    Hello all,
    I'm headed up to Hwy 60 and 129 tomorrow with my Fiance riding pillion. (In other words, I won't be doing any knee-dragging or triple-digits down 129)
    I'm meeting Joey-Dude on 400 at the BP Gas station on Exit 13 at 10:00.
    We may have a couple of others with us, so come-one / come-all if you want to enjoy the weather tomorrow in North Georgia. This will be my Fiance's first trip up into the mountains and it's supposed to be a beautiful day for riding!
    Contact me or Joey if you want to know more, or just plan on meeting us at the BP. (We'll probably just take Highway 9 up into the mountains, then go from there)
    Gary

    I'll be in N Ga again on monday. Continuing to dial in the rear suspension. I'll most likely be on 348, 17/75 and random roads in the area.

    Nice ride today, thanks Gary for setting up this ride! Seeing as how I took only one picture with a crappy phone camera here you go. This picture is of a T-Rex a 3 wheeled hybrid car/motorcycle. The story is that we stopped at TWO for lunch and the owner of the T-Rex stopped by and asked us for help getting it unstuck.

    So we ride up to help him and turns out the T-Rex's rear tire went over the asphalt onto the shoulder while attempting a 180 turn in a narrow road. The little ground clearance made the T-Rex stuck with the rear tire almost hanging off the asphalt. We, band of tough guys, lifted the T-Rex off the shoulder and got it back on the asphalt.

    As for the rest of the "pictures", we'll have to use mental imagery. Imagine 4 6th Gen VFRs, one white, one red, one RWB, one gray and a 5th red 5th Gen. Yup that's how the ride went.

    Oh, and we happend to run into daisy on top of 129 and we went for a little impromptu ride. :thumbsup:

    Hey, Joey, Mike, Matt, Sy & Daisy - It's Anna, Gary's Fiance. I had an awesome time with you boys yesterday. Thanks for letting me tag along. Hope I didn't slow you guys down too much. It was really nice to meet you all & would love to come along again sometime soon. Gary was laughing last night relaying our day's story to someone & commented on how much of a workout it had been. I agreed & then he laughed again, saying that HE got the workout, not me. Well, after sleeping like the dead last night & practically not being able to lift my arms today, I beg to differ. Holding on for dear life is QUITE a good workout! But it was great, and I thank you all again for putting up with a girl all day. Hope to see you all again!
    ~Anna

    I really enjoyed meeting everyone too! Maybe next time we can all kick in a few bucks and rent a cabin in the mountains to stay at for the night. I can't imagine anything better than a full day of riding followed by a cookout and soak in the hot tub with a cocktail or two. I guess Daisy is no longer a lurker in here...congrats on making your first post(s) at VFRW.

    Regards,
    Rollin

    red supra? Um, isn't your supra black or did you repaint it? Hey, how come you didn't join us?

    Cool, I'm glad to hear Gary's riding didn't scare you off ha ha! I got to recommend before next time to get a sargent seat it's much more comfy than the stock seat. You can get a good price on them from sandhillpowersports.com Oh, and get a membership at Gold's Gym hehe!!

    Yeah, we tried doing something like that last time. Next group ride I'd like to see if we can go to the cherohala skyway and the dragon. There are quite a few cabins/campgrounds in that area. That'd make for a cheap and fun place to stay. Regarding the hot tub just remember to keep your hands off Anna she's engaged ha ha!!

    Hey guys and gal - I had a blast riding with you last saturday too! Nice meeting some new folks I didn't know...Sy, Daisy, Gary, and Anna. I still don't know how Gary can ride faster with a passenger than I can ride alone! Anna is a cool chick who loves to ride fast! One of these days I'll get my wife up there, but we'll be going so slow none of you will want to ride with us!
