my 2007 deal's gap pics

Around November 5th - The ZX14 and I had a great time at Deal's Gap. Unlike many suggested to me, we had NO trouble with cops and we blistered the dragon more times than I can count. Also hit Cheroholla Skyway that GUNNER suggested. I held a pace with the locals that new the roads and they were baffled my ZX14 could keep up. I let them know I could get more corner speed from a smaller bike but the ZX14 has no probs in the turns. Two of the folks rode crotch rockets 18 hours from Long island, NY

After the tourist stuff above I went and rode twisties were I once lived around Hickory, Wilkesboro, Jefferson, Blowing Rock, etc. Wanted to make it to Mt Airy and places in Allegheny Co. but no time.

The point of the trip wasn't to take pics but we snapped a few and I thought I'd share.

Pics:

Unloaded at a spot I could see the stuff from my 2nd floor hotel room (and slept with window open!)


I rode a lift while playing tourist and waiting on others



The group at one point - (we met and changed folks several times along the way)


Extremely twisty roads and beauty combined, oh my !!!!


Curves? I couldn't get the bike lower, I didn't have my knee pucks/leathers (more "ride" pics when photographer gets them to me).


Us at dragon


Me and Lisa the Gixxer chick


Lisa and I at the tree of shame


Lisa


The trip was ALL about the ride but we did take breaks




Paula and I


Us bored outside waiting to eat at "No Way Jose" Mexican place


Great food and the beer/tequila was flowing, couldn't have been as good as my large coffee in a to go cup! This Floridian was freezing the whole trip, usual temp was 67 degrees, 35 at night


Had I been wearing proper gear/knee pucks, a whole lot more of the underside would've been showing



***Next pics I went solo to another part of NC and road extreme twisties.***

I arrived late at night in Hickory NC and the nice lady lets me leave my stuff guarded right in front of hotel! Little southern hospitality going on


Solo was a great idea, and how could one not miss living in NC? This is a extreme twisty road going down the mountain outside Wilkesboro


Oh at one point of my trips i wanted to test the governments elevation accuracy


As I suspected, government is WRONG J, GPS says 5400 feet, with 12 foot error margin


What a place to have lived. This is outside Hickory NC


I missed the taste of the NC spring water and just walking over and grabbing a handful... and its COLD water!


More water


GSP can get me home, but planning routes required a map


Alone with the bike between Jefferson and Wilkesboro


Before heading back to town and trailering the bike for FL
