Draik is an amazing kid that has the hearts of our members here at ETB. Chasing his dream of racing this year he has stepped up to the Ninja250 and is starting out this season pulling off some amazing podium Finishes. Given we are no business with cash flow and just a member supported group. We do what we can to help Draik further his dreams. Keep up with his race season on our track addicts board. His Father Kurt (R6boater) keeps us up to date with his current races and achievements. And also some really sweet Go-Pro footage. Also make plans to attend our swap meet/fundraiser Sunday May 5th. Any help with this event would be greatly appreciated. Check out the thread in upcoming events. Here is one of his latest videos....

I have an extra helmet that I need to get rid of to free up closet space. It's a Bieffe, DOT & Snell approved, size XXL. It has an interchangeable visor and comes with the extra tinted visor. No warranties or anything just a free helmet. Has some surface scuffs but never been crashed.

Ran a couple new roads getting to Tellico Plains from Vonore, TN. One new one was neat and got on it by accident when I missed a LEFT turn because I was taking a picture of a neat church. The GPS then turned me RIGHT just passed the church. I thought this is strange, I thought I would be heading the other direction (LEFT). Anyway, I kept going and finally realized the GPS was looping me back to the church for the LEFT turn I missed.

Sometimes things work for the best, the loop was a neat little new road I had not been on and took me back to Ballplay Rd which I had just been on. That was when I realized what happened and it was confirmed when I came to the church AGAIN.  Shocked

Ride was longer than anticipated at 195 miles House to House and it was 3PM when I got back. I reckon too many stops (left at 7:30AM, some healthy BKF at home and an unhealthy one at Vonore HARDEE'S, a stop on Cherohala at the parking lot (22 mile marker) where there is a trail to a waterfalls (Citico Creek Wilderness area). Stop at MC Friendly EXXON in TP (pictures of maps), stop at Museum on way back thru town to see Ken, stop for Ice Cream at Jct Hwy 129/363. I am getting to be a regular Stop Ride vs Mostly Just Ride.  

I did not hike the trail to the waterfall, but did walk to where the trails split (two numbered trails) and had a few healthy snacks and a kind of nap in the shade on the rock wall. :-) Probably spent 30 minutes there.

I hope to make the hike someday when someone will go along. Maybe Ken will Hike it with me. I heard from the guy that had the Outfitter Shop in TP that part of it is steep and that there have been bear problems in that area (this was a year or two ago). Not sure I am up to the hike, but would like to try it.  

A couple of Honest to Goodness real Farmers Markets (on their farms) at end of Blockhouse Rd (first two pictures). Going strong now thru the fall, might be time to make a short day ride and go by there.

Steam Engine reported to be 1907 or 1908 Model by owner. I saw it on a new road getting from Blockhouse to Hwy 411, turned around and went back for a picture.    

GPS and a few following pictures were what I thought was a new road - then realized Jackie and I had rode it some time ago. A neat little crooked rascal (one problem is too many houses on part of it).

Several pictures after the church are of the road I got on when I missed the LEFT turn right before the church. The GPS turned me RIGHT past the church and looped me back and I made the LEFT turn. So, some pictures are of the road after the LEFT turn (can't rememebr which is which  - both fun roads).
