Awesome ride today, Deals gap in January is Awesome.

Well, finally the weather cooperated and I got to head out to the gap.

I decided that I should try out my new trailer before I head to fl, so, I loaded up the 9er


trailer worked great!
Headed over the the foothills parkway.



As I was unloading a brandie new vette pulled up.


I talked to David for a little bit and told him I would email him some pics of him and his new baby. Nice car!

I made it over to the overlook.



The gang's all here



I made 4 passes up and down and started heading for home.

pic by the lake.






Every rider needs good protective gear!



Back home I need a snack, dinner won't be till 9:30 cause my wife has to work.



All in all a great day.

Little thing called the second amendment.

and a Tn ccw.

Better to have it and not need it, kinda like the rest of our safety gear.

Our weather here in Florida is even better! But I'd rather have the gap any day. Took the car there last year, first time I'd been there, gotta get the bike there some day, what a place!

I've got a lot of places to see! (on the bike) :-)

Do it once to get it out of your system. It's kind of neat to see. It's best to go to Deals in the off season. The more off, the better. Becoming way too commercialised. Come on, a booth at the NY Bike Show?! Wall to wall Harleys and anal cops (during "season"), no thank you. Been there. I'd just as soon ride Indiana.

Looks like a good ride. There were a few threads about Deals, apparently it was swarming with cops hiding in bushes with radar guns, etc..

What is the situation with the cops this time of year?

The only police presence I saw was when I was zipping across the foothills parkway.

none at the gap.

I live up here and get to go every other week or so.

I stay away in the summer, too many idiots, some in uniforms, some in leather.

This summer I counted 28 thp cars in 10 miles. It sucked.

It is a ghost town in the winter.
