Oh yeah, from Greenbriar just head north, the roads will get good in a few minutes!
On the eighth day God created the C5, and it was better looking than anything on the planet.

Blackwolf, your razorback story reminds me of a near miss I had with a bobcat while riding through the black canyon of the gunnison in Colorado. He came flying down a bluff in front of me, when we got within inches of each other he reversed directions and went back up the mountain, I thought he was going to jump over my bike. I had no place to go, straight up or straight down on either side.

  I met Mr. Pig coming around a bend in the road, he was already investigating some tasty tidbit of road kill and I surprised him.  Can't really say who was more surprised me or him.  Just knew I didn't want to swing that huge Gold Wing around basically in it's own length.  And I guess what was worse was the copious lack of larger motor vehicle traffic.  Guess encounters with wild critters is never good.  Will.

Had a friend, a construction dynamiter, who managed, by arrangement with his boss, to get himself and a couple friends laid off at the beginning of deer hunting season each year.  Kevin is a good guy, isn't he?

Kevin is a great guy. The circumstances were financial, not personal. I would work for him again in a heartbeat. It had to do with Faribo Powersports, not Classic Motorworks, so no worries there.

I wish I could remember the route, but I drove (the co. Car many years ago) from Little Rock to I-35 and North to home. I still remember the part over the mountains as being particularly beautiful.
