12/19 Ninja Foothills Ride

Since the temps were going to be in the 50s around the North Carolina Foothills north of Lenoir and south of Wilkesboro, decided to take the Ninja for a foothill twisty ride. Had lots of Carolina Blue on hand for the ride and great road conditions.

This was a new road find for me, south of Wilkesboro and another nice twisty



Took this shot while sitting on the Ninja on a fine twisty road



Great place to eat at Rutherford College



Took this shot of Lake Norman on the way home

Lucas,

Good to hear you guys are out riding, too!

Bought some of the "Freeze-Out" cold weather gear from Cycle Gear and staying warm wearing it under my regular riding gear.

Here are some photos from a 12/13 Dual Sport ride at Mortimer, Wilson Creek, and Pineola NC:

HEHE thats funny you say the Diamond back, I actually done an analytical report on the DB and a few other roads around there for school just recently. I've been there once and had a blast. I "Hope" The rally is@ The dragon again and we can ride a few more roads.
