    we kept this ride kinda low key i just sent a text message to joey to go ride route 28 again well that was the plan so we went up through 197 by lake burton then to warwomen, then through the high lands stop in franklin NC to eat lunch then headed to 28 blasted through that road then we stop at the gas staition at the end of 28 talk with a nice guy with a 1988 FZR 400 (sweet bike) then joey said lets head to the dragon, ok i've never been so ok! rode out there there was a car club up there had fun but a little to packed for my taste, but side story i could'nt drag knee on the dragon so i pissed on it had to go bad!!! :eek: but had to head out quickly on the way out a ground hog met his fate with my front tire! got rained on pretty good coming back through franklin but great ride!!!

    LOL 28 was a blast especially when there were no cars and yeah the dragon was a bit crowded. I'll be checking killboy for our pictures!! BTW, you're doing really well with the bike, could you do me a favor and not embarass me so much ha ha ha!! ;)

    I got to say I'm impressed with how that black 5th gen for sale looks. That gives me some inspiration for the possible winter project!

    Hi guys,
    Glad you had a good ride. My b-day was Friday and I had my Parental units at my house all weekend so I couldn't escape to join you.
    Joey, Just so you know, I've got a Mich. Power on the front and a PR2 on the back and I need to scrub them in so I'll try to set up a ride in the next two weeks. So far, so good, turn in is a whole lot quicker but I havent' tested the tires yet too much.
    Gary

    he he, well the story is that tail of the dragon is notorious for having a heavy police prescence and that first run we went the speed limit the whole way (30-35 mph) After seeing no cops we then turned around and did some :vtr2: at least in 5 second bursts until getting blocked by yet another cage. Next time I go there it'll have to be a weekday there were just too many cars to really enjoy it. :thumbsup:

    Yeah my bike was running hot too it was in the 220-230 degree range and I was struggling to keep the RPMs as low as I could in order to prevent overheating.

    Anyway here are pics from killboy.com (Note you can click on the next arrow to go to next picture):

    LOL Did you just happen to set up the date to meet chicks? You're married you know!! But on the other hand, I'm single so I'm gonna practice some pick-up lines, "Yes, that is my pipe and I'm happy to see you" or "What's a nice girl like you doing in a curve like this?"


    Picture time again... I found yet another site that hosts pictures from that day and I found more of me and Matt:
