I'll see what I can come up with.

Looks like the two closest points are Jewell and Senoia (though I'm not familiar with his route), GA 16 runs straight across between them (118 mi) and I've ridden it east of 75, it's fairly scenic. Which usually indicates there's some good dirt thru there too, it goes thru a national forest and a state park. Anything further north and you'd be in the burbs unless you went way north, we've got a connector between Mtn. City and Hiawassee, and I believe there's a route or two up the west side of Atl.

See what you think and lemme know. Btw, got a couple new east/west corridors thru The Forest I think you'll like, not sure anyone else will.

Never have I seen a noob excel so fast as this Ahbi. Four days & hundreds of miles of NM dirt, gravel, desert sand rds, many slippery rock water crossings.
Rattle snakes can not wiggle like Ahbi, & he did not fall doing the ''Eye of the Warrior Dance''. This too was caught on vid.

Steep up hills...... at least once in the wrong gear, but made it.

Now where is that VID.......
Thank you Wolfgang and Dave for giving me training me with the "Baptism through fire" approach. It was quite interesting to be in a situation where I better learn or get washed out - no if and buts about that. And learn I did. What I learnt after my first wash out was - pin that sucker in first and look at the horizon and hang on. I loved it.

Fixation is not your friend.

Well done.....grasshopper

Believe I can safely say we won't be using that video as the new CADS recruiting tool.


Did a little recon yesterday, may incoporate some of this into a future Trans-Fla. ride, who knows. Big bikes would definitely rule in here.

Saw that one coming before I finished typing it.

Hey, recon is like Forest sez, 'ya never what yer gonna get'. I used to do it on the 1150 Adv. back when I could lift it out of a foot of sand and it was a bad idea then.

Oh, & I'm about ready to arm wrestle Matt for the rights to his DR. It's been in my garage for the better part of a year, I put a new rear tire on it, a new battery, & half the work of replacing a toasted starter Saturday afternoon. I feel entitled.

I could be back.

Well see, you're bigger than me, that's why I chose to ride this, plus I knew where we were going.





edit, just ride it, possession is 9/10 of the law.
