Motorcycling with Yes in My Head

Postby Yessong » Thu Aug 15, 2002 5:50 am

Well, I took the big bike trip to the Blue Ridge Mountains...AND... went to see the boys the night before!

Having a pretty stripped down, loud bike - there's no place for a music system but the concert on the night before left me with a soundtrack to remember for the entire trip.

Our orriginal plan was to ride form NY to N. Carolina and cruise the Blue Ridge Pkwy - through the mountains. Well, we did that and much more, cruising all the way down to Athens Georgia for a day.

The people throughout the South were VERY friendly and nice - even the state troopers we met (ya know 4 bikers with NY plates is gonna get some attention).

The roads are amazing and a bit sick - hair-pin BLIND turns all over the place. I new that if I lost control on any of these turns, at least I got to see the boys one last time before heading to that big concert hall in the sky.

As it turns out - 2 of the guys on the trip work at the radio station that I used to work at and the station threw a going-away party at a local club with Zebra playing live. So, since they (the other guys) didn't get home till 2:30am we didn't leave till the afternoon. So going to the show turned out to be no big deal as far as sleep goes.

Well my wrist still hurts (too much throttle and brake work) - so I'm gonna cut it short here. Besides, I'm still finding bugs in my hair...

Thanks again for all who encouraged me to throw caution to the wind and do both the show and the bike tour.

<font color=red><font face='Papyrus'>Hey, too bad you couldn't ride to the top of Humpback Mountain just outside Waynesboro, Va. A 100 plus mile panoramic vista of the Shenandoah Valley would have greeted you.

Wow, that sounds like a great trip! I'm glad you got to go to the concert and didn't have to leave until the afternoon. It gave you an awesome soundtrack for the road.

What is the most insistent sound of YES that play in your head in this Wonderous bike trip?

Today we bought a 2003 Super Glide. I haven't had a bike in 7 years so I was a little wobbly at first, and as such I was concentrating too much to hear the tunes that are usually present in my head. The Yes tunes will be playing to the thump of a Harley beat soon though!

CONGRATS ON THE NEW BIKE! And remember to "Keep the rubber-side down".

As far as the sound track in my head - it alternated between Siberian Khatru and, since I got the Box Set just before I left - the unreleased track - "Richard"
