Jim Roche, The Bear Hair 100 Mile Time Trial For Open Road Motorcycles, 2008, graphite / color pencil on paper, 33.5 x 34.75 inches.

JR: The Bear Hair is a beauty. This is a route that I run every Sunday when I am up at Buzzard Roost, our Georgia mountain studio. I live on Buzzard Roost Road at the foot of Brasstown Bald. Bear Hair is approximately 100 miles and my best E.T. was 102 miles, twenty-one road changes, and two hours and seven minutes. That sounds like that’s not doing anything, I only averaged forty-seven miles an hour, but, trust me, forty-seven miles an hour on these roads is something! This is where the Tour De Georgia is . . . they took the Tour away from Colorado. Bicyclists, internationally, think this is the best.
