Ah, Rome GA, my hometown. Been about 35 years since I've lived there, but still a nice place, and it was a great place to grow up. The stretch between Chattannoga TN and Rome is lovely, US 27 is the primary route through there. Still have friends and relatives there, give me a shout out if you need anything when passing through.
Enjoying your report, had a '09 KLR that I still cannot explain why I sold! Great time to be riding through North GA!
