Gone Up North

I will be in Canada and the Adirondacks for the next two weeks. I will be traveling with the frau in a car. There will be no posts until I return. I do have a couple of motorcycle trips planned soon upon my return. After mounting new tires on the GS I may go to the Outer Banks of North Carolina. That would be a week long trip. Shortly thereafter, the Rally Loop. The BMWMOA National Rally is in Johnson City, TN with the RoK Rally in Del Rio, TN the week before. From there I will ride to Caanan Valley, WV for the BMWRA National Rally. So, instead of reading this blog... get out and ride!!

See you in two weeks!!

A Weekend in Western North Carolina

The photo above was taken Sunday morning on my ride home. I shot it from the highest point on the Blue Ridge Parkway. Sometimes I forget how lucky I am to live in this area and ride motorcycles. Some folks spend their whole vacations just getting here to ride. I spent the weekend at Kickstand Lodge in Stecoah, NC. There was good food and good friends, some old and some new. Below are two shots I took along Wayah Road. The first is the Nantahala River as it leaves the Nantahala Lake. The second is Wayah Road. This road was made for motorcycles!

This weekend I will be picking up the frau from the airport, so no riding this weekend. Soon I will be headed to Canada for a few weeks, but in a car. Keep checking back. This time of year you never know what will happen!!
