  • Sunday ride with friends

    Today was a day that I got to log 232 miles of some of the most insane curves I have rode a bike on. It was crazy fun and got to share it with my wife and Beer30 and Judoman. We met in Crossville Tn and rode to Alvin C York's place in Pall Mall Tn. If you find your self in the area it is well worth the time to stop and see.

    The wife and I have been there a few times and enjoy Andrew York's company when we visit he is a hoot. he is the park ranger that is taking care of the house, which is the one that he grew up in. Anyway the wife and I took Beer30 and Judoman to see the house, grist mill and grave site. Then we back tracked to Jamestown and ate lunch. Then we rode Hwy 85 for over an hour, and let me tell you that road is curvy.... I will be sore tomorrow and I have baboon ass right now from moving from side to side on the seat with a sweaty ass. Wife has already hit the rack as she is beat and I am not far behind.
    It was a great day to spend on the road with friends, the only thing that was missing was Judoman's wife had prior plans and was not able to make the trip. And BullHurley and wife were also not able to make it, but they were riding to the Smoky Mountain area on a mini vacation so they get a pass.

    Judoman was duty cameraman on this one, so maybe he will post up some pics.

    Sounds like a good day.
    The hardest part about a Zombie Apocalypse, will be pretending I'm not excited!

              Great area. I haven't had the pleasure of riding there yet but that's where ALL my family is from, Jamestown, Alardt (sp) and Armithwaite (sp). Still have a lot of family in that area.

              I listen to the voices in my wives head that tell her to tell me what to do.

                Yep the roads are pretty well maintained compared to some places I have rode, you can ride in any direction for fantastic views of the mountains and country side.

                  Thanks Dave, that was a great ride. 85 had more curves than Dolly Parton. After getting soaked twice, not only did I end up with baboon ass but diaper rash too. But I am ready to do it again anytime.

                      Sounds like a plan to me. Rain is no longer an issue! As long as there are no gale force winds or large hail in there. Wouldn't want to ding up my tins.

                        I rode in a bad storm once, and I will never... ever do that chit again. I will pull off and camp out in the median like a squatter before I drive through what Jerry and I hit coming home from Huntsville that time.
