Especially when you're lifting while slipping on the ice....Anyway the 'o' 1190 is not so pretty of a gurl anymore.
Shite Chris, sorry to hear that but it was bound to happen.

I'm coming from McDonough (South), so I'm thinking Rome would be out of the way. I may just meet you all at the "stone church across from the red gas station on 411 at Cisco" Just got figure out where this is..

I don't know about you guys but I'm overdue for beer & wings someplace for a bike night. (I tore down the 690 last weekend to adjust the TPS so I'll hopefully be back on 2 wheels in a few days )
Sounds like a plan, when should we do this.

Cool. If you map Cisco, GA look where Old GA Hwy 2 comes in. You'll hang a right and the church is right there.

Any of you riding in a big group Sunday afternoon on FSR28B? I was solo and passed a large group stopped at the Ranger base.

FSR77 was close for the controlled burn but still enough roads open to have some good riding.

Thanks, I believe I found it on Google. It's on the North/East corner of 411 and Old Hwy 2 and the Red gas station looks like it across this intersection on the South/west side.

We're meeting there at 11:00 AM, correct? If so, this will be good because according to Google it's 125 miles away taking 2 hours 15 minutes.

Seen it, it now has a new tank and R80gs headlight/fairing and looks even better. It is out at Boxerworks in Watkinsville.

If I finish off the bike this weekend then I'm up for anything. If you want to meet @ Twains in Decatur I'll buy.

I'll post up here when I get everything buttoned back up. Need to get ready for the Spring Nutz in a couple of weeks!

Sounds like a plan. Let me know.

Tomorrow I'll be tearing apart my bike to install heated grips, removing the charcol canister, installing a radiator guard and an Unifilter.
