    Nah, those guys up in the air have these new-fangled devices called "radios". They use them to talk to other cops that are already on the ground, hopefully ahead of Norm, to warn them that he is on the way.

    I'd sure like to explore that area someday, Norm. Sounds like a great ride.

    Were you on the FJR? Which Michelins did you put on? I just put Road 5's on mine, but they haven't seen any rain yet.

    Yes Roger, I was riding the FJR. I've been riding on Michelin PR4'S for awhile now, I think this is my 4th or 5th set. It really is a beautiful part of our country. So many twisty roads and elevation changes I was getting Sea Sick! 😃

    16 Yamaha FJR1300 (Probably been to a town near you)

    Glad you had a great ride.

    When consulting the magic 8 ball for advice, one must first ask it "will your answers be accurate?"

    What a beautiful Labor Day Weekend ��
    Stormin' Norman! Geesh it's been at least 5 or 6 years since I rode with you on a Labor Day weekend!

    Tazewell, Tennessee? I went through Tazewell, VIRGINIA Friday and Saturday! Is there a TN city of the same name, or are we talking about the same place just north of that ripping triple mountain pass stretch on Route 16 known at the Back of the Dragon?
