New tag, heavy street bikes beware!

WARNING! The last few miles up to the new tag are pretty rough. Part of the road might have been paved circa 1950 or so. The last bit is gravel and washed out. I'm middle aged, overweight and out of shape and I made it on a VFR750 so it is doable.

It's easy to miss it on the way up, but the road dead ends so there is only one way in and out. You can't miss it on the way down.

Your only hint for now: It's SW of the previous tag approximately 17 miles as the crow flies. If no-one has it by tomorrow afternoon I'll post a better hint.

Breeze, you of all people should be able to find it... Here's your hint: Turn left here.

Happy coincidence on the picture, I took a pic of the same sign to use as my hint if needed and then I stumbled across yours in the other thread.

First, there is a private property sign just before you get to the tag, I almost turned around.
Short Mountain fire tower.

Thank you.

Mental note....when Yamarocket says the pavement is sketchy, he really means WHAT PAVEMENT! That was fun in the rain for sure. Kentucky, sorry about the Bruce!

New tag, I had a fun day, left the house with a full tank and fueled the bike twice....got home with about 80 miles on the last tank......whomever grabs this one can tour the museum and have the best burger in middle Tennessee (according to news 2)


Close up so you can read the sign

it's nice to know I'm not totally useless, I can still be a bad example.

that DL1K is my favorite of all the bikes I have had. I miss her.

But I think this DL650 is going to be right up there too. I had a great time playing chase with JNeiman today on some pretty questionable "roads".

That doesn't look like the soda pop junction in Lynnville... Although I might go there for the train museum.

LYNNVILLE, Tenn. - News 2 viewers have spoken and sent our crew to Giles County to check out the winner of Middle Tennessee's Best Burger.
