Thanks for joining in on the ride today Mike. That was great fun. Lucky you on the second bear sighting.


Is this what happens when youthful exuberance outweighs available tire traction?

The pigs are heavier and thus apply more downward pressure on the tires for better cornering. ...and I've got some ocean front property for sale in Tennessee.

Looks like the group we met coming through Big Frog yesterday. Caught y,all on the GoPro. Glad we didn't meet in a blind curve....seemed to be a lot of forward momentum in that group.

Monte and Twisty having a lot of forward momentum? Not those guys. Respecters of traffic laws at all times. It was probably somebody else.

Universal joint occupies the old gas station right next to the Hamilton co courthouse, I'm looking out the window at Jefferson's (the old Brass Register)

Sorry T-Bills, you need to get on the SMS group, it may be a bit faster or more annoying


I have requests for a Christmas Party for the ADV crowd!

Here's the options;

A. Campout/Bonfire on the TN in Mullins Cove (about 45 min from downtown) Good place to ride to

B. House Party/sacrificial burnings at Tim's (DriftDragon) place on Mobry Mtn.

C. Have a rowdy party at a local pub and get banned from there the rest of the year.



What say ye??
