Starting to get excited. Have a route planned - riding 36 all the way to Ohio unless it bores us out of our minds then we'll improvise. New tires sitting in the garage waiting for install. Want to scrub off some rubber from the old ones before installing. Have to check the rear brakes for wear but other than that and the tires we're good to go.
Torrey just got us reved up and eager to go. Need to check out the internet to see if we're passing by any road attractions like big balls of string or buried cadillacs. This is the first time we won't have to be in a hurry.
See you all there.

That reminds me..............

Gotta get going with some good ones for planning from my neck of the woods. Obligatory stop will be Lurray Caverns on the way down.

Yesterday I did a day ride that included the area of the upcoming UnRally. Most of the roads are in good shape.
A few pics:

Road about 30 miles on the Blue Ridge Parkway


Mount Mitchell was in clouds so I didn't stop.


A view from one of the many overlooks


Southeast of Asheville at Lake Lure


A fun ride up 226A to Little Switzerland


The Little Switzerland Inn Village



I walked around inside the lodge, but unfortunately had left my camera on the bike. Great views out the back.

Everyone is going to love this location!

Is it ALREADY TIME? Man it feels like the last year has just flow by. With BRR on the rocks right now, this may be the last hurrah in the smokies this year. It's going to be AWESOME!!!

Only 56 days or 1344 hours or 80640 minutes or 4838400 seconds or 2 cycles of the moon to launch. I'm not anxious for this at all.......

56 days! I need to start planning. I'm arriving at the UN on Monday. I want to tour the JD distillery in Lynchburg, TN on Sunday. I can cross the Canada/US border August 4th, either at Niagara Falls or Port Huron.
So, in between the border & Lynchburg, does anybody have any route recommendations or special places to stop? (I don't really require the most expensive places to stop)
