We came off Flatland rd onto pavement into Suches, where we had lunch and talked with several other bikers. Most were riding cruisers, but some had DS bikes as well.
One guy was really glad to meet us. He is about 60 yrs old and said he was worried he couldn't ride for many more yrs, but if we could still ride, he should be good for at least another 20 yrs.
Left Suches on Coopers Gap rd. A good mountain road, but does not meet my “Really Good Road” standards.
This road is just a good mountain road, but with the leaves off the trees, the view was spectacular.
Next road is FR 42 or maybe Appalachian Blue Ridge or both
All I know for certain is it was up on top of a long mountain and followed the ridge line for a long way
This must be a hikers trailhead. There's at least 30 cars here and the people we see are doing stretches & squats & stuff
an most of em look fit,,, like they may walk or do some kind of exercise
There's some nice people in Georgia too. Soon as this one saw us (thru the dust), he pulled over and let us pass
This one is not so nice. Took at least a mile to get around him/her, but to be fair, he/she was puttin up so much dust,
he/she may not have seen us
