  1. Sunday around 4:30 the phone rang and it was my friend Greg calling to see if I was up for a ride on Monday as the weather was going to be great and he had several vacation days left to use this year. Knowing that I start my new job with Sherwin Williams on Thursday, Greg knew I was probably able to enjoy the day on the bike. When asked my very first response was "Deals Gap?" "I've never been..." Greg replied. He was looking for a day ride but not for what was about to transpire. We agreed on the destination as I promised him we could make it there and back without freezing or getting kil
  2. Carri and I had a really good time at the 9th TMAC event this past weekend. Sunday morning we were up and on the road by 8am so I didn't get to say many good bye's. We left early so we could ride nothing but back roads home to central KY and make it in time my step daughter's softball game. The route took us across NC 215, one of my favorite roads of all time. Hope you enjoy the video. <iframe width="853" height="480" src="https://www.youtube.com/embed/VEssuC4boko" frameborder="0" allowfullscreen></iframe>
  3. Last summer Kenny and I took a four day adventure through five states with only one destination planned, VA 16. Running from Tazewell to Marion The Back of the Dragon lives up to the hype and then some. The beauty of the mountains and valleys in this region are breath taking. The views simply cannot be ignored but the switchbacks are so good you will have a hard time finding a good spot to enjoy the views. One of the top five routes I've had the pleasure to experience. I hope you enjoy the ride.. [media=] [/media]
  4. To motorcycling junkies like us DC I agree, the only music we need is that sweet V4.
  5. The whole area is beautiful and full of great roads. Thanks for checking out the video and be watching for more to come.
  6. Great shot. Great bike! One of a kind!
  7. Yesterday I had a great day of riding. Five of us made rode the Hillbilly Triangle here in Eastern KY and I was able to get video of the entire loop. The loop is about two hours of video that I'll have to edit for some time before a video can be published. So, to keep you entertained for a while, check out my video of the DiamondBack at Little Switzerland. Look closely and you might just see yourself in some of the pictures. :) The video is from last May but the pictures are from the Bristol rally in 07, I believe it was. Great times! Great memories. Enjoy the ride!
  8. So just before the old PC died, I had purchased a domain and web hosting from GoDaddy to start my very own site aimed at promoting my home state of Kentucky as a motorcycle adventure destination. Right now it's pretty much just a skeleton of a page as so much of the content I had planned on using was lost with the old PC. The new machine is working great and just last week a friend of mine informed me he has managed to get the old hard drives to spin up as slaves. With that my motivation soared and the basic page was created last week. Also, I got my first ride video uploaded to YouTube fr
  9. My good friend managed to get the drive spinning up enough to use as a slave. So... I get it back on Thursday (after he downloads the 7-8000 mp3s on there). There will be much iTunes migrating and video editing. Look for many new updates!
  10. Well, as you may or may have not noticed, I've been off the air for a little bit. Work has been a little busier and my home PC decided to go the way of Buell last week. So, I'm writting you today from my new PC. I got it from www.ibuypower.com and it's a pretty sweet rig. Intel i7, GeForge 560 2GB video card, Sound Blaster Audigy SE, 8GB of DDR3 1600, 1 TB hardrive, liquid cooled in a cool tower with touch screen temp. control. The sadest part is that the old PC was ok, but the hard drive died so tons of pictures and a years worth of GoPro HD filming is gone. (I guess I'll have to go ri
  11. Another nice day here in central KY for January and some friends and I managed to roll up about 240 miles. Our destination, the little town of Lorretta, KY. Home of the Maker's Mark distillery and the Abby of Gethsemani, home of the Bourbon Fudge Monks. We chose this area for it's rolling hills and winding roads. Nothing like the mountains of eastern KY but a very beautiful and fun area to ride. The day started with breakfast at in Berea at the Dinner Bell where I had steak & eggs with biscuits and gravy. Yum! There the route was discussed and once all of our group had assembled we

  13. Got some riding in today and anytime you can start a blog in January like that, living in Kentucky, well it has been a good day. Today's 60 degree high was a far cry from the 42 car pile up due to ice and snow on Monday. And after a few chores this morning, and lunch with Carri, it was time to get some cruising on the VFR done. Called up Kenny and some other riding buds to see who else was up for a ride. With UK playing at 4:00 many here in the bluegrass state were already a pitcher in at Gillum's so it was only Kenny and I. But, we had seats saved for the game at our favorite sports ba
  14. Good Tuesday morning to ya! Cold morning here in South Central, Kentucky that is... Jan.1st it was 57 degrees and sunny. I worked in the yard and cleaned out the garage with only a sweat shirt. But the thing about Kentucky weather, if you don't like it wait an hour and most likely it will change. Yesterday moring the low was about 40, which turned out to be the high. Winds from the North East picked up and the temps dropped like a Led Zepplin. (great band not so great means of transportation) By 9:00am it was snowing but not sticking. By the 5pm rush hour chaos had set in! With abso
