    Default TwoWheelFix.com 2KX Rally [180 pics server crash]

    Every year we do a rally off the website. This is about the 2010.
    So my buddy Ebbs from Mississippi decided to join me on the voyage south. He is going via the North Dokota and the "UP" (upper penn of Michigan). Yes this is his DRZ400 dual sport (street legal dirt bike if you ask me) and YES he is certifiable insane, certificate given via US Air Force.
    Well he is a oil change-o-holic and I wanted to wait out a bad red cell of storms passing thru...


    My steed is ready

    And this is what's left from the storm... so we set off

    We ventured down to just into Kentucky and met up with Capt Avery on his vstrom.


    He had Chewy the site ambassador on point and ready to be handed off to another site member

    I took the highway time to grab a couple quick pics of the boys of my motley crew.





    Ebbs getting comfortable

    We end up rolling into Knoxville area about 10pm. We met up with the Trip (BMW GS & owner of the website) and Derf from New Jersey (yellow Honda CBR). Tommy from NY on his Aprilla showed up early the next morning. The crazyness started as soon as we all got up.
    The mess of eclectic bunch of bikes. We are 6 strong now.


    We adoned the tourpack of my Ultra with some south park funny.


    Derf's cycle showed up... and yes it got um... taped. But it happened in jersey. He just left it. When you have friends like this you don't need enemies.

    Then the "pink cock'ing" began. Ebbs was the first victim.

    Plus we named his bike

    Derf and I decide to try on ebbs bike... we're a bit short


    I take Trip's race fifty out for a spin and show them how to look like I was gg to drop a knee in my flip flops LOL

    We grab a bite at the cracker barrel

    Again with some rolling shots


    myself

    Tommy


    Trip

    We made a few stops along the way as we ventured south to Georgia

    to find that many are already there.
    (R to L bikes) Rae, hubbs Jason, and mom & dad

    Everybody is catchin up...


    and Rae decides to try on the tall ebbs bike, she don't fit either.

    We each retire to our cabins. These are individually owned, but maintained and rented by the resort. Kinda like a time share.
    This is mine. I pull in...










    Master where one of my buds (Tigger) and g/f (Tiffany) will stay

    My and Capt's sleeping arrangements... I'm here first and claim bottom bunk



    How will I turn this pig around?

    So I think... ride thru the front "lawn" and turn around. But instead of backing down the slopped driveway... Just ride back up.

    This is how I wanted to end up...

    But things are never that simple...
    Well I guess listening to Ebbs and Trip got the best of me. My half ton beast didn't like the wet slippery Georgia clay...

    Barried clear up to its mufflers and self standing...Might as well rock it out... cause it happened and will now forever live.

    And yes to this day... my tires are still stained from that mud!
    We all meet back up at the Lodge for some dinner



    Next day go for breakfast




    Then we had 2 groups. One group that I didn't go on hit the GAP and some of the skyway.

    we hit "Blood Mountain" for some picture runs and fun.

    Hangin out road side to take the pics




    Trips

    I think Derf has a thing about tea baggin...cough I mean sittin on other dudes seats... LOL

    Me and derf... um... cuddle? Talk about an ugly couple

    Get back to the Lodge before more rain gets up (that never came)

    Tigger and Trip

    Bonesaw is ready for... um... who knows.. but it involves drinking

    Let the drinking and mayham begin...
    Ebbs

    Me

    Bonesaw holds his composure

    Well there was lots of craze... when the Capt Morgan 100 proof busted out, it was said "This will not end good!"
    Yeah that ended up being me.
    Fast forward to the next morning...
    One of The Lodge owners pouring me some pepto... fittingly in a shot glass no less


    We gather up for our big ride day thru 4 states (GA, SC, NC, TN). I'm still feeling it... grrrr



    TNX Derf

    But the show must go on... So we hit the road.
    All is going well till Jason (a new rider with only 1000 miles under his belt) bit it in a corner. All was ok but his front peg which snapped off his Kaw. I was able to fit the rear passenger peg in its place with a washer from the muffler mount.

    Missing peg and washer


    The repair

    After which we stopped at this amazing restaurant in a "hot spot" gas station in Franklin, NC.

    Trip checking the GPS


    Tiffany and Tiggers bike

    Ginger's front fender got stickered LOL

    Caffe Rel



    I should have turned the sandwich but you get the idea. It's 5 star dining. The owner and cook was a big shot cook in New York city but got sick of the hussle & bussle. Moved out here and settled in. Fantastic food. Just look at the fresh made chips.

    We split into 2 groups to get back to the lodge. One for the super slab and one for the scenic twisty route.
    Drewpy got a good shot of me and my passenger Becca (Ginger's wife)

    We get back and decide to line up the bikes... Let's go get your bike Amorok!

    Bonesaw on Tiffany's bike

    Hold on...wait... Trip on his "Barbie" bike?

    Jason... FRONT & Center

    Everybody got back fine. To all 10 some states. I ended up with just shy of 1700 miles in 7 states (including Michigan)

    Rolling almost 11k in my 14 months of ownership... not too record breaking but not bad.

    And got a few more state stickers too.
