Had a blast! Thanks to Doc for organizing, and Kevin & Stephanie for leading. Can't wait for the next one! And thanks a lot for the BirdStrike award It's proudly displayed in my office for all to see. I hope I never have to pass it on, and it's not because I love it and want to keep it forever ...

It may have been fortunate that we didn't run the Tazewell route. I mentioned that it contains a couple of new-to-me roads; I took the long way home from Little Switzerland and rode most of the AM portion of the route, which included 2 road closures and 3 gravel roads. If anyone plans on using that route, just stay on Hwy 194 from Boone to Lansing (skip the Castle Ford Rd and Buck Mountain Rd sections between Boone and West Jefferson). The Big Horse Creek Rd section between Lansing and US 58 includes 1/2 mile of gravel when you turn onto Whenlin Ridge Rd, but it's in very good shape. If you don't want any gravel, stay on Hwy 194 in Lansing, bypassing Big Horse Creek Rd. 194 becomes Rugby Rd at the VA state line; turn left (west) on US 58 to rejoin the route.

The PM route back to Little Switzerland is fine.

4th July- Memphomanic, Jay, GaryCulb, Seneker, JR3 & Amy and bird & Stephanie headed out up to the Snake and had a >300 mile day. Lunch was at the Boondocks Brewing in West Jefferson. Cloudy with rain in the night so, fireworks were hard to see.



5th July- Everyone except Scoop & Dwarak took off after Roadmap (Glenn Wheeler) arrived. Gabe joined us at the first gas top. Lunch was at Scott’s Farm Market in Unicoi, TN. No rain all day. Went back early to ride up & down Roan Mountain with Dwarak.





6th July- Everyone took off and we had Lunch at the Stack House in Mars Hill, NC. My GPS mount broke just before lunch so I headed back to the SIT. alstrickland55 & Jan got back & their rear tire was toast.



7th July- Memphomanic received the “Bird Strike Award” for the turkey he took out on his brand new BMW R1250GS.
Yes, qbird66 won this award at the 2019 TTD.
Rules require the fowl be at least as big as a full grown wild turkey to qualify.





JR3 & Amy put altrickland55 & Jan's bike on their trailer, Al road Jims GT and they took off to Blairseville, GA

Everyone then departed.



I did not put the routes/ roads because after the 1,000th turn/ twisty on the second day I just did not care anymore.


Kevin (qbird66) did a fantastic job
Leading the rides, Making the Routes & Determining the Lunch Stops.


Great too see & ride with everyone.

Thanks for participating.

Best,

Doc
