Adventure Bike Back Road Ride Around Sylva & Cherokee On 07/09/11

A few of us are gonna meet in the Roses Store parking lot in Sylva, NC tomorrow at 10:00 AM. We'll probably ride around Dick's Creek, Washington Creek, Jenkins Creek, Hyatts Creek and up near the parkway and Mile High Campground. There will be a lot of great gravel road twisties, several water crossings and a few rougher spurs/loops for those on true dual sports. I'll be on the V-Stom and Mgarrett will be on his GSA so the gravel will be our primary domain. Lots of fun to be had and everyone is welcome...............Mark (h-828/389-3982 c-828/361-5080).

Wish I could've made it. The Sunday ride would've been perfect.
Watch for the red Ford ranger near the end of the pavement on Upper Hightower. Old fellar don't look before pulling out in the road. He' almost got me multiple times.
