WNC Alert

The NC Motor Troopers are visiting WNC this weekend.

Don't say you weren't warned.
Those Beemers sure look like they would be hard to shake when they are chasing you.

They were doing license checks on US129 south of Robbinsville then they decided to visit Deal's Gap.

There are thousands of Miatas in the area, also.

I'm going East Saturday for BBQ in Cashiers. MMMMMMMMMMMMMMMM...

Re: WNC Alert

It seems that between the Blount Cty fuzz (Tennessee side), the Tennessee Highway Patrol and the NC State, it's hard for a guy to have any fun!

I am heading to Marietta tomorrow to pick up my scoot after repairs (bike wreck)

Re: WNC Alert

I do think TN is going a little overboard. It is all about the money.
Have you been on 360, yet. They have new pavement from Vonroe to the stop sign at
Ball Play Road and they are within a couple of miles to Tellico Plains. I love new pavement.

NC Troopers just make a presence of force. All of the NC Troopers that I have met are decent guys.
I can't say if I have heard of to many local riders getting popped by NC.

I can say that my wife and I were moving across the Skyway early on a Sunday morning. We were about five miles into NC heading east,
when we rounded a curve and a trooper was sitting on the right coming out of a hiking area.
We like to sh1t trying to get down to 45mph. He followed us at about 50-55mph for about a mile and lost interest.
I do feel that if we had Florida tags we would have gotten a ticket...
And I am good with that. Their tourist dollars help pave our roads.

143 from Robbinsville to SnowBird has new pavement completed Thursday.

They are now completing the paving of 294 from 64 to Candy Mountain.

Now if some of the secondary roads could get some.

Re: WNC Alert

I haven't been on 360 or 143 since the repave. 143 was a nightmare with all of the loose gravel.
