Have van, will travel.

A trip up to the good side of Atlanta (mountains) sounds good this weekend. I would also like to tag along if any of you N GA natives are riding Saturday or Sunday

I'm riding up there on Sunday, leaving Cobb county in the morning and taking as many dirt roads that I've found on my way up there.

Plan on starting here --> LINK

And from there . . . about 60 miles of riding . . . anyone is welcome to join but I've recovering from surgery and I won't be going as fast as I'd like to . . . not an excuse, just an explanation so if I'm constantly playing catch up, then that's still better than being stuck at home.

I'll be riding at Tibbs, Windy Gap, & Milma trails this weekend. Camping at Lake Conasauga. If the lake campground is full I'll be at the ball grounds sippin' some Tennessee. -Sully

Doesn't really matter to me but either 10:00, 10:30, or 11:00 would be my preference

My dear DOG friends....
I need some help over in the North American Tag thread

http://www.advrider.com/forums/showp...postcount=4136

Now I don't care who has the tag, where the tag is, or what the mascot is,

but it did sting a little to read those comments about mine and Land's integrity.

That is all....thank you very much.

I know you probably don't want to fuel the fire anymore, but someone needs to give that guy the 1 finger salute.....

Fido- No one here would question your integrity- odd post by Augidog. Lets see- he can falsely call you out, but he will "make no more comments ,nor will discuss the insident any longer" IQ<80

It reminded me of Lois Lerners actions earlier this week- she thought she could make her proclamation of innocence, and then take the 5th to not answer any questions.... and we know how that stirred the bee's nest.

I suspect that a smack down is in order over on the NA Tagorama

Believe I will join the party as well! I don't really enjoy the 1Hr and 45 minutes of Interstate 85 and GA400 to get from PTC to the Dahlonega area on a 350cc DS, so I just trailer to the public river access park just before Dahlonega and ride from there. So, I vote for 10:30 or even better, the 11AM start. If you are ever looking for a place to leave a trailer, this is a pretty sweet spot. If you are coming up 400 from Atlanta, when you are getting close to Dahlonega and you make the left turn onto 19/60 at the Amoco to head into Dahlonega, almost immediately you will see the access area to park. Only drawback is they close the gates at dusk, but that isn't an issue this time of the year.
