Spotted a Black Yamaha Super Tenere rider coming off Little Mill Rd. onto Hwy. 20 in the Lathemtown area of Cherokee Co. Wanting to know if this was local a DOG in my area?

Don't think it was me (don't park on sidewalks and more of a Kroger kind of a guy).
I'm in that part of town a lot, but there's a few Blue KLRs around.
Mine...


I see a '08 Blue KLR with Factory soft bags on Peachtree Parkway in the Norcross/Tech Park area a lot. Anyone on here?

Dig the color--very old school.

Passed this guy coming the other way last summer on 28 as we were ripping up the hill to Highlands, NC. He turned around and caught us as we were dismounting the bikes. He was some sorta Kalifornia Silly Cone Valley IT millionaire type who seemed very impressed with himself and his accomplishments. Definitely left on impression on us. His GS was low on oil and he wanted to know if we had any.:loll

Just wanted to introduce myself! Grew up riding dirtbikes and all that, and been on my vstrom for about a year and a half now.. I've found some good trails around from lurking, but figured it would be more fun to ride with some of you fellas!

So yea, if you pass a yellow weestrom in Buford, or anywhere really with some punk ass kid on it, it's me..

Well, if I'm not mistaken, it looks like you managed to find Duncan Ridge.

Welcome. Hope to meet you sometime.

60 to 180, take 180 to the top of the Mtn. Take a left on the FS road and have fun. It's not as rocky as from Tray mtn. from the AT to where you took the pics at. Have fun, and glad to have another rider in the area.

Yesterday 5pm ish ~
Saw a DR 650? Black, with panniers. Black motorcross helmet and black gear. Heading towards downtown Cleveland, Ga on 115.


Also saw a MotoGuzzi and Dacuti at the ChikFil A in Dahlonega, Ga. Talked to those guys. Of course they weren't ADV'rs, but you never know!

Sightings in Dahlonega during Lunch today

Saw three dual sport bikes at The Wagon Wheel restaurant. Looked like a Honda CRF250L, Yamaha WR250R, & another DS.

Then I saw several bikes huddled in front of Caruso's / Fudge place in downtown Dahlonega. Caught my eye because there were at least two newer model KTM 990s.

Any of you guys/gals? SR

..... now that I think about it, the Honda and Yamaha may belong to BlueLightning and his lovely wife, Sara.
