Welp, I am currently 50 miles north of the tenn. Border heading down to deals gap. Looking forward to some good riding down here. Gopro is with me so video will be along whenever I can buy mud enough beer to edit it.

but you got a purdy mouf boy

have a great time Aeryck and yes I will work for beer - you know this man.. now if i could drink a beer, swim in your pool and edit video at the same time that would definite speed things up.. but i got my nickname "sparky" when i tried to multitask with electrical implements in the pool last time.. my legal counsel and safety rep (same person) advises me not to multitask in such a manner..

Did about 300 miles yesterday.. giant loop starting from robbinsville, through the smoky mtns natl park to gatlinburg, over to dandridge, then to maryville, then through the detour along 360 to the cherohalla skyway back into Robbinsville.

View from the top of the dam near Dandridge, TN.

Well, I've been having issues with the gopro so I really only have that one video. I have to call them when I get back and make a warranty claim.. if I had to speculate I would say the USB port is fucked, because it is very fickle to charge the battery and the PC no longer recognizes the camera when plugged in.

In other news, sportbikes and rocky cliffs don't mix well.

Leatherneck says the riding has been great and as of yesterday they had over 700 miles in.. The weather has been cooperating as well..

Good deal. I haven't been getting as much riding in since the injury and Chuck's unfortunate incident.

Weather's been spotty with rain, and to be perfectly honest I'm not very comfortable riding solo in an area I'm not familiar with that has little to no cell signal coverage. But, this trip won't dissuade me from future trips down. I'll just remember to avoid dogs.
