It's a fun road for sure; just a heads up: the west side of the road is gravel (Buncombe County) for about 4 miles, the east side is paved (Yancey County).

I'll have to hook up with you guys for a ride sometime. Looks like fun.


But right now the snow is coming down in Watauga county. It's time to fix & lube the 2 wheeled toys....and ride the 4 wheeler til some warm weather comes around again. That could be in 3 days, or could be 3 months. You just never know around here.

Glenn - I was riding near you this weekend...but was on a bit of a marathon solo ride. I'd love to ride with you again soon (when weather allows) - we seemed to be of relatively similiar riding speed and style.

fancyindigo,

Sounds great. I've been doing a lot of google maps/earth looking for "places you can't get to from here". There looks like a lot of dead ends roads that might connect if'in we used the rite words, with the rite accent.

Where did you go riding? I did a little solo ride the "last" time I went out....crunched a radiator at 0.5 mph. The front wheel slid out in a muddy spot, and I just stepped off instead of maybe getting hurt or muddy trying to save if. I was laughing as I picked her up....til I saw she was hurt, and I'd be walking. Ordered the new one this morning. Looks like I'll have plenty of time to get her fixed before riding weather returns.

Give me a shout whenever you're thinking of a ride.

I found an outta the way road that eventually had a sign that read "state maintenence ends" on my ride last Saturday. I explored it for a bit but it was covered in wet leaves and tight and I had my supermotos on...I will definitely go back with nobbys! I rode from Elkin to Blowing Rock, 221 past Grandfather, backroads to 80, up 80, down 226A, looped back around..rode up 80 again...parkwy to some unnamed gravel road to Jacksontown Rd, Humpback Mtn. Rd, to Altapass hwy, Spruce Pine...and then realized the sun was getting low in the sky...so I high tailed it back to Elkin via 105/Boone/421/268

I range over in the direction of you guys. A lot. You just described some of my usual roads. Maybe sometime we can arrange something. I was telling some of these folks about Valle Crucis the other day, maybe we can all rally somewhere in that area soon.

50*F in December.....

there's a certain road about 5 miles from here I never found the "entrance" to (stupid private property signs), so todays plan is to come from the north, and make a nice ride out of it

Paint Fork













Stucco?



19W





and a new road (for me) - to bad it's all Chip and (no) Seal





damn surface (roughed up asphalt with a layer of gravel)





How's that for an mailing address?









drive-by shots



and a backwards shot (all others are of my helmet too )
