Cuhutta's, Tellico, Dirtahala, Skyway back to Tellico. River beside River Rd was flowing good. Pizza at the bakery in Tellico. Couple of Tenere's doing dirt and pavement, all in all a great day.

So Andrew, you got someone that can run the shop for you Sat April 27th.
Looks like we are getting quite the turnout for my Dual Sport ride and with Flux, Crane, & Speedy all in on their 950's, you'll fit right in!

I have a Kymco Agilty 125 scooter that I have been thinking of selling. It will do about 60 mph... In a tuck. A grand and it is yours.

Managed a day off. Riding weekdays is great. There were a few riders out, but not many.

Scrubbing in a set of Metzelers. Left Dalton around 8:00. Great scenery overlooking Lake Ocoee.











Went around Benton Mtn Rd over to 30. 315 north from Reliance has fresh smooth asphalt to the Monroe Co.line, and was a blast as usual.

Stopped here for a break. Intersection of Bald River Rd and Lookout Tower Rd. Saw what I think were two Bald Eagles on the Tellico River just outside of town. Might have been Osprey, but they were flying up river about the speed I was riding, so I glanced at them several times. Pretty sure they were eagles.



Made a stop at Mini-Mike's. Been needing these.



Run back down 68 (yep, the tires are fine) and had a late lunch here. Pretty darned good.



Down the river on 64, followed by going by the 4-H camp and taking Branch Rd. making my way over to 411 at Conasauga and home.

Damn, I needed that.
