Stc 07

had a good time seeing ya'll, enjoyed the pics Don and well as seeing some of the high pojunts tour pics.

funny on the way therre, i was in the middle of no wherre, we were just lazilyy headed to STC, well off on a corner was a GS and rider just sitting there, so I crossed over to see if there was anyything we could do, there it was MArc headed in circles again finding new roads and just having ablast ! Hey Marc I found some more new ones this sunday and Monday.

Saw Dragon turn down 28 off 74 on his way home, we were at the gas station on the corner as we were getting ready to head NE to the BRP then on through Caesers head over to table rock on to Monroe NC to see friends and have dinner.

Got some new jackets from Dan, Karen loves hers so far.

it was a great 5 day weekend for us we finished it off riding up Currahee Mountain (AKA 3 miles up 3 miles down by some military folks) to watch the sunset before our final leg home last night. It was a pretty steep washed out rocky service road some washboard ruts were about a ft high and real close together, making it real easy to get sideways kicking out rocks n stuff climbing through some of the steep sharp curves even at slow speeds, by far Karens most challenging ride ever particularly with a full Cell and loaded to the hilt

all in all one fantastic weekend for us!
Enjoyed seeing all, We sure missed Mr and Mrs Keen though.

Only if

Hey Tom

It would even be better if you had a K1200S to blast around the Dragon and Cherohala a couple of times huh?...... LOL

Next time, for the right money, I will let you take mine......

Oh yes and I promise I will have new tire by than.

Tom - I'm still trying to find my way home... Always looking for the long way around!

It was great seeing you and Karen last weekend. Darcy Bastos and I took a fairly round about ride back to Alpharetta but got home at a decent hour.

I'm actually in Dallas right now for work. Last minute thing. I'll be here until Sunday.

Take care,
Marc
