I can only hang around for breakfast, but I will be there.

Looking forward to seeing everyone - Bojangles at exit 14 on 85... Numa and I should be there by 8:30 or so.

That was some great riding yesterday! Thanks for showing some great roads and waiting at the next turn. The only downside was the interstate on the way home.....
Hope to ride with everyone again soon.

Yep, it was a great ride. I did 416 miles and loved every minute of it. Thanks again everyone, I had a good time in those hills.

Thanks

Thanks for having me along on the ride yesterday. I didn't even pull my camera out after ya'll stopped to pick me up. I think this is evidence everyone was there.

Hey! Did I meet y'all on East Fork Rd yesterday?!?

I was on 'the pig' heading home from the XS11 rally at Iron Horse and met eerily strange mix of bikes as pictured above!

Do you remember meeting big old silver windjammer fairing?

Mine ended at 463 miles. Whether it's 25 year old foam or 45 year old butt it made me decide I need a new seat.

at that mileage it was probably a little of both! That is a long day in the saddle no matter what you are riding.

We did run E. Fork, 276 to 178, I think we met a motorcycle just after our left turn ( east bound, stop & right).

Was that you?

That barn looks like one on Neddie Mtn Rd, but maybe too fresh a coat of paint, barn & road both. Where is it?

Yep..that was probably me. I distincly remember the green tiger and ta...along with the street bikes. I had run down 215 and was taking a scenic route over to 276.

That barn is on Gunter Gap very near the Iron Horse. I did ride Neddie Mtn from 281 to Charlies creek though.

Few quick iPhone pics of the Sunday ride.






Had to get a taxi for Flasher 'cus his knee was hurting...


Here's an attempt at a video, my first one on the motorcycle. Probably a little long at 15 minutes, but if anyone wants to know what we were up to it was all kinda like this. VW bus and half a squirrel too make an appearance too..



I also had to figure out how to embed video... I have another one I'll get up from the back of the bike, mostly just watching augiedog riding along.

Three Square Meals Ride

The ride started with breakfast at Bojangle's in Bessemer City, NC, took a lunch break at Shoney's in Waynesville, NC and featured dinner at the Bantam Chef in Chesnee, SC. In between the eating was some wonderful riding on great roads west of Brevard.

(Dropped and broke my great little Fuji pocket camera a few weeks ago, so I shot these stills with my GoPro Hero3.)

Mountain View



Taking a break from the action.



Joe's sweet TransAlp.



Wolf Creek Lake



Another break.



Thank you Loren and Augie for guiding us across some fine tarmac!

Numa
