119: Jon has an Iron Butt

Tonight Rich and Rico get the latest news from Jon on his past weekend trip with the Moto Amino Dragon Krew.  Jon took a little adventure and rode down to Key West, Florida.  On the ride down the plan was to complete the saddle sore 1000 Iron Butt Challenge.  This challenge is to complete 1000 miles in 24 hours or less.  There was a small delay in getting out of North Carolina as DaRula's chain broke while running about 70 mph on I-85 just south of Charlotte, NC. To answer the question - yes everyone doing the saddle sore did complete it, in fact they did 1119 miles in 22 1/4 hours!

After arriving at the hotel at 1:30 AM - back on the road by 9:30 AM to finish the ride to Key West, FL.  Did a little sightseeing and then headed back north and planning to stay at OIFVET22's house south west of Jacksonville, FL.  Before getting back to the mainland of Florida, Jon followed a recommendation from brother Zyon to stop for dinner at Hobo Cafe in Key Largo, FL.  Highly recommend the place if you are in the area.

The Dragon Krew didn't arrive until 5 AM.  After a little sleep and home cooked meal they were back on the road around 12:30 pm and Irish's brother-in-law escorted the Krew out of state.  Jon arrives home around 11:30 pm, but there was a small adventure with an NC state trooper.

50: Biker Roundtable - Road Hogs III - Moto Vloggers in Tellico Plains - JR Cigar

We celebrated a little by recording episode 50 live at JR Cigar in Mooresville, NC and hosted our second Biker Roundtable.  Thanks to those that joined us on the live stream and chat.  We plan to do more live streaming on a regular basis, so check out LouPipes.net/live for more details.  

Bikers Roundtable

A group of Moto-Vloggers (listed below) made a return trip to Tellico Plains, TN.  Check out the guys below for all the video from the adventure.

Some great roads were ridden while on this trip including; Tail of The Dragon, Cherohala Skyway,  and The Hellbender 28 (Part of Moonshiner).  These roads are ranked in top 4 of best routes in North Carolina per motorcycleroads.com.  The crew again stayed in Tellico Plains, TN at Hunts Lodge which is a great place for motorcycle rider.   The owner of the campground had a Manga V-65 so Matthew Williams had a nice chat with her.  

On the way back from the mountains Matthew and Jon made a pit stop at JR Cigar to be part of the live show.  This was so far Jon's longest ride on the spyder and did little over 900 miles for the weekend.  He really enjoyed getting out and riding and found that traveling the interstates is not very exciting.  Now he see why Rich and Rico like the back roads so much. 

Jon getting it done on the Tail of the Dragon!
