Nice ride, Cuttle. I've got to get up to the BRP someday. I've lived here most of my life and have never even seen it before other than the pics here on ADV.

Yeah, I would have been right in the middle of those puddles. I like to get wet and muddy.

dang girl, you need to hop over the mountain and go ride with me....

The BRP is nice... unless you get stuck for miles with a group behind some old guy that can't even do the speed-limit of 45 - then you just have to pass the group leader, cut between two cars (because of oncoming traffic), gesture and honk wildly at the guy, hope he doesn't have a heart-attack, ignore more double yellows (they are only a suggestion anyway - aren't they? ), and eventually you'll have a great time....

Will, Phil and Rob and Franklin Mt.



old hospital



19W





getting lost on the way to find a tag





that's it



oh, and I declare my tire as officially dead (time of death 11/12/11 16:09) - very odd riding twisties on a bald squared off knobbie

Nice photos. I need to remember to take my camera riding...

The BRP is definitely worth checking out if you've never been on it. But around here is seems like the fun riding is on all the great little roads that cross it.

Johnny Crash decided to do some garage cleaning..... and I am the lucky recipient of his "trash"



all sorted: 21", 18" - with a rim!!!, 17", and some trash

that should get me through the winter



once I get a second front rim I'll be tearing up the roads...


Thank you Dean!!!!

how many NC/TN boarder-crossings can you do in one afternoon?

Answer: about 5

Generally I don't mind being chased by 9 guys, however if you get caught and all you hear is "somebody went down - white SUV" it's pretty unsettling . Scary. Luckily all is good, he is ok and the bike just lost a bit of the beak. In his own words "I wasn't going that fast when I went over the cliff" . I assume some pics will follow

not many "road pics", sorry.

Here's the stop a few miles after the "incident" on 197



and another stop













yes we stopped a lot







the fresh gravel combined with the sun right in your eyes was nasty... and claimed another victim.

'nother stop







great day, everybody in one piece - what more can we ask for?

Now y'all are grazing in my pastures! I think I passed this convoy just before you started across the Beauty Spot. Glad you had a good time and everyone's OK.
