This was one of my favorite songs from my early days:

I'm kinda of partial to spiders - I think they are misunderstood!
Yes, that's "BearDog" my four year old skipper. Here he is again:
I "learned" to ride on several of my friends' Harley 125s and 165s in about 1954 when I was 13. One of my friends was sent off to military school, so he let me keep his 165 except when he was home...
Here's a picture from this morning's Asheville paper of a section of the parkway near milepost 348. It may take a year or more to repair some sections of the parkway damaged by rains from Frances.
Yes, even without prior legal precedent, an LEO pointing a laser at you is a very bad thing, particularly if you're well over the posted speed limit!:dunno
It was my fraternity pledge name many years ago.
Front page article in today's Asheville, NC paper:
Apparently not everyone was pleased with this rally:
Hi scbmwrider. Welcome back. Will look for you hanging out at Touring Sport BMW and along the SC and NC roads.
The Parkway was really great today. Very little traffic and beautiful views.
One of the greatest cars I ever owned. Number 1 son posing next to it just after we bought it in the winter of 1970 in Michigan.
Great pictures Veg, keep them coming. I never considered the loop around White Rock Lake to be a motorcycle destination, joggers tend to make better time than motorized vehicles, but you sure make...
Hi Veg, great post. I've ridden most of those roads myself at one time or another. Love riding in East Texas. Great FM roads, usually with little traffic.
Rundel, we didn't realize you were that young, but I think our advice still holds.:)
Rundel, from my own experience, I recommend the Honda Nighthawk 750. It's a great first bike, and it's good enough that you won't tire of it too soon. I put about 7500 miles on my Nighthawk over...
I lived in Tuscaloosa for several years, and yes, it is a great place. Many good m/c roads in all directions.
Veg, here's something interesting. Money magazine has come out with the best places to live:
The Dallas area seems to be one of the top spots. ...
:thumb Have a great ride Veg - here in western NC, I put Stabil in my R1100RS's gas tank today and stored it for the winter. This is what it looked like outside my garage this morning.
Veg, there are two Highway 121's north of Dallas. State Hwy 121 between McKinney and Lewisville is a mess, but I'm referring to FM121. Pick up FM121 at Van Alstyne (on US75 about 30 miles north of...
Yes, that's my other toy - a 64 356C coupe.
Just took delivery on a 94 R1100RS, Pearl Silver. Only have put about 50 miles on it so far - holiday stuff and bad weather, etc. Did take it up the Blue Ridge Parkway for a few miles earlier this...
Veg, great write up on your trip. I've traveled those same roads many while living in Dallas. Never had the nerve to ride the bike through lower Greenville and Deep Elum at night, too many drunks...
Started on a 1952 Simplex Servi-cycle which I bought used for $90 in 1955. Rode it for about two years, and can't remember what happened to that bike.
Then there was a gap of almost 40 years...
