Phil and Karen efficiently examined my wandering route from HSV to Jasper Highlands the place the High of the Rock Restaurant and Brewery resides 800’ above Kimball, TN [ N35 03.369’ W85 41.262’ ].

My route took us on some biker-friendly roads and several other we’ve by no means visited in my 20-some AlaBeemer Second Saturday Rides-to-Eat because the grand Poobah & journey honcho. We rode about 100 miles in 2.5 hours; the climate was Very Favorable for the seventeenth of August in Alabama. All roads have been paved, however some have been actually outdated and in disrepair. One fascinating and technically difficult part dropped from the North Alabama plateau at 1,440’ down into the Tennessee River valley at ~660’ and it had 11 very tight switchback turns. Not really helpful for any chrome-covered Low Rider V-twins or any newbie motorcyclists! This was alongside Jackson County Rd-39 [ N34 50.106’ W85 58.179’ ] east of Skyline, AL.

To make it much more difficult, the uphill path to the gated neighborhood on the High of the Rock, a modest string of vehicles, vehicles, and BMWs trailed a lumbering cement truck uphill at perhaps 5 mph in Low Gear. My 6-banger was experiencing a extreme overheating state of affairs with hardly any airflow… We have been lastly rewarded with a phenomenal restaurant with plenty of outside seating with a hazy overview of the Tennessee River valley.

So it handed my check for a worthwhile rendezvous location, even when we’ve got to cross a state line. That mentioned, I’ve led two rides north to Tullahoma and one other westward to Corinth, MS so we do prefer to take new gastronomical adventures when potential (google slugburger). TOTR opens at 1000 on Saturdays; I hope we’ll get there simply after 1100 AM if anybody is up for a private Journey to Eat in a automobile or M/C! We name it the 2nd Saturday Journey so test your calendars. On my Arizona Highways calendar, that equates to 9/9/23.

The northern-AlaBeemers will depart the Blue Plate Cafe on Governor’s Drive ~0830 on Saturday, for these contemplating the proposition…
Right here is my GPS export on your consideration.
