On Tuesday it was time to head for home.  I started out by doing a short stretch of the BRP.  View from Waterrock knob.



.



I rode 74 and 28 to Deal's Gap.  Being a Tuesday i figured it wouldn't be too crowded.

I was WRONG!!  It looked like a weekend there.



.



We had seen a bunch of Slingshots in Maggie Valley and there were some here to.



A Vanderhall:



???



I expected a slow ride stuck behind traffic but timed it just right when I rode through the Gap

This next pic is 129 as it runs along the lake.



I made it home around 5 PM after around 375 miles.  I was lucky as it never got hot even in Alabama.

I find it interesting the large number of cruiser bikes one sees at the Gap. Of course they are entitled but seems a bit out of character to me.

Nice trip.  Thanks Wynne for posting.  I ride more than post. I'm glad some can manage to do both.

Great pics.

I took a ride over to Decatur today.

This is not something you see every day on North Alabama so i went and checked it out.



.



Then I stopped by my favorite local dealer.  Anyone looking for mint 2015 Tmax with only a few hundred miles on it and a bunch of extras?

Out scooting around town yesterday and took a few pics.

Cheapest gas I've seen in a while.  I only needed 1.3 gallons so I didn't exactly save a bundle.



Local dealer had this latest version of ATGATT on display.

Temperatures in September have been hotter than July and August.  I got out early yesterday to avoid the heat.

I got out early this morning to try to beat the heat.  It's October and 96 degrees right now.  It was cool this morning.

My odometer went over 5700 miles today.  Not bad for less than 8 months of riding.
