Arriving Fr early afternoon.  Looking forward to seeing everyone.  Don't judge the ride (Gold Wing).

I’ve made it.
 

Sounds like Microtel have been pretty busy, so later afternoon check-in.

I've made it to town.  Grabbing an early dinner and heading to the Hampton (not staying at Microtel). 

 

Planning on being at Microtel about 830 am if anyone cares to take a leisurely ride in the morning.  I'm nursing a bit of a back injury, so may be more sightseeing this week and resting often.

We're in there!

 

Will load video/pics over the weekend. Had a fun time and it was nice to meet some folks.

Sounds like a bass drum followed by a cymbal. I don't think that I can learn anything from that! I hope that the rider is okay.

Top of Mount Mitchell 360 video for folks who haven't been. The new observation deck is pretty sweet!

 

 

 

Super mellow ride on route 28 south from route 74.

Last of the "more" boring videos. It was a very low key trip for us!

 

Route 30 N from the lake (one of my favs). 

 

 

 

Route 315 north, another favorite in the area. 

 

 

 

And lastly, the super secret squirrel road I love.

Nothing at all boring about these.  I can listen to GDC whine all day long . . .  What I really should do is play these whilst wrenching in the garage so I can hear it.

Thanks! The sound isn't as nice as it should be, as the GoPro is in a case, and out in the wind.

I told all of you guys about it at the hotel...but if I have to tell you here  publicly, I'd have to...you know!

 

That lovely little road is actually much longer, but we already had a big day and it was HOT!

Where are the rally reports other than my boring ones? Who rode where? What did you guys eat? Crash details? Pics/video? What did you guys think of the hotel...and food options in Franklin?
