Carving up the Smokies

Posted by on Nov 18, 2009 in Mexico & Central America, Motorcycle Vagabonding | Comments Off on Carving up the Smokies

Sapphire, NC – Primm Springs, TN Moving Time 8:09 387 miles Mom woke me up with a start at 7:30 telling me it was a gorgeous day to travel. Yesterday morning it was 35 degrees with a hard frost, so I assumed it would be another cold morning and had gone back to sleep. Yikes! I still hadn’t finish my route in Mapsource (Edward navigated this summer so I am a neophyte navigator) Mom and I hugged fiercely, then...

Cogent Dynamics – suspension setup

Taking care of Business Fletcher, NC – Sapphire, NC ~70 miles Joyce made a yummy delicious breakfast for us in the morning, then all of us went to the workshop. Another man-toy world, Rick has a tool to do *everything*. One of the coolest (I think) is the one in the corner where he can dyno the shocks to make sure they fit the customer’s spec perfectly. The tool even talks to a computer and he gets an immediate...

The push to North Carolina

Hillsboro, WV – Fletcher, NC Moving time= 6:39 367 miles I woke up this morning to fog and a thermometer that read 29 degrees. I guess I was getting out of the Northeast just in time. Joel made me a nice breakfast, I followed him around taking care of all his animals, and I got the industrial tour of the farm. 11-ish I was back in the truck, across the river to retrieve my bike, and on the road....

Joel’s Place

Posted by on Nov 15, 2009 in Mexico & Central America | 2 comments

So Joel lives across a river. He has a refuge / animal sanctuary where he helps animals in need — both domestic and wild. He’s an interesting character. Former motorcycle rider, he told me he called in “well” to work when he was “38”, told his boss he was going for a motorcycle ride, and left for 5 months. He went back to work and tried to resume his duties at the NIH, but it didn’t jive any more...

Continuing with my story…

Nov 4th Machester, MD – Hillsboro, WV Moving time: 6:00 298 miles Jeez, I was cold today. It seemed pretty warm when I got started, but it never got above about 50 degrees today…so my body core eventually got cooler and cooler. Twisted Throttle set up the bike with heated hand grips and a plug for my electric (Gerbings) . The DR650 has a puny alternator, so Twisted also very cleverly installed a battery monitor — a little dashboard...
