Figures I traded my long sissy fer stock...no biggie...I stripped the bag off a lawn mower catcher, and had great round steel in it...gonna rig that up fer a temp sissy (using the frame ends, and locking in with tapped, pointed bolts)...should do it...that way I can take it off when done too....

With it all loaded the front is a bit light, CG a bit high, but not too bad. Doesn't take long to learn how to ride with all that stuff, but it is different, close to riding two up I think.

CW-4's Hocking Hills Trip
So I got all packed up and departed on the morning of July 28th around 7am. Wanted to ride in the morning as the temps down here were close to 100.
Road back roads or US Hi-ways for the most part of the trip going North. My first day took me thru Abbyville, AL, US 431 to Columbus, GA, GA 219 to La Grange GA, US 27 to Rome, GA and then cut over Northeast to Cleveland, GA. From there it was US 64 to Ducktown.
Once on US 64 the ride started to pick up in scenery, and it was much cooler temp wise. 64 winds along the Ocoee River and Lake and in the mountains, so there was plenty of nice twisty road there.Following-the-Ocoee-Down-In-Tennessee
From Ducktown I went north on TN Hwy 68. Nice ride there too. Did get a slight shower for about 10 minutes, but found a place that I could pull over and wait it out. Here"s a link for a review on that road. TN-Hwy-68--from-Ducktown-to-Telico-Plains
After reaching Telico Plains, I camped for two nights at Sourwood Camp Ground in the National Forrest. The camp ground was on the Tellico River and was about a 15 mile ride along the river to reach it.
The next day I spent all day riding around, running the Tail of the Dragon, the Cherohala Skyway, The Hellbender 28 and a few other roads.
After leaving the Telico Plains area I headed up to Lebanon, VA camped the night at Hidden Valley Lake, then off again, camping at Grapevine near Phyllis, KY. Then off to find Denny.
Found him, along with Ted and Jack.
Some of the best people you can ride with. Plus they keep you entertained with all the stories they have.
After a nights rest the four of us went off to Hocking Hills and spent a two days riding up in that area.
Denny handed me off to Buddy and we linked up with Jason and Michelle on the 4th of Aug.
We road down to Lucusville, OH where we departed ways. They heading back towards Columbus and me off to find some of my family.
After visiting family I took off and head back home.
Total trip, 2,305 miles or so.....
