Another chance with Blue Goodson

Blue is heading up a ride Saturday - meeting at Subway/gas station on US64 near 411. Gonna ride the loop in Cohutta ( few hours - forest service roads.) Meeting at 10am - all are welcome to join. (Blue is a 6'5 legend riding a Honda 650 with some funky tall mirrors - looks like a bug!)

Saturday is gonna be a beautiful day, weather-wise. I was planning to ride anyway, so I'll probably see you there. Thanks for the info.

Forecast is looking good.
Im in...I'll be on the big red pig. Probably last ride on that D606 rear tire.

Doulos, you going sissy? (Hauling up with bike in your truck bed.) Or, riding up?

Interested in ride but living south makes the meeting point tough.

Any ideas

Ride your motorcycle up there! It's not far from Calhoun to the rendezvous point.

ride saturday

Plenty of parking options. All kinds of pull offs on hwy 64 next to lake Ocoee, Gas station/Subway has space too.

I am hoping to come - working out a schedule conflict.

Happy Holidays

Hey y'all ( or is the plural all y'all? ),

Seasons greetings from the land of blue crabs and lack of government oversight. Hope everyone is safe and happy.

Hopefully this year will see me un-ass my job and we can buy us a little hunk of Signal Mountain.

At the very least, we will be taking another trip down to ride around and eat large amounts of Bavarian nachos.

Hey Doulos!

I'll meet y'all there, at 10 although I'll be taking a different loop. It'll be nice to see you guys.
Hey Pig! Hope the wife is well :)

The wife and I will probably be there just to say "hey". We'll be 2-up and don't want to hold you guys up so we may peel off and do our own thing after we get going.

Squirrely - If that's why you are planning on doing a different loop you are welcome to join us.

Doulos - I know of a McDonalds and a Hardees at the intersection of 64 & 411 but I don't remember a Subway. I can't find it on Google Maps street view either. It probably doesn't matter. You guys should be easy to spot.

Correct. There is no Subway at that intersection. Its about 3 miles east of that intersection on 64.
Its part of a gas station. I just talked to Doulos and he said that's where he said he would meet.

I'll be at the Subway/Gas station at 10.

Great turnout for the ride today. 13 bikes met at the store, 11 rode the Cohutta's. Michele and I ran into rain shortly after leaving the group at the Jack's River bridge and it rained on us all the way home.

It was great to see everyone. Hope you guys had a good ride after we left and I hope everybody managed to stay dry.

BTW - The weather man is a big fat liar.

After Twisty left, we rode the Big Frog Rd loop.
At the end of that road, we all stopped.
Ideally, we wanted to tour northern sections beyond the Olympic White Water areas, then exit in the Copper Hill area for lunch.
However, Pappa Joe, in all his wisdom, suggested we stay closer to the start point in case it began to rain... So, we reversed the Big Frog Rd loop.
...Within minutes, it was raining...
Cold and wet ride back to Chattavegas, but it was worth it. Great ride today.

missed meeting everyone

Twisty, I am in the weather business and I checked radar @ 7 am and saw it coming so I went back to bed.....
News Channel 9 Zoom radar is accurate and up to the minute. Good source to see what's coming.

I will try to catch the next ride.
