97 Miles today.
Left SE NC Friday morning around 6am and rode down to Peachtree, GA for the Flat Track Race on Saturday in Senoia, GA. Got up to rain on Saturday morning, so we pulled on the rain gear and went to breakfast at the IHOP. Went back to the motel and waited out the rain for a couple hours. Decided since we were so close to Alabama that we would ride over and have lunch. Beautiful ride through GA back roads with rolling hills. Got back to the motel around 3pm and rested up for the race that afternoon at 7pm. Headed out for Senoia which was only about 16 miles, but took about 35 minutes with all the traffic. First flat track race i have ever been to and it was a blast! Can't wait for another one to come close to us. Weather app indicated rain early Sunday morning, so we woke up around 3am and checked the weather, yep clouds were a brewing. We hit the road at 4am and the weather chased us all the way home. Each gas stop, we had about 20 minutes before it would start sprinkling on us. Jumped on the bike and ran for the next gas stop. Trip down took us about 9 hours with traffic. Trip home took 7h45m, a little more aggressive on the throttle on the way home. No traffic in Atlanta at 4am. All in it was 970 miles round trip and i would do it again today! The wife even had a blast and thats a plus! See y'all at the Pow Wow!
Legend says this historic Tennessee home had hidden passages for Al Capone
According to legend, Capone either financed or built the 1930 home called RyeMabee, also known as Castlewood, which now houses High Point restaurant. The three-story Tudor-revival house was impressive; it is built of stone, as are many buildings in this mountain town. It was closed when we were there but the restaurant’s website says, “The 1929 mansion with original hardwood flooring and authentic light fixtures, presumably financed by Al Capone, was put on the National Register of Historic Places in December of 1997.”
Drove 4 Laps at Talladega Superspeedway today.
Oh what the hell it’s only 50 miles from home. Me and a couple of my buddies went and checked out Arizona bike week. Actually a good time nowhere near as crowded as Sturgis Daytona or Laconia actually enjoyed myself.
Looks like a nice laid back event on a beautiful day. I think you had one of the best looking bikes there, Mike !
Need some of that....it's been a long Winter
Beautiful last 3 days in mid 80,s just bouncing around socializing a bit. Put on roughly about 600
Our weather is finally breaking into the 70's this week. Much better than the original forecast of upper 50's to 60's most of the month.
You got it rough in AZ @Ny Mike...
Some of the pics of the "pony truss" bridge's reminds me of the few left in the county around here. We had one a few miles from my house where they held a fall festival every year. Proceeds went to preserving the old bridge and the surrounding park. That came to an end when a "Karen" sued the farmer that provided parking in one of his fields. Some bullshit claim. The farmer said the hell with it, it's not worth it. Now the bridge is beyond repair....sad.
This inquiring mind wants more details.
How many cars were there? How was it organized?
How did you do, better or worse than you thought?
Hey IROQUOIS coldest winter in 26 yrs here …..But I handled it
Laps for Charity
50$: 2 laps but they let me turn 4.
Had to stay below the yellow line
Pace restricted to 100mph
It was AWESOME. How the guys do 200mph on that bumpy poorly transitioned banking is unimaginable.
I'm glad I did the laps in my Audi TTs. The Challenger would have been terrifying.
Not riding it today, but very soon...
The map section below is showing roughly 1,000 miles x 1,000 miles of Australia's south east corner. I am riding to Broken Hill in 2 weeks time. There is a gathering of 90 or so Indian riders. This is a re-scheduled ride that was 'Covidated'... Broken Hill is a mining town in the middle of not much. When in the Army, we used to call the middle of Oz the GAFA - the "Great Australian Fcuk All". Nothing has changed . . . There is a very small town just outside Broken Hill called Silverton, which got its name after the discovery of silver (!), believe it or not. It is still a "thriving metropolis" of about 40-50 people, with a very famous pub and gaol, dirt roads throughout (will be fun on the SF) and plenty of character. Oh, and Mad Max 2 was filmed in the region, along with a host of other movies and TV productions.
I will be taking it fairly easy, as I haven't done much long distance riding these past couple of years. Only going to do about 5-6 hours a day, including breaks. That means 3 days out, 3 days back and 2 nights in location. It should be a hoot and I will post some photos when the time comes.
The map shows a round trip, but I might go out and back - not sure yet. There is only about 110 miles difference, so I reckon the round trip might be the go.
Wow Juan!,.....You are stirring up old memories there. I won $900 at Broken Hill and have fond memories of Silverton too,.......At the time Paul and I went through there there was a very pretty blonde chick working the pumps at the Servo and as Paul put it, "She could work my pump any time she likes!!!!!",.........I still have her picture somewhere,...... She was safe from me,......hair colour you see,.....,........
Have a good trip Bud and do the full trip around the block,......Best way to go,.....,.....
PS: And yes,.....do take it easy for the first couple hundred,.......We never forget how to ride but like a lump of steel in the rain,........We get rusty!!!!,.....
Thanks mate, I cannot wait to get this one started. I have been to Broken Hill and Silvo a couple of times, but never on a bike. Should be great fun.
just a little ride today,.....
Second ride of my IMRG Mileage Master challenge. 383.6 Miles.
Grave of Meriwether Lewis next to the Natchez Trace trail.
Crash Site of Patsy Cline.
The "Eiffel Tower" in Paris, Tn
Nice. I posted the same Merriweather Lewis pictures when I did the entire Trace. It's gorgeous out there.
That's on my To Do list!
