I ride every day to work, unless the weather is just so God awful that I have to take the car.

    FINALLY rode my baby yesterday! I got her back from the dealership from her 8K service check. Hurricane, ordered parts so yeah dropped her off on August 18 and got her back September 23 so 5 weeks. I left the dealership and did a 4hr loop in the neighboring city on the back roads. The weather was perfect. 80F, no clouds, small breeze, barely any traffic. Ate at favorite Mexican restaurant in that town then took off and it was a great day to ride. I had a 7 day trip to Lake Sam Rayburn around  Broaddus, TX. I was going to bring my motorcycle but my employer cancelled my vacation because I was still at the fire station recovering the city from a direct hit from Ida. So I can't wait until Oct 10-22. I have 4 days in a hotel in Kodak, TN, then 4 days in a cabin in Bryson City, NC, then 4 days in a cabin in Lake Winfield Scott recreation park in Suches, GA. Bringing my motorcycle on a rented Uhaul moto trailer until I can buy a light Toy Hauler. I CANT WAIT!

    Washed my baby at noon then rode to New Orleans to get some pizza and met a friend but he had to work on cleaning pools so he only had time to stop by and say hey for a few minutes. So I ate, drank  3 beers relaxed and rode back home. Put on about 135 miles on her and got back home and now about to relax and work in the morning. The weather was perfect, 80F, no clouds, barely a breeze, light traffic except in a few spots but no biggy.

      Thanks so much ROADKILL. I have your site in my favorites and will make a few loops using your maps. I saw you posted that site here earlier so I will definitely us it to make some routes and store it in my cell phone mounted to my handle bars so even if I lose internet the route will be downloaded to my cell. Any recommendations? I was planning on doing a few loops

      Here is another good motorcycle map site for the Smokey's  https://mysmokymountainguide.com/eleven-popular-motorcycle-rides-in-the-smoky-mountains/
