I wasn't in a photographic mood this year (unlike Big Sky country, the NC forest looks pretty much the same everywhere).

Thursday morning Bernie mentioned that Killboy had taken a nice shot, so I bought my one and only souvenir of the trip:




According to my GPS, this was quite a trip:




Mach 12 on an 18-year old R1100RT, two up! It must be the Boston Green.


Don't fix it if it ain't broke, don't break it if you can't fix it.

I don't have many pictures from riding, because I was, y'know, too busy riding. But I did snap a few during the relaxing intervals at Fontana village.

Progressive Flo made an appearance:





The group dinner was outstanding. As Charlotte would say, "SOME PIG":



The big surprise came after the group dinner. Little did we know, it was going to be a heavy Flo night. When we woke up on Thursday morning, there was a huge mess, Flo everywhere. There was even Flo all over the bikes:













The work of the Fontana Witch, I suppose. Unless the Witch had a list of exactly which bikes belonged to BMWST Un attendees and which ones didn't, I imagine there might have been a few strangers who were scratching their heads that morning wondering why there was a little voodoo doll on their bikes.

Generally, they are:

US129 Photos

KillBoy

129 Slayer

MoonShine Photos

There are others. Will you help me search and compile a list?

It was the same photographer taking photos on two different days on the same curve of the BRP. Of course I failed to note the mile marker or where I was either time. dopeslap

I will Craig. I did a search when I got home, but that may have been too soon. At least one site listed 'The Skyway', which I assume isn't the Blue Ridge Parkway.
