It was a great day man and a blast at that. Go make a weekend out of it and have a great time.

Couple of us bout went down in one curve though because something slick on the road. Heard locals were trying to pull oil and gas around some of the curves but idk if true.

Can you say chicken strips? Hahah just messin with you bro it's good to ride in your comfort zone. Especially there. But I highly doubt the locals were trying to mess with the road. They put more work into taking care of that road then the TN highway Dept. ever could. I see them out there gettin rocks and tree limbs off the road everytime I go.

That would be absolutely terrifying if its true. Plus if someone got hurt, that would almost be considered premeditated murder.

Glad no one got hurt. Looks like a fun ride. I will get there eventually.

As far as the chicken strips, my tires dont have any, but killboy and them wasn't really in that great spots for pictures this weekend. The road absolutely tore my tires all to pieces I have some pictures of my buddies bike and my tires on my camera phone i'll post up if you think you can find my "Chicken Strips" lol.

As far as the jeans and shoes. I know i'm in the process of buying some boots but it is kindof hard to purchase them on looks with money issues. But they are the next thing to come.

most big name brands of boots usually fit good. it's not like buying a helmet where the fit is the most important part.

there is a place in ohio (columbus) called iron pony that has a lot of gear in stock you can try on for fit.
might make a good weekend thing to go do in the winter.

Lol I was just playing with you about the strips bro. The photogs are rarely in real good corners. I guess maybe because the cops like to sit on those.

Man... You're crazy riding the dragon in jeans and tennis shoes...

I refused to go until I had boots gauntlet gloves and a suit... That road is so much fun but it's soooo dangerous. Glad you had a good time though and kept it rubber side down.

Edit... Your tires don't look that bad, if the edges start really balling up on you next time lower your tire pressure a couple of pounds and it will clean right up.
