    On a recent 250km ride on one of my favourite twisty loops, I swaped bikes with my friends Triumph Street Triple,
    I was very impressed with the bikes get up and go and ability to corner incredibly fast, but after 50k's, I stopped and asked for my bike back.
    To my surprise, she declined and took off. I had to chase her for a further 20k's before she would relent.
    She told me she was really surprised how well the bike did everything, and that she loved it. (she also mentioned that it went really well with her red hand bag)
    Nearly everyone who rides it is surprised, I guess that's why they have such a devoted following.

    Heck yes! I know these roads quite well. My wife grew up in that area and her parents still live in Sky Valley, Ga. It's some of the best riding for any bike!

    That gas station is directly across the street from TWO (two wheel only) campground. Rode N Georgia for about 5 years. Lots of great roads. Lots of fire trails and service road for those that get off road. Good article.

    I love it. Now to get the stator and regulator replaced on my '99 so I can get her back on the road and enjoy this excellent Colorado weather we are having.
