Everything she needed was concentrate. All she did was add water when we arrived at the KOA.

I was wondering the same thing. All the guys had way more goods than WW.

You funny girl. Make me laugh long time. The real truth is I was as full as a tick and could eat no more. Trust me, riding gear can cover a multitude of sins.

I was only along for one night and two days, you don't need much for that.

Hope you said Hi to the Yellow Wolf while you were there.

Personally, I changed the wheel bearings in my Concours every third tire change as a matter of course, but then I am anal.

Looks like you had good weather. Were the leaves turning yet?

Deals gap is ok, but the Cheohala (sp?) is better. Both are being watched more by LEO since it has gotten so much internet fame, which has almost ruined it. There are some other nice roads around Fontana in the area as well, and some more good ones around Gatlinburg area.

Reminds me, I need to order some new wheel bearings for the FJR, as it will be due soon.

He was pulling out as we got pulled in the parking lot at the store.

The weather was perfect. They were starting to turn. The reds were brilliant.

I agree but we had a rider that had never ridden the Gap. I think they rode Cherohola on Saturday. There is a plethora of good roads in the area.

When are going to head east so we can ride? I know right after I ride to TX.

blackbirdzach, with all the hype around this ride, how did you miss it? Heck :(
I don't know. :( I was even up in the North GA mountains the last part of Saturday and ALL of Sunday. I was having so much fun riding around 129/60/180 and some of the forrest service roads that I never even made it up to Tellico.

This ride backed all the hype up. It was all that and a bag of chips.
