Trip to Pisgah National Forest to Ride the Mountain Roads

Post by Jesse »

April 23-25 Trip to Pisgah National Forest to Ride the Mountain Roads, a late Bday gift from my son to me.
Shelby rented a cabin at Pilot Cove for three days, we towed the motorcycles there.
I was riding my 2014 Honda CB1100 and Shelby was riding his 2016 Triumph Thruxton R 1200
Friday evening we had a short 26 mile ride on Route 276 and part of the Blue Ridge Parkway

Sounds like an excellent respite after all this lockdown, Jesse?

This looks like a great time for both of you. Great! And the two red bikes are pretty cool, I like this style.

Beautiful area, beautiful bike run. If you ever are up in this area-I live in a community that exits/enters Rt. 739 in NE PA-a famous bike run due to its scenic nature and that it crosses the Delaware river-beautiful run down rt. 209 along the Delaware to the Delaware water gap south from 739-can go clear up to Scranton and Rt.81 beyond due north and west which will take you right into Virginia and clear down to Louisiana-I've never taken that run, but there is alot of beautiful countryside biker routes right near 739 which can get you to historic Honesdale-a big Harley store is there as are several little restaurant stops frequented by riding clubs from all over the East. Honesdale-birth of the steam locomotive and the source for the song "Winter Wonderland". Driving around here, I can believe it!

I sold my CB1100 Friday, I will miss it but it has a good home with a collector, he also has a
2008 Shelby Cobra GT Convertible Mustang
2012 Shelby Cobra GT Mustang
Both built while Carol Shelby was still alive and before they started making changes to suspension and other areas.
He also used to own and race one of the original Shelby Cobra's.
Quite an interesting person.
