Great RR! I gotta visit that one.

Caption: "Is that thing as loud and painful as it looks?" Yes ma'am!

8track, your caption is 3/4 right. It's not obnoxiously loud but it is pretty loud. The last 75 miles of the trip were incredibly painful. Working on the solution now. Alaska Brother has a backrest coming and we're looking for a bag to put in front to act as a backrest. It's in the back of my warehouse and whenever I walk past it, my back gets a painful twinge.

It was a load of fun however. Never thought it would have the power that it does.

Aldntn, I did take Hwy 30 on the way up. It's a great road and I had a lot of fun with the trike. Much more stable and manuverable than I thought it would be. Also a little stiffer than I thought (thus more stable).

We should do a ride up there together one day.

Bama Gringo, did I see that you were from Leeds? Isn't that the closest town to the Barber Motorsports Museum? If so, wow what a place you have next door. My brothers and I stayed at Cheahaw Resort and visited one day last fall. We had a great time.

You really should visit Fall Creek Falls. Looks like 3.5 hours by Interstate (who wants to ride on the Interstate). But a great trip plus you could overnight in the onsite hotel or in one of their cabins on the lake. They have a new online reservation system at http://www.tn.gov/environment/parks/reservations/.

Well worth the visit.

Another good rain last night

I would say that, given last night's heavy rain, that this weekend would be another great (if chilly) time to visit Fall Creek Falls.

It's certainly the subject and not the photography

Thanks KingLightningBolt. I'm not much of a photographer but when you have scenery as beautiful as this, it's pretty hard to mess it up.
