Gorgeous out there today. I don't want to start any controversy like last year but I went out lapped the angel falls section and came back home. Conditions are good for this time of year mostly clear of gravel until out past cherryville. When you're heading up mine hill(the double lanes steep hill just past cherryville) there's some gravel and after that there's bits of gravel here and there and lots on the shoulders still. Most of its been blasted off the corners though. As I was having a bite to eat just before my last pass through the falls the sportbike west group came by so it was fun to ride home with a bunch of sportbikes. Pretty chill group of guys. Closest I've come to a 'group' ride.
