My Uly has taken six or 7 "naps", always stationary. driveway, garage etc.
I did slam her to the ground, trying to beat a flock of turtles while sitting on a patch of ice.

Her naps have cost me a couple of windshields and a couple of mirrors.
I'm calling it good.

Wish I was there instead of here but at least I rode this morning, before the front came in.

I like their fire rings. Nice breeze and plenty of opening under the ring there. Wish I could be there. I have thought of it a few times this week.

Ahhh; You're not missing much. A bunch of enthusiasts for an extinct motorcycle manufacturer hanging out by a fire in the mountains, drinking unusual beverages and talking about all kinds of bizarre sh*t; after riding motorcycles over roads that weren't even built straight. Not only that, but we even have to pay for the fire wood we use! We even have to ride over a gap in the mountains to get lunch and all the restaurant offers is smoke flavored chunks of meat with the bones still in them.

If it's any consolation, you guys are missed. I think we're going to do this again in the Fall, if you really feel like you need to put up with such punishment.

Went to the show at Smoky Mountain HD, had a good time... both Scott and Monet did great, sounded great! They even had a lap steel player, one of my fave instruments. Scott's guitar work is better than ever.

I gotta get over being bellybutton/butthurt about missing TWoS this weekend. I got tix to Mummenschanz this evening, that'll be a killer show.

What Crusty said!


Thanks Brad. As always great hospitality from you and your sweetie. Excellent food. Thank you again.

My apologies to Graham. I'm sorry to have to guide you around this place. I could not find a straight road going anywhere that wasn't littered with distracting beautiful mountain scenery. Then the sad choices of food available, I know it is hard on the body to injest that much.

The weather was perfect Friday for our ride to TWOs. Scott, Graham, and I got to do the Foothills Parkway, the Dragon, and the Cherohala Skyway. Then on to TWOs. A great day. Sorry you had to miss it Brad.

The boys did what they do. Since I had ridden very little the past few years I had slowed down a lot. These guys helped me pull my head out of my ass. Got me to ride to feel alive, not just for transportation. Same magic they always work on me. I'm sure thankful for that!

A full lap around here does wonders for the soul! 60, 180, Blood mountain, Richard Russel, Wolf Pen Gap were perfect. The first time I can recall I got to do it with no rain, no fog, not freezing, no construction, no debris on the roads. Perfection in that respect.

This group is as fun as ever. BadWeB ers rock!

Looks like big wet ride home tomorrow. No problem for Bad weather Bikers!

Everyone probably knows, but running north from Suches there's a fair amount of rain... ride safe, rubber side down, and post up once you're home safe and out of the rain gear, friends!

Vern, it was certainly our pleasure to have you guys over. We LOVE to cook, and Peruvian Chicken is a fave of mine, especially with them little Cornish hens on the rotisserie. Marcia has pulled the meat off the last half bird this morning for a bit of chicken salad, making stock with the bones/skin/giblets as I type this.


One thing I've noticed after my surgery, particularly after that dinner, is that black beans turn me into an air compressor. I've never lit my farts before, but had I put on roller skates and eaten a bowl of beans, I probably could have kept up with you guys heading out of town! Wow.


Don't forget, PICS OR IT DIDN'T HAPPEN!!!! ; )

I'm taking a break to let some of the water drain out of my gear and to warm up. It's a tough ride.

Don't light them! A "friend" of mine lit one and complained of getting burned under their ___.

Yeppers- not just rain, but COLD. Make all the stops as needed... it's raining pretty hard now in Mur-vil TN.

Everyone post up as you get home.

Rain has been so bad that I81 came to a crawl. I stopped and have spent the last hour at a Fatz to fill up and hope things clear up. Time to get back on the road.

I'm home. It was an extremely tough ride. Froggy, I know just how bad it is; at times, I couldn't see 100 yards in front of me. I'm going to have a small hot meal, then go to bed. I'm completely whipped.

Vern's in.

Everyone rest up, get warm and well fed, SLEEP, holler tomorrow.

My $.02 from Vernicle was that this was, as always, an epic time. SO glad that he FINALLY made it down- I know of no one else that deserved the weekend more.

Just now, at 857pm, Graham grabbed a hotel room. Apparently on I85 in NC.

G'nite all!

I left TWOs around noon hoping to miss some of the storm. Rode 60 to Gixer corner before feeling how cold the days rain was to be.

I rode North on 68 to Tellico. In all of that distance I passed through areas where four trees had fallen across at least one lane of the roadway. All had been cut back just before I got there.

I stopped about five miles short of Tellico at a convenience store to get dried and warmed for a bit. Spent about an hour getting past having the chills. So glad I had my heated gear. A man came it telling us of a barn that had been blown down near by.

At that point I was thinking a smarter guy would get a room. But I pushed on home. Now that I'm here I'm glad I did. Plenty tired.

After 20 and a half hours I'm home, the weather really put a wrench in my voyage this time. Now to sleep.

I was pretty concerned; I'm glad you made it. That rain really sucked.
