Smokies anyone

Anybody in the Smoky Mountain area (TN,GA,NC) who is out for a ride in the next 10 to 12 Days.
Yes it was rainy today and will be cold the next two, but then we are back in the 50's.
I'm always around the Blue Ridge Parkway, the Copperhead and so.
But I will ride one Day to the Dragon, Wayah Rd and the Roads we took during the Takeover, or the ones we missed.
This is might the last time for a long time that I can ride in this beautiful area.
So anybody who wants to meet?

Wish I could join you, but off to Kalifornia on business for a week, then my annual trek to Daytona to see the season opening races (and Main Street mania)....

Weather should be great......but what do you mean? Are you going out of country on an extended trip?

I used to be fast....now I just dream about it.

Ed my wife wants us to move back to PA.
She never felt home here in the south.
Plus here in the Area rules a corrupt brotherhood of thieves, cheaters for which we are the rich Yankees and have to pay all the obscene bills.
We can't live like this.
Sure I love it here in the mountains, but I might come down in the future for another DGTO or a few Days riding.
I'm not gone yet and I kind of hope that I can get some more time here in July.
We will see.
Have a great Time Ed.

So where were You Southerners?
I saw quit a few bikes this weekend but guess what? No MV Agusta.
Yesterday I did the usual route and Yes it is still cold on top of the mountains.
Today I drove over the 28 to Franklin, took then Wayah and from there back over 28, 19 and BRP to home.
Nice memories of our tour back in October.
I miss You Guys!

I was on an aeroplane to Southern California, where it was cold and rainy when i arrived. Believe me, I wish I had been chasing you around the mountains instead.

Love to meet up with you sometime Haupti. Waynesville is a truck for me, especially tough riding the RR there. Why did I sell my trailer? I ride with a couple of groups that meet up around Morganton and Jonas Ridge and ride the parkway usually to Little Switzerland but that could be a little far for you. I'll let you know if anything is planned and you do the same.
