I finally got time to put together all the pics I took from the different sources and wanted to share my adventure. In true Red1100cc style this was 'SoFla to Robbinsville, the Bash or Bust'

First day around 10am I headed out...man she was clean and ready to go...

First stop about two hours later for gas and a Red Bull for me. Got 180 miles out of 4 gallons.

About 7 hours later I was spent. Went 508 miles first day. This was the longest I'd ever been on a bike straight shot. Stopped just south of Macon Ga.

Nice feeling having your bike inside next to you. I let her cool off for a bit and then had to start it up to shoot her thru the door as it was a bit uphill. A few mins later I get a knock on the door. :hide: Then it came again so I answered it. The bike was kinda behind the door so I only opened it up a bit and the owner/mgr said he had to check the toilet? I said it works fine still standing in door and then he said he wanted to check for himself. We both knew what he wanted so I opened it up.

'OH! Uh Nice Bike?!?' he said. I asked if there was a problem and said I'd leave if I had to and then he said no its no problem. Seeing as how I was 50% of their occupancy I guess it didn't matter.

Woke up the next morning wondering why it was so cold and then remembered I had ridden 500 miles north the previous day...duh! Opened the room door to 50 something pouring rain, bummer! Ate at waffle house hoping it would slow and it only got worse so I donned my frog toggs per recommendation of Sir Drops Alot (the artist formerly known as TwoBrothersBusa) and mounted my trusty steed and hit the wet trail.

I rode 300 miles in constant pouring rain. It took me almost all day. Hate riding in it but had no choice. The rain gear worked for a few hours but after that I was soaked all the way thru and just miserable. Couldn't see for most of the day but Blanca assured me we would make it. It was still pouring when I passed this sign but turned around for a pic anyway. I guess this was about 100 miles out from Robbinsville.

After two days I made it!

Bike was FILTHY! Where's Sleepless Red and his pledge when you need him?

Not just a few minutes later Tim/Earlybird and Vabs pulled in soaked as me, although their wet clothes did smell a bit better than mine :whistle:

The first thing that really caught my eye was the fog on top of the hill across the way. It was culture shock for me because I hadn't seen hills and trees and things like this for a long time.

First night Tim said 'Thats no fire!'

'NOW, This is a FIRE!'

So first day there some of us rode up to the CRoT or Cross Roads of Time restaurant and gathering place which is right on bottom end of the Dragon for breakfast. From left to right the bikes are Semi, TwoToneVert, Capt, Blanca, CrazyArch and Earlybirds

Outside after breakfast I obliged a fan who recognized me and gave them a chance to sit on the back of my bike...

The next day it was raining and they couldnt ride so they took their frustrations out on some poor girls bike..

Later that afternoon Capt thought he saw blue sky and wanted some ice cream so they all decided to load up...

Mc and Snooki got ready....

Thirty mins later they ran into rain and were back.

So Tim and I decided to walk across the street and have a couple hot fudge sundaes...:laugh:
Don't know why they had to ride for it when they got em right across the street?

Later that night Capt tells Sir Drops Alot 'just wait till Blanca goes to log in, I changed his name :rofl:!'

This is a bummer of a sight. Sunday morning already. Loaded up and ready to go home. Hadn't really planned on it. Had the weather been a bit drier and warmer I would have stayed thru Monday. Really wanted to ride with you Peter on the Skyway but if it was forty something at the Phillips 5000 feet up on the Skyway would have popsicled me.

Made really good DRY time. Stopped for a Taco just south of Atlanta. Some durn idiot got back on I75 North and drove a good 20 miles before he realized he was going the wrong way. Really put me off that guy did!

Ten and half hours later I made it home in one straight shot. Traffic was really moving.
Total miles for the trip...

Wow so good to be home and kiss the one who really missed me!

From the first time I heard everyone likes to stay at the Phillips Motel I was curious what the rooms were like but nobody ever posted any pics so here's a few of the two room two bed full kitchen efficiency Tim and I shared.

Front door on left in front on first bed. Flat screen and sofa as well.

They say 'a picture is worth 1000 words' but this one to me is worth the 1769 miles I rode to get it!
Earlybird following me. Two Busas picture perfect Rollin.......:thumbsup:

I met a lot of folks and I apologize for not mentioning you.

Grumpy, great food
Bots and Rooster, great humor

Capt, Semi, Ace, TTV and wife Julie, Flicka, SirDropsAlot, Tiller, Earlybird, Vabs, Omar, Mc Mustang and Dawn,RacerV, Loomis, JellyRug and wife Heidi, SkyDivr, Pappy, Georgiabusa, Big E, Dk55Belair....ummm ??? crap many more I'm sure I'm forgetting?

Final morning I was sitting in Skydivrs truck at McDonalds and didn't realise KvHotDog was on his bike talking to us, as well as Lankeeyankee and TreyYoung (I think?) Never really got to speak much to them? They were around but same as many others I just didn't get a chance to say hey to all. Didn't really ride all the roads I wanted to either BUT that always leaves reason to return. Now that I know the Dragon is only ten hours away I can just shoot up Friday morning and come back Monday :laugh:

Great place, great time, great people, I miss you already :cry:


:laugh:
