I have been up there before. It is too bad all the roads dead end at hunting camps. Also watch out for gravel in the switchbacks.

Bump.

Gee whiz, it's only about an hour's ride from pretty much anywhere in northeast Alabama from Fort Payne to Huntsville....

And a pretty nice ride at that.

Granted. You, sir, are excused. But, if you feel extraordinarily ambitious....

What I meant to say was I am going to dick around all day and not do a whole lot of anything and then my girlfriend will come over and remind me that I was supposed to go get this tag so off we go now.... yep.

Nice tag and nice set of bikes. If the tigger was the better shade of Orange I would say you had been in my garage.

The ride to that tag was awesome. 180 degree switchbacks up a steep hill. Fun ride if you're in the area. My girlfriend has been riding since memorial day and has tackled off road, steep hills, interstate, loaded camping and the like. Pretty soon she will be a better rider than me.


New Tag... Picked out by the girlfriend, Madison County Lake. Let me know if it has been done before.



Maybe she will finally comment on the thread.
