I heard the Dragon is still partially closed from the rock slide. What was your experience with that?

It was closed at the Dragon store on the N.C. side,but it's still great riding everywhere else.We were in Maggie Valley the week before and part of the BRP was closed also.

I hated to miss a WildHair campout but I had let Willy-B know that I'd do my best to be at his campout in Suches if he were to hold it again. Turned out to be on the same weekend this year.

I did ride with a small group on Saturday and we made a run across the Cherohala after stopping by Mini Mikes place in Tellico Plains and eating lunch at the bakery. While eating lunch I spied a group of KLRs go by and sure enough it was some familiar faces that were eating at the other cafe across the street.




I waved at a few Stroms that day....even thought that I may have seen WildHair but could'nt find his pic on Killboy...so I guess it was somebody else.

This was me slaying the skyway that weekend.....did we meet?

If you were wearing a Reddish Orange and Black jacket I waved thinking you may have been WildHair. The light blue and grey is hard to tell apart at closing speeds. :mrgreen:

You?

No, I've already sent my money to Rick for the Eastern Rendezvous at Stations Inn.

I did a little scouting ride in the area today. :mrgreen:
