Draik is an amazing kid that has the hearts of our members here at ETB. Chasing his dream of racing this year he has stepped up to the Ninja250 and is starting out this season pulling off some amazing podium Finishes. Given we are no business with cash flow and just a member supported group. We do what we can to help Draik further his dreams. Keep up with his race season on our track addicts board. His Father Kurt (R6boater) keeps us up to date with his current races and achievements. And also some really sweet Go-Pro footage. Also make plans to attend our swap meet/fundraiser Sunday May 5th. Any help with this event would be greatly appreciated. Check out the thread in upcoming events. Here is one of his latest videos....

xx PAULRIDES, Dec 17 - New Roads (to me) in NC & Good Ones to Explore

DID 'EM and LOVED 'EM.   Grin Do IT AGAIN -- You Betcha. 

Miles were 178 total (including going out of the way to Dan's coming home).  I shortened the ride and left out Santeetlah Village and the gravel roads I thought I might investigate were not to be:  One is a Private RD, and the other is a Forest Rd (gate closed). MPG holding at 63 MPG on Scooter with new Belt and Sliders.  Smiley
 
Not what you would call Hot Rode Rds due to look of the surface, but basically traction was good, just the looks kind of slows you down. One road (Oil Field Gap) did have several curves with gravel kicked up from repairs (Tar and Gravel repairs on the shoulder) that were not too much of a problem as you could see it before getting into the curve. I ran that road twice (south from Maples BR to Yellow Creek and then back to Maples BR). It is only about 3 or 4 miles one way, I saw it on GOOGLE (Curvy) and worked it in to the ride.
 
I left home at 8:40AM, topped off gas at Weigel's in Seymour and left at 8:57AM (the thermometer on the Scooter settled at 44F a short distance west of Seymour). I saw a low of 37F on the Foothills and temperatures stayed in range of 41 to 43F most of the day with a little sunshine (short time of it) near the Yellow Creek junction with Hwy 28. I was dressed for it and comfortable all day. 
 
I called Dan when on the Foothills coming home to let him know I made the ride since we had talked about doing it together (weather messed uip THU Plans and Dan had appointment WED Morn). He said, come by and have some coffee. OK, I have time and still get home reasonable time. Then, he had a nice warm bowl of chicken noodle soup waiting (About 2:15PM). I had my picnic lunch on the road and was saving for Dinner Date with Betty at Logan's (she had coupon). Anyway, I ate most of the soup and drink the broth (warmed me up).  I would have been home by 3PM except for stopping at Dan's, instead made it home at 4PM and had final temperatures as high as 47F. 
 
The DRAGON was deserted -- no MCs and only a few cars. I let it 'hang out' a bit coming home ( 'hang out' for me is slow for some  Shocked  at 17 MIN from Deals Gap to Overlook where I caught two cars). Deals Gap is closed for the season.
 
Pictures tell the story - start with the main purpose of the ride (NEW ROADS).
 
First Road was Yellow Branch - NOTE:  the surface, looked shaky like loose chat, but I tested it a couple times with hard stops (No Skidding - not as slick as it looked). Still, I took it a bit easy on curves. The road is more interesting near Hwy 28 end with a bit of a Mtn Pass. Last picture show intersection with Hwy 28.

xx Happy Birthday LukeNukeEm!

we buried my uncle "dobber doyle " today . he went from north africa to to berlin. 41 to 45 . he never married & now the medals are left. he didn't get them till about 4 or 5 years ago. john duncan jr. had to find them for him. dobber was 96. my aunt who is 98 ,well they go to her . but she said , "no, they go to the oldest male"  . that's my cousin david & he said"well there is 7 of them so i'll give them to you & your boys & their boys. " i said "no" & my boys said"no" . because none of us have been the service. so now what do we do with dobbers medals.   one of them i s a silver star.? i said " keep them together & just pass them down the line " but none of us was been in the service & we don't deserve them.
