Mark at Hyperformance in Woodstock. Great work, fair prices. His feedback on Georgiaoffroad.com is all positive.

Weird. I hadn't heard that. I'm sure Mark is still doing business, I just wonder if he got tired of paying rent. I'd still call him anyway.

That's what I recall--still in business and just without the storefront.

David at The Ride Shop Woodstock/Town lake
Great work and more options than HyperPerformance. I'm sure Mark is still doing work somewhere, but I love the service and prices of David.

If you want the best go Traxion Dynamics. Bring your wallet though.

Working out of his garage now. Not too far from the old shop. Last time I tried his old number still worked. He does awesome work. Made my crf450r ride like a dream!

I thought about that while crossing over the Etowah in Canton.

I've seen Shoal Creek pretty high a few times and have turned around more than once on bikes and even once when in a CJ5 that was sporting 35s. I've seen a Sammy on a spring over and 32s actually float and get pushed to that ridge on the downstream side until it took on enough water to get some traction. The day the Sammy floated, my CJ5 on 35s had water splashing over the door on the current side! Saying that, I have never seen it as bad as today.

I didn't see the actual crossing as Dawson Forest is closed right now but I did see the bridge over Hwy9 and the park was completely inundated. The cornfield is flooded and will probably be ruined. Lots of water for sure!

Global warming,,,,,,,,,,,,,, now global wetting dammit. Georgia now has a monsoon season.
