I do have a new Tiger 800 on order...that should increase my range sufficiently.
50-60hrs/week, I spent 3 weeks in TX, I'm so far behind at home I'll never catch up.

That's my excuse for not riding much, and when I do its been closer to home than the Tags been.

Didn't Lee get the tiger? I know he seemed real happy with it.

Well, I guess it's good to have lots of work...as I recall.

Yes, Lee got the Tiger1050 from Myers. I haven't touched base with him in a few days now. Knowing him, he's going over it with a fine tooth comb. I had one for a time and thought it was a very worthy street bike...not so much in the gravel. Lee, is over the gravels I'm sure.

Now, back to local programming.

Games people play. The seriousness of it all...... Again let's quit this and get together for some real fun doing some riding over serious terrain at some serious speeds. That's what it's all about!

I called the FS office today and was informed that most gates will be opened on the 20th. However, they said the gate to the tower in my tag pic is now closed permanently.
So, that tag is no good and I'll have to re-tag. Sorry for the confusion.


New Tag

Closed and gated, stay outside like I did.

No Gators......The creek crossing to wolf falls.

You just have to hit the creek fast enough!

But it's raining...... I'm not supposed to get wet. Probably couldn't find my way back home being mindless and all.
Maybe I'll venture out in the morning with the Gerbings on high for the long trek. Stay close to the phone just in case.

Lets see i'll check my GPS maps. I believe that tag is 3.7 miles from jeco46. How are we going to get it moving if you'all keep putting it within walking distance.

Not supposed to get wet? Jesus. Wipe it down with some Butch's and it will be fine. Just remember to let one fly so clear out the gas tube and remove the corrosion.

Yeah I know it's close. I rode by jeco46's house on the way home.

Maybe later on I'll put one toward the Ky/Va border for ya, I've done it before.

Thank you! People are starting to think East TN is two counties and one forest.

Look up Buckeye Hollow Road in Laurel Bloomery, TN. Next tag I get might wind up there. Most northeasterly road in TN.
