Very cool !
One of the fun things about buying the Versys is that it drives the desire to take all these roads I have passed for years. You always find cool off the beaten path stuff.
I jumped on 421 this morning for some beginner twisties which dumped me out in Bristol. Saw some stunning properties and gorgeous views.
Had I continued for a couple of miles, I would have been on The Snake. I had no idea.
Back roads for life !
You live in the best place in the world for motorcycles. I put several hundred thousand (BMW) motorcycle miles from Dunlap, TN and then from Nashville on weekends. Every weekend, I'd look at the Weather Channel and explore an area, drop by a big city, and put around 1000 miles per weekend. TN is the best, but where TN/GA/SC/NC meet, there are nice areas too.
My favorite ride was right near where I lived: Suck Creek Mountain between Chattanooga and the Sequatchie Valley. It's 20 miles of low, medium, and high speed turns. Go to one side and turn around, at least once. No cops and State Troopers in the mountains will out run you in their Crown Vics
That was definitely my favorite place I've lived: $350 for 3 bedroom brick house with single garage (and door opener) right next to the side of a mountain
Now in California, I pay twice that for a freaking single room (but I finally got my double garage w/a door opener :-)
Great pics, but all the animals I've seen from Canada in your pics are made of plaster.
I haven't seen one bird or anything.
Are there any live ones up there? I didn't know if hunters and cold Winters got them all.
Wild animals are pretty smart and don't return to unfriendly areas (but a whole continent?)
Birds are a key metric anywhere I go now. If there aren't any around, then something is seriously wrong.
