Having lived thru one destructive hurricane and "teased" by many others. You learn many things. Have a prep plan. Have an evacuation plan. Watch the weather. Pay attention to the watermen. Heed warnings. Execute accordingly.
Most importantly, people are more valuable then stuff!

No matter what you ride. Just ride!

For sure keeping an eye on this monster! I have family with a house in Folly Beach, SC. I have a son on vc with his family in the Outer Banks. Hoping we get a strong cold front out of the northeast that will keep this thing from hitting land. Not that I am in a hurry for colder weather to get here but we could use some cold weather soon to push this thing back out to sea!

Be seen and be heard! Bright lights and loud pipes!

Enjoy the ride

My bikes are on high ground & so are my cars. Have plenty of beer, liquor, & food. Gas for the chainsaw if needed. Stuff that could blow around is put away or tied down

Will update with either pictures during or after the storm.

My son and his family got evacuated from the Outer Banks on Tuesday. Continuing their vacation inland in NC. Brother in law is hunkered down at a hotel inland close to Charleston, SC. His house at Folly Beach has been sandbagged so hopefully the Ocean stays in its banks...The river does not flood and his house will be spared.

It's forecast to be sitting right over Newfoundland by Sunday... should make for an interesting day or two in our neck of the woods! Last bad one that came through here was Igor in 2010.
