1.5 weeks had nowhere to go

I've been out ramblin' on a trip I called "1.5 weeks and nowhere to go". I logged it on our local forum and want to share a few posts/pics:

I'm going to try and log a trip with no laptop, no iPad, and without a camera, just a phone

As of tomorrow its on to my daughter's in GA, moms in SC, TN/NC mountains, designer Billy Reid's place, and anywhere it may look interesting within that book on the seat within the Southeast





Ohhhh yeah shack by the track for the real hickory smoked food. No oak nor Palm tree woot



One owner, low mileage, parked for thirty years, and no charge for the portion of the truck already rusted into the earth

Now we 're into the good stuff





I like me some one lane bridges



A must eat at place! Highlands, NC grocery store



I thought if it stayed parked here a long enough for me to consumer an iced venti it may turn into a Duc



Still haven't purchased a tablet, but got a magnifying glass and a stylus for the droid phone



Coming up - Country music hall of fame tomorrow and grand ole oprey. Not into country but i gotta live just a little

Didn't take many pics here but if you're ever in Nashville STRONGLY suggest the country music hall of fame whether you like country or not



More friends and relatives, but again messed around a bit too.



Tin Lizzy lounge, highly suggest. FRied fresh Mississippi cat fish to die for, homemade greens and slaw. I don;t eat the carbs but the southern hush puppies looked great.



Taking a break -the front porch where Elvis grew up. Tupelo, Mississippi



Had dinner with Sheila at Silver Star Casino

Great times. Next is rural roads all the way to Dothan Alabama for coffee with jamie and ronda if one or both will meet me spur of the moment

Crossed Alabama all rural roads. And of course flat tracked some dusty dixie roads.

My bike would look different in this pic had i found a 1200GS button. I'll have an adv bike in the garage soon!



2759 miles and I decided to bring it home. Matter of fact after all day in the saddle I did all night in the saddle and got in at about 5:30 AM. Incredible trip.

Next real trip soon will be 3 weeks off and a ride out west spending time with family again along the way [url=http://s80.photobucket.com/user/stevewfl/media/bigthumb.gif.html][/url]

Nice!

FYI 've seen 10s and 11s going for 9K with no miles too. And you get the heat management, ABS/traction control, and a host of other things when they changed to the 10 design. But I'd rock any of these 100,000 miles with no worries. Valve lash checks every 25-30K and oil changes every 5 and mine has been bullet proof through all its torture treatment it endures =)

There is a 2011 here I have my eye on also. Black like my 14.....
I really like the 2011 Silver.........think it would be easier to keep clean......

Thanks for lookin out Steve. The 2011 one here (black also) I am offering 10,000 for doesn't have a mark on it. He's as nutty as I am about the way he keeps it. It has 14,000 miles on it though. If you see anything interesting no matter what year,(I do want the second generation like yours, but I can do alot with 3000 dollars or so difference) let me know please. Heck the 08 for 7000.00 and 3400 miles is a great deal I think. Thanks again.
