2,500 Miles on a Z1000

Got back last night from my trip out to the Smoky Mounains. Cant even begin to describe how awesome this trip was. Went with 2 of my really good friends and had a blast. We rode deals gap, the 209 rattler, blue ridge pkwy and many many other incredible roads. Thought i would share some pictures from the trip with you guys.

Only bike problem of the whole trip happened the first night, my kick stand some how lost a bolt out of it and the bike almost went over when I went to get off of it at dinner. Got the stand fixed the following morning and everything was good to go!

Bike leaned up against a post overnight till I got the stand fixed

Picture taken somewhere in Kentucky on the way down

This was from Cades Cove it was an 11 mile single lane loop road

Views from the Cades Cove road

View from Gatlinburg TN

I rode the Dragon, don't see what all the fuss is about!

Ok real pics from the Dragon, still need to purchase some from Killboy

I did not contribute to the tree of shame luckily

Took this on the way to ride the 209 Rattler

Found this cool old building somewhere off of the beaten path in Indiana

View from Blue Ridge Pkwy

Woke up to rain on the second to last day, we waited around had breakfast and by noon it cleared up! Did not have to ride in the rain once this whole trip!

Headed back home I believe this was around Lexington KY

That is all the pictures for now but I have a bunch of pictures to still go through. Hope you enjoyed it!

Phenomenal! All the way around. I'm jealous.
Heading out on a ride with no destination in mind.

A year later....

Nice pictures!

I do miss the riding in eastern TN, western NC, and northern GA.
