Unless you are going over jelico mountain in the middle of the night, i would suggest you plan a different route around it. There was a slide a few months ago that took out a chunk of the south bound side of I75. Tracy can suggest a better route for you to take around it.

I have a family reunion in Vero Beach around the same time as you are having your bike dyno'd in Minneola.

I'm sure they have plenty of room, if need be. My cousin runs a landscaping business down there.

You'll definitely want to take a different route thru Jellico. It took me close to an hour to go 13 miles.

The SB lanes are completely gone because of this slide. So they have routed to the SB into the NB lanes. Youll want to take exit 160 in Jellico onto 25W and this will bring you out to exit 134 Caryville. Its a scenic route so it will be a break from the slab.

Here some pics of the mtn slide. Notice in the 1st pic, you can see the NB lanes with the semis going by. Thats how big this thing is.

I'll commit that to memory

Hey tracyb,

I've been trying to get my buddy with tire truck interested in SharkWeek.

Trying to pry him away from a couple local ABATE shows.

He usually states being happy doing 3 or 4 tires a day.

I know people always need tires. many on here want the new michelin, which he has.

they are Dings Custom Cycle, Colorado ( outta MT )

right now they're on hiatus in Ohio. their last show in PA was a bust so they're
sitting there stewing, more than likey, maybe if someone other than me sent them an email?

I sat there at Laconia with them blasting my stereo, bringing in customers.

actually brought in customers.

where they are from is more rural than us, so maybe I was just getting on his last nerve.

but this guys an ace mechanic, with a fueled up truck

Cool, that's 6 miles from my house..You guys are more than welcomed to stay here, one of you would have to sleep on the couch or an air mattress and the bikes can go in the garage. If not let me know when your in and we can meet for dinner and a few beers.
