Good story Bones. US421 is my favourite motorcycle road (so far).

Always trust your cape.

Yep, another good one, Bones!
I liked the family business aspect of the article. Support these folks and they'll support you!

Good read! You've gotta love those smaller family owned businesses that still understand the concept of good customer service.

I can't wait to get my V up in the W NC/TN/N GA mountains.

I've been to that neck of the woods several times on a bike, but so far it's always been on my ST. Would love to toss the Versys around on those roads, for sure.
