WNC Gravel Videos

WNC Gravel Videos. As an average rider at best, I was alone in Nov 2012 when I recorded these. Thus the pace is boringly slow, not intended as entertainment, but rather as a reconnaissance aid for adventure motorcyclists. Mileage approximate. Tried to only post videos that were not already on the web. A caution: All of the best riders I know have been forced off the gravel by an oncoming vehicle. Info: GSMNP 828-497-1900; Nat. Forest Svc. 828-524-6441.

Cowee Bald Rd Cowee Bald Road - YouTube /Conley Creek Rd Conley Creek Road - YouTube (My commute to work for years): From NC74 take 28S X14M, turn L onto West Mills Rd, then immediately turn L onto Snow Hill RdX3M, turn L onto Leatherman Gap Rd. X2M which becomes Cowee Bald Rd (Gravel)X5M, turn L onto Conley Creek Rd (Gravel)X6M. At end of gravel, paved Conley Cr. Rd takes you to Whittier, NC and exit 76 on NC74.

Cherokee Figure 8: 62M (37M gravel) Dobson Ridge Rd Dobson Ridge Road - YouTube /Hyatt Creek Rd Hyatt Creek Road - YouTube /Bunches Creek Rd Bunches Creek Road - YouTube /Jenkins Creek Rd Jenkins Creek Road - YouTube : NC19X1M E of Cherokee Casino turn L onto Wrights Creek RdX5M, turn R onto Dobson Ridge Road (Gravel)X5M, after BRPW underpass turn R onto Hyatt Creek Rd.(Gravel)X5M, turn L onto Heintooga SpurX8M, at cul de sac take Roundbottom Rd (Gravel)X17M, turns to pavement for 2M, turn L onto Big Cove RdX1M, turn L onto Bunches Creek Rd, 1st 4M paved then 5M Gravel, turn L at end of road, go a few feet and turn R onto Dobson Ridge Rd. again, thru underpass again, then in a few feet turn L onto Jenkins Creek Rd. (Gravel) X5M, turn R onto NC19X5M back to Wrights Creek Rd, completing the figure 8. Must be ridden in this order because Roundbottom Rd. is 1-way. Roundbottom open about May 13-Nov 30.

Hyatt Cove Rd Hyatt Cove Road - YouTube (Gravel): 2M, begins within feet of the beginning of the Heintooga Spur off the BRPW. At this junction on Heintooga Spur are Hyatt Cove Rd. to R or south and Hyatt Creek Rd. to L or north. Ends at NC19 .3M W of BRPW.

Rainbow Springs Rd Rainbow Springs Road - YouTube /Otter Creek Rd Otter Creek Road - YouTube /Tellico Gap Rd Tellico Gap Road.m4v - YouTube /Needmore Rd Needmore Road - YouTube (all 4 Gravel): From Ironhorse take 28SX10M, turn R onto NC74(West)X14M, turn L onto Wayah RdX29M, turn R (West) onto NC64X@7M, turn R onto Rainbow Springs Rd X13M, turn L onto Wayah RdX@6 M, turn R onto Otter Creek Road which becomes Tellico Gap Rd.X15M, turn L onto Needmore Road @7M(Gravel first 3M), turn L onto NC74 (West) Xfew feet, turn R (North) onto NC28S and back to Ironhorse.

Goldmine Rd Goldmine Road - YouTube /Dendy Orchard Rd Dendy Orchard Road - YouTube /Turtlepond Rd Turtlepond Road - YouTube /Hale Ridge Rd Hale Ridge Road - YouTube (all 4 Gravel): NC28SX44M turn R onto Peeks Cr. Rd. (then a tricky L followed by 2M paved and 1M steep gravel), turn R onto Goldmine RoadX6M, turn R onto Dendy Orchard RoadX4M, turn R onto Turtlepond Road X4M, turn R onto NC106X3M, turn L onto Hale Ridge RoadX2M (after the 2M Hale Ridge turns to L, then becomes gravel X11M), turn R onto Warwoman RdX11M, turn R (north) onto US441X32M, turn L (west) onto NC74, then 34M back to Ironhorse.

Thanks Wee Willy. I moved to AZ from the northeast love it here. The last artist was Ryan Bingham "Boracho Station". He's got some good stuff.

Back roads riding on a DL650AL2 - Southern Zealand, Denmark.

From one of my last rides of 2012, before winter ended the motorcycle season.

I'm riding with some guys from a danish motorcycle forum, that I've had fun with the last few years. I start the ride in the back of the groupe. For the last part of the ride I take the lead and act as a guide.

Salton Sea / Calexico Febuary 2013

Just relocated from Oregon to SoCal and I must say although I miss the PNW there is nothing like being able to ride every single day down here. So much to explore. Anyway finaly got a week end off and was able to take the week end and head off into the desert. Headed to circle the Salton Sea then to Calexico and back home to the OC. 550 lazy miles up 74, down to the 76, 2 and into Salton City and up and around the Sea down to Calexico then back 76 to Oceanside and up the 5 to San Clemente and up PCH to home. Fun ride!! Put to gether some pic s of the first half and attemped to find some approprate music.

Half day ride past Tortilla Flats, AZ

Finally got a chance to use my GoPro. I took a ride out past Tortilla Flats on HW88 there in AZ. Quite a few cars out there but still a nice ride. The section I though might be worth shareing is the eastern side of Fish Hill Creek. Not much editing done and no music added but its the 1st video I'v ever posted, so enjoy!

Here is an onboard of a ride on my 2012 DL650 on a nice piece of flowing road on a sunny Sunday afternoon, Queensland, Australia.
Bugs on lens but it replicates what we all put up with and adds to the reality of the clip I reckon.
