We took our first trip up to the Blue Ridge Mountains this year last weekend. Was also Lisa's first long trip riding her own bike. She did great. We took it pretty easy, no draggin' the pegs off or drag racing, etc. Did a little over 500 miles. Stopped at Station's Inn for a midday beer on Sunday afternoon. [A motorcycle bar and grill in Laurel Springs, N.C., just off the parkway.] Man, that place was jumpin'. Must have been 200 bikes there, mostly Hardleys, of course. Only other Triumph there was a Tiger, about 2002 vintage. A band was doing a decent job cranking out Stevie Ray tunes. [My favorite!] Here is a couple pics of the parking lot across the street. Can you spot the Rocket?
