First ever overnight motorcycle trip with the Wife - Asheville

Registered
Diana and I have been married for over 4 years now. We have gone on several overnight trips to places but never on a motorcycle.. We finally made it happen and we could not have ordered better weather to do it. We packed up the bike and headed off to Asheville for 2 nights to see the Biltmore.. Temps in Asheville never got over 79 and was only 82 in TN when we got home... I had a blast and cant wait for the next one (i'm already shopping for side luggage )

Now for the pics: quick stop in the Nantahala Gorge

On the way back in the Nantahala we ran upon a Harley rider who fell asleep on the bike and crashed HARD.... His Street Glide was literally flipped upside down in a ditch and they life forced him out...

Awesome! I remember my first time :laugh:


When did you get a Viffer?

Its technically my Dad's. After he bought his Goldwing, also having a Concours didnt make sense so he wanted something more nimble but still comfortable for those rides without his wife.... However, he does not have room for it so I have the liberty of storing it and using it as I please..... But possession is 9/10 of the law right? :laugh:

It's an 07 and after putting 700 miles on it in 4 days, it now has a whopping 3400 miles :)

I was probably on the receiving end of that chopper flight at Erlanger. But I digress.

Great pictures and glad you had a good trip. I make a run to the dragon twice a year. Ya gotta live, right?

I'm glad for you both Jay. Great bonding time. It looks like the weather held out perfect for you guys (yet it was still HOT here in Middle TN).

I have to read TITLES of threads more slowly, first OVERWEIGHT motorcycle trip with wife. :whistle: I thought somebody is going to be in trouble. Then I reread it and said that is better. Nice pictures, great way to see the country.
