There are still a few pix from Dr. Doug's RKADV Ride I didn't get around to posting up yet. On Sunday we left Blowing Rock and did a giant lap around the entire perimeter of Grandfather Mountain. The conditions were perfect - clear, crisp air, and clean (well, mostly...), dry roads.

So we're climbing out of Valle Crucis on 194 towards Banner Elk. You've ridden this road before; you know how very, very sweet it is. Me 'n D are on point, Dr. Doug is doing what we do, which is mostly just taking it easy and taking it all in. It. Was. Sublime.

Whoosh! We meet a sport bike rider headin' the other way, on a bend, on the boil. First I see the bike, haulin' mail, nice line, nice lean, then I see the wave as I wave, but at the last moment the hand gets extra-HUGE, then I see a quick, nearly subliminal flash of Barricade Orange. Poof, gone!

I process the info. It's a Uly, at speed.

It's Carlost!!!!!!

There was a decent wide spot to our left, so I idled us over 'cause I knew Carlost would hang a UE and hunt us down like the dogs we are. He was on us in about eight seconds.

We had a great, impromptu visit there in the glorious mountains, then all of us had to roll, to continue to hit our marks for the day.

Great to see you yet again this weekend, amigo!


It was good to see you guys again too. Like I said, we passed several times over the weekend but that was the first time I pulled the bike out after getting there Friday. I need to spend more time in the area exploring. I also need to show you Tater Hill .

Looking forward.


Here are a few from today. The Parkway was clogged with peepers all weekend, so I headed elsewhere for my riding entertainment this afternoon. This'd be, more or less, in Cana, VA:

A junk yard for the big rigs, that's pretty cool.



And thanks for the props on the RR.

Fireman1000, Chatted with Ferris the other day. He's keeping his nose to the grindstone and staying off the grid somewhat. My bet is once he rolls the RK out into the sunshine and burns a few miles he'll be back. Fingers crossed.
