I and my daughter met you at Market Square today. We were ogling your TW when you walked up and we talked about it. Just wanted to give you a shoutout and another thumbs up on wearing full gear. I might have a suggestion on a good place to get those new tires balanced when the time comes.

Sounds good to me, Tanner. Though it isn't entirely accurate, the Demographic Survey Results list only 2 Tennessee TWers. Not accurate because now we know that there are at least three of us, but that's okay. I know that the guy I met (didn't give his name) logs on here at least occasionally because he mentioned the forum to me first. Unless there's another TW forum out there somewhere.



Other than a few vacant lots here in town, I haven't taken my TW offroad or even offpavement yet. My favorite twisty pavement road is Highway 116 from Lake City to Petros. It's very challenging, but unfortunately it's garnered a silly nickname, The Devil's Triangle, which includes Hwys 330 and 62 to form the bottom of the triangle. It's probably only a matter of time before squids and LEOs turn it into a pitiful spectacle like they did with Deals Gap, AKA The Tail of the Dragon.



Anyway, the Hwy 116 area has long been a mecca for ATVs and dirt bikes. Every time I ride that road in a sporty fashion I have to look out for ATVs on the road and I've always wondered how far those gravel roads and dirt tracks go into the hills. I'll probably wait till Spring to find out, but now that I have the means to ride them, it's only a matter of time.



35 miles isn't very far away. Which direction are you from Knoxpatch?

I'm right down in the middle of it in Old North Knoxville, about 1.5 miles from downtown.

I'm also in Tennessee, 10 miles from Kentucky and 45 miles from the Mississippi River, 325 miles from Knoxville.

so pretty much what your saying qwerty is that it'll only cost you about $10.83 in gas to come visit me and ripshod.
2((325 miles / 50 miles/gallon) X $2.70/gallon) = $35.10 round trip.
