This place was awesome... they have little garages to put the bikes in so they stay safe and dry (and yes, it poured that night)
Two bikes fit perfectly!
Later on Kurt and I got hungry, so we went out to get a pizza. Closest place was in Andrews, NC, about 20 miles away. Weather was nice and clear when we left, and then this monster of a nasty storm came up out of nowhere while we were waiting for our pizza. I kid you not, this was one of the most spectacular lightning storms I've probably ever seen in my life... no joke. It started off as all just lightning up in the clouds and didn't look like an actual storm. We got riding back, and it kept getting worse and worse, now the lightning was coming down to the ground. It didn't stop, it was just a constant flashing like a strobe light, and it was blinding us it was so bright. Then it started pouring... HUGE raindrops I could easily see in my headlights. The road started steaming, which definitely didn't help any with our already poor visibility due to the rain and blinding lightning. We finally made it back to the Two Wheel Inn, completely soaked top and bottom, but the pizza held on strong! Phew!
Got up the next morning and it was beautiful outside! Although it would get very hot later on, but pretty cool in the AM. Some of our gear was still wet from the previous nights pizza adventure, so it was like having air conditioning when we first got going, hahah
Everybody else was up and heading out too... I think we were the only sportbikes there
As we made our way back over to the Deals Gap store, we made a stop at the Fontana Dam. This is where the scene from the 1993 movie "The Fugitive" was filmed, where Harrison Ford jumped out of the tunnel and into the water
Pretty sure this was a "Hey hold my beer and watch this!" moment....
