Last minute updates on STC II

Got several emails and PM from folks getting ready to head out to STC II, to everyone have a good and safe ride.

I have the lift loaded and hope to get it over to Ironhorse Monday or Tuesday.

Got email from John and Charlene (owners Ironhorse) this morning, you may remember that last October John rode a LT for the first time and with all the bikes that roll into Ironhorse, he chose an LT to buy and own. Well yesterday John totalled his LT, he has a badly bruised chest and couple of cracked ribs. Charlene said that the LT has be towed back to Ironhorse so the group can rebuild it for training... but interesting she said "One of the first things John said to me, when I got to the hospital was "Contact Lance with the Harley group that was there last night, he said he has an LT for sale. John is really disappointed that he won't have his LT to ride with you guys this week. I am sure we will have another LT soon. "


Sounds like John is going to be OK, and we wish him a speedy recovery.

Weather : highs in the mid 70s , Low in mid 40s, 30 to 50 % chance of showers... but it's the mountains and Spring.

Black Bear report: still on the Loose, reports are that the bear was hit by gunshot during the attempted child rescue.. just use caution at park pull offs in the Cherohala Parkway area (about 20 miles from attack area)

Also: there was a "Joe on a Ninja" sighting as well in the area.. now that something to worry about.

Ride safe folks...

See you at Ironhorse.
Have a Happy Easter.

Got another report this morning that the "Joe on a Ninja" is in the area still, some say he was last seen in the North Georgia Mountains...and is said to be headed to Ironhorse by mid week..

Folks can you imagine this...Joe, messenger13 hasn't posted in a while, matter of fact he is about 1824 posts behind, among fellow LTers, mostly likely on his Ninja, in the midst of the best riding in the world, this is going to be interesting

Sorry to hear about John's get-off, but glad he's recuperating.

Dave have a great trip...see you at Ironhorse.

I know Joe is out there, because he called me on the Bat Phone recently. Don't know if he's at his home base (Cleveland) or at Deal's Gap but if the latter, he's getting in an awwwwwful lot of practice for later this week.

Me? I plan to take it easy on the curves, maybe open a lemonade stand at the halfway point. I need to pay for recent service and new tires.
