I am back! More TOD updates after a quick recovery…I promise*

Friday, September 18, 2009

2,440-miles on a scooter in seven days will make not just some spongy buttermilk pancakes, but absolutely thin French crêpes out of an average man’s average buttocks.  Not having a terminal with Wi-Fi out in the hills of Tennessee also means that you’re most-likely disconnected from the rest of the world (which could be a good thing in many ways) especially considering that I was on a vacation.  So please, give me a minute, watch this short video of my wet slide down the TOD (4 minutes but took over three hours just to load), and I shall have more to report after my body is well-rested and my brain is up-to-speed.  Where is Ed, btw?  Please wish him safe on the roads.–Lorenzo

* Future updates of the Tail of the Dragon trip will be posted chronologically as they occurred.

      Thanks, Jeff! It feels good to get off the saddle a bit.
      You would understand. 🙂

    We trailered our scooters to the Smokey Mountains this summer. It was raining very hard the day we were going to ride to the TOD, so we didn’t get to do it. Plan to go back one day and do it though.

      Yeah, somehow the video seems to downplay the actual speed a bit. But I really tried hard at not flying off that slippery road and become yet another statistic.
      If you enjoy riding crooked roads, you should at least try riding the Dragon at least once!

    Glad you made it back safe. Looking forward to riding a “local ride” when you are up to it.

    What a trip. One I know you will always remember and you did ride it like you stoled it.

      Thanks, Bruce! That’s because I remembered what you’ve said.
      More TOD to come in a bit.
