Last week, on an annual family trip to Crossville TN, I had the opportunity to meet-up with Longroof from the TW200 Forum.
What a great story teller! I first read his account of a trip 'out east' to Halifax, Nova Scotia, Cape Breton and the Cabot Trail. It's called, DesTination: My Epic Ride on a Yamaha TW200.
A very enjoyable read which can be found here: http://tw200forum.com/forum/trails-off-road-adventure-riding/14532-my-epic-ride-2014-longroof.html, and here: http://acorbinsayswhat.blogspot.ca/2015/06/destination-my-epic-ride-on-yamaha.html.
Had a great time; three hours passed all too quickly, but look forward to the next time. Photos to be attached; patience please - first post in forum; hope all goes well...
Cheers!

Photos show: Longroof in his busy garage, the story teller in-action, Run'dover astride Longroof's ride: a highly modified TW complete with Craig Vetter bags(!), swapping stories over a side-hack'd Stella, and testing the very loud horns of Longroof's TW!

Longroof was the very first forum member I had the privilege of actually meeting! I met him during his epic ride of 2014 and actually got to ride a few miles with him when he came through my area. Very nice guy who I wish I could have spent much more time with. I know I will see him again some day and hope to make the moment last a little longer. Nice first picture post.

Glad you stopped by! My brother Randy, Debbie and I had a great visit with you too. Always enjoy discussing travel on two wheels. Got the 2005 Pontiac Aztek going (red vehicle in first photo). Put 180+ miles on it today driving to Knoxville. Upcoming bicycle (the green bicycle in one of your photos) tour in southwestern Ohio week of April 25. Then another tour in Texas week of May 8. I'll need the Aztek to get to these destinations.

Still planning on retirement May 6. Lots of motorized two wheel (and three) travel planned beginning in June. Another wine tour on the Natchez Trace with the scooter and a V Star trip out west and British Columbia and?
