Perfect riding with lots of new friends!

Thanks Mark for routing us around the tri-state area on two days of excellent riding. Not a lot of photos, because I'd rather be riding, and it's was great to make new two wheel'd friends.
So here's our camp in the Christmas tree farm!


Pete's Place!


First day's mileage


Day one's done and the 450's showing signs of Florida accumulation


First nights excellent fire, which was much needed.


Saturday morning's sunrise over our camp


Crisp cool morning start to a beautiful day


Old mill in Georgia not far from our friend Dick Howard's place


Saturday's group at the mill bridge


First slick encountered on Saturday......


Everyone passed through cleanly.......except my nephew Caleb who was sporting a sm modded klx250. He survived with only a slightly modified shifter.


Covered bridge in Georgia under renovation


Waterfall close by in Georgia


I took the road less traveled to get here


It was a great two days of riding and look forward to riding with you guys again soon!

Thanks! I love the power and light weight handling, as opposed to my overweight everyday 2011 KLR650. Haha

Agrarian Jawja. Or was it Alobama?

KTM 535 with 540 stuff -- the one in the irrigation picture. How 'bout you?

Me 'n' Robin didn't stick around due to other commitment(s) and we were there only Saturday, but I have no idea who I rode with. Pretty sure I knew no more than 4 or 5 other guys by their real names, but probably would all of 'em by their ADV handles.

it was a good time, and an excellent route. Treeman done good!

I didn't roll in until after dark on Sat., my visit to Glendale Memorial Nature Preserve lasted longer than I had anticipated but it was time well spent, no regrets. When I pulled up, Treeman had a good fire going, Phil had enough tasty grub cooked up to feed all of us twice, Pete brought out a bottle of tequila he had been saving for 15 years...and we let the good times roll!

Many thanks to Treeman for hosting us once again; I took a few pics but haven't uploaded them yet, I'll get a round tuit eventually...

I thought Treeman posted in Alabama thread somewhere.

Thanks for taking the time to shoot and post the video, Victor. I enjoyed meeting and riding with everyone.

This was the first time I had the Tiger on dirt roads, it won't be the last!

Thanks Mark for putting this together and hosting, I had a blast.
