Laugh Weekday Ride Photo and video thread (N GA)

Was getting cabin fever last week and the Triumph was calling me for some exercise so I grabbed my good camera and the GoPro to go exploring.

I live in north west georgia and explored some nice new-to-me two lane country roads and even found some light off-roading on some power line trails to test the new Tiger Explorer a little.

Straight to the good stuff....

Here's an overview of the route I took

An old church I found south of hwy 140

Not far from the church, an old rusty one lane bridge...

Here's a shot of the Triumph peeking through the fence at me... "Lets go find some dirt!"

A Barn that was across the street...

an old house next to the road. I love these curvy back country roads with Zero traffic and lots of farms...

Finally found a pretty nice power line trail to test the Explorer on. This is the hardest off road I've taken it on yet. There was a point where I had to turn back since I was by myself and it got pretty damn steep.

I will have to go back on the street legal CR-F 450 and do some scouting. It did really well and the traction control turned to the "#2" setting helped on the hills for sure.

and now for the videos... first time doing this, it may take a time or two...
here's a small easier section of the power line trail..

Awesome photos!

May have to duplicate your route as it leaves from around my house. Guessing it may be more street oriented than my Berg will like but it will be fun to get out in this weather! Hit me up if you ever want to take that street legal crf450 out on a ride. (I have a non street legal crf-r as well).

Your northern route took you very close to The Big Frog Wildnerness area and Cohutta NF. There is a good 60ish mile gravel loop up there. Check out my friend's David G site at www.georgiaoverland.com for GPS tracks of that route and many more in north Georgia.

Yup, short power line trail.
Nice video anyway.
Even the sound is a beautiful thing.
Thanks

Thanks, I got on there and did find some good stuff. I am just now learning how to download gps tracks and get them in my unit. Very cool way to find new roads and dirt tracks without the old trial and error way. My CR-F isn't running right now, hopefully it will be a simple carb clean/ spark plug fix. We ride up at Moto Mountain park and Highland Park a lot. Moto mountain is close enough that I can ride the CR-F up there, do some trails and ride home (as long as I don't get stuck in the dark with the "headlight" that thing has.

Maybe we can meet up and ride up there this spring. Always good to ride with some new people.

Thanks... I brought the camera to get some off road footage and then forgot to turn the damn thing on till right there at the end. I didn't realize the trail would end right there. I LOVE how this bike sounds. Can't beat a Triumph Triple. Still getting used to how it rides "off road". It's no dirt bike but can hold it's own as long as you keep the speeds down on the rough stuff.
