.
