Nice pics Jen

Good to see old friends. Sorry it was so cold there. I cant complain about the weather here. Looking to come back to Michigan sometime soon for good! Here are some pics from our ride today on HWY 421. It is like the Dragon, but a little closer to home. Chris can appreciate this. This TL has 50,000 miles on it.

Yo Kid!
Is that the section, "the Snake" west of Shady Valley, in your pics?

Jen and I and a few others (about 50+) will be there next Fri and Sat.

Yes. These curves are about mid way down the south mountain. We pulled off to take some pics. The entire road is like that. It is hwy 421. I think it is 487 curves, 11 miles on 3 mountains. Support the Country Store when there. The locals hate the bikes, but they took a stand against the community and support the riders. The store is kinda like a beginning point between the 3 mountains.
