That's just amazing. I am surprised no ADV rider from North Carolina has planned a vacation in those beautiful locations. I sure am going to

7 or 8 yrs ago a group of ST Owners would hold an annual rally there known as the Blue Ridge Gathering... had done so for 10+ years......35 motorcyles camping there...we had to change venues because of issues with the owner in the last 2 years of going there...Our current venue is Moonshine Creek Campground in Balsam NC...2 mins. from the BRP...still camping there was really nice.

I don't think that severe thunderstorm even cleaned the bike one bit.

Funny, I took that pic on Saturday while looking for a different tag

Located south of Hwy 276 on the Blue Ridge Parkway. Windy and cold up there early this afternoon. Got a little wet on the way home.

Hey Jeco, what kind of light bars are sitting down there? I'm flirting with the RI 6" E-series combo.


Finally figured out TapaTalk on the iPhone!

They are 6" 18 watt units from ebay about 15.00 each, shipped. The Tech Mounts I used to mount them cost more than the lights. I have two 10 watt round lights tucked under the headlight that seem to do about the same job. They are also from ebay and were about 50.00 shipped for the pair. These LED lights, along with the Euro Headlight that runs high and low beams together might help get me noticed during the day and do a fairly good job at night.

Is anyone going for this today? I just took a grab photo but I'll sit on it for a couple of hours, just in case. I know where I'd wanted to move it but I'd like to save that one until it's a little warmer up here and the vacations are hitting full-force.

Wonder what I have in file drops...

Okay, looks like I'll claim it and move it a LITTLE further east.

Grab - sawmill on Watauga River Road in Sugar Grove/Cove Creek.



Beautiful part of the river, there was a couple down fishing at the bottom of the dam. Lots of people put in there and float down to Trashcan Falls.

New tag coming...after I go get a picture of it

Lots of movement in all the tag games over the last few weeks even with all the rain.
Good Grab!!!

Sorry for the delay guys, I took it and thought I'd have signal somewhere along the ride...posting this from Alpine Lodge in Alpena, WV.

The new tag is just across from the now-for-sale Todd General Store:
