well I would IF my buddy's place were available in TN, and I didn't have to run to Greenville, SC for the unobtainable clutch cable ... and I felt up to a 10 1/2 hour round trip ride for your tag + the GA / NGA ones



not today

So nobody cares to ride here? It sure looks like a lot of folks have this one figured out.

Is that tag even in the mountains? Those look like little hills.

Or is that all GA has for the Appalachia's,little worn down nubs?

OIC, I just got it. Might have to commit a full day or two to that, and I don't want to put any more dang superslab miles on the distanzias.

I need to find some cheap wheels for the versys I can set up some road shoes for quick swaps.

I've used 411 down the TN side way too many times. Need to do something different. Down the NC side I see things like 129, 74, 64, and some other pretty roads. Those'll get ya near it. Of course the prettier the road the longer the day. Is that bad?

Hm. Clues not working or nobody near this to get it?

The picture was taken standing on the steps at the entrance to Ruby Falls near Chattanooga. It looks out over the city. Do you have to be old to have heard of the Chattanooga Choo Choo?

Coupla more days I'll have to get it myself and move it.
