I took the camera, but I forgot the battery. Valve Crusher and Lucky will have to provide the artwork. VC was on his way to Linn Cove when he peeled off. Very nice ride, and Maple Sally was in prime shape. The south side of Brown was tacky and sweet. Thanks yall for coming out.

Well, since Gaston had some misfortune with his camera and wasn't lucky enough to get any pics...I'll share some of mine from Sunday...









It was a beautiful, clear day and you wouldn't believe the view from the top of this mountain! These 3 pics are nice but they don't even come close to doing it justice to the real 360 degree view...

You can see from above pics that Grandfather mountain wasn't the most colorful...

This is getting a little closer toward Prices Park and Cone Park...
Look at all the cars on the shoulder...

By the way, all these pictures are from the Blue ridge parkway...from 181 back towards 321 Blowing Road..

The full circle...
you can see much more color around Price PArk.

Nice sailboat or something out for a cruise back on the water...

After work quickie.








The things you see out in the woods when you don't have a gun.







Off to my right, I could see the leading edge of the system that's going to provide the water for this weekend's kayaking.

Hey guys, and ladies

There is a sweet XR250L for sale in the charlotte area, belonging to a ADV'er
http://www.advrider.com/forums/showt...38#post8200638
If you know someone wanting a 250 dual sport, these are great bikes for beginners to skilled pro's...

WickedThunder, I know you gots peeps coming in daily looking for a bike...how about pointing them to it?

It's a sweet deal, just saying
