Foothills Parkway: Group Test

Dateline: Knoxville, TN 4/14/02

Where the rubber meets the road: can a slowed-down, older rider on a TL-thou' S and a relative newcomer on a Ninjette keep up with a pair of blazing lunatics on an R1 and a YZF750?

I doubt it, but it'll be fun anyway.

Have fun this Sunday, y'all.

No, I can't keep up with loonies.

Tore across Foothills Parkway and hung a left to Deal's Gap. Too many sightseers, Miatas and looming rain, so I waited at the scenic view at the bottom while they stormed the Gap. Chatted with some cool folks 'til they got back, then we turned around and rode back across Foothills in the rain.

Quite an enjoyable Sunday.

keepin upw/ loonies

Good day to you! Ya know its not really about keepin up with loonies. Its keepin the dirty side down and having fun! As far as a "group" ride goes if everyone will do about the same{sane} speeds.....speed is relative......I mean say you are on your TL and I'm on mine,Bro Trey is on his GXer1000,Rick is on his SV, and so on so whats the difference...if we're all riding the same speed say all about 75-85........speed is bike or another may be running at higher rpms but again speed is relative.
There are many more really good roads around the Gap....some further South like those around T.W.O. "Wolf Pen Gap road" beautiful.....Are you folks coning up to VIR for the AMA finale? can be found at of August...may be hot bring H2o .
We plan to cam out in trees just across bridge near infield. Bring friendds,we plan to have party to end em all folks from all over N.C. to be there....Take care dont worry about loonies...


damn all this talking/typing crap I'm going riding...
