Took a ride by TWO today...

Myself, Dirty South, and Dante took a lovely jaunt throught the woods today. Went from Nimblewill Gap/ Amicalola Falls towards Suches. Met a good group of guys (on a new WeeStrom, Dr650, and DRZ 400) and chatted, then headed to TWO for lunch, only there were about 120 bikes there. I'd say business is good! Met another older local who showed us some amazing dirt roads. Had a blast. I think the guy we saw wipe out on his goldwing near Cooper Creek sorta shook us up for a minute, but he ended up being ok, except his pride. Sorry I don't have more than 2 pics, but you can see how busy the gas station across from TWO was today. The other shot was taken right before 2 apache helicopters dusted by in the valley next to us, at a level lower than us. Pretty sweet day.

Got the # now. I will surely hit you up next ride. This was kinda last minute so we didn't really plan anything. We had a blast though, the old guy showed us some sweet roads. Dirty has the route on his happennin' new GPS so we are planning on hitting it again for sure.

Man, I always wanted to try kayaking. That junk looks like a blast. Unfortunately I only have time for one hobby right now. Paddling looks sweet though that is for sure. Maybe if I hitch the kayak onto some sort of wheels I can tow it behind the KLX to the campsite. Hmmm....

Last minute works for me If the wife doesn't have plans I can't get out of. I would love to see some new stuff. Maybe the old timers know some roads or trails that I don't. Anyway give me a shout when your going to head out I can be in dawsonville in about 1 hour 15 minutes.

Hey norton, know anybody that might be interested in a Mohawk Viper 12 for . . . . . . . a good price? It's outfitted, but needs some TLC - hasn't been paddled in a few seasons.

I'll ask around, I know a guy that recently trashed his and might be looking for another.
Got one of those myself
When it's easy water, I'll often paddle the Viper instead of the kayak(WS Godzilla)
