Birthday Gap Trip

Recommended Posts

Planning on leaving Wednesday morning and heading to the Gap. Weather looks good. I have a few roads that I really want to ride down there. Probably stay around Robbinsville. My back tire only has another 500 to 1000 miles left. Going to just get a new one from Wheeler’s.

i really am just winging it. I want to ride the back of the dragon,  the 215-276 loop, and the northern Georgia run. I don’t have heated gear, so I won’t be leaving early to ride. Thursday or Friday I will probably be getting a new rear tire.

927 miles for 3 days. It’s been drizzling on and off all day. The further south the worse the rain was, didn’t make it to Georgia. I did manage to get a nice run on the Skyway and the Dragon. Had to get a new rear tire at Wheeler’s, a Dunlop RS3. Heading towards home tomorrow.

It rained most of the night in Robbinsville. Left the hotel at 8 am. It rained pretty steadily until almost Ohio, didn’t see blue sky until I was halfway through Columbus. It is a little less than 500 miles from Robbinsville to our place by 75/71. I did it in 8 hours. I was only off the bike twice. I rode for 4 hours straight before I took a break off the bike. The new Terry’s seat was well worth the money! 1400 miles in 80 hours, not too bad for a 61 year old man.
