Not much to report today. We are in Poplar Bluff for the night. We are a bit behind the heat wave and want to keep it that way.
Took as many small roads as practiable. Fun ride but gets tiring.

We headed for the Smokey Mountains, specifically for the Tail of the Dragon and Cherohala Skyway.
We had so many twisted turns for hours on end. It was kind of overwhelming.
Because it is a weekend, during Fall with no rain an very good temperature
there were hundreds of motorcycle all over the mountain. Sport cars racing too.
The very next pic is the spot map with my trip .

That tree of shame has grown a lot since I was there last.

We did over 500 miles in one day to escape future rain.
Had about 10 days on the road. Generally speaking it was in the hot side.

I enjoy being on the road with my wife. She's very organized and we had all thats needed to be riding for very long period of time.
Did the laundry in two occasions.

We are very pleased with our helmets. It took a day or two to brake them in . I love the modular system and the shades that you drop with a slide of a button. Very easy to drink with the helmet on.
We carry two thermoses in the holders so we have a cold drink till its finished then we refill from the cooler bag.

Happy with the corded intercom system, especially yesterday with about 9 hrs of usage.
The bike ran great, as expected with 2 or 3 things that need attention which I will post in the technical forum.
I need a new front tire.
This concludes this trip. I will post one more pic from the Tail of the Dragon when Killboy makes it available.
Thank you for your interest in this thread
