Day Three: Markís mini-Dragon, Waterfalls, The Blue Ridge Parkway, Mount Mitchell, and a killer sunset.

Another great thing about touring with someone who is local to the area is they know the road less traveled. Mark knows a ride that is probably better than the Tail of the Dragon. Well at least if you are on a cruiser. The curves sweep a bit more so you can ride a bit harder. Mark and I hit it hard while Rick and George enjoy the scenery. What a rush! Now Iíll be damned if I can remember the road number.

Well anyhow my camera is still pointed high so we need to make a stop so that I can get a little hardware so that it sits above the dash. With that done we are off to the Blue Ridge Parkway and Mount Mitchell. We stop off at another water fall you can walk under that has a fantastic view.







Every now and then Iím a little thick and donít get what people are trying to tell me. Rick mentions his wrist is hurting from trying to keep up. He is hitting the throttle hard. I didnít really think much about it at the time but in retrospect I realize he was asking us to slow down a bit. Sorry about that Rick. A baseball bat works well. Sometimes you just have to pound it in there.












We end our ride at Mount Mitchell and have dinner. As usual, Iím starving Ė these guys just donít eat very much.





After Mt Mitchell we race off to another mountain top for the sunset. Iím getting a little concerned about gas because my gauge is banging on empty. Anyhow we enjoy a fantastic sunset.





After enjoying the sunset, I pretty much coast as much as possible down the mountain hoping to make it to the gas station. Shoot, I was worried about nothing. I still had a half gallon! We wind up the day at the gas station and head back to the hotel room. I hear Rick laughing as I watch video from the days ride -

Nice pics Ron.

It was crazy when I went to RNR and Mark showed up!!
I even asked him, didn't I just see you in Florida!!???

Turns out he travels between there and here...
I had a pretty good guide in Shady and Nator when
I was there, but I'll make sure to put Mark down for
the next time!!

Ride safe my friend!!
