This rides coming again.....soon.

That road has some great scenery and the curves aren't bad either.

Pics or it didn't happen......

We're ok, just swamped

Trying to catch a break and actually ride a bike.
XR is coming along, but I don't want to do anything fancy until after the Beaver

My dad took ownership of his 2011 Conti 14 and that thing is nice. Can't believe they put that much power in a sport tourer.

No pics. I have misplaced my lanyard for my camera. Hopefully it's at the cabin, plus it was way too windy to be fiddling around with a camera yesterday, plus I didn't stop except once for fuel in Pikeville and dinner at one of my favorite spots in Chattanooga. Reminds me, I have a scenic back road way to Chattanooga from Dalton I want to show you so we don't have to slab it up 75 next time we go up that way.

My backway route from Rome to Cisco goes pretty close to that, a section of beaverdale/cohutta is about the biggest road, there are some twisties and whole bunch of turns, not much continuous road from west to east except hw 2, but I don't get on big expressways like that.

I'll probably be there. I know that the deadline to sign up is fast approaching, so I need to make a decision and get Rick some moolah.
