On a beautiful day like yesterday, no one grabbed the Tag? I'm playing single dad this week, otherwise I'd jump right on it. Oh, an don't bring my name into it of the cops stop in some weird place taking a picture of your bike!

You could do like I do when the son is home from college on weekends, I push the bike out and start it up down the road. Take off those metal sheds and it'd be an easy push

My bike is still loud enough that if I tried that, you can still hear me crank it up. It's not that loud, but it is a unique sound.

Sounds (pardon the pun) like you just need to push it further down the road before you crank it up.

Well Banjo, since it was your grab , it is inside of Kings Mountain National Military Park right off 85 near the border of SC/NC. http://www.nps.gov/kimo/

I felt like I was in The Blair Witch Project riding through the park at night! Also saw a cluster of deer also that passed about 50 feet in front of me. I will have to go back during the day and explore around off the bike sometime.

Good job, Justin!

So, how was Sandblast, banjo? Looks like the weather was great.

Not many pics as my camera is not too good at stopping the action... I opted to use the video mode, which isn't the best either but those are going up here in the Southeast forum in this Rallymoto thread CLICK HERE

The Raleigh/Fayetteville area riders thread has some pics in it too (Truckin_Thumper was racing), as well as more pics in this DOGs thread CLICK HERE

I was having a great time until.......3 of us had riding gear stolen from off our bikes while we were watching a stage. I lost my jacket as did another guy and another lost a $500 Arai XD helmet. That ended my day earlier than I had planned as I felt it best to head for home while it was still warm and sunny....and I didn't want to ride at night with out any protective armor.

And the darn jacket and helmet didn't even fit me!!


Sorry your stuff got jacked, that sort of stuff pisses me off to no end. Maybe they need an official photographer next year?
