My 1st Ride Report

I have been wanting to do ALL of the BPW for a very very Long time.So the stars & planets alligned,and Got the OK from the wife,so me and My Little BIG brother decided to tag along for the first part of the trip,which was The AMA races in Atlanta in Sept.Here we are getting ready to head off.






Here are a few Pics of ome Eye candy lurking around the track



This was a Members Hack.






Me & My Little BIG Brother(I'm on the right)

My Brother heading back to Florida,he had ta go back to work

Saw a World Champion

Also saw Jeff Arron doing some stunts,here he was getting ready to jump some of the Red Bull Rookies

After leaving the track,i was gonna take my time and Smell the roses so to speak,so i stopped and did a little bit of hiking at this trail




More to Come

Heading out of Cherokee I saw this Neet old RR bridge

Then i stop to take a picture of the river

And see this from the otherside of said bridge

A closer Look.Looks like the road building crew used some local Wrecked cars for fill.I'd say late 50's early 60's ..pretty Cool

My 1st nite camping was @ Linville Falls Campground

My Humble abode

The field behind me

Beyond the field

Looking at my campsite from the river

Looking down river

Kept on hicking around and found this

Can you say dinner time


Than after dinner,took some time for some reading

Had a nice quite evening and got packed up early the next morning
and decided to do a little bit more hiking(Remember this is a trip where i am taking my time & seeing some of the sites)

This is the trail leading up to the first level lookout

On the way up to level 1


Here is Linville Falls from the 2nd lookout

Another

Looking the other way from previous Picture

Time for a much needed break

saw this little guy out for a morning stroll

1 last pic before heading back down

at the trailhead i see my trusty steed waiting patiently for my return

Next installment i head for a very foggy and rainy and cold Mount Mitchell

Great photos! I live a few minutes from the Linville Falls area and love hiking up there. Glad you were able to take time to stop and smell the roses as these old mountains are a friendly place to recharge your batteries.

Safe travels!

Thanks for your time and effort in compiling this, your first Ride Report.

I really enjoyed it and it looks like you had a great time.

The photos are good...I really enjoyed the 'Watch For Fallen Rocks' one .

Cheers.
