I don't know about where any of you guys were today but here in east Tennessee it was a high of 84 degrees and sunny for most of the day. Great weather to hit up the Foothills Parkway and US 129.
Lucky me traffic was light and there were only two cops on the dragon. I have found that a friendly wave to the police while making eye contact seems to keep me from getting pulled over on that road. It's really when you ignore the that they chase you or call ahead.
The more I get to ride this bike to more I love the way it handles. When I switched to it from my previous bikes I really didn't think it could be this much fun in the mountains, but it's awesome. I don't like to fly by other vehicles in double yellow line territory and and corners and luckily today all the other cars and bikes saw me coming and moved over rather quickly.
After beating the crap out of my floorboard i decided to have a look at the rear tire to see where the wear really ends and how much traction I have left before I lose lean angle and took a couple pictures.
I can't wait for kill boy, 129 Slayer, and moonshine photo to publish there shots from today. I think i really have she good ones in this batch.
The only down side of the ride was coming back in tot he city during a monsoon. I was totally drenched and had quite a bit of water in my boots. Unlike a lot of the cars there was no way I was going to pull over during that storm. When you're going through hell, keep on going.
We were up close to that area at Hiawasse GA. this weekend. Weather was great and the ride was terrific. Took GA 180 and 60 home, saw three sherrifs on 180 between 129 and 60. One had a couple of crotch rockets pulled over, luckily other riders gave me a heads up.
