Dean, i'll second the Nimblewill suggestion. You can also stop by REI & pick up the Nat Geo map (#777, link) that has them all listed along with the roads.

Jeff

PS: call ahead. I bought mine there years ago & assume they still carry em.

I was all over Jasper, Ellijay, Cartecay, etc. today and say a bunch of nice bikes - figured some had to be inmates. On 515 I saw a new Super Tenere, couple of nice GSs, and a white V-Strom. This evening coming back down 515 we saw a couple on two bikes with Quebec tags (Guzzi and a Shadow).

I was solo half the day and had my wife the latter half - both of us in hi viz jackets on the Strom. If it was any of y'all that we saw, "Hello" from both of us. It was an awesome day to be out riding.

No, that's ok, I see stuff all the time while riding and think "Oh that would suck to land on / hit...ect.
I saw abunch of stuff the first time I rode around MotoMtn..trees cut down low 2/3s of the way thru and a good "2'-3' Sword" left sticking up where it broke off sharp as it fell.

The bike took the spike
Sometimes you wish your bike was softer when you land on it or it lands on you but sometimes you are glad it is hard when it hits a spike instead of you!

Looks like I may be needing a new corporate home.

Any DOGS in the know of some good positions within driving of Woodstock?
I work in the Financial world now, but have lots of Management and Sales experience. Awesome timing
