Soon we are at the Lodge at the top of Mount magazine






The view was exceptional!!




One of the "cabins"


We soon started down the otherside of the mountain and well, i was a bit busy keeping the rubber side up and the others in site, so I didn't get any pics!!!

Soon, the roads started getting flatter, the turns not so sharp, and the temps rising...






This appeared to be the entrance to a residence?


Cave Springs?


Hot Springs




I think this was close to where I stopped taking pics... The rest of the ride was mostly flat, hot, DELTA riding... But as Trailblazer990 says "Any road can be fun if you drive it fast enough!"

On, to my next adventure...

Next Trip... Last minute trip to the Smokies!

So after being home 2 days from the recent Ozark trip, I get my clothes washed up and get invited to tag along on a strip to the Smokies!

Rev Jeffrides has some new guy that just got a bike a while back and he is teaching him to ride and wanted to take him to the Smokies and invited me to join them! How could I say no?

So Wednesday morning, Jeffrides shows up with his KLR in the bed of his truck, hooks up to my trailer, and we load my Tiger up and head for the new guys house... He had bought a Yamahopper Cruiser, but Jeff and I had a goal for the trip... To convince John aka "Battman" that he should have gotten a dualsport!

We get Battman loaded up and head northeast... First stop, is Trussville, AL for lunch...


We then drive on and stop in Fort Payne, AL. I had forgotten a couple of things so we pulled in to the "Walmarts". Battman and I went inside while Jeff talked to a friend on the phone who was in the area. I saw this hideous thing in the parking lot hooked behind an RV:


This was one of the weirdest Walmarts I had ever been inside... It was like the People of Walmart website had everyone shopping at once!!

Jeff talked to his friends who were hauling a calssic car to Chattanooga for the Coker Tire challenge . great race event. They stopped in Fort Payne, too...


After checking out the Nomad, we drove on!!

We arrive in Stecoah, NC at the Kickstand Lodge kind of late that night. We set up camp and Uncle Jimmy fixes us a little supper. The next morning we get to see what the place looks like...

Camp Snore-A-Way:


and here is Battman and his motorbike:


So we get moving around and load up and head down Hwy 28








Jeffrides and leads and follows...










Fontana Dam:












Where to next?

What better way to get a relatively new rider up to speed, than to send him to Deal's Gap!?!?


Battman and Backwoods: The new Dynamic Duo


Me and Jeffrides:


Checking out the other bikes in the lot


Off we go to fight the dragon!


Video of me tailing Battman through the dragon coming soon...

One of Jeff's favorite road signs

We took turns leading and when I was out ahead on the BRP, I top a hill and see a car stopped in the road and start backing down and see this...


I get stopped and the two behind be pull up...


The bull had felt hanging off his antlers and was real jumpy / frisky acting. He was jumping around and we didn't know which way he was going. I was afraid he was going to charge me as I went by..


But we all made it past
