I wish.... We vacation in Brevard, Franklin and Waynesville. Like everyone and their brother, we are looking for a house in the area but gotta wait for that market to cool off a bit.

Looking at this picture, you'd think it was somewhere of the coast of California...some guy even swore up and down I was lying to him and that he "recognized the rock on the PCH" :LOL:

Whenever you're back in the area, hit me up!!!

Will do, we have a house booked in Waynesville for 2 weeks in June but I'll probably trailer my R12RT up as my wife likes to ride with me.

Bean and I wanted to finish the year the way you should, on a nice ride to the hills.

Some more pics off the phone. Top pic with the super moto was a 450 mile ride, stopping every ~65 miles to get gas 😂. Other pics were taken on Christmas Day headed out to meet a friend and his family.

Roads were scary slick starting out cause I got on the road early, but the roads in that area are soooo fun…empty as well because it was Christmas Day.😍

The neighborhood looks like it need waking up anyway. With the single clock you might be able to fit an Urban wind deflector, someone had a carbon one for sale here.

I was mostly looking for a nice bike for a ride in the hills with maybe 30% on unsealed roads and tracks.... with enjoyment all about 50% the ride and 50% the country.... whilst doing some photography (birds mostly)..... anyway this is what I ended up with.... I'm not into bright and flashy.

I guess it is only fair to end the year on a nice ride, which I did, see above, however, if you end the year on a nice ride you need to start the year on a nice ride...RIGHT...

So we did, Bean and I went out with some of the best ADV riders around, all on their amazingly large rides, and played cat and mouse through the wine country in northern California. Thing is, only some of it was on roads.

What a great day to start out the new year. Except maybe when you get stuck in the frozen mud.

No worries though, we made it out.

Okay other than a couple of well-earned and proud battle scars, a garden's worth of dirt and mud, Bean is back to her shining glory. Here are the before and afters, mind you the before you are looking at is after a series of creek crossings that got the big chunks off and a 3-hour road ride back.

Did I mention the part about two pounds of wax, half a bottle of spray-on, and four hours of scrubbing and numerous cuts and scrapes? Still worth it.

There was me thinking how good it was to finally see a nice dirty used bike rather than just another garage dweller. And then you do this.....:ROFLMAO::ROFLMAO::ROFLMAO:
