Mark let me take one of his bikes. Good thing, the lebin-fiddy would not have been fun here.


BDXMPL, remember the ride up Cold Creek? Miles of this.




This gives me some real respect for the Dakar riders. It's fun on a flat well maintained road, can you imagine this pace or faster in the scrub off to the side?




On the Savannah River.





All done.


Fell three times. Once in the sand an twice in the mud. It was a great day!! Thanks again Mark.
The ride home was uneventful if a little painful. How long till spring?
I rode some of the same stuff in the summer . Bet it was more fun when cooler. And I think you'll agree , Mark kicks ass in the sand. I got a new helmet for that hot weather .

Yup, I try not to get below 1500' in the summer anymore. Told Mark I'd have to wait till winter to be able to stand it riding down there. It was a blast, high of 60. Perfect! An Mark kicks ass everywhere. At the tag rally he took that 650 (on 50/50s) through places I struggled with on the 450 (on knobs).

Thanks Cuttle, no magic in the shirt unfortunately.

The sun didn't stay up long enough.

Yup, that always amazes me, he just seems to make it flow. Not a talent I possess.
ET, it was good to finally get to ride with you over there!

Todd, we missed you, assuming you had to work? I still haven't seen Tigger in the flesh.

April Fool Ride

Got out again yesterday with strongmendieyoung, ktmMike, an advtenn. Jimmy, a firefighter from Mars Hill, an his son joined us. Hopefully some more of y'all will get to meet them at the Nottarally.

We left Hot Springs an went to Viking Mt.





On the way back down, almost got the tower.


I need to go back here on the little bike.

Jimmy said he was ringing that XT250 out keeping up on pavement but I was wishing for a smaller bike on the gravel.
No pics from that I was to busy holding on.

While we were at Viking Mt. we discussed going after the NC Tag. We had passed the end of the road it was on an I thought we had gone right by it. We got back on 208 an cut over to 212, the right road, an went up to the AT crossing at the Tenn. line. No luck. So back down an still didn't see it. We turned off 212 an wandered around in Revere an Sodom an ended up in Marshall for lunch.



Pickled egg an a pickled sausage. Your a braver man than me Mike!

After lunch we headed back to look for the tag. South, then north through Petersburg, back on 212 we finally found it. Maybe!

This is what we were looking for:










OK we'll try this. The tag shot.
