Default 2326 Miles Round Trip

Rode from Vermont to Deal's Gap via Skyline drive and the Blue Ridge, then to Raleigh NC, Bike performed flawlessly, comfortable, thanks to the mustang seat, and then back to Vermont. Had a great time. Would highly recommend the Smokey mountain area for your riding pleasure.

Some quick stats.

Highest mileage day was 613 in 14 hours mostly at 75+ mph with an average of 48.8 mpg.

highest temperature noted was 109F.

Friendly folks met - lost count.

Hours in the saddle- 56.

Number of times over deals Gap- 3

Fun Factor- Priceless.

'12 Vegas, 78 Bonneville, 69 BSA project.

Default Nice ride

Sounds like a great ride. That part of the world is on my bucket list.

ATGATT because walking away in disgust is better than riding away in an ambulance.

Never get to busy making a living that you forget to make a life.
