Was it a super clean red 1100GS? With a very sweet sounding exhaust? That'd be the guy who recently bought it off my dad. Still get to see/hear it ridden by in the area quite a bit. Totally blanking on the guy's name, but a very nice guy, who also drives a big red Dodge to match. Wonder if he has found his way to this site yet...

edit: His name is Coby, somethin'...

That was probably me. Tyler doesn't get to go on every ride (although he acts like he's supposed to).

Sorry I missed the salute.

So is the "Harley" up and running again or were you in a cage?

It was you mb. I tried to get your attention, I was in a grey ford f150 sitting at the redlight when you turned onto the bypass at Underwood.

The buell is doing well now. Been riding the the wheels off of it. Got new tires, luggage racks and a tank bag the other day. Just need to locate some aluminium cases to replace the soft luggage and it will be set for some long hauls (not that long FIDO!!).

You need to join us on some of these "street rides" "Mike Honcho" and I have been doing. Last Sat. we did 400+ miles up to Brevard NC, across the BRP to Cherokee, 28 over to Franklin. It was awesome. We had 5 bikes Sat, but often it's just me and him.

He has one planned over into NE AL for next weekend (8/15).

Here's the thread with some pics from the ride at the end. We extended the route on into Brevard then up through the Pigsah Natl Forrest instead of heading north at Rosman to pick up the BRP. 64 east Haysville to Brevard, the Natl Forrest, BRP, and 28 back to Franklin were awesome twisties. Cheokee sucked of course and the slab from here to Murphy is boring, but other than that, great weather and great ride.

05 red R1200 GS - I'm in Alpharetta on Cumming St. (insert inappropriate joke here).

I was on the BRP from Brevard to 441 last Saturday - surprised I didn't see you along the way.

You should just buy it - then I won't have to worry about riding it

Noticed a few GS's throughout the day, but we were probably traveling in the same direction.
