    Well over 200 bikes. Weather has held, and really nice event in historic Jonesborough, TN this evening. If you missed this years event, don't know what you could be waiting for? Had people from Montana and Canada sneak in. Incredible roads is what I want! Johnson City has deep in Spades!

    Will post some pics later. Did over 2k and all but the 400 was on twisty 2 lanes over 7 days. 260 people attended and over 200 Vics showed up. Weather held with scattered rain on a few of us, but mostly perfect. Even after hitting a deer and going down, I finished the week riding every day. These events keep the brand alive, and I meet so many new friends every time. Ride on, "til the wheels fall off"

    Story as requested. Pulled out of Waynesboro VA Monday at 6:45 am intending to ride 1/2 the Skyline up and back to Big Meadow before heading down the Blue Ridge Parkway. Saw deer up in the Big Meadow area but not on or near the road. Posted 35 mph and was doing posted to 40 mph. Was 10 mikes from the entrance to BRP at 9:26 when I was entering a gradual right-hand curve. Up ahead I spotted spotted fawn and mama on the side of the road, and down shifted, applied brake and moved toward center line as fawn bolted in front of me. Mama followed and I hit her square in the hind quarter. This snapped off the front fender and wedged it under the front tire sending me into a skid and down into the right ditch. Stepped off and looked for the deer but no sign. Tried to stand up the bike, but wheels were not on the ground so unable to lift. Couple stopped from behind, and another from up the road. Men help ed lift and get on the road while ladies watched for traffic. Bike fired right up. Assessed damage and checked all running gear and controls. Looked ok so I rode down to the next pull off and cleaned off the grass and dirt, collected myself, and headed off to complete the days ride. 465 total miles on the day, 360 after the wreck. Went on to ride VA 16 Back of the Dragon, The Rattler 209, The Snake 421 and countless others in VA, TN and NC over the next 5 days.
