My quest to find new dirt roads continues. SE Fayette county and into western Walker. 



Sometimes those little side roads that don't look like much have some cool stuff. Like an old iron bridge across the Sipsey River.





Those rain soaked runners were slick!




Coal county. The dark colored roads are a clue.






Another old iron bridge.




Hen turkey somewhere outside of Corona.






I hope this refers to the wildlife and not the hunters!




Not coal country! Proper red clay.




Fowlers Crossroads.




Old mill pond




You can barely see parts of the old mill.




Coastal Plain views always look better in person.

Got out and enjoyed this beautiful weather today.  @BKStewart took me on a tour around Guntersville.

First stop was Thompson Falls:

Today I rode with a group of riders from the Alabama Dual Sport Riders page on Facebook. I hadn't met any of them before (except for our very own Kyle who showed up), and it turned out to be a great group and an awesome day of riding.

We rode 600-2 and 600-1 in Talladega Nat'l Forest.

We had a mother/daughter combo show up...mom was on a BMW parallel twin, daughter was on a CRF70. They swapped out for a few minutes, and Chasity did great on the big bike.

The ride to get the tag at Boshell's Mill got my dirt to pavement percentage skewed the wrong way. I'm also convinced that highway riding is much colder that dirt roads , even at the same speed!

Eldridge, the acoustics inside were really nice! It reminded me I need to repack my muffler.




Boshell's mill, If it was in Pigeon Forge it would be a tourist attraction.










I'm puzzled by this. Who dumps cross ties in the middle of nowhere? Some of which still look to be pretty solid. And why hasn't some good ole boy reclaimed them? I think they sale for about $8 a piece. There were 2 more piles behind these that you can't see in the photo.

He pulled up at the end just as I was snapping that last pic. Older gentleman...seemed nice enough. Asked, "Out for a ride?", then we talked about the weather, kids and dopers trespassing on the property, and the road maintenance (or lack thereof) on Porter Rd.

The fella I keep getting is  around 30 or so and fits the profile of someone living in his moms basement all of his life.  Before  porter road was closed from shady grove rd over to the fork at short creek it was in about in the same shape, and matter management/sylvan springs was able to get the road vacated mainly because of the shape it was in . I've heard they aren't maintaing short creek from parsons to the church on the other end on porter because land owners are wanting the road vacated

Mostly road riding on the KLR up US411, from Moody to Weiss Lake. A few photos along the way. The  mercury said it was 65 degrees, but I was cold all day. I should’ve kept on riding over to Rome, but I turned around just north of Leesburg.

A riverside park in downtown Gadsden, complete with seagulls.


Obligatory Obelisk photo.


Creekside opportunity back in the neighborhood.
