Talking Great Ride Today

Rode hwy 28 out of Walhalla SC to Highlands NC. Fun ride , many twisties beautiful sights. Paused in Highlands for liquid. Took hwy 64 down toward Cashiers, this is where it got interesting. I was having a great time , left, right ,left, right ,then long sweeping left with mountain side obscuring view of traffic coming up toward me. On this left hander I was riding on the right side of the lane. Well, around the bend comes a semi half way in my lane towing a wide load crane on a flat bed with no escort ahead of him. Cleared the semi with room to spare however the track of the crane stuck out another two to three feet. I have to give the Wee credit, it really responds to evasive manuvers. I cleared the tracks and continued on to Cashiers. Took a right on hwy 107 and headed back to Oconee county past the State park and back to Walhalla. Even though I had one close call it was the best ride I've had on the Wee to date. If anyone would like to do this ride with me, sans semi, let me know. There is good BBQ in Cashiers and Highlands. A good ride and good food go hand and hand. Be safe and have fun. Mike D.
