hello everybody

Well, how should i start this thread...
Back home since about two weeks now, and still try to sort out my pics on the computer, my work is going full speed, my bikes and my wifes car needs new service for new MOT, lots of dates for meets, rides and big swap meet. so,i am pretty much occuppied right now.
But: of course i will tell a little bit of my very first Three State Mountain Ride.
I did follow the stories with lot of interest, because it looks like to be bikers paradise roads. Well, you might know that i have been doing the Blue Ridge Parkway some twenty years ago
when i have been the first time in the states. So i had some idea, what i should expect. But it is all different, cruising in an Oldsmobile Cutlass which was my ride. it is much more fun on a BSA..
So, after crossing the states from east to west to the international BSA Rally in California, and back again,this should be my final highpoint of my 4 weeks trip.
Bill No Name Man, our souverain chauffeur brough us (Marie, Bryan and me)from his home in Ohio over to the Appalachian Mountains.see some pics:


Blowing Rock. here i come..


Our well appreciated roadcaptain Bill- No Name Man
(aka-Clint Eastwood)
After my about 8000 miles trip, he named it:
you have now seen more of this country than most of the americans..i guess hes right,and he was responsible for what we have seen. Thank you for a safe trip, Bill.


Here is a group pic of the gang at the Blue ridge parkinglot.


Jim, Bill, Gordons son Alex? and his buddy


Gas and food stop at the Shady valley country store.
great place at the 489 courves snake road.


time to fill up, bellys and tanks



..and fool around a bit..



well.. and it was time to check the bikes from time to time.
at the last gas-stop of our 200 miles tour, we recognized the missing rear axle nuts on Bryans Triumph, which he borrowed from Ben..The rear wheel was hold just in place of the chain tensioners...not good!
the pic shows him, try to steel the missing nuts from another bike, which was brok down with an electrical fault..
but he didnt dare to go on, with all the spectators around..




and here we give Gordon an applause for the great job he did again.
and for myself, i must say: Gordon, thanks a lot. It was great to be part of this wonderfull ride with some great guys. Everybody was experianced and felt responsible for others.
Especially of course, that we were riding on one of the best motorcycle roads i have been for a long time.

Too much moderation is bad for you.

Glad you got to see this end of the US and some of the roads we have to offer. Looks like you had a fantastic time visiting both coast's and some great people to spend it with.

Was great to meet you Dieter. Truly enjoyed sharing the trip west & the International with you and glad you got to enjoy the unique experience that the TSMR is.

Looking forward to seeing you at an event or 10 grin in Europe in the not too distant future.

Tschuss

Jim

Hi Dieter,

Not sure about this year's International yet... still thinking that one over. Miss C couldn't come along so I'm probably out too. But who knows? Lots to do between now and then.

Hope all is well my friend!
