What did I do today after work???

Wow and does my a** hurt!!!! If you use google earth to look at where my office is, you might find a surprise easter egg, that's all I will say about that. The skyway was in it's normal sh*tty condition. It got a lot cloudy and very dark, thought I would get rained on about 10 miles into the skyway, but as soon as I crossed into NC, the clouds broke and it was sunny for the rest of the day. Stopped and talked to Wheeler and watched him work for awhile, then stopped and ate at the Gap. Ran the dragon til about a 1/4 of a mile before the overlook, right where killboy was setup, and got stuck in a traffic jam. A semi and a RV decided to both try and go through a hairpin at the same time. Luckily I could dodge it since we got that luxury. Then made the trip to home, maryville... It was a good day of riding, but I am sore and tired.

The new grips helped my wrist out a lot though, it was a more comfortable ride. Plus the sound of my exhaust in the gap was so cooooooool!

Here is an updated pic. Haven't got the opportunity to get my pilot powers put on yet though...

Nice way to get to the office, although it looks slower than those straight highways lol. The geology also looks interesting. It looks like Highway 75 travels down the axis of a plunging anticline or syncline.

Your SV is all that. I am looking into an SV for a track bike. I left work today at two and wish I had that road to ride on. I'll be in Alabama the week of the 4th and seriously considering taking the bike down.

sweet. I live up north in Canada. Its not even the mountainous part of Canada, its right in the middle of the praires. There is nothing by flat straight roads and it can get pretty boring.

Nope! I was stuck in my truck all day and just got home about midnight. I plan on ridding all weekend tho.
