HB has run 12K out of a plugged tire....
I use Ride-On..... Knock on wood in 185+K never had a flat Edit ...


Edit:
He had put 3 plugs in that tire before it held for that long....We had been 2000 miles from home..
Had to plug it.. But once it held .. All was good... and it was a rear tire...
Sometimes they just don't seat well... And where ya need the plug. Placement and location means a lot....

2 yrs later another trip, this one in AL.. once again flat tire on one of the other Valks...
That tire just never liked the plug..When got home and he had a boot put in it...

Plugs are funny....I've had them last the life of a tire as well.

....but today I had to plug that same hole two more times!!




....looks like smuggy is having some trouble again today....

About 2/3s of today's gallery is online now...and just maybe the rest will finish before the whole thing crashes!

So I'll get what I can in here while I can.


Cotton









Headed towards South Mtn


















Sunny and cool...a beautiful Fall day.

Well it only took 3 hours to do thirtysome pics (just like being at Lady D's )


The South doesn't have the abundance of vibrant color fall color like New England does but.....we have our 'splashes' here and there.

















When the others peeled off towards home via I-85 I waved them a goodbye and puttered along the back roads to the house.....















































This little beauty was listed For Sale ..it includes 79 acres...





That's all....but....I have tomorrow off with nothing to do

Yup....Kings Mtn State Park (which adjoins Kings Mtn National Park) That cabin is actually the restrooms at the entrance to the living history farm. There's lots of old shanties and sheds in there, you'd like it!

Funny thing about those parks is that everything is free on the National side and it's free to drive around on the State side but you have to pay a fee to park and walk around....

After last nights frost I may just ponie up today and tour the farm if the colors look better there this afternoon. Still sipping coffee and waiting for the sunshine to do it's thing yet.

Good luck with that Lady D...I hope you get something that works out for you!


Today was mileage lite but picture heavy...I'll try to do my best not to post too many of 'em 'cause quite frankly....a lot them look just alike anyway!


My wife had some time to ride mid-day today before going to work this evening so I rolled out the XR250 for her so we could hit a few gravel roads too.


















This was the 3rd time in 3 days that I'd ridden up Apple Rd. and with the cold nights we've had there seems to have been a little more color each day....it'll prolly all be gone in a week or two....















































Then we looped around the West end of the park on single lane pavement. Check out the old gindstones in this wall.











It was real pretty around that end but, I'm afraid my pics don't do it it's due justice.






































































I turned the lead back over to her as we rode some fresh marbles back up into the park....

Still plenty of green in this shot...I can't remember what kind of trees around here have pretty colors and which ones just turn brown.











A quick ride through the parking lot to do some u-turn practice.





















Another shot for 257...just to compare colors.











Yes, she owns better helmets and boots and has heard all the ATGATT sermons.....

















Here's another one that's just for you 257bob!!









This is the road that little shanty sits on....

WooooHoooo!!

since you're at litespeed...how about some more pics.



She didn't have all afternoon to ride so....here's a little color as we passed through town.









...and a little more as we turned into our little country neighborhood.









...and this is hanging right above my old pickup truck.









After I put her bike away I rode back over to the park and ponied up my $2 just for 257bob...see the things I do for you?






8 bazillion pics of the living history farm and swimming hole will be coming up next.
