started out pretty cold this morning, so instead of having a food pic during the ride I made some Eggs Bacondict while waiting for the temps to into the upper 40th



Windy Gap

















Unanka Mt. Road







if you look close, you'll see the road I came down and up

Selfie - damn this is a wobbly bridge...





100 miles - almost no traffic and no cops: Yancey and Mitchell County (plus a tiny bit of TN)

That's a pretty bridge. I think I passed it once when I was sort'a lost. Is it on the Toe river heading towards Burnsville?


I've got a couple of "big-ass" cables, each about 150' long. Maybe we could build a swinging motorcycle crossing bridge somewhere, perhaps near the RDV rally or Nottarally. We'll need a lot of U-bolts and a lot of beer....

Yup, the bridge is on 197 over the Toe; there are a bunch more on Hunting Dale and 19W, but I think these are all private.

And go for it with building a bridge... I'll have the camera ready

That looks like a sure-fire money maker. $5 each to cross, and $5 each to watch! (We could charge even more if we could find a river with a few gators in it!)

We'd have beer-money for life!

Looks like you had a nice day.
Great pictures and nice color/composition.


It's been crap here ever since I got back.
Still hoping for that nice fall ride.

I know, but I feel the need to get dirty again.... but the tires (trail attack's) are so much fun on the road - and last forever - so I gotta stick to easy stuff on this bike.

Guess it's time to get the DRZ running again... maybe I get lucky and I'll be one of the first customers once the guys get the shop open (they are fixing it up right now).



And I guess I'll have to make Jambalaya for the opening... details to follow



and yes - the frame is from my "project in boxes" I own for over 20 years

I don't know what this is, I'm out of the loop again.

Looks cool as hell.

That's a really nice shop, I'm a little envious. There were two close together that were vacant. I was hoping this was the one the guys were getting. Looks like another stove to keep wood cut for too. I wish Hunter all the good fortune in the world in this venture.
