Did even better than that on my GSA running home from Utah running across I90 at 90 to 100. Passed a bunch of folks on the way. I stopped for gas and saw the tire. Still had to find a place for the night so back on the highway. As some folks recognized me they pulled alongside with a quizzical look. I cranked the throttle producing a shower of sparks and they understood.

The last tire I replaced on my RT was down to cords both sides of center but still had some rubber in the middle.

Thought about Roanoke Island, or even Jockey's Ridge... but I'm going to put it a bit closer.

Someone mentioned Hyco Lake recently.
Sign reads Hero's Hot Dogs. This pic was taken a few months back. Was by there this past weekend and I believe I noticed a new, more permanent sign. Good corn dogs. I'd skip the frog legs, but that's just me...

Shameless plug: Anyone looking for a dog? How about one that rides in a sidecar?

We're fostering a genuine hack pup right now, and we'd love to see her go to a ADV inmate.

I'm shocked this hasn't moved today. I was going to make a run for it, but MrsDonkeys wanted to jump today instead. So I'm spending the day at the drop zone.

I am surprised as well. Great ride up there if you avoid 57 and 86. Nice back roads but those aren't horrible either. Being at the Lake is a bit misleading as this is just up from the cross roads downtown.


Hope folks have had a great day of outings.. on the roads, in the woods, in/under the water and in the sky.
